Well the school year is about to begin! We are so looking forward to having all of you here at Lindbergh! There are some new faces at Lindbergh! We welcome Mrs. Pina Prather, Secretary, Mrs. Liz Golen, Clerk, and Miss Katie Schropp, Young 5’s Teacher! Please introduce yourselves when you see them!
Our school received a grant from the I AM A LEADER FOUNDATION to support our decision to become a Leader in Me school in June! Our staff has had 4-5 days of training on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and how it helps us be successful with our work on The Leader in Me. This was all on their vacation time! Their commitment to your children and our school is evidence of our success! We appreciate them.
Attached is a copy of the Welcome Back letter that went home in the mail. You should have received it already or will soon!

Dear Lindbergh Parents,
Welcome back to the 2015-16 school year! We are all looking forward to a wonderful, productive year! We are so happy to say we are starting our journey to being A Leader in Me school. More details will come on this exciting announcement. Our new entrance will soon be complete. Please be patient with us while we work on the changes for it.
The first day of school, Tuesday, Sept. 8th, is a half day of school. The first bell to enter the building will sound at 8:35 AM with the tardy bell sounding at 8:40 AM. Dismissal for all half days is 11:45 AM. Wednesday, September 3rd will be a full day of school. Regular dismissal time is 3:35 PM. Please make a note of the school office phone: 313-827-6300. It is important to call the school every time your child is going to be absent, tardy, or needs an early dismissal from class so that unnecessary calls to you may be avoided. If your student arrives after 8:40 a.m. (9:40 a.m. on late start days) you must come into the office to sign in your student.
We will be having a soft start for Young 5’s and Kindergarten this year. Students will attend school Tuesday, Sept. 8 to Friday, Sept. 11 from 8:40-11:45 AM. Parents will be asked to sign up for a time to bring their student to school for another small assessment of their present readiness skills. It is an exciting time for our new young friends and our staff.
For parents of students new to Lindbergh this year K-5, there will be a short meeting on Tuesday, September 8th in the auditorium shortly after the 8:40 entry bell to introduce our PTA officers and to discuss our positive behavior support system. We are looking forward to sharing our behavior plan with you. Parents, students, teachers and staff are important members of a team to help our students shine and become strong members of society while attending our school.
There will be three lunch periods again this year. Grades 1 & 5 will be from 11:30-12:00, Young 5’s, Kindergarten & 4th from 12:00-12:30, and grades 2 & 3 from 12:30-1:00. We will be talking about the procedures with the students to make for a smooth lunch time. No one should feel rushed and should be able to get outside daily. The price for lunch is $2.50, reduced lunch price is $0.40, and milk will be $0.50. This year breakfast will be served from 8:15-8:35 AM. The cost is $1.25 and the reduced price is $0.30. You can send a check made out to Dearborn Public Schools to prepay for breakfasts or lunches at any time.
Class lists will be posted on the doors on the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 4th by 4:00 PM. If your child’s name is not on any list, please report to the office the first day of school. The teachers will be coming outside to pick up the students every morning. Please see the following list to see where your student(s) should line up:
