On December 17 Jake McVey came by to do a surprise concert as an incentive for students that did not have an office referral during the month of December. Almost 90% of our kids earned this incentive! Could not be more proud of our kids!
Also - EVERYONE have a great break. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOMBARD!
I am currently working with my wonderful booster club to dramatically and professionally decorate our 8th grade hallway and gym. We have a variety of artifacts, pictures, and memorabilia from Lombard Middle School's early days to when this was Lombard College. This process is going to take some time to totally complete, but when finished it will be breathtaking and permanent. The company we are working to help create the design is a professional outfit that has an impeccable reputation. If you have students that currently are here at Lombard and/or you actually attended Lombard as a student - you should be a part of this process!
Sometime soon the booster club and I will be meeting to pick a finalized design concept and all are welcomed to attend. If you would be interested in joining us please email me for specifics - firstname.lastname@example.org
With only 2 weeks before Christmas break, I wanted to share with the Lombard community that we will be having a surprise celebration sometime before the month is done here at school. Students will only be allowed to attend as long as they have not have had an office referral during December. What the celebration is going to be is currently a secret among all of the kids. I LOVE recognizing kids when they make positive choices.
I have been EXTREMELY proud of how much improvement we as a building have made concerning our discipline data this year. Last month was extremely successful as we decreased our building office referrals by almost 60% when compared to the year before. I give total credit to this accomplishment to the staff and students of this building. Lombard is simply an awesome place to be!
