We know that many may not have talked about it much at home yet but as we begin our journey we hope to see an increase in these discussions! We thank you in advance for taking the time to fill this out. Just click on the link below:

September 2015 Lindbergh NEWS

September 2015

Welcome to Lindbergh School!    We are happy to have your children with us! I would like to welcome new staff members: Pina Prather, Secretary, Liz Golen, Clerk, Kathryn Schropp, Young 5’s teacher, and Yvette Abela, Noon Hour Supervisor.  We are excited to have them with us!  We wish Ms. Cathy and Ms. Donna good health as they start on a new path in their lives! They will be missed!  We will have two classes of each grade from Y5-5th.  Then we also have two split classes a 2/3 and a 4/5.  Our staff is looking forward to another wonderful year here at Lindbergh Elementary.  We all completed four days of training on The Leader in Me and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People!  You will notice some changes as we go through the year.  We are very excited to be bringing out the leader in your children too!  This is all possible from a grant we received from the I AM A LEADER FOUNDATION.   A few parents trained with us on the Habits as well.  We will have a parent information night later in the fall and hope to begin classes for The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. Thank you to Mrs. Stetz, Mrs. Wright, Mrs. Wilkie and Mrs. DeNeen for presenting for the district professional development.  Many of our staff participated in training over the summerto help them better prepare for the instruction of our students.

Please be sure to check out the Dearborn Schools website at: www.dearbornschools.org

We have our own school website as well:

www.dearbornschools.org/Lindbergh

You will be able to see information on Lindbergh as well as what is going on in the entire district such as calendars etc.

We had some renovations done this summer. As you notice, the entry to the office has changed.  This is part of our new security system. It is not yet completely operational but soon all doors will be open just for arrival and dismissal but will be locked all day. You

will need to be buzzed into the building when you come to volunteer or pick up children at times other than dismissal.

 

Our building has been cleaned from top to bottom several times with all of the construction.  Everything looks great!  We thank Mr. Kevin, Mat, and Vivian for all of their hard work.

ATTENDANCE

We hope your children will be able to attend school every day.  However we know illnesses occur.  Please report your child’s absence or tardy by calling the school office at 313-827-6300 before 9am.  This is essential for the safety of your children.  If we do not know the whereabouts of a student, we are instructed to notify the police, so please take a moment to call the office.  Also please try to schedule doctor or dentist appointments for your children before or after school or on days off.

SCHOOL HOURS

School starts at 8:40 AM and dismisses at 3:35 PM.  The entry bell will ring at 8:35 AMLate Start days will begin at 9:35 AM.  It is very important for

children to be in school on time!   Half days will dismiss at 11:45 AM unless otherwise noted.  If your child is tardy, they must first report to the office to sign in before going to the classroom. The children will be lining up on the playgrounds in the morning just like last year.  Grades K-2 will line up on the south playground and grades 3-5 will be on the east playground.  Please see the doors to see where each classroom is to line up.  There will be no one available to supervise the children before school (unless you are participating in the paid childcare program here). Safeties will not be reporting to posts until 8:25 AM so no one should arrive prior to that time.

Teachers will be picking up and dismissing students from the same doors.  Parents are welcome to come into the building through the office and sign in before going to any classroom.  Please help us to establish a safe routine for the children. Teachers are always willing to meet with parents.  Please try not to drop in before school.  Teachers are busy with the essential preparation of the day so your students have an optimum learning environment.  It is best to make an appointment in order to not disrupt the instructional day for students and you will be able to discuss your child’s needs directly with the teacher.

SUPPLIES

The State of Michigan requires that certain supplies are supplied by the school districts.  We are obligated to supply 1 box of crayons per semester, pencils (1 a month for gr.1-2 and 5 per year for gr. 3-5), pens (2 per yr. for gr. 4-5), writing paper in limited quantities, and other items for classrooms such as rulers, scissors, workbooks for math, etc.

We appreciate your help in providing extra supplies for your child from time to time.  Lists of suggested items for each grade level went home last year but your teachers will send a list again.  Many of the teachers are posting their suggested supply lists on their blogs.  It is also on the Lindbergh school website under supplies.  Please check the website for that information.  Thank you for your support.

 BREAKFAST and LUNCH

Breakfast will be served from 8:15-8:35 AM in the cafeteria.  Breakfast costs are $1.25 full pay and $0.30 for the reduced price.  The elementary lunches are $2.50 full play and reduced is $0.40.  Milk is $0.50.  Snacks are available for purchase and the price list will be in the cafeteria.  We are working to have a more nutritious choice of snacks for the children this year.  Just a reminder: we serve Halal chicken nuggets and patties and hotdogs.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school.  We accept prepayment for lunches and it is very convenient for all.  You can send cash or check payable to Dearborn Public Schools in advance.  Lunch charges are meant for emergencies only and should be paid off as soon as possible preferably by the end of the month. Lunch forms for assistance must be filled out every year.  If you feel your family needs this, please send in one form for your entire family as soon as possible.

