Are you interested in helping to make a coordinated Kingfield garage sale happen this year? It can still happen if we bring together a critical mass of interest and energy! Join us on Tuesday, June 2nd at 7 pm at Anodyne to talk about the possibilities.
Many neighborhood parents are concerned about the Changing School Options plans. While we do not know what that end result will be, it is likely that there will be a closer relationship with Lyndale School. The Lyndale and Kingfield neighborhood associations, along with Lyndale School, have offered to co-host an evening event to learn about Lyndale School. This meeting is NOT intended to discuss any of the options currently in front of the Board. The meeting is to learn about the school, its current academic and enrichment programs, and why it is considered by the district to be a high-quality school. The purpose is to build a relationship with its immediate neighbors so that, no matter the outcome of Changing Schools, neighbors can make informed decisions about their involvement with Lyndale School.
When: Tuesday, June 2, from 6:30-7:30 pm.
Where: Lyndale Elementary School, 312 West 34th St.
What: A presentation by the principal, the PTO president, and some teachers
To RSVP, please call the school: 668-4000
For question, please call Elizabeth Short, PTO president, 827-5235
Childcare will be offered.

The residents of the 4200 block of Garfield Avenue South in the Kingfield neighborhood are organizing a benefit to raise money to help pay the medical bills incurred by five-year-old Gabriel Grieling after being run over by a Minneapolis school bus on February 25, 2009. Up until the day before the accident Gabriel and his mother were living on our block with his paternal grandparents Ralph and Linda Grieling. We are a close-knit block and are coming together as a community in order to help the Greiling family.
Garfield resident Kevin Kling, who is a nationally recognized playwright and storyteller best known for his commentary on the NPR show All Things Considered will be headlining the show. Also on the bill are next-door neighbors Rosie Cole and Lloyd Brant who are best known for their popular comedy act The Wacky Chicken Show. Kevin, Rosie and Lloyd will lead an impressive line-up of entertainment that are coming together for the Gabriel Grieling Benefit.
With Sincere Thanks,
The Neighbors of the 4200 Garfield Ave. So.
