MAP Testing

Our 3rd-8th graders wrapped up their Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) testing and our 8th graders will finish their End of Course (EOC) testing in the next two weeks.(May 5th & May 12th). Our students have persevered all year and showed great work ethic as they took these state level assessments. Both the MAP and EOC tests were cancelled last year. So, for our 3rd and 4th graders, this was their first state test experience. We are proud of all of our students and for the work that our teaching staff has put forth during this most unusual year.

We enjoyed our Spring Fling Concert

Our PreK-4th grade and middle school band and choir did a great job tonight at our Spring Fling. We appreciated the huge turnout and LOVED seeing EVERYONE!

Senior Send Off Was A SUCCESS

We were able to continue our tradition of SENDING OFF OUR SENIORS. Each year we invite back our ELS ALUMNI who are high school seniors and enjoy a little breakfast and then send them off with a special send off. We are so excited for them to come back and for our 8th graders to spend a little time with them and get some insider advice. It was a great morning.

Welcoming New Faces & Switching Places

The East Lynne School District would like to welcome the following individuals to our East Lynne Family for the 2021-2022 school year. Some of these individuals are new faces and others simply switching places! We look forward to growing together with these individuals and working together to fulfill our mission and vision of EVERY STUDENT... EVERY DAY!
