“Youth for United Way” has committed to a two-year fundraising and educational awareness project with the YWCA of Union County. During the month of May, Lillian Ribeiro, Community Educator for the YWCA provided two days of domestic violence awareness training to health classes in the Media Center at Linden High School.

Linden High School Chemistry students in Kelly Gallagher's class went outside on June 16th to use "applied thermodynamics" to make ice cream. The students did some other experiments, demonstrating endothermic and exothermic reactions. This time, we used the process to our own benefit!
According the the Laws of Thermodynamics, the frozen ice cubes will naturally absorb the heat/energy from the room temperature ingredients. However, if we add sodium chloride (table salt) to the ice cubes, it actually lowers the freezing temperature (which is the same reason we salt roads in the winter), forcing even more energy/heat out of the ice cream ingredients.... which is what freezes the cream, sugar & flavoring into creamy delicious ice cream! - they had such a blast, it was the perfect last lab.

Under the guidance of music teacher Lisa Mallick, Schools 4 & 10 have piloted a new music program called "Recorder Karate". The program is being used in 3rd grade music classes as an instructional tool that helps in the understanding of note & rhythm reading. Students learn different songs on the recorder; as the songs increase in difficulty students earn different colored "belts" that are tied onto their recorder. Due to the success of the program it will be implemented district wide next year. Pictured are the School 4 & School 10 third graders performing during concerts put on for their family and friends.
