A Message from the Principal
It is hard to believe that the1st trimester of the school year is over. I am proud of the progress that our students have made so far this year. Congratulations to the 5th & 6th grade students who made honors. Students who made Principal’s List will enjoy a breakfast on January 10.
Our students have been engaged in many exciting learning experiences this year, especially our First School-wide Spelling Bee. Each homeroom in grades four to six conducted a spelling bee and the homeroom winners participated in another spelling bee held on December 2nd, in the auditorium. The winners were Jayden Kim from 4th grade and Leah Nguyen from 5th grade. Jayden and Leah will compete for the school-wide championship on January 7th. The overall school winner will represent Lindbergh School in the North Jersey Spelling Bee on March 10, 2020 at Bergen Community College.
Our teachers have also been engaged in numerous professional development activities to help your children achieve the expected goals while raising engagement. Teachers continue to learn in our Professional Learning Community, afterschool meetings, and outside workshops.
Students participated in many enjoyable and educational events such as: Week of Respect, Red Ribbon Week, fire safety instruction, costume parade, Turkey Trot, 50th day of school, and the PTA Holiday Boutique. Some of our 1st and 2nd grade students sang at the town Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Winter Concert was a great success enjoyed by all!
Lastly, regular attendance and punctuality are the basis to a sound educational experience. Students who are absent or late miss out on valuable instructional time. We wish to instill a sense of accountability and dependability in our children. We need your support to do so.
Warm regards for a happy and healthy New Year.
Toni Bongard, Principal
