A message from the Superintendent





Lindbergh Schools has been creating local

success stories in our community for

generations. Whether you are a student,
CRESTWOOD graduate, parent, employee or district resident,

chances are that somewhere along the line, a


44 ND 11 Lindbergh experience has pushed you to dream

BE 2
14 270
L SHIRE bigger and reach further.
Each of us has a story to tell, and this year our


12 FE
GR story is about change. Dressel Elementary


KR School is opening this fall and will serve more
PARK than 600 Lindbergh students in grades K-5. We

will also open a new Central Office, which will restore 8-10



District Boundary 9 additional classrooms at Lindbergh High School. Finally, I will end
Municipal Boundary M my 29-year career in education as a proud Lindbergh Flyer, and the
SUMMIT HUES TI Board of Education will begin its search for a new superintendent
St. Louis County

Jefferson County to lead Lindbergh Schools toward continued success.
BS One of my top priorities over the last decade has been to uphold
1. Administration Building, 4900 S. LindberghA Blvd. Lindbergh’s long standard of academic excellence, and prepare
2. Administration Building (Dec. 2017), 9350 Sappington Rd. students for success in a 21st century global society. We tell our
3. Lindbergh High School, 5000 S. Lindbergh Blvd. story at every opportunity so that Lindbergh’s reputation remains
4. Sperreng Middle School, 12111 Tesson Ferry Rd. strong, and young families continue to bring their children here for
5. Truman Middle School, 12225 Eddie & Park Rd. a first-class education. This ensures that Lindbergh continues to
6. Concord Elementary School, 10305 Concord School Rd. thrive as one of the best school districts in the state of Missouri.
7. Crestwood Elementary School, 1020 S. Sappington Rd. “Our story is NOW!” is Lindbergh’s 2017-18 theme, and I believe
8. Dressel School, 10911 Tesson Ferry Rd. there has never been a better, more important time to share it.
9. Kennerly Elementary School, 10025 Kennerly Rd. Have a great school year!
10. Long Elementary School, 9021 Sappington Rd. Sincerely,
