Greetings Flyer Families and Friends!We all know that the holidays are supposed to be times of togetherness and joy, but for many families they can be stressful and anxiety filled. The idea was brought to us to launch a drive to help a local family in need this holiday and everyone was excited to be a part of it.So here it is Flyers…The First Annual Lindbergh Adopt-A Family Program! This year we will be supporting the family of a local woman, recently divorced and living in supportive housing with her 7 children. She’s a graduate of Divine Child and works full time but is having a hard time making ends meet. The children range in ages from 6 to 18, two of which have a disability. Each family member took some time and wrote out a wish list. The lists are far from flashy and contain many simple necessities. Things like fluffy blankets and pillows, twin sheets, household supplies, boots and shoes. They also include fun things like footballs, Pokemon cards, scrunchies, Popsockets, gift cards and purses. We’d love to make this a holiday to remember for this family so here’s where we come in Flyers!! We understand not everyone is able to get into the school to choose a tag so we’ve established 4 ways for you to donate:1. Select a tag from the “gift tree” that we have placed in the lobby. Wrap the gift, attach the tag and place in the bins we will place in the lobby. Take some time to look at the tags, there are some good ones in there! Again, they aren’t flashy and many are only in the $5 range.2. Drop a gift card in the office in ANY denomination (no gift is too small) to one of the following locations: Target, Amazon, Kroger OR Aldi 3. Send a check to school in your child’s folder made out to “LINDBERGH PTA“. Please place in an envelope labeled “GIFT DRIVE” 4. The PTA will have a table and donation jar at Bingo for Books this Friday to collect cash donations, things already purchased and help w tag selection!
These are by no means the only ways to give. We are open to suggestions. The only thing that is FIRM is the deadline.DEADLINE FOR DONATIONS IS DECEMBER 16th We’ve already gotten things rolling with EXTREMELY generous gifts from Executive Dentistry in Dearborn and The Dearborn Goodfellows!(If you know of a Lindbergh family that could use some help this season, please contact Ms. Tiba or any PTA board member) Questions/donation arrangements can be sent to:Danielle Lewis – email@example.comSarah Neubauer – Neubauer156@gmail.comThanks to everyone in advance and Happy Holidays!
This week our school will be supporting the “Battle Against Hunger” food drive initiative. As a school, we understand the importance of supporting those in need and giving back to the community. To increase participation in this great cause, we will have a pajama day on Thursday, November 21. In order to participate in pajama day, we are asking for each child to bring in at least two canned and/or boxed non-perishable food items to school for donation.
If you are interested in joining the fun, please remember:
Wear regular shoes-no slippers
Come to school in jammies that are appropriate for school and the weather
Greetings everyone! This is a great year of recognition for Lindbergh Elementary. Next week, Dr. Maleyko, Ms. Knaus and myself will fly to Washington D.C. to attend the National Blue Ribbon Ceremony. Lindbergh Elementary and 362 other schools nationwide will be recognized by Betsy Devos for the exceptional work we are doing. What an honor!
As you are receiving your mail this month, please look for this months First Bell, our school has front page. Definitely a highlight and something to share with friends and family.
None of these accomplishments would be possible if it weren’t for our community. Our ability to support, collaborate and work tirelessly for our students is exceptional. Through this our students understand the importance of school and community involvement.
Winter is just around the corner. Our goal is to go outside during recess every chance we get. The only time we will be staying inside is if the actual temperature or wind-chill is 20 degrees F or lower and/or if it is wet. As the weather changes it is important that students are dressed appropriately.
This includes hats, gloves, snow boots, etc… Please remember to label all clothing with your student’s name. If your child has lost or misplaced something, please check the lost and found lockers located across from the office.
We hope you are checking the monthly menu to make your lunch plans with your children. We now have some days that offer three options and students seem to really enjoy the options.
The PTA has some important events coming up that I felt warranted reminders. First, our Holiday Boutique will be held Saturday, November 9th. It will be another successful event with all of your help! Second, the Santa Shop will be coming in December. Please watch for further details. Our next PTA meeting will be held on Nov. 19th
at 7 PM.
Student-Led Conferences continue next week. The remaining two conferences are Tuesday, November 12, 2019 and Thursday, November 14, 2019 from 4:30-7:30 PM.
We want to send a special shout-out and thank you to the parents for all of the amazing food donations during our Student-Led Conference nights. It truly means a great deal to have your support.
Our Leadership Work
This year we will be working on aligning our goals to support the bigger picture. Grade level teams have developed WIG’s to support our School Improvement Goals and created action steps to ensure that the goals are met. Please take a look at the bulletin boards posted in the hallways to find out more. From those, the students have created individual goals in both reading and math. Over the course of the year, teachers and students will be discussing these goals and providing opportunities to share them with you. Feedback is always appreciated and welcomed.
CITY BEAUTIFUL REPS
This year our City Beautiful Representatives are
Ben Ross and Alora Bazzi. Miss Polidori is the faculty representative. The All School Breakfast was held and City Beautiful representatives from all schools were able to meet with the mayor and other important officials.
