School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.

Bullying Prevention Pledge in Dearborn and across the State on the First Week of School

Bullying Prevention Pledge in Dearborn and across the State on the First Week of School

Greetings Everyone,

To further support our on-going efforts to address bullying behavior our District will join with hundreds of schools, colleges, and businesses on the first day of school(or first couple of days pending logistical concerns in the schools) and take a pledge against bullying. I am also asking all employees to take the pledge and I will lead by example as we take the pledge at ASC on Tuesday afternoon. All School or Department heads should plan to have this done in a setting of your choice the first couple of days of school. In addition, the Board of Education will take the pledge at our September 12 regular P-12 meeting.

This pledge is part of a program being promoted by the State Superintendent and the Michigan Federation of Teachers. Here is a link to a website that explains the model.

#Day1 Works byâ?¦.

A person in authority leading the pledge

Clearly stating behavior expectations and responsibilities

Addressing the issue early (on Day 1 or the First Week!)

Getting verbal confirmation back that it is understood

I informed all faculty about this during my presentations the past two weeks and a letter was sent to the community and parents informing them about the pledge. I hope that everyone had a fantastic labor day weekend. The excitement with our students starts tomorrow.

Incoming Young 5s and Kindergarteners!!!!!

Welcome to Lindbergh future Flyers! I hope your summer is going well! I wanted to remind you that we will be having a Soft start for the first week for all Young Five and Kindergarten students. They will be dismissed at 11:45 AM each day. Students will be invited back for brief assessments from the teachers by appointment. For those families who need childcare, there is an excellent pay to participate program available through our Early Childhood department. I am attaching the flyer information for your convenience. Please call them to reserve your spot!

Soft Start Childcare Program
The Early Childhood/Kids Club program at your school is offering the Soft Start Childcare for Kindergarten students participating in the Soft Start Program. Care begins immediately after Soft Start and ends at 3:35 when the school regular day is over.
Your child will:
• Eat lunch – please bring lunch the first day and then send lunch or lunch money for school lunch.
• Have outdoor recess (weather permitting)
• Enjoy age appropriate crafts, activities, games with a highly qualified, licensed childcare provider.
• Pre-registration and pre-payment is required so please call 827-8350 or email the Early Childhood Programs office at stovers@dearbornschools.org for more information or to receive a registration form.

Summer News

Hey Lindbergh flyers!
Don’t forget about the summer library program at Lindbergh! Tuesdays from 9-12 and Wednesdays from 1-4, through August 19. Join up for book checkout, reading, science experiments, crafts, games and to hang out with friends. (Computers are available too for our summer Moby Max practice, and I’m thinking of all those going-into-6th graders that need to work on Moby Max, iLearn and Khan Academy!)

Mrs.DeNeen got an email about what schools are using moby max. Many schools are going on more than we are. Let’s get busy and show them we can do more!!!

Stranger Danger Reminder

April 26, 2016

Dear Lindbergh families-

Just a reminder!
Spring is the time of year when we hear of strangers approaching children in neighborhoods, parks, shopping centers and around schools. It is important for you to please use this opportunity to remind your children of the danger of talking to strangers and to always be alert and aware of their surroundings.

Police are investigating incidents where someone in a blue focus (?) has approached and talked to students. I sent home a note on stranger danger earlier in the month and we want everyone to continue to be aware and alert.

Our school has always been and will continue to be a safe haven for your children. Working together we will keep our neighborhoods safe and crime free.
Thank you!

Mrs. DeNeen, principal
