Lindbergh Schools Board of Education members and administrators met with representatives from local churches last week to discuss updates in the schools and how both institutions can work together to meet the needs of students.

“Churches and schools both play vital roles in our community, and each institution becomes stronger when we communicate and work well together,” Superintendent Jim Simpson stated in a district news release. “This annual meeting provides an opportunity for us to share what is going on at Lindbergh, and also hear thoughts and ideas about how we can work together to maintain a thriving community.”
