Leader in Me- In Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind, we determine our personal priorities. In
Habit 3: Put First Things First, we learn to put our priorities first. “Quadrant 2
Living” is a key concept of Habit 3. The Time Matrix® tool helps us understand how
we use our time. Once we are aware of how we spend our time, we can manage it
and achieve what matters most to us. Ask
your child, “Which activity is your biggest time-waster?”

Greetings,

I wanted to clarify some key questions as we kickoff this years Kids Heart Challenge.  Students can collect donations one of two ways; registering online with the app or with the purple envelope that went home yesterday with the students.
Because of the overwhelming response, I ask that students only turn in their envelope when they are finished collecting donations on their PE days.  This way, I can assure that each student has received the necessary prizes they have earned and thank them for their assistance in helping out with this amazing program. If a student has loose money, I ask that they keep it in their Kids Heart Challenge envelope until they are finished collecting and ready to turn it all in.  The deadline for the donations is Friday, February 15th.  If you need extra envelopes, let me know!
Additionally, I encourage all students to register online for their free glow in the dark wristband and your chance at a $25 gift card and a free PE day! I am tracking the progress of the registered students in the gym so you don’t have one more item on your plate.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.  As always, thank you for your patience and support,
Mr. Harvey

We are so excited to be heading back to the
Lincoln Park Skating Center on
Thursday, January 31st from 6-8 PM.

The price is just $7.00 for your admission and skate rental!
Make sure to grab the whole family and come enjoy a fun night with your Lindbergh friends!

Dear Lindbergh Flyers Family,

I am very excited to kickoff our Kids Heart Challenge (formerly Jump Rope for Heart).  Information about the event will be passed out to students this week regarding ways to support the American Heart Association (non-profit) with a wonderful fundraiser opportunity to give back and provide assistance for lifesaving research.  Additionally, a one page flyer will also be distributed in Arabic for our families regarding the event. You can lead the way by registering and taking the challenge! Here is the link our schools web page to register and more information. Thank you for your continued support!

Thank you all for all of the delicious food, gifts for me and the students and the fun celophane ball game.  You are all so generous and kind and I am lucky to have all of you/your children in my class.  I hope you all have a happy holiday!

Thank you also for the Birthday Surprise!!!!  It means so much to have wonderful families.

Remember school starts back up Jan. 7th.  So until then have a wonderful safe vacation!

When your child gets bored remember zearn.com and read!!!!

 

I purchased light necklaces from the dollar store and 19 of the 24 light.  I went back and they do not have any.  If your child has one at home could you please have them wear it so all students may have a set.  I will pick them up something special after the break.

Thank you in advance for your help and understanding.
