~~Batteries for Puerto Rico~~

We are hosting a Battery Drive for disaster-struck Puerto Rico from October 4th-20th.

Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico.  Families are having to rebuild, including a Lindbergh family.  Please consider donating any batteries you can!

The classroom that brings in the most batteries will be rewarded with a pizza party!


Our first dine-out for the year will be on
Wednesday, October 18th, from 4-8 PM at
Panera in the Heights Shopping Center,
26580 Ford Rd. (Dearborn Heights).

A percentage of your purchase on that date will go directly to the Lindbergh PTA.

Look for flyers coming home this week!  They are also available on our Facebook page (Lindbergh PTA Dearborn)

It’s Box Tops collection time again!

Lindbergh Elementary is once again collecting Box Tops to earn money for our school!

Simply glue the coupons on the attached sheet that comes home with your child, or place in baggies in groups of 50, and return them to school by
Friday, 10/20

The classroom that collects the most Box Tops will win a special surprise!

Thanks for all of your support!

Haunted School is Friday, October 27th, 6:30-8:30 PM!

This is a fun-filled night of games, stories, treats, and thrills.  Over the years it has become a wonderful tradition in our community.  Proceeds from this event go directly to support our PTA.

We need many volunteers to create this haunted extravaganza!  As with any event of this size, the old adage “the more, the merrier” becomes an understatement.  We are always looking for some new and creative room-leaders and helpers.

We are also looking for the following donations:
–Candy–LOTS of it!  This is a big one; we can’t have too much!
–Decorations and large blow-up displays
–Storage totes
–Spider webbing (white and glow)
–Carving kits
There is a bin outside the school office to drop off items.

If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact event chairs Gwynn Bondy ( or Kelly Panackia (

Tickets were sent home a few weeks ago for the Lindbergh PTA Raffle Fundraiser!

Our goal is to require your support and participation for only ONE PTA-sponsored fundraiser this year.  We are asking each family to sell at least 50 tickets at $2 each.  We will award three cash prizes:  (1) $500 prize and (2) $250 prizes.  Prize amounts may vary if we are unable to reach the fundraising goal.  What will the money be used for?  All Lindbergh fundraising goes right back to our school, teachers, and students–it pays for activities like Haunted School, Bingo for Books, Holiday Boutique, and Fun Fair.

Important dates:
–November 2nd:  All sold ticket stubs and money collected along with any unsold tickets are due back to Lindbergh no later than this date.  It is a legal requirement of the State of Michigan Lottery Association that we collect all tickets for this fundraiser, regardless of whether they’ve been sold.

–November 11th:  Raffle drawing held at the Holiday Boutique at 4 PM; winner does not need to be present to win

We can only accept cash or checks maybe payable to “Lindbergh PTA.”

If you choose not to sell tickets, you may choose to purchase them for $100.  If you are able to sell more than 50 tickets, please contact Vanessa Mkrtumian for more (

Thank you for your support!

Hello, Lindbergh families, teachers and friends!

It is time for our Annual Road Rally on Saturday, Nov. 4th!  The theme this year is “The Amazing Race: Sports Edition!”  Teams need to come dressed as their favorite team or create your own team with mascot (points will be given for creativity!)
Be ready for some fun games, puzzles, and, of course, a great time with friends!  Teams can consist of 4 to 6 people, all riding together in one vehicle.  The cost is $10 per person.  Teams will need to meet at 6:00 p.m. in the Lindbergh parking lot.

Please e-mail Melissa at with your “team name” and members as soon as you can to let us know if you are planning on participating.  Cash for the rally needs to be placed in a labeled envelope and put in Melissa Mattison’s mailbox (wall into house) at 634 N Waverly (3 doors down from Lindbergh on Lodge Lane side).  Please have team names, members, and cost provided no later than Friday, Oct. 20^th.  Additional details to come…!!

Popcorn Friday!

We need many volunteers throughout the year to make this much-loved event successful for our students!
