In addition, the board is set to hear from Lynnwood Mayor Christine Frizzell, who will celebrate the students who participated in the Mayor’s Challenge that began in January

Finally, the board will read a policy pertaining to holidays that calls for the day after Thanksgiving to be referred to as Native American Heritage Day.
