Good afternoon Lindbergh families,
It is with a heavy heart that I am reaching out to you.  As you may have heard, on November 23rd, one of our own, Lexy Lamp – a six year old student at DuVall Elementary – lost her battle with cancer (DIPG).  While Lexy has succumbed to her condition, the battle is not over for her family – the reality of endless medical bills and a less than ideal living arrangement is now setting in.
At times like these, just knowing that you have the love and support of a community behind you can mean so much.  In honor of Lexy, the Lindbergh PTA is organizing an effort to raise money for a donation of gift cards to help with their everyday expenses.  If you would like to contribute funds to help purchase the gift cards, please send in your cash or checks (made out to Lindbergh PTA) by Wednesday, December 9th.
If you’d like to help support the Lamp family on your own, you can do that as well.  Donations can be made directly to their gofundme account or via Duvall Elementary in care of the Lamp Family.

Thank you!

Our deepest condolences goes out to the Lamp family. Many of us have followed this closely.

Barnes and Noble/Five Below/Panda Express Fundraisers

Hello Lindbergh Families. This Saturday we are doing a fundraiser at Barnes & Noble in Allen Park. Please attend and show your support for our school and as a bonus you can hear our adorable choir. We always have a great turnout and I don’t expect any different this year. This event lasts all day and we will be doing an “ugly Christmas sweater” craft in the morning and also raffling off some Barnes & Noble gift cards if you make a craft (kids only). The raffle will be held after the choir performs smile emoticon We will be there first thing in the morning and remember to tell the cashier you are with the Lindbergh School so we receive the credit.

AND as a bonus, it is also an educators/teacher day so all those wonderful teachers/administrators will receive a discount!

Don’t forget to stop by FIVE BELLOW AND PANDA EXPRESS. Lindbergh will get a portion of all sales when you show the flier below!

5th Grade Instrumental Concert is Tuesday, December 8th at 6:30pm in the Lindbergh Auditorium.

Calling all Lindbergh Families….

Lindbergh is holding a food drive for Gleaners Food Bank December 1-12.  There are boxes in front of the auditorium.  Please bring in non-perishable food items of canned or boxed food to help feed the hungry.

Order your gift cards and stocking stuffers with us!   A percentage of your payment (varies by card) goes right back to the PTA! There are 2 different ways to order gift cards:  1) Create an on-line family account. More cards are available on-line than are able to be printed on the order form. Please follow the instructions below to create your family account.

Go to www.shopwithscrip.com

  1. a) Click on Register if you do not have an account
  2. b) Use Lindbergh PTA’s Enrollment Code: 7C42D7D237444
  3. c) After you register you are ready to order
  4. d) If you already have a family account from last year, just log in, you don’t need to re-register.

To pay we participate in Presto Pay, which will be processed through Scrip, or you can send in your check (made out to Lindbergh PTA) to your student’s teacher to turn in to the PTA.

2)  Fill out the form sent home and return it to your teacher with your check made out to Lindbergh PTA.  Please make sure to include your email or phone number on the order form, so that I can contact you if necessary.

  An adult will need to sign for the cards before they are released. I will post on the Lindbergh PTA Facebook page when the cards come in. I am treating these cards like cash, so I’d like to verify that they are getting into the correct hands. I will be available after school, the holiday parties on December 18th, or we can arrange to meet.  

Please contact Amy Fradkin at amy@fradkin.net or 313-598-3553 with any questions.

Attention Boutique Volunteers:
