A Brief History...
Lynnville faculty and students share pride in the community values of education, character and family. Lynnville Elementary School excels in academics and student achievement; students at Lynnville Elementary frequently score well above the ISTEP [state standardized test] averages. Our students and faculty are proud to have been designated an Indiana Department of Education "Four-Star" School several times in the past few years.
Lynnville Elementary School's mascot is the Spirit of St. Louis, the airplane flown by Charles Lindbergh, the first solo pilot to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Lindbergh's nickname was "Lucky Lindy." The Lynnville "Lindies" exemplify the spirit and bravery which carried Lindbergh through his daring voyage. Lynnville students are encouraged to share Lindbergh's work qualities when pursuing academic and personal endeavors.
Lynnville Elementary School has close ties with our community. Our school is a host site for community fundraisers and community festivals. The Lynnville Lions Club sponsors our end-of-year Awards Day program. Additionally, each November, students, faculty, and staff present a memorable Veterans Day Program, which many community Veterans and community members attend. During the holidays, many students from our school also participate in the annual Lynnville Community Holiday Parade, and Student Council members make treat baskets to share with shut-ins and nursing home residents.
