Welcome Back! The 2018 - 2019 school year has gotten off to a terrific start. Teachers returned on Tuesday, September 4th for two days of Professional Development. Students returned on Thursday, September 6th. 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 welcomes the following new faculty members: Mrs. Angela Cincotta, Mr. Adam Lubatkin, Ms. Sarah Conger, Ms. Kaitlyn Denney, Ms. Danielle Bianconi, and Mrs. Melissa Vudragovic. We also welcome many new teacher aides.
An exciting and significant change in our school impacts report cards. Grade 4 will join grades 1 to 3 and receive Standards Based Report Cards. Students in grades 5 & 6 will continue to receive the traditional report card. All grades will move from four marking periods to three trimesters.
Back to School Night took place on Thursday, September 20th. Parental involvement continues to be a crucial component to student success. I am happy to report that 61.1 % of parents attended.
As we start the new school year, please help your child to get to school every day. Research shows that missing school often can result in lower levels of achievement. Remember that students need to be in school and on time for optimum learning to take place.
Communication between home and school continues to be an important connection. Lindbergh Elementary School is now on Twitter. Follow us @PalPkLindbergh for the latest events, reminders, and messages.
Lastly, we will continue to require home reading each night. Students will be asked to read for a certain amount of time each evening and complete a reading log. Reading is the foundation of success in school and in life. Children whose families read with them do better in school. So please make reading a priority and help you children to become better learners!
