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.
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 be treated to a special breakfast on January 11th.
Our students have been engaged in many exciting learning experiences, especially in Science. New Jersey has adapted new science standards that increased rigor and expectations. Students are having fun with hands-on experiments. Our school has received a $500.00 Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance Grant that will be used to help purchase supplies for our experiments. We would like to thank Exxon Mobil and Mr. Nasr from our local Exxon station for continuing to consider our school worthy of this grant.
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, Polar Express, 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.
