Principal's Message

Dear Tiger Staff, Students, Parents and Community Members,
I am extremely excited about starting a new school year at Lynwood Middle School.  In the short time at LMS, I have had the pleasure of experiencing several wonderful events such as our MESA team accolades, congratulating our girls soccer team for placing first in the Think Together tournament, speaking at a packed AVID event or watching our students compete in the Orange County Pentathlon.  All of these events, as well as others, have been remarkable.  However, it is now time to turn the page and write a new chapter in the LMS story.  
The start of the 2017-18 school year gives us the opportunity to build of the past successes and create new ones.  One of our constant goals is to prepare our students for high school, college and career.  So, we have added Medical Detectives to go along with our Engineering Courses.  Both courses will articulate with our high schools so students can continue there and beyond.  In addition, the music program has been revamped to service more students. As we add new experiences for our kids, the core classes have gotten stronger due to teachers collaborating in the summer and committing to common teaching strategies to improve student learning.  
As always, I am humbled to work with such awesome students, caring and dedicated staff members, and supportive parents.  Join me in this year's journey as we redefine success at our school. Together we can continue to make LMS a special place for everyone!  
John Terry - Principal

Women's History Month

March is National Women’s History Month. We celebrate the achievements of women, and womanhood. We honor the many women who have shaped our history, and also celebrate those who make progress in our time. We honor the historic achievements of courageous women who pioneered professional and social change through their fearless work. We remember the sacrifices our mothers, sisters, and daughters made to make us succeed. American women have led movements for social and economic justice, made groundbreaking scientific discoveries, enriched our culture with stunning works of art and literature, and charted bold directions in our foreign policy. They have served our country with valor in the battlefields. In this month of March, and every day, let us pause and salute our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, aunts and every woman everywhere.

Black History Month

February is Black History Month, and Black History is a huge part of the American History and Cultural Experience. We pause now and through the year to recognize and honor the achievements and contributions of Black Americans and Black American culture to American History and Culture. We celebrate various achievements made in the areas of Agriculture, Education, Civil Rights, Politics and Government, Military and National Security, Science and Technology, Aerospace Engineering, Sports, Music and Entertainment, Architecture, Medicine, and other aspects of life. The Black American Journey has been long and rough. Progress has been made over the years, but there is still more work to be done.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

We celebrate the life and achievements of a great American and Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He had a dream of social change and full civil rights for all Americans. He led a nonviolent civil rights movement and successfully protested against racial discrimination in federal and state laws. He exhibited values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service. We honor his selfless acts that created a legacy of hope and healing in America.

Happy New Year 2017

Happy New Year 2017 to all of you. View the world with a positive outlook, speak your heart out with confidence, listern to others as well as your inner voice. Lets work together to make the world a better place for ourselves and for others. We look forward to amazing and astonishing you this new year.
