This week has been wonderful, exciting, and overwhelming :)
It was bizarre seeing large groups of kids doing homework by choice before school because they were able to utilize their chromebooks. In addition, walking into classrooms and seeing so many kids engaged while they use this resources has been awesome. I truly think these chromebooks are one of the greatest things to ever happen here at Lombard, and I am thrilled to be a part of this.
There are a lot of reasons this is a great school. However, one of the main reasons is the amount of school spirit that I see here every day from both staff and students. Personally, I've never seen a school that constantly has so many people wearing Lombard shirts to represent their pride. It really is an awesome thing that I will never take for granted. I am proud to be a Zephyr!
Also, please make sure you do your best to be at the open house Monday night beginning at 5:30pm. The first 30 minutes will be for you and your child to visit teacher's in their classrooms. Then at about 6pm I will use our intercom system to ask all families to come to our auditorium for a welcome back presentation from me with information on our chromebook initiative.
We are lombard!

Student pictures will be taken Monday, September 22 during the day. Also, the open house will be on this evening from 5:30 until 7pm.
I'm excited because the students will all be given their chromebooks soon. All of them have arrived and are currently being sorted. Please do your best to attend our parent open house on September 22. We will begin at 5:30 and end our evening in the auditorium with a presentation on this chromebook implementation. This is exciting and will be a wonderful opportunity for Lombard and all of our students.
Also make sure to follow us on twitter! Great way to stay up to date with everything that is going on here!
I continue to be absolutely blown away with the work ethic and passion of this entire staff. I have been here late every night this week working, and there has always been others teachers in this building putting in a late night, too. It's been wonderful having the kids back and its been so much fun getting to know them.
Beginning this week we are going to start having a weekly video update from 8th graders on current events here at the school. Check it out. It is found within the weekly update tab on the top of the web page.
Some of the pics below are the reasons this is the greatest school in the world!
