Mrs. Andersen and Miss Prakapas' third grade classes at School No. 9 recently completed a diorama project on biomes. Students created a diorama, completed a written report, and presented what they learned to their class. The project focused on how we as humans interact with our planet and how climate affects the land, plants, and animals. Here are four students happily showing off their biome dioramas!

Her games were 278, 275, 216. Her current high school average is 194. This summer she had the opportunity to compete in the Junior Gold League at Carolier Lanes for the State of NJ. The Junior Gold Championships is an annual national tournament for the top male and female youth bowlers in the United States. The tournament awards scholarships and youth bowlers competing in the U20 and U15 divisions also have the opportunity to earn a spot on Junior Team USA. Last June she came in 2nd place competing against college girls. Finishing in 2nd place afforded her a spot to the National BowlingTournament in Chicago, Illinois. The competition will be in the summer of 2015. Michelle began bowling when I was 5 years old. The Jersey Lanes Youth Bowling program is where she learned how to bowl. This program is highly regarded as one of the best in the state. Bowling has taught Michelle discipline, commitment and has shown that hard work pays off. She is looking forward to competing for the county team and individual title as well as a state team title. She is a dedicated student athlete who understands how important academic growth is and the ultimate goal is to acquire a scholarship for a colligate career. Michelle is in excellent academic standing receiving A's and B's in all major subject areas. Her best class is English which provides her a challenge. Linden students are required to maintain a specific average by their coaches in order to become eligible to play. If Michelle wants to get on bowling alley, she has to earn that privilege by performing well in the classroom. Bowling serves as motivation for doing well in the classroom.