There will be three lunch periods this school year.  They will be as follows:

11:30-12:00 Grades 1 and 5, 4/5

12:00-12:30 Kindergarten, Y5 and Grade 4

12:30-1:00   Grades 2 and 3, 2/3

The older children will be going outside first and eating second.  It will be reversed for the younger students. Teachers take the students out for additional recess time either at the beginning or end of their lunch whichever is the outdoors portion.

OPEN HOUSE

Open House will be on Thursday, September 17th from 6:00-7:30 PM.  We hope you will be able to join us.  Bring the family to see our school, the classrooms, and meet Special area teachers as well.  Please remember this is not a conference night but be sure to sign up for conferences while meeting the teacher.

PTA

The first PTA meeting will be Tuesday, Sept. 15th at 7:00 PM.  Please come and show your support of our school.  We appreciate all the wonderful work our parents do for our school.  Please join the PTA and participate in any of the many wonderful events they sponsor.  One of the first events is coming up – the BOOK FAIR.  Information will be coming out soon.  A calendar of events will be coming home monthly to help you plan.

We appreciate your help with all of your contributions. We are still collecting Box Tops and Campbell’s labels.  You can help support us just by doing your normal shopping at Kroger and Target too.  To participate in the Kroger Reward Program or if you already shop at Kroger, you can go to www.krogercommunityrewards.com to enroll or renew.  Choose Charles A Lindbergh Elementary PTA as the organization.  Watch for a list to come home soon to show all the ways you can help.  We are also recycling ink jet cartridges and cell phones.  These collection boxes are located in the hallway across from the cafeteria.

sure to attend the first meeting to help us work on completing our executive board.

The new officers are:

President:         Vanessa Mkrtumian

Mother VP:     Amanda LeFranc

Father VP:       Eric Mattison

Secretary:        Jessica Agius-Tracy

Treasurer:        Amy Fradkin

SAFETY FOR ALL

It is essential that all families respect the safety of students and teachers at Lindbergh.  Please remember to watch for others when dropping off or picking up students.  We would request that students do not cross the street to run to the car.  They can either walk to the corner to cross and then walk back to the car or parents must come across to get them.  Last year our Safety Committee recommended that we try to have our driving families follow a voluntary one way driving around the building: west on Myrtle, north on N. Waverly and east on Lodge Lane.  Students can exit your vehicle on the curbside closest to the school this way.  Also, there is to be NO student drop off or pick up in the teacher parking lot or the drive way off Myrtle.  The lot is reserved for staff parking only and cannot be used for student drop off or pick up.  Make sure your students know about good bus behavior as well as their bus number.  We appreciate your consideration in following these rules.

 Children often have changes in their routines.  Please send your child’s schedule to their teacher.  If the teachers know when the students should be going on the bus or Kid’s Club or going home with you or someone else, we can avoid any problems.  If there is a change from the normal routine, you need to send a note to the teacher and notify the office.  Thank you.

LINDBERGH WATCHDOGS PROGRAM was implemented last year and is off to a great start.  We had several fathers volunteer to be a “WatchDog” for the day assisting throughout the building and in their student’s classroom.  At the end of the day, our WatchDog Dads were impressed with seeing firsthand the learning process going on at Lindbergh School.  Please consider signing up to volunteer in this wonderful program.  If you are interested you must first complete the volunteer/chaperone form for approval.  There will be the Pizza Night with Dads introduction to WatchDogs.  Please watch for more news!

SUBSTITUTE NOON HOUR SUPERVISORS are needed to work in the cafeteria during lunchtime from 11:15 am to 1:15 pm on occasion.  This is a paid position when you apply through the Dearborn Board of Education, Human Resources Department.  We hope you will consider applying!

 DRESS CODE REMINDER

All students are reminded that even in warm weather they are required to dress appropriately.  In an elementary school, clothing should be appropriate according to the age and physical development of the learner but still in a manner that contributes to maintaining an atmosphere of dignity and respect for everyone.  During the warm days of school in June and September, the following items of clothing should NOT be worn:

  • Running shorts, gym shorts, cut-offs or very brief shorts
  • Any shirt so short that decency cannot be maintained (crop tops)
  • Tank tops, halter tops, ‘spaghetti’ strap tops, or midriff style tops
  • Torn or mutilated clothing
  • Spandex; unless under other clothing
  • Shoes that are not safe for playground use (such as flip flops or open-toed sandals) Tennis shoes or some sort of closed toe shoes are required for safety.
  • Clothing with writing on the seat of pants or any inappropriate messages for school

It is important for everyone to understand that there is a definite correlation between the manner in which students dress and the way they behave.  Your help and good judgment is appreciated.  Please help us provide an environment conducive to learning even in hot weather.

