Our Student Council members ran a Fall Food Drive Contest throughout the past month. Donations totaling over 700 pounds were collected. The fifth grade Student Council members were given the opportunity to help deliver the donations to the food bank in person. These students learned valuable lessons on the importance of being good citizens and helping others in our community.
Lindeneau School will be focusing on citizenship. At an assembly held on Friday, students learned about citizenship and how Stripes the school mascot earned his Captain Citizenship cape. Ask your child what it means to be a good citizen. They will have a chance to earn purple tickets from their peers when they are caught being a good citizen. School-wide activities are planned to help others in our community at a local hospital and donations from Movie Night will benefit C.A.R.E. Tiger tickets were drawn and students got to spin the wheel for prizes. Other students cashed in their saved tiger tickets for prizes. Five special tickets were drawn for students who earned golden tickets for showing respect.
Lindeneau's Spanish teacher, and co-technology coordinator, has been invited by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to attend a celebration of effective teachers in New Orleans this fall. Mrs. Lorenzo was nominated by her peers in recognition of her excellence and leadership in teaching. She will participate in workshops. Congratulations to the ambitious and determined Mrs. Lorenzo.
