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.
Welcome Back! The 2017 - 2018 school year has gotten off to a terrific start. Teachers returned on Tuesday, September 5th for two days of Professional Development. Students returned on Thursday, September 7th. They met their teachers, re-acquainted with old friends, and met new friends. It was a pleasure to welcome the 1st graders to Lindbergh Elementary School. Their teachers introduced the curriculum, toured the school and helped them to navigate the cafeteria.
Lindbergh School has some faculty changes and we welcome: Mrs. Rettig 1st grade, Ms. Jacobs 4th grade, Mr. Colosimo 6th grade Science, Ms. Kim Speech, and Mrs. Koutros 1st grade aide. We also welcome faculty members from the ECC, Mrs. Paiotti - ESL and Mrs. H. Lee – Special Education.
An exciting and significant change in our curriculum impacts our 5th grade students. Beginning this year, our 5th grade students will travel from classroom to classroom throughout the day. They will travel to different Reading, Writing, Mathematics Science, and Social Studies teachers and instruction will be similar to our 6th grade schedule We are very excited about our 5th grade team: Mr. Engstrom – Social Studies, Mrs. Payerle – Science, Mrs. Cracco and Mrs. Messina – Reading and Writing, and Mrs. Tatta – Mathematics.
Back to School Night is scheduled for Thursday, September 28th. Parental involvement is a crucial component to student success. We hope to have a large turnout of parents.
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:
