Tell us about your student-led transition team

Lynn Haven Elementary has a Student Ambassador program to welcome and mentor our new military students.

In preparation for our Veterans Day event, our students create notes and works of art to decorate the halls in support of our special visitors.

How do military children access mental health services on your campus?
