Wednesday, June 6, 2018 School visitors, teachers, administrators from Dearborn and our neighbors from Wyandotte Public Schools came to Lindbergh to observe and learn how Lindbergh students show their leadership skills with Leader in Me and The 8 Habits program we have been developing for 3 years. Our school was decorated in an Emoji Theme, yellow and black colors, with students from K through 5th grade, being parking greeters, front door greeters, registration for our visitors, guided tours, and discuss school activities at our poster boards in the cafeteria. Visitors also attended a First Lesson class being taught by a teacher and later walked to the assembly, run by our Student Lighthouse team. During the assembly, our guests were shown student talents in music, art, and agility skills with jump roping. Visitors had nothing but praise for our students, our school, and our Leader in Me program. Along with our Student Leaders, the hard work of our Lindbergh teachers and PTA parents and volunteers, made it another successful Leadership Day, Synergizing together. As some of our visitors from Wyandotte were heading to their cars, they stopped by the Gaga ball pit to observe 5th graders playing during PE class. They were intrigued and decided to participate with our students. They had a blast playing! Now they want their own gaga ball pit. Have a fun, safe, and active summer everyone.
May 4, 2018 Today’s First Lesson was about Habit No. 7, Sharpen The Saw. The classrooms discussed what things students could do to make their body, brain, heart, and soul feel good. Topics talked about were exercising for health, reading and learning for their minds, being kind to others for their heart, and spending time with family and friends for their soul. Since it was a beautiful warm day outside, the whole school went for a half mile walk on the track for exercise with classmates, teachers, and friends. During the Student Spotlight, 3rd graders Alora B. and Zeinab H. sang the “Perfect” song. Students Kayla S. and Elijah L. showed us their talents for drawing. Next up were the talents of two jump rope teams. Finalists The Dancing Llamas showed us their tricks on stage by synergizing together. 5th grade students were Ben S., Dominic M., Silas B., Mitchell M., Jaden B. . The second jump rope team were the Champions The Royal Jump Squad. With their awesome team jerseys, they astonished the crowd with their acrobatic jumps and teamwork. 4th grade students were Fatima E., Jamil E., Adam H., Jesse W., Faisal N. .

April 20, 2108 Students at Lindbergh enjoyed today listening to Bryant Middle School’s Jazz Band in the auditorium. This was the reward activity for the month of March. Students were able to hear them play for about 30 minutes. The middle-school band included many former Lindbergh students, that also performed some solo music for us. It was awesome!

April 14, 2018 Lindbergh students and parents Sharpened The Saw by braving the cold, rain, mud, and wind to run the Kids’ Martian 1.2 mile Race at Dearborn’s Ford Field Park this past Saturday. Some of our student leaders also ran the 5K race earlier. We were missing a few students due to the inclement weather, but we had 120 registered students for the race. Everyone seemed to have fun loosing a shoe in the mud, slipping and falling on the grass, or feeling the chilly water constantly spraying their faces. You can see more pictures in the Photos section of the blog. Great job Lindbergh Flyers/Martians!
April 9, 2018 First Class this morning was about how to Synergize and use our Emotional Bank Accounts to help others and ourselves. During class, students used Science to see how Synergizing together by holding hands can light up an energy stick. But when someone breaks the chain, the energy stick no longer works. Also during the lesson, students discussed example in their lives about depositing and withdrawing from their Emotional Bank Accounts, and how it made them feel and how it effected others during their relationships with siblings, friends, parents, and teachers. During the assembly, three students demonstrated their special talents during Student Spotlight. Fifth grader Ryan B. showed his talents by playing the piano, second grader Ayesha T. showed her wonderful artwork of caricatures, and fifth grader Madex R. demonstrated his Michael Jackson dancing skills to the song Billy Jean.
