On the evening of Wednesday, October 26th, slightly more than 2 months after the destructive earthquake on August 24th that devastated large parts of central Italy and stole nearly 300 lives, Italy was once again struck by two earthquakes of magnitude 5.5 and 6.1. Thankfully there have been no additional fatalities; yet, the physical destruction of these cities and towns is colossal and will require years to recover. This is the year that the Linden High School community takes part in the Italian Exchange program. Just a few short months ago, we hosted our Italian brothers and sisters and we will visit Italy in a few short weeks. Therefore, we felt it necessary to act in some small way to help ease the pain of this destructive natural disaster. Through an apparel sale, the Italian National Honor Society raised $300.00 which was then donated to the Italian American Relief Organization sponsored by the National Italian American Foundation. Students, and those who made donations, should be very proud that their efforts are part of the nearly 8 million dollars raised for those in the towns of Accumoli, Amatrice, Posta and Arquata del Tronto where there are still thousands of Italians homeless. Italy, we are with you! L’Italia, siamo con voi!

On March 9th Children's Specialized Hospital (CSH) was presented with a big check for $1755. Children's Specialized Hospital is the nation's leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children from birth to 21 years of age. The children who are treated at Children's Specialized face special health challenges which range from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries, to developmental and behavioral issues like autism and mental health. At 13 different New Jersey locations, our pediatric specialists partner with families to make our many innovative therapies and medical treatments more personalized and effective...so children can achieve more of their goals. “To learn more about Children’s Specialized Hospital and how to get involved, please visit their website at www.childrens-specialized.org.

Donations were raised by the K-Kids Clubs during their Halloween parade, and the remainder was raised by the Kiwanis Club of Linden, inclusive of a generous contribution received from Infineum USA LP. School No. 4 contributed over $200 so our luncheon was held there. This year some schools used their donations for other causes – such as helping out a school family member who was sick. Special thanks to Sabrina Elson, our current Kiwanis club of Linden President, for her kind words and for her continual support of this project. This fun fundraising event has become a Linden public schools / Kiwanis Club of Linden tradition. We dine at Primavera's Café & restaurant for lunch on Thursdays.

Special thanks to all of our community for the support of time and money throughout the years. Our success depends on our community. Plans are underway for our pancake breakfast in September on September the 16th and our Taste of Linden on November the 6th or the 13th so look for the updates. We dine at Primavera's Café & restaurant for lunch on Thursdays.
Please call me June Lazaro, secretary and membership chair at 908 930-8310 with questions or if interested in joining our club.

School One held its annual circus themed S.M.A.R.T. night on March 23rd 2017. This was made possible by a F.A.S. T grant sponsored by the Linden Education Association. It was an enjoyable evening with the emphasis on family learning, fun, engagement, and collaboration. Families participated in a variety of interactive activities such as Kahoot Math, Differentiated Math Centers, Beat the Principal Typing, Wacky Science, Arts and Crafts, Karaoke, Photo Booth Writing, Music and Movement to name a few.

Each station had a specific objective that correlated to the acronym of S.M.A.R.T. - Science, Math, Reading, Art, and Technology. For example, in the Photo Booth Writing Station students were encouraged to write about their personal experiences at the School One Carnival. This collaborative activity fostered conversations regarding how simple steps in journaling, writing letters to family members, and simple narratives retelling fun experiences can engage students in writing. The Karaoke Station is an example where mastering fluency can come in the form of singing fun! In addition to the above examples, all other stations included the opportunity for parents and students to practice sequencing, gross and fine motor skills, understanding processes, problem solving, deductive reasoning, and team building.

The teachers cohesively worked as a team honing in on the myriad of talent to transfer School One into a circus themed atmosphere. The planning and implementation of this event took several committees working together to define objectives and fine-tune their assigned tasks. All of the details bridged the planning phase into fruition, and ultimately turned into a magical moment in time.
