Office Max "A Day Made Better" For Mrs. Braun and Her Students!
Ms. Desarae Braun was honored today by Office Max's "A Day Made Better" program. She was this year's winner of a surprise package of $1,000 worth of classroom resources and supplies which included a Kindle Fire. Mrs. Braun's 2012-2013 class showed significant academic growth as measured by their MAP scores.
Mrs. Braun was one of a 1000 other teachers to receive this award in which OfficeMax associates surprise teachers. The national initiative aims to relieve and support teachers who spend their own money on much-needed classroom supplies. OfficeMax consumers and business clients contributed nearly $700,000 in additional school supplies through this summer's in-store supply drive held at OfficeMax stores across the country.
Way to go Mrs. Braun! Keep up the great job in raising the bar and challenging our students to excel!
Lindop "Patriot Day" Celebration
The 2013 Lindop "Patriot Day" celebration was a huge success. As we commemorated and paid homage to those who lost their lives in the tragedy of 9-11, we were joined by Broadview's own "first responders", including Broadview's Fire and Police Chief who also brought members of Broadview police and fire department. We also had the privilege of having Lindop students Quincy Sowell, Darius Murphy, Joshua Johnson, and Roshaun Wilson be accompanied by Proviso West High School JROTC as the cadets showed our students how to present colors at an official event. The Lindop students did themselves and Lindop School District #92 proud as they marched alongside the cadets to present and salute the flag to the Lindop crowd of classmates, peers, and guests. To add to the occasion, Lindop students presented Broadview's Chief of Police and Fire Chief with letters of appreciation for keeping us safe on a daily basis from our students for them to share with their colleagues. Thanks to all the staff members who helped to make this event a big success.