Attached is a copy of the Welcome Back letter that went home in the mail.  You should have received it already or will soon!

August 26, 2015

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.

Teacher of the Year information- Nominate your favorite teacher today!

Time Is Running Out To Nominate Your Favorite Teacher!

The clock is ticking and time is running short to nominate your favorite Dearborn Public Schools teacher for the 2015 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Award. The deadline for submitting applications is Thursday, April 2, 2015.  Entry forms can be found by visiting www.dearbornschools.org or may be picked up at any Dearborn public school and the district’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette.

Hard-copy nomination forms can be dropped off or mailed to the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, MI  48124, or fax to (313) 584-9818. Adults may assist students when necessary but no more than two teachers can be nominated per student.

Students can nominate new or veteran teachers whom they feel have made outstanding contributions to the teaching profession. Pre-K through second grade students are asked to describe how their teacher makes learning fun. Students at this category can include a nice drawing if they wish but it will not be part of the selection process. Third through fifth-grade students will need to describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun.  Middle school students (grades 6-8) are asked to explain how their teacher connects classroom learning with everyday life. Students in high school must describe how their teacher is preparing them to be successful beyond high school.

Applications will be assessed on quality of the nomination, not on the number received. Award judges are members of the Dearborn Chamber Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names.

One winner from Pre-K through 2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, middle, and high school will be announced at a special ceremony, Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. The Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Award is sponsored by the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce.

Teachers selected to receive the Teacher of Year Award are being recognized as positive role models who consistently provide unique, productive, positive classroom experiences. Teachers selected receive a $1,000 cash prize, a plaque commemorating their achievement, and will be part of a select group of Dearborn teachers who have been recognized by the community for their dedication and passion for teaching.

“Professional, compassionate teachers can be found throughout our district. They are dedicated to their craft and to the academic success of the students in their classrooms. This award is a great way for our students to honor and thank their teachers,” commented Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Mr. Brian Whiston.

Please note that the guideline for having outdoor recess, lining up outside in the morning, and having safeties on outside posts has been changed.  If the wind chill is 20 degrees F or above students will wait outside in the morning, will be having outside recess, and corner safeties will be on post.  If the wind chill or air temperature is 19 degrees F or below students will line up inside in the morning, will have indoor recess and no corner safeties will be on post.  There are many students who are being dropped off as early as 7:45 am, which is way too early.  Please be aware that while students are welcome to play outside for a short time before school, there is no school staff supervision of these students.  Also, when it is too cold to line up outside the student lines in the hallway will be supervised  by teachers starting at 8:25 am.  Please do not drop off students early on these “inside” days unless they are going to breakfast.  Breakfast is served in the cafeteria starting at 8:15 am.  The cost is $1.25.  Parents who need to drop students off early can contact Kids’ Club to enroll their children.  This service is available for a fee but then you would know your child is being appropriately supervised.  We want all students to be safe!

Remember there is NO school from Wednesday, Nov. 26 to Sunday, Nov. 30 for Thanksgiving Recess.  Everyone here at Lindbergh wishes you a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends!

November 2014 Successful Parent Teacher conferences tips

5 tips for a better parent-teacher conference

By Carl Azuz, CNN

(CNN) – For many parents and teachers, it’s the first opportunity of the school year to sit down face to face and discuss everything from curriculum to issues that arise in the classroom.  Here are some tips from both sides of the desk on how to make the most of a parent-teacher conference.

Do your homework

Talking to your child before the conference to find out if he has any questions or concerns of his own can give you ideas of what to address with the teacher.  A good next step:  having a physical list of questions.

The National PTA says that the “questions you ask during the conference can help you express your hopes for the student’s success in class and for the teacher.”

It’s an idea echoed by Ryan Koczot, an award-winning middle school teacher in North Carolina.  “Parents should come to the conference prepared (note pad, pen, list of questions) – just like teachers should be prepared (information on the child, progress report, questions for the parent).”  This will help get everyone on the same page.
Join forces

Several teachers have told us that the best results follow when parents and teachers work together.  According to Debbie Geiger of Scholastic.com, “The goal of both the teacher and the parent should be the success of the student, but sometimes parents have a hard time discussing tough issues.”

Geiger suggests starting off by complimenting the teacher on something that he or she seems to be doing right – a piece of advice echoed by the National PTA.  This can set a positive tone for the meeting and help foster cooperation later on.

