BLACK HISTORY MONTH:
The Lindenwold Public Schools are proud to honor Black History Month through curricular experiences, school-wide events and festivities, and community partner celebrations.
Each year Lindenwold chooses a theme to celebrate a specific aspect or dimension of Black History. Teachers, particularly in social studies, provide students with instruction on that theme within the context of their curriculum. For example, for the 2022-23 year, our theme is “Black Resistance.” During February each week receives a specific focus within that theme.
This year the focus areas are as follows:
Week 1 - Resistance during Slavery
Week 2 - Early 1900’s
Week 3 - Resistance during Civil Rights
Week 4 – Resistance Today
Teachers use provided curricular resources to develop lessons relating to each of these aspects of the yearly theme. Throughout the month students in various grade levels are engaged in a wide variety of learning experiences:
- an activity entitled - "Our Progress: A Look Into Social Injustice,"
- a Black History Month Quilt Project,
- a Choice Board: The Forces of Abolition,
- a reflection activity -
"If you could meet one African American in history who would it be and why?"
- and students have explored history through spiritual song - "Wade in the Water."
These are some of the different examples of activities our students are engaging in:
2/16/23: KINDNESS DAY
2/16/23: CULTURAL PRIDE DAY
Our LHS student leaders have requested to make Thursday, Black History Month "Pride Day." Students may leave their uniform dress home and choose to wear a red, black, or green shirt/sweatshirt, a shirt/sweatshirt with a positive / inspiring quote/phrase by an African American Leader / role model, or an African style shirt, too. Students who choose to participate may wear jeans (no holes or rips), sweatpants, or uniform pants.
Students will also engage in a "sharing your voice" activity. Students will have the opportunity to share their perspective on what it means to honor Black History, students may also share what Black Resistance means to them, or how the school can best understand what life in 2023 looks like for our students and your peers. This is a great opportunity to learn about one another from one another - students and staff.
The Lindenwold Coaching Team was also invited to present our instructional coaching model to the Camden County Curriculum Consortium. While we have employed instructional coaches to support staff in years past, this year we have really honed our skills, focused on a consistent protocol, and adjusted our model to a "District Support Lens." We are honored to share our great practices with our county partners and are proud of the ways in which we support our fellow Lion teachers.
We were fortunate to have them watch our security drills and then meet with us to discuss and debrief together. The safety and security of our staff and students is our #1 concern. Learning from the best and our state experts is the best way to perfect our practices.
Congratulations to our classes who CRUSHED their quarterlies in their grade!!!!!

This has been a year long process. Representatives have visited several other districts to review their lunch practices. We have ordered new cafeteria / lunch equipment. Students now have the opportunity to review our new lunch selections. Now our students at LMS & LHS are being invited to test taste some new selections / foods.
We are working hard to meet our students likes, choices, and interests.
Congratulations to our January Pawsitively PURRFECT students!
