The students at School No. 1 worked extremely hard putting together an African American showcase, celebrating the tremendous accomplishments of these remarkable individuals. Each grade level was assigned a specific project focusing on famous athletes, musicians, inventors, civil rights leaders and their contributions to our world. Words of peace, equality, and justice encompass School No. 1 hallways, so that the children, teachers and staff are reminded daily of the message sent from history.

Students in Mr. Alvarez's class at Linden High School were part of a nonconformity experiment with great success. The students tackled this challenge using a number of different self created methods. Some students dressed out of the ordinary (yet still in dress code), others used creative make up, and many of them altered their personalities and behavior to challenge social norms.

The psychology students quickly discovered that the students of Linden High School are more accepting than once believed while the people they look to for approval, their teachers, may not be as accepting. Many psych students entered their lunches just like any other day and then challenged the existing norm by sitting with complete strangers, to their surprise the majority of tables accepted them wholeheartedly by initiating in conversation and inviting them for later days of lunch. Strangers agreed to hold hands with my students in the hall way and many hugs, high fives and greetings were shared between students and complete strangers.

The students reported that their teachers were a different story and often questioned their fashion sense or behavior, some teachers even requested that the students refrain from their odd behavior following questions like "Are you okay?" "Why do you look like that?" and "Is this some silly project for psychology?" The teachers' and students' reactions to the assignment revealed volumes to the students and they are already asking if they can do it again.

Students in Pre-K to 2nd grade at School No. 1 are preparing for Read Across America by reading Dr. Suess' books. The students were in the gym all dressed in red, white, and black, the Cat in Hat colors. The NJEA Cat in the Hat made a special visit to the students of School No. 1. The students had an opportunity to share their stories with the cat, gave it high-5's and hugs as they smiled ear to ear. The school emphasized how important Dr. Seuss was to reading and how important reading is to everyone. This was a kick-off event for Read Across America with many family involved activities planned in the coming weeks.

February 4, 2016 marked the successful conclusion of the Kiwanis Club of Linden's annual Walk-A-Thon Halloween Parade Project which was held jointly with all our K-Kids Clubs at the Linden elementary schools on October 30, 2015. Children's Specialized Hospital (CSH) was presented with a check for $2,250. 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.
Almost $1000 was raised by the K-Kids Clubs, and the remainder was raised by the Kiwanis Club of Linden, inclusive of generous contributions received from Infineum USA LP and Dr. William Osborn. School #4 contributed over $500.00 as part of their school family is receiving services from CHS. This year some schools used their donations for other causes – such as helping out a school family member who was sick. Special thanks to Danny Robertozzi, Superintendent of the Linden Public Schools and Chris Kolibas, our Kiwanis Club of Linden President, for attending our luncheon and their continual support of our programs. This fun fundraising event has become a Linden public schools / Kiwanis Club of Linden tradition.
Our Kiwanis Club of Linden was organized on November 7, 1946 and is looking to expand our membership. As this non-profit organization's population ages, regeneration is vital. Kiwanis is an international organization, and the mission is to change the world one community, one child at a time. So, let's continue to change Linden's future by continuing to teach children about serving others and community leadership. Kindly contact membership chair, June Lazaro, at Primerica, by calling (908) 687-9008 for further information about membership and/or attending our meetings. 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. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