If there’s a problem that has developed between your child and a particular subject or teacher, look for ways to address it together.  “Be a team player,” suggests New Jersey middle school teacher Donna Spoto.  “Let the teacher know that you are on his/her side.”

Open lines of communication

Divorce, remarriage, foreclosure, moving, a new baby:  These are just a few of the personal issues that can affect a student’s behavior and work on campus.

A 7th grade social studies teacher in Tennessee said that one area where parents fall short is letting teachers know of problems in a student’s life outside of school.  “When parents don’t tell us what’s happening, we can’t adjust accordingly.”

Spoto agrees that “stress and emotional issues definitely affect a student’s work.”  By informing the teacher of possible causes, you will help the teacher better understand the child and be more equipped to appropriately instruct him.

Aim for action

Coming up with an action plan to address academic or behavioral concerns can benefit the parent, the teacher and the student long after the conference is over.  The National PTA recommends establishing a series of steps that both you and the teacher agree on.  A couple ideas to consider:  what your short- and long-term plans are, and how you’ll measure progress.

One of first actions you can take after the conference is going over key points and discussion topics with your child.  “Depending on his age and maturity level, he may need help understanding what problems – and solutions – were covered.  Most kids also want to have a clear idea of what’s expected of the teacher, the parent(s), and, most importantly, from [them],” writes Kristin Stanberry ofGreatschools.org.

Keep in touch

Once an action plan is in place, try to determine how you’ll follow up with the teacher in the weeks and months ahead.  Will it be through written notes, a phone call, or another conference?  Koczot says that an email or phone contact at school can help the parent “check in on their child weekly or in a couple of weeks to see how they are doing.”

And it’s not a bad idea to inform your child that you’re keeping in touch with her school.  “When a child knows parents and teachers are regularly working together, the child will see that education is a high priority requiring commitment and effort,” according to the National PTA.

Hold Harmless Renewal Will Keep Dearborn Public Schools Programs
In Place

The Dearborn Public Schools will ask voters to renew the Hold Harmless millage on the November ballot. The Hold Harmless Millage generates almost $40 million, or one fifth, of the District’s $180 million budget.

When Proposal A was passed in 1994 in an attempt to equalize school funding across the state and reduce property tax, it changed school funding. It created a guaranteed per-student funding amount for all students across the state. The problem with the new law was that some districts, including Dearborn, received less money per-student than what they were receiving before the passage of the law.

To correct this problem, the state allowed districts to ask voters to approve a Hold Harmless Millage that would make up the difference in funding from the old method to the new method. As required by law, voters must approve a renewal of the Hold Harmless Millage every 10 years.

In 2004, Dearborn voters approved the Hold Harmless Millage, allowing the district to offer new classes, innovative programs and services, and ensure quality classroom instruction. Since then, student success in the district has been recognized many times thanks to the hard work of teachers and the support of the voting community.

Among the recognition the district has recently received:
• All schools are accredited by AdvancED.

• Collegiate Academy received the 2013 Innovative Business of the Year Award.

• Michigan Association of School Administrators named Brian Whiston 2013-14 Superintendent of the Year.

• Dearborn Public Schools was named an Academic State Champion by Bridge Magazine and placed in the top 15 out of more than 500 districts across Michigan.

• Graduation rates at all three high schools exceed state averages and increased by 10 points over the last two years.

• Received Best Communities for Music Education designation from the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation.

• Awarded an Education Excellence Award by the Michigan Association of School Board for the District’s 8-step Plan for improving graduation rates.

• Most dual-enrolled students in Michigan (over 50% of our high school students have taken a dual enrollment class, earning college credit while still in high school and saving on tuition costs.

• New for 2014-15, 6th and 7th grade S.T.E.M. School and the Dearborn Center for Math, Science & Technology (DCMST) now starts in the 8th grade; and addition of the Dearborn Academic Center for Excellence (ACE 8th/9th grade alternative school).

The Hold Harmless RENEWAL will keep the positive momentum and success moving forward. This millage renewal is not a new millage nor is it an increase in what district residents are currently paying. Additional information can be found on a special Hold Harmless Renewal website http://holdharmless.dearbornschools.org/ or by calling the Communications Office at 827-3006.

There are 11 candidates running for 3 seats on the Board of Education.
If you were unable to attend the League of Women Voters candidate forum you can find the complete program on our district cable channel and it can be viewed at: www.youtube.com/user/dpscommdept
You can also attend a live candidate forum being hosted by the Oakman & Fordson Parent Teacher Association. The forum will take place Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 6:00pm in the Oakman Elementary gym. 7545 Chase Road, Dbn, 48126
