A Message From The Principal

Welcome back to the 2020 - 2021 school year! Although we continue to live in unprecedented and uncertain times, the education of our students continues to be our highest priority, even during this remote instruction phase.

Lindbergh School welcomes the following new faculty members: Mrs. Janelle Gratale – Bilingual grade 2 and Ms. Shai Bugo – ESL. Mrs. Stephanie Messina returned from a maternity leave and is teaching grade 4.

There is an exciting and significant change at Lindbergh. The District has switched from Power School to Genesis as our new Student Information System. You should have received information to log on to the Parent Portal. You will be able to access important information about your child/children.

Back to School Night will take place on Thursday, September 24. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic it will be virtual. Teachers will send you a Google Meet link to participate. Parental involvement continues to be a crucial component to student success and I hope many of you will be able to join.

As we start the new school year remotely, please help your child to log on every morning at 8:30 a.m. Research shows that missing school often can result in lower levels of achievement. Remember that students need to be logged in and on time for optimum learning to take place.

Communication between home and school continues to be an important connection. Lindberg School is on Twitter. Follow us @PalPkLindbergh for the latest events, reminders, and messages. We also communicate through parent emails, Google Classroom, Class Dojo, and the school website at We will share all communication in a digital form!

When the decision is made to return to the hybrid learning in person phase, parents will receive the necessary information outlined in our re-opening plan. This plan was developed with guidance from the CDC, NJ Department of Education, and input from representatives of all stakeholders in the school community.

Lastly, we will continue to do our best to support students and their families during the remote learning phase. Please do not hesitate to contact us to assist you in anyway.

Hero Helpers

“I can help. I’m making a difference.”- Isaiah Shin

When schools closed in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Isaiah Shin and Evelyn Shin, grade 5 and 4, watched as COVID-19 patients filled hospitals and courageous healthcare workers rushed to their sides. They saw on TV that people were making ear guards from 3D printers for first responders whose ears would become chafed from long hours of wearing masks. They did not have access to a 3D printer, but they knew they wanted to help. So Isaiah and Evelyn got creative and used what they had. Within 20 minutes, they came up with their own version of ear guards made with small colorful rubber bands, normally used to make weaved bracelets, and “Hero Helpers” was born. 

What started with a few gifts to friends and church members grew to donations of over 1,500 Hero Helpers to 6 hospitals across the nation. Isaiah and Evelyn are still making Hero Helpers and most importantly, they know they are making a difference.
