            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.

21st Century Registration is Now Open

The 21st Century After School Program will be opening registration for the 2018-2019 school year this week.  The program is free and open to all students in 4th through 6th grade.  We offer Homework Help, Enrichment, Academic, and Recreation class each day from 3:00 to 6:00pm.

A Message from the Principal

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!

Toni Bongard, Principal
