The proposed bond measure is estimated not to increase the current tax rate. Redmond School District will upgrade and update all of our schools to provide healthy, safe, and secure campuses that are modern and efficient.

Our Principal

This is my thirtieth year working in the Redmond School District. I taught in Redmond for 24 years at the elementary and middle school levels. This is my 5th year as the principal of M.A. Lynch Elementary. I have the greatest job, because I get to share in the lives of hundreds of amazing kids and families. 

I grew up participating in 4-H and FFA showing horses and sheep.  I was raised on a ranch and learned the value of chores. I adore the outdoors and working with animals. I also enjoy baking, science (especially Space Science) and meeting new people. 

My goal for our school is embodied in our mission statement: Empower All to learn, grow and succeed. I know that working as a team and supporting each other creates high levels of student success. I love my job and am thankful everyday that I get to be on this educational journey.

According to the Internet Surname Database, Lynch is an Irish name which means, roughly, “the descendant of the mariner.”

M.A. Lynch was one of Redmond’s earliest merchants, opening the Lynch & Roberts department store there in 1910. He later served as Deschutes County’s sole member of the state House of Representatives, in 1933.

The school which bears his name opened in 1965.
