Morning Playground

A reminder that the playground is closed before school so our Flyers Club has full access. Students are not allowed on the playground at this time. We have a considerable amount of students out there in the morning. Thank you for your cooperation.

Dressel Book Fair - Volunteer Opportunity

Dressel’s Scholastic Book Fair is fast approaching. Students will be able to preview the fair and make their wish lists on May 4-5. They will then be able to shop during the week of May 8-12. There will be a special shopping opportunity during Color Run and Spring Festival on May 6th from 9:30am-1pm.. If you would rather not send your student with cash, Scholastic offers an easy way for your kids to purchase their books with eWallet. Here is the link to load your child’s eWallet. All they will need to do is give their name at checkout.

If you are looking for a way to be involved and volunteer, working at the bookfair is a perfect way to get started. Here is the link to sign up to volunteer…

Earth Day News by Dressel Students

Hello Dressel families,

Today we will talk about the pros and cons with plastic bags versus reusable bags.

First thing’s first, we will start off with the bad things about plastic bags. One bad thing about plastic bags is the litter. Have you ever looked out of the window of your car on the highway and seen plastic bags drifting in the wind? Plastic bags are found in places like this almost every day of your life. A way to prevent this is by using reusable bags.

Another thing with plastic bags is you only use it once, and according to the Earth Policy Institute, “Currently 100 billion plastic bags pass through the hands of U.S. consumers every year--almost one bag per person each day. Laid end-to-end, they could circle the equator 1,330 times.”

Another con about plastic bags is that they are not recyclable. If they were, the world would be a better place. Plastic bags are also not biodegradable. Biodegradable means if you left it to rot in the sun it wouldn't decompose like a fruit or veggie would.

Now here is a reason why plastic bags are not good for the environment. For one thing, plastic bags release greenhouse gasses during production and when exposed to the elements. This is not good because greenhouse gasses are gasses in the earth's atmosphere that trap heat, which leads to global warming.

Now here are some reasons why reusable bags are good for the environment. First it's not a one and done thing. Reusable bags are called reusable for a reason. The thing with reusable bags is you can reuse them multiple times. For example, if stores started selling reusable bags instead of plastic ones it would be better for the environment. Also, reusable bags tend to be bigger than plastic bags.

Some cons with reusable bags are that reusable bags can carry germs. According to “Reusable bags can harbor bacteria and viruses. Harmful bacteria can thrive in reusable bags unless users clean them properly after each use with soapy water.”

In conclusion they both have pros and cons, and it's hard to decide which ones are better for the environment. So I'll let you decide. Which one do you choose?

Bike Riders and Lost & Found

As the weather has warmed up, we've noticed an increase in bike riders to Dressel. We strongly encourage all students to wear helmets to school. We would also like families to complete this form so we have a record of how your student is getting home (only for families that didn't complete it at the beginning of the year).

Also, as the year wraps up, all items in the Lost & Found will be donated at the end of the day on Friday, May 19th.

Elementary School Hula Hoop Contest - May 5

Lindbergh High School Student Council invites all elementary school students to attend the “Play for Q” event on Friday, May 5 and participate in a special hula hoop contest to raise money for a student scholarship through the Lindbergh Schools Foundation.

Quintyn Lewis, better known as “Q” to his friends, was a LHS student who passed away earlier this school year. All proceeds from this event will go toward the Foundation’s “Live Like Q” scholarship fund.

Admission is $2, and all are welcome to attend! The hula hoop contest begins at 7 p.m., followed by a LHS student vs. staff volleyball game at 7:15 p.m.

New Student Information System Launching Soon

We are excited to announce the launch of a new student information system, Infinite Campus, which will replace Tyler SIS beginning in the 2023-24 school year. With Infinite Campus, you will be able to check your student’s grades, attendance records, and other important information from your phone, tablet, or computer. You will also be able to communicate with your student’s teachers and stay up-to-date on assignments and events.

While parents will continue to have access to the SIS Portal for the remainder of this school year, Annual Online Verification for the 2023-24 school year will begin in May, using Infinite Campus. Please look for more information coming soon.

Lindbergh staff have been training regularly to ensure a smooth transition for district families. In fact, our new kindergarten families used Infinite Campus for new student registration this Spring, and their feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are confident that Infinite Campus will be a great improvement for Lindbergh students and families throughout the school year, and we cannot wait to show you all the great features it has to offer!

Be on the lookout soon for login information and helpful tips!
