Kids Heart Challenge Update

Greeting Flyers Family,
We kicked off our Kids Heart Challenge program (formerly Jump Rope for Heart)and our school’s event is right around the corner! Your child is learning how nutrition and being active can help us live longer, healthier lives!
If you would like to support the Kids Heart Challenge, simply follow the link listed below.  We are encouraging all of our students to “Take the Challenge”, choose water over sugary drinks, exercise for 60 minutes daily or do a kind deed.  If we can get 50% of our student population here at Lindbergh to Take the Challenge, we will be able to receive $500 to purchase new PE equipment for the students to enjoy!  We are only 23 students away!  The deadline to register and/or raise donations for the American Heart Association is Friday, March 1st.  Let’s all get healthier together!
Jump online, take the Challenge and be a Heart Hero!
Donations Raised for American Heart Association $8,380
Total Students “Taking the Challenge” 141
Thank you so much for supporting our school and the American Heart Association!
Mr. Harvey

STEM interest for 2019-2020 school year

STEM Middle School would like to thank everyone for their interest in attending our school for the 2019-2020 school year.  To answer the most popular question we hear, there is no application process in order to be considered for STEM for those students who attend Dearborn Public Schools; instead, invitations will be sent out to all those 5th grade students in the district that are found to be eligible.  To be eligible students must have the following:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP.

 Our hope is to have invitations sent out to all eligible 5th grade students by the end of February.  From there, students who receive an invitation and indicate that they are interested in actually attending STEM in the fall, will be selected by lottery.  We will accept a final number of 60 students in to our 2019-2020 6th grade class.

If you live within the Dearborn Public Schools, and do not currently attend a Dearborn Public School, OR you are currently a 6th or 7th grader and would like to apply for a POSSIBLE empty slot, an application will be available on the STEM Middle School website (https://stem.dearbornschools.org/) under the tab “ADMISSIONS” starting in mid-February.   Invitations will be sent out to grade students that meet the below standards:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP

 Once again, thank you for your interest in STEM Middle School – a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School for Academic Excellence.

Morning Drop-off and Afternoon Pick-up

Lindbergh Community,

It has been brought to my attention that more drivers have been using the staff parking lot to drop off students-please remember that no drop-offs or pick-ups should happen in the parking lot as it poses a safety concern and makes it challenging for staff to get into the parking lot.  We would appreciate it if all drivers are dropping off and picking up from the designated areas around the school.  Also, as the temperatures continue to drop please remember that indoor line-up and access to the building begins at 8:25am.  Any students wanting to eat breakfast may then enter the building at 8:15am.  They are to remain in the cafeteria until 8:25am.  There is no supervision prior to those times.  We appreciate your understanding and support in these matters.

Have a great day-stay warm!

Safety First!

Dear Parents,

 

During this month’s PTA meeting we discussed Habit 1-Be Proactive.  This habit spends some time teaching us about our circle of control as well as our circle of influence.   There are things in our everyday lives that we can control and others that we can only influence.  When we think about our circle of control, these are things we are responsible for and have the ability to change.  One thing that I have found important to highlight today is road safety.  We all play an important role in how we are modeling safety for our students.  Please take some time to read through some ways we can continue to model and ensure our school is a safe environment specifically during arrival and dismissal times.

  • School begins at 8:35 and breakfast at 8:15-please don’t drop off your child before those times as there is no supervision.
  • Drive carefully and park a safe distance from crosswalks (cars are allowed to park 30 ft. from stop signs and 20 ft. from crosswalks).
  • Use the crosswalk at all times and avoid crossing in the middle of the street and/or in between cars.
  • Park in designated parking areas-do not use the staff parking lot and please do not park/block the neighbor’s driveways.
  • We recommend that we try to have our driving families follow a voluntary one way driving around the building: west on Myrtle, north on Waverly and East on Lodge Lane, this will allow traffic to flow much better.

The Dearborn police will be doing random checks on the safety of parent drivers in our community.

Finally, I want to remind everyone that safety is our top priority and although we cannot control the actions of others, we can definitely have an influence on their actions by following the above mentioned safety measures.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding and drive safe.

 

Ms. Tiba

Giving Thanks!

Dear Lindbergh Families,

It is that time of year again when we begin to reflect on all of the things we are thankful for.  This year I am extremely thankful for being given the opportunity to join such a supportive and understanding community.  I am thankful for being able to come in every morning and welcome such amazing and positive children, staff and families.  Thank you for everything you do and continue to do for Lindbergh.  Without your support none of this would be possible.

Goodbye to 2017 and Welcome to 2018.  May the new year fill your hearts with serenity and peace.  Have a great holiday break and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!
