            Lindbergh Elementary School is a large suburban school serving a population of 800 students and 115 staff members.  Students are represented in grades 1 to 6.  The school serves as a model of integration of ethnic and culturally diverse students, as well as creating an environment of acceptance where inclusion is a priority for all.  The needs of the students, which include intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs remain foremost in the minds of the staff.  Believing that all students can succeed, administration and faculty promote high standards and expectations as well as engaging active and creative minds equipped for the 21st Century. Students and faculty are engaged in a curriculum that includes technology, differentiation of instruction, and core curriculum content standards.

            Many programs exist for meeting the needs of our students.  We have a full Child Study Team to meet the needs of our special education students.   Students needing academic assistance and extra help benefit from the Title I Program.  ESL classes are scheduled for those students speaking a home language other than English.  The academically gifted and talented program, LEAP, services students who demonstrate a need for enrichment beyond the regular curriculum.  Artistically talented children can also participate in our G&T Art Program.  Our Science/Computer Lab enhances our students’ ability to benefit from hands-on interactive lessons.  Lastly, our students benefit from a wide-array of after school classes through our 21st Century Program, Homework Club, and Cultural Arts Program.

            Besides involvement in curriculum and academic programming, students are introduced to many extra-curricular programs.  Some examples include Student Council, Safety Patrol, Instrumental Band, and Chorus.  Other activities include field trips, Book Fair, Field Day, Turkey Trot, and a variety of assemblies. 

            To capture the flavor of Lindbergh Elementary School a number of words and phrases can be utilized.  Caring learning environment, student advocacy, personalized education and parental support are just a few.  Lindbergh always remains true to its’ mission of providing students with optimum learning experiences to assist them in reaching their fullest potential and enabling them to take their place in today’s society.

Lindbergh School Reading Summer Resources

 

Summer Reading Project:

Studies have shown that having students read 4 or 5 books over the summer months can prevent reading achievement loss.  Each student entering Lindbergh School in September will be required to complete a “Summer Reading Project” appropriate for his/her grade level and a reading log. Students entering Grade 1 will be required to complete a reading log

Both should be completed and handed in by September 14, 2017 to his/her teacher.  There is also an optional writing project that your child may complete if they visit a special place over the summer.   

Here are some online resources and incentives to help your child with his/her reading progress over the summer:

Lindbergh Elementary Principal's Message

Lindbergh Elementary School

A Message from the Principal

The end of the school year is quickly approaching.  It is hard to believe that summer is on the way. I continue to be proud of the progress that our students have made throughout the year.

During the month of May, students and staff once again successfully participated in the PARCC test.  The tests went smoothly with a minimum of problems.  The entire school community anxiously awaits the results.  I will continue to keep you informed.

Students participated in many exciting events this school year.  Assemblies, concerts, field day, book fair, and class trips were just a few.  Read Across America and the author visit were two fun events enjoyed by all.  Lastly, students participated in the Student Council Walk-A-Thon and the Torch Run sponsored by the Palisades Park Police.

Teachers continued to engage in professional development opportunities to stay on top of the latest instructional strategies to enhance student learning. Teachers attended both outside and in-house workshops throughout the year.  They learned at grade level, department level, on-line, and through the Professional Learning Community.  Some of our teachers will also attend professional development in the summer.

Lindbergh Student of the Month

Stasa Stanojevic

rsz 1rsz maystudent

After much consideration, it is our honor to announce the Student of the Month for May. Please join me in congratulating Fifth Grader, Stasa Stanojevic! 

Stasa’s Fifth Grade teacher, Mrs. Kurz, nominated her for this award because “She is a hardworking, conscientious student who has received straight A’s all year. She loves to read and reading is one of her strongest subjects. Stasa is in the LEAP program and a member of both the Student Council and Chorus. One of Stasa’s best attributes is her compassion. She never hesitates to help other students, without even having to be asked. Students often look to her for help because she is a successful student and treats everyone with respect. She frequently surprises her teacher by doing tasks without being asked as well.” These are all such important qualities that make Stasa so deserving of the honor of Student of the Month.

Stasa credits her parents for being the ultimate role models, inspiring her to be her best and instilling the importance of kindness and learning from mistakes. She has been a student at Lindbergh since Second grade. When asked about her favorite thing about this school, Stasa replied, “how kind everyone is!” When she’s not in school, Stasa is involved in contemporary dance, jazz, ballet and acro. One of her goals is to be a professional dancer. Stasa also loves to travel and has been very fortunate to visit several countries that have given her the opportunity to be exposed to many different cultures and languages. She has a favorite place to visit and that is Serbia.  

Stasa, we know that if you continue to work hard, you will accomplish anything you put your mind to- the world is your stage!

Congratulations on this deserving honor. We, here at Lindbergh School, are SO proud of you!

And if you happen to see Stasa in the hallway, make sure you say “Hi!” and congratulate her on the accomplishment of being Lindbergh’s Student of the Month for May.

Clive’s Fourth Grade teacher, Mrs. Cracco, nominated him for this award because “He accepts new challenges and is committed to doing his best. Clive sets an example of excellence in the classroom. He also displays good citizenship by assisting other students. His leadership skills carry out especially with group activities. In addition, Clive has vast background knowledge of literature. I appreciate all of his words of wisdom and input. He excels in communicating his ideas in class. Research says, that good readers are great writers. Clive is an avid, adult-like reader and loves all kinds of genres. His writing is compelling to read and his extensive vocabulary is evident in all of his work.” These are all such important qualities that make Clive so deserving of the honor of Student of the Month.

 When asked about his favorite thing in Fourth Grade, Clive replied, “getting to learn Geometry and LEAP with Mrs. Doheny!” When he’s not in school, Clive loves Judo. One of his goals is to achieve black belt status. When he gets older he would love to follow in his dad’s footsteps and be a Real Estate Manager, eventually working on projects to build skyscrapers. His geometry skills will certainly come in handy for that.

Clive, we know that if you continue to work hard, you will accomplish anything you put your mind to- the sky is the limit!

Congratulations on this deserving honor. We, here at Lindbergh School, are SO proud of you!

And if you happen to see Clive in the hallway, make sure you say “Hi!” and congratulate him on the accomplishment of being Lindbergh’s Student of the Month for March.
