October 17, 2019 Raz-Kids Last year our second grade students worked on an online reading program called Raz-Kids. Raz-Kids is a website that has leveled books for all types of readers. There are fiction and nonfiction books with a comprehension quiz at the end of each book. The students benefited from using this program at home, and the books can be used as reading for the reading logs. We will be placing your child at his/her reading level. The district second grade reading goal for the end of the year is Level 28(M). Raz-Kids can be used on a home computer, tablet or I-Pad. In addition to using the program at home, we plan on using this program at school. We are asking that each child contribute $5.00 for the use of this program. This is a one year subscription! Therefore, your child will have access to reading throughout the school year including breaks and summer vacation. Please send the $5 in an envelope with your child’s name and Raz-Kids written on it by Wednesday, October 23rd. Thank you! Mrs. Robins and Miss. Polidori 

Post Cards for Policy


Did you know Michigan ranks DEAD LAST in education funding growth since 1995, according to a recent Michigan State University Study????

Around the district, Many Elementary Schools are participating in sending postcards to legislators to remind them that we NEED funds to educate our children! 

So, what can we do to advocate for more school funding where it will make a difference? 

We are starting a postcard campaign to Representative Shane Hernandez. Rep. Hernandez represents Sanilac County, but he is the chair of House Appropriations Committee and House Fiscal Governing Committee. HE decides when the budget comes up for a vote. We need to reach out and let him know how much this funding is needed!

The PTA has purchased blank post cards for students to make their own card. We will set up a table outside of the auditorium with blank post cards and a bin to put finished post cards in. These will be mailed on a weekly basis, or you may mail yours on your own. 

We ask that the student draws a picture, school mascot, self-portrait, along with Lindbergh Elementary on the front. Help them write a simple sentence like, “Hi my name is _________ and I am in ________ grade. Please Pass the 2020 School Aid Budget. 

If the Governor’s budget is not passed, Dearborn could lose $6 MILLION MORE! 

I have attached a sample from DuVall Elementary for you to reference. For those of you that don’t know, this budget GREATLY affects Lindbergh. We lost our enrichment program and our Choir program this year among others. If the budget does not pass, we could lose more of the programs we love or even teachers which would be devastating since our class sizes keep growing. 

Any questions? Contact Erin McNally at erin.mcnally19@gmail.com

This week we will begin by focusing on Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind. Great leaders are always reflecting upon their work and setting W.I.G.S. (wildly important goals) for themselves but in their academic lives and personal lives. In order to create a plan for ourselves, we will be starting our W.I.G. tracker and scoreboard. Make sure to touch base with your child to see what W.I.G. goal did they set for themselves and what lead measures (steps) they are taking to reach their goal.

Note from Homeroom Parents


This note was passed out today!

Dear Families and Friends of Miss Polidori’s Class,

      The Annual Lindbergh Holiday Boutique is fast approaching! It is held here at school on Saturday, November 9th from 9:30-4pm. One of the biggest attractions is the classroom basket raffle.  Each classroom is assigned a theme, and creates a basket that gets raffled off at the Boutique.  100% of the money collected for the baskets gets divided evenly among our teachers to partly reimburse them for all the things that they buy with their own money, such as rewards, supplies for projects/experiments, classroom library books, etc.  Last year we were able to give each classroom $500.  Our theme for our basket is “Weekend Vibes”. This entails anything families/ adults enjoy doing on the weekend; such as, dinner, movies, arcade/ family entertainment, concerts/ shows, arts & crafts, sports/ fitness, spa/health related etc. As room parents responsible for our basket, we need your help!  Feel free to donate any items that might be perfect for our theme.  Anything from gift cards, memberships, new/unused items that match the theme or if you know of any businesses that would like to donate we would appreciate that as well. 

      Did you know that your contribution to our basket is tax-deductible?  Donation receipts are available for anyone who would like to donate. Also, a banner thanking business owners that donate to our baskets will be on display at the Boutique, if they’d like a little free advertising.   Lindbergh PTA is a non-profit organization and we have a tax form available if needed for any donations.  Please have any donations/sponsors in by November 1st, so that we have time to plan the basket. 

Thank You Again for Your Support, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

–Haunted School!  Friday, October 18th, 6:30 PM

We are having  our annual WATCH D.O.G.S. Pizza Night! When:    Tuesday, Oct. 8th from 6:00-7:30 p.m.Where:   Lindbergh cafeteria and auditorium!   Please bring your child and enjoy some dinner and refreshments while learning about our wonderful program! What is WATCH D.O.G.S.?WATCH D.O.G.S. ® (Dads Of Great Students) is a family and community engagement educational initiative. There are 2 primary goals of the WATCH D.O.G.S. ® program. 1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. 2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying. Program Benefits• Students gain positive male role models.• Schools gain an extra set of eyes and ears. The presence of a father or father figure will provide an additional deterrent to bullying, enhance a sense of security in the building, and will help to create an environment conducive to learning.• Fathers get a glimpse of their students’ everyday world and learn about the increasingly complex challenges and decisions today’s youth are facing. As a result, they can learn to relate better to their student and hopefully connect with them.• Fathers gain a greater awareness of the positive impact they can have on their student’s life in three critical areas including: academic performance, self-esteem, social behavior. We hope you can make it to our Pizza Night!  See you there! Eric Mattison

Week of Oct.8


Posted on September 23, 2019

Things we will be working on this week..

A copy of thee list can be found behind their calendar in their orange take home folder.

Math – We are beginning Module 3, our goal is Lessons 2-6.

During the next few days, our math class will work with place value units of ones, tens, and hundreds. We will learn how to form a unit, or bundle, of ten, of a hundred, and of a thousand. As students count to 1,000, they will learn to skip-count efficiently by reaching a benchmark number—a ten or a hundred.

Module 2 test was returned today!

Science– We will be working out of the science book to work on our Non-fiction reading as well as finding out what matter is.

Daily 5 – We will be reintroducing Read to Self, Work on Writing, Listen to Reading, Read to someone, and Word Work. We will be building Stamina to read and write at longer.

Reading – I will be attempting to set up reading groups now that NWEA and DRA’s are completed.

Writing – We will be turning in personal narrative, the topic is 1st what first they chose was up to them.

Social Studies – Lesson 3 This lesson connects to Lesson 1 and the discussion of how people meet the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, and a sense of belonging with their family and community. Students identify other needs that people have such as water, fun, love, etc. Students begin to understand that people live in communities because communities help them meet these needs.  The teacher then guides students in identifying another human need: the need to feel safe.

Leader In Me – Our class will be talking about choosing our own weather. Ask your child, “What does it mean to ‘choose your weather’?”

Leader In Me is usually taught on Wednesdays.

Upcoming Dates –

Friday Oct. 11th is a half-day

Friday Oct. 18th is Haunted School
