Linden Public Schools and the New Jersey Department of Education’s Office of School Preparedness and Emergency Planning hosted a presentation on School Safety and Security on February 23rd. Many topics were discussed including the equipment and technology to improve safety and security. During the presentation, the audience learned the different security drills that are practiced and implemented in a real emergency. The safety of Linden Public School students and educators is of utmost importance.

A very important lesson that was taught to everyone in attendance was one of the best and most cost effective ways to improve Linden Public School safety and security is by the community being vigilant and involved. Stay alert, update phone numbers, email addresses and ask questions.
Together, as a Community of Linden, we can ensure the safety and security of our students while improving their quality of education.

On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, School No. 4 in Linden hosted a Family Technology Café. This event brought out over 100 community members inclusive of students, parents, and Assistant Superintendent, Denise Cleary.

In an effort to involve families in the learning community, School No. 4 applied for a FAST (Families and Schools Together) grant through the Linden Education Association. The event was coordinated by Suzanne Olivero, Literacy Coach, and Wayne Happel, Vice Principal. The grant provided the funding to cover the entire cost of this event. In addition, Conoco Phillips Bayway Refinery and Infineum co-sponsored the event by donating an IPad Mini, laptop, and tablets. These items were raffled at the end of the night. The evening was planned in an effort to increase parent involvement and to make parents aware of technological resources available to their students in school and at home. Families were provided with dinner, then watched a movie created by the Vanguard team featuring students. They then broke out into grade-level sessions where their children guided them through various internet resources and programs used in their classrooms. At the conclusion of the session, each group played an interactive game of “Kahoot.” The winner in each session received a USB Flash Drive.

We would be remiss not to mention the dedicated teachers and staff members of the School 4 faculty as well as the support from building principal Anthony Cataline who helped make this event possible.
Families and students beamed as they exited the event, and are anticipating the next FAST event, “I Scream for Summer Learning!” to be held in June.

Students at School No. 2 were given a problem on "How could quilts be used to assist slaves in reaching Canada? We then discussed 4 books on how slaves used quilts as maps and secret codes to guide them to the Underground Railroad. Our class then created their own Freedom Math Quilts by working on math problems to create patterns similar to the ones that slaves used. Then we published a persuasive writing piece on which method was the best method that assisted slaves to reach freedom. Students felt a great sense of pride that they too created a similar quilt as their ancesters.
