WozU STEAM Event May 2, 2019

With Retired NBA Player Steven Hunter

The Lindop community is extremely grateful to Steven Hunter and the Hunter foundation for providing this opportunity for our students. As we continue our efforts to equip students for high school, college, careers and beyond, it is paramount that the necessary tools are provided now. I am amazed at the excitement of our parents, students, and staff as we prepare for summer Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math better known as (STEAM). Lindop students will have the opportunity to explore coding, engineering design process, drones, cyber-security, and mobile development. We are excited about our continued collaborative efforts, but this is only the beginning. We look forward to many years of a mutually beneficial relationship. Mr. Hunter, has been adopted by Lindop, and there is nothing that he can do about it. Dr. Janiece Jackson, Superintendent.

Student Council Volunteers at Feed My Starving Children

Inserted Image

On 12/4/17 middle school students in Student Council attended a field trip to Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). When prompted to brainstorm volunteer opportunities, FMSC was their #1 choice. The purpose of this trip was to give students the opportunity to help package nutritious food for malnourished children across the world. FMSC partners with over 70 countries around the world to provide food for children in need so they can lead successful, healthy lives.

Inserted Image

Student Council spent 2 hours packaging meals with soy, rice, vegetables and vitamins. They boxed the meals so they were ready to ship. Although student council was the largest group there, they spent time working with other local groups in packaging food. As a whole, the FMSC team worked to package over $2,000 worth of food that will provide enough meals to feed 31 children for 1 year! Way to go Student Council! Your contributions positively affect children across the globe!

This February, Lindop students fund raised for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients Program.  Students attended an assembly to learn more about blood cancers, and how they might be able to help.  At this assembly we learned that every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer, and every 9 minutes someone dies from blood cancer.  Students pulled together and competed to see which classroom could raise the most money.  There was significant positive feedback from families.  Students were provided with collection boxes, and collected currency ranging from pennies to $20 bills.  One family donated $400!  


After 3 weeks, Lindop raised a grand total of 2,828.28!  


Our third place classroom winner was Mrs. Terrell’s 3rd grade class, raising $110.55!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  This year will be one of building, reflecting, and “Moving from Good to Great, by any means necessary, unlimited potential, unlimited possibilities, with academic mastery.” We will continue to be politely relentless in our efforts to raise test scores, decrease behavioral incidents, and continue what has become our legacy of excellence.

Technology enhancements include our one-to-one learning expansion to include iPads for 3rd grade students, as well as new computers for our STEM lab.  Kudos to the Board of Education for turning this vision into a reality.

The 2015-2016 school year was centered on culture and climate.  While thinking forward, during this 2016-2017 school year, I continue to be personally resolute while leading the district to a new level of academic success, which is enveloped in unlimited opportunities and unlimited potential, and will be evidenced through our PARCC results.

We will absolutely meet our goals because of the proven dedication and commitment from our Board of Education, district and building leadership, teachers, staff, parents, and the greater community.

The Board of Education continues to provide support by providing the resources necessary to reach our goals of making our children the overarching priority, while continuing to be fiscally responsible.  I am privileged and blessed to work with a team that is aware of the magnitude of this endeavor, the impact of reaching our collective goals, and its effect on future generations.  We realize that "it is our reasonable duty to educate All children, acting as though it were impossible to fail, and realizing that Good Enough, Never Is."

Thank you for allowing me to serve our children.

Lindop Goes to Microsoft for Technology Workshop
Through the support of Junior Achievement, several of our 5th thru 8th graders participated in a six week technology workshop with Microsoft, which introduced them to various code development and Office Suite applications. They also learned about Microsoft as a business, a culture, and a career.  Students were able to meet with Microsoft employees and engage in activities focused on various positions in the computer industry. Using the Microsoft Digital Literacy Curriculum, our students were introduced to the the basics of code development and computer science through tools such as Touch Develop, Code.org, and Hour of Code. 

Microsoft hosts were highly impressed with our students' creativity and adaptability to new computer based products and processes.

The hope is that this will encourage them to continue working on their innovative ideas and inspirations for months and years to come. Congratulations to our future inventors and entrepreneurs!

Members of the Student Council and National Junior Honor Society took a field trip to the Proviso Food Pantry on February 29, 2016, to donate non-perishable food items. The food items were secured in during their "dance" fundraiser, where attendees were given the option to donate three canned goods in lieu of an entrance fee. Several students brought in more than the minimum, choosing to share with those in need. While at the Proviso Food Pantry, students learned that their donated food would be provided to the middle and working class, for those in need of supplemental food. Additionally, the Proviso Food Pantry provides food for the elderly and those families working hard to make ends meet. Students were able to see how the food was packaged, and were able to organize their food donations for equitable distribution, while meeting the needs of families. It was wonderful for our students to see their diligent efforts being deposited back to our community!

Lindop Students Service Westchester Nursing Home!
On December 14th, 2015, Lindop's Student Council and National Junior Honor Society had their first service field trip.  Lindop has partnered with Westchester Nursing Home so students can build relationships with the residents.  Every month, our students are scheduled to continue to visit Westchester Nursing home and spend time with senior citizens.  Students were able to receive information as well as share stories with the residents about their lives.  Our Lindop students were very helpful and thoughtful enough to bring food and gifts for each senior, while enjoying Bingo - the residents favorite game.  The seniors also enjoyed telling jokes throughout their time together.  Each winner was able to choose a prize, with the favorite choices being scarves, hats, gloves and socks.  At the end of the game Lindop students ensured that every participant left with a gift.  Lindop is extremely proud of our Student Council and National Junior Honors Society for taking the time to bring joy to members of our community!

Lindop students and families attended our annual high school fair on October 29, 2015. Students were able to meet and speak with representatives from 14 local high schools.  During the fair, the students were able to network, receive applications, and learn about available scholarships.  They were also able to ask questions and learn about multiple opportunities offered at each high school. There were over 35 families in attendance, and many of them stopped at multiple high school booths.  Many of the high schools brought spirit wear for raffle; we had over a dozen winners! Prizes ranged from school sprit wear to a waived fee for their high school entrance exam.  The high schools were very grateful to be out at Lindop, and commented on how much they enjoyed having Lindop alumni at their schools. Several of our very own Lindop alumni were able to speak to potential applicants.  The high school representatives are excited, and looking forward to meeting their next freshman class!
