Welcome to Huckleberry Hill School! Our school is one of two elementary schools in Lynnfield, Massachusetts that serves children in kindergarten through grade four. New families are encouraged and welcome to participate in all aspects of the school’s many activities. The P.T.O. offers many opportunities for individual participation and interactions within the Huckleberry Hill School community. We are very fortunate to have parents who unselfishly offer their time to help organize special activities. Parents are also welcome to volunteer in the classrooms or media center with reading, computers or math. Prior to this type of involvement, all volunteers must complete a CORI with us every 3 years and attend one of several Volunteer Orientations offered throughout the year.
In recent years we have been able to provide a variety of enrichment programs which complement the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks in many academic areas (eg: social studies, science, physical education, music, art, etc.). Audubon Ark: Winter Survival & “Hatching Out”; Explore the Ocean World, Now Voyager; Amelia Earhart, & Plimouth Plantation; Historical Perspectives and, Discovery Museum’s Lights and Lasers; and, Electromagnetism from the Museum of Science and The Sky Connection from EduTarium are some examples.
We have a fourth grade Kindness & Leadership Committee that meets regularly after school to promote school spirit and community involvement. Examples of this Committee’s endeavors are the collection of food and clothing for various local shelters and food pantries and other community service and character & spiritbuilding projects.
Through the collaborative efforts of our school system’s commitment to improve technology education and through various state grants as well as the P.T.O., our classrooms have smoothly moved into the twentyfirst century. All classrooms currently have installed Smart Board technology. We are constantly supplementing our technology equipment with additional software programs. The school building has been totally wired for the internet and we are continuously updating our school’s web page. Our web address is: www.lynnfield.k12.ma.us
