Bank of Springfield
Bank of Springfield sponsors the Lindsay student of the week luncheon. This is a special occasion for each of our students. They take a letter home announcing the honor of being student of the week. Next, a picture is taken and displayed in the hallway for a week. On Friday, the students invite their parents or a friend to a pizza lunch with table decorations in their honor. The students receive a certificate, a gift and sing the school song for their guests.
Jeffers Family McDonald's
McDonald's participated in the Big Block Bash by donating the drinks as well as passing out free items. They also partnered with the Lindsay staff for a McTeacher's night where the teachers served over 100 students and their families. In addition, Ronald McDonald came to Lindsay and led a 'Get Fit' assembly.
Isringhausen Imports assisted Lindsay in the purchase of two 'Standing Desks' where more active students have the opportunity to stand (as opposed to sit) to better fit their learning style. These specifically designed desks allow 'active learners' the opportunity to still participate in class discussions and work without the restrictions of a typical desk.
Illinois State University
The Professional Development School Model is a mutual support between Illinois State University and Lindsay. ISU student teachers are given a year-long learning experience with some of the best teachers in Springfield. The student teachers get to learn what it is like to open and close a classroom, prepare for and provide parent/teacher conferences and monitor student learning for an entire year. Lindsay receives the honor of helping these new educators and our students benefit from extra hands in the classroom.
