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 NJSLA formally 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, Read Across America, and class trips were just a few. Lastly, students participated in the Student Council Walk-A-Thon, Talent Show, Vocabulary Parade, 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.
Our 6th grade students will graduate on Thursday, June 20st. I know that they have many fond memories of their time spent at Lindbergh Elementary School. The entire school community wishes them the best of luck as they embark upon the next step on their educational journey.
Summer is a great time to relax and unwind, but student learning should not come to a complete stop. Please have your child complete the summer reading and writing project. Don’t forget about math. Summer is a great time to reinforce math facts. Our goal is to have your child continue to make progress!
Have a safe and happy summer.
Toni Bongard, Principal
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 grades 2 through 6 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 13, 2019 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.
