Charles Lindbergh Elementary School
401 Glen Ave
Summer Reading Project:
Studies have shown that having students read 4 or 5 books over the summer months can prevent reading achievement loss. Each student entering grades 2 through 6 in September will be required to complete a “Summer Reading Project” appropriate for his/her grade level and a reading log. Students entering grade 1 will be required to complete a reading log.
Both should be completed and handed in by September 10, 2021 to his/her teacher. There is also an optional writing project that your child may complete if they visit a special place over the summer.
Here are some online resources and incentives to help your child with his/her reading progress over the summer.

Congratulations to Emily Gong, a 6th grade student at Lindbergh School, who competed against 7th and 8th grade students from many different schools in the Bergen County Academies (BCA) MATHCOUNTS competition. She began by attending the Annual Joe Holbrook Competition last September hosted by BCA, just for fun, and made it into the Bronze Division. Based on that, BCA sponsored her to compete in a new well-known competition called MATHCOUNTS. She participated in the Chapter Competition and scored in the top 20% in Bergen/Hudson County, which meant she qualified for the next round, the Chapter Invitational Competition. Emily ranked 110 out of 224 in the Chapter Competition and represented Lindbergh School in the Chapter Invitational Competition. Emily learned so much from this experience and feels lucky to have had the opportunity to compete. She hopes to go to the State Competition in the future.
“I can help. I’m making a difference.”- Isaiah Shin
When schools closed in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Isaiah Shin and Evelyn Shin, grade 5 and 4, watched as COVID-19 patients filled hospitals and courageous healthcare workers rushed to their sides. They saw on TV that people were making ear guards from 3D printers for first responders whose ears would become chafed from long hours of wearing masks. They did not have access to a 3D printer, but they knew they wanted to help. So Isaiah and Evelyn got creative and used what they had. Within 20 minutes, they came up with their own version of ear guards made with small colorful rubber bands, normally used to make weaved bracelets, and “Hero Helpers” was born.
What started with a few gifts to friends and church members grew to donations of over 1,500 Hero Helpers to 6 hospitals across the nation. Isaiah and Evelyn are still making Hero Helpers and most importantly, they know they are making a difference.
