Lindbergh student groups join together in Sunday Night Lights to provide a real football game experience for young boys and girls. The community is invited to attend the event on Oct. 7 For more information, visit www.lindberghfootball.com.

Math Department Helps Fill Food Pantry
The Lindbergh High School math department held a one-week food drive in September to support Feed My People, after hearing the food pantry’s shelves were empty. Students and teachers collected $1,000 in donations, and enough food to fill the pantry’s truck. The food drive was organized by teacher Jen Swift. The class with the most food collected was Amy Kaiser’s sixth hour Algebra 2 class.
