December Newsletter

December 2019

We would like to extend the warmest of wishes to you for a safe and peaceful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.  

This month has been filled with tons of events and celebrations and we enjoyed having you be a part of them. We are grateful for all your support in making these school years for our children so memorable.   

WEATHER CHANGES

Our goal is to go outside during recess every chance we get.  If the real feel is 20 degrees (F) or above we will be outside.  This is also used to decide if we have indoor line-up that day. The weather is changing and it is important to check the weather in the morning for the day. 

Students should be dressed appropriately for the weather.  They will be allowed to play in the snow if they have the proper attire.  The proper attire to access the snow is snow pants, snow boots, hats, gloves and a warm jacket.  We appreciate your support in reinforcing independence by teaching them to put on their attire by themselves.    

GIVING BACK

Adopt-a-Family

Thank you to everyone that donated to help support a family in need.  Your generosity and willingness to always pay-it-forward has a great impact on shaping the lives of everyone around you and for that we are appreciative.  More information can be found on our PTA Facebook homepage, including a photo of all the gifts.  

Ronald McDonald House

We will be giving to C.S. Mott’s children’s hospital. Since they opened in 1989 they have welcomed over 23,000 families and friends to stay in the Ronald McDonald house in Ann Arbor.  The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families of children experiencing a serious illness or injury required hospitalization in the Ann Arbor area.

The Ronald McDonald House needs pop tabs to turn in and they can recycle them for money.  Please bring your pop tabs to school and put them in your classroom container. We are collecting until the end of May.

Collecting pop tabs is a good way to inspire to recycle, and it is helping ill children and their families.  The tabs usually come from soda cans, soup cans,and any aluminum container.

Lindbergh Adopt-A Family Program

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 – ddoliveriolewis@gmail.com Sarah Neubauer – Neubauer156@gmail.comThanks to everyone in advance and Happy Holidays!

Pajama Day for Battle for Hunger tomorrow Nov. 21, 2019.

Lindbergh Flyers,

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

Thank you for your help!
