PTA Welcome Message

A warm welcome to our incoming Leonard R. Flynn families and siblings! We want to help you learn more about Flynn, answer any questions you have and keep you posted on upcoming events for incoming families.

Our website has lots of valuable information about Flynn, including the daily schedule, after school options, enrichment programs and much more.

Check out our Facebook page to see what’s happening in the Flynn Community.

As we schedule events for incoming Flynn families, we will post them to our Flynn Yahoo Group. We are planning a meet and greet coffee, several play dates and an orientation with the teachers closer to the start of school.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming your family to our Flynn Community!
