Principals Newsletter

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is amazing that January has already come and gone. As always at Lindeneau many exciting events and
learning have been taking place.

Our students in grades 1-5 have completed another STAR assessment and it was great to see the progress
that the students made. The results of these assessments will be discussed at Parent/Teacher conferences.

Parent/Teacher conference forms have been sent home. The dates of conferences are February 12th and 19th from 5:30-7:30 and February 14th from 1:45- 3:45. If you have not received these forms, please call the office and we will send another one home.

Our students continue to earn Tiger Stripes and Tiger Tickets. In addition to our weekly winners, our monthly
winners were:

Martin Chen
Madison Frost

1st Grade
Sa’Miyaa Dixon
Gabriella Bochenko-Nanna

2nd Grade
Lucas Tindall
Mackenzie Caffrey

3rd Grade
Jillian Lord
Pranav Chundi

4th Grade
Angelina O’Connor
Andy Lowe

5th Grade
Luis Zuniga
Haya Siddiqui

On Wednesday, February 9th, I will be drawing 26 names from the “tiger cage” that all tiger tickets since September have been kept. Those 26 students will be treated to a pizza lunch with me. The PBSIS initiative has created such a positive climate in the school that we as a staff couldn’t be happier for our students.

The first annual PTO Pasta and Talent Show night was a great success. The students who performed were truly amazing and the food was the best. Thank you to the PTO, but especially to Mrs. Westdyke for chairing the event.

Lindeneau School has become the recipient of a $5000.00 grant from Lowe’s Toolbox for Schools. The goal of the grant was to provide the students with a reading courtyard to be used at recess for students who want to do what they love to do…read! Thanks to Mr. Stryker for helping to complete the grant.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you at conferences. Have a very Happy Valentine’s Day.

Warm regards,

Rosemary Schutz
