Linden Winter Programs Begin Next Week!

Programs will run from January 24th-March 4th.

If your child's program is held at Linden, it will run from 4:00-5:00 pm.


Those programs include; Dodgeball, French, Roboost, Floor Hockey, Pink Skirt Desserts, Pokemon, Cheer, Yoga, Basketball, and Lego.

Students involved in those programs will be dismissed directly from their classroom to their Winter Program location. Classroom teachers and staff will be notified of the program locations.

Pick up for programs held at Linden will be at 5:00 pm and located in the front of Linden, similar to Kindergarten drop-off/pick up. Please make sure your carpool Linden magnet is on the outside of your passenger side car door. If your child will be going home with another Linden Winter Program parent, please let the office staff know of the change, the day of the program.


If your child's program is off-site (Doylestown Rock Gym and Paint n Pottery), those programs will run from 4:15-5:15 pm. Parents/guardians of those students participating in off-site programs are required to provide transportation to and from the off-site location.

All instructors of Winter Programs will have rosters of students involved in their specific program and will take attendance at the beginning of each session.


Please do not email Rebekah Massey if your child will be absent from a Winter Program.

Need a Sweatshirt or Hoodie??? Order from the Linden Winter Spirit Wear Sale! Just click the link here. Turn around time is 3-4 weeks and the sale end at 11:59pm on Sunday, Jan. 23rd.

Are you Prepared for the Weather?

Winter Weather Reminder:


  • As the winter weather has arrived, please be sure that the children have coats, hats, etc. for outdoor recess. We try to make sure the children get outside for fresh air and enjoy some physical activity throughout the winter months, based on the temperature and wind chill factors. In addition, please be sure to label your child's clothing and items brought to school. This will help us to eliminate an overcrowded lost and found area!


  • Please be sure to check out the District School Closing Information page. Be prepared for Inclement Weather and School Delays.

Linden Elementary was inspired by the "What Lifts You" mural in Nashville, TN.

The mural is an interactive experience to integrate yourself and become the highlight of the piece. The wings are meant for reflection on what lifts your spirits.

Thank you for lifting our spirits with your support and appreciation!

Do you need to be tested? How about a Covid-19 home test on hand? See the information above. Keep your family safe.
