Message from Mrs. Klimpl

Dear Linden Families,


Welcome to Linden’s 2015-2016 school year! Our first few days have been filled with many happy faces, loads of smiles, and budding friendships and bonds. I’d like to send a special thanks out to one of our Before School teachers, Mrs. Karen Hansen, who single handedly recultivated our Linden gardens both by the flagpole and the gym. Over the summer, Mrs. Hansen took weekly time to continue weeding the grounds, and watering, and was joined by two awesome high school students, Julie Palmer and Micaela Kitchen. We are grateful for such creative hands and a willingness for beautifying our school!


Please note that the important Verification sheets need to be returned to Linden as hard copies. If you tried to do the Verifications online, the system is not programmed at this time. Please do send all those sheets back to our office.


I am looking forward to seeing you all at our Back to School Nights.. this Thursday, Sept. 3rd for grades K,2, and 6.. in the MPR.. Mrs. Klimpl will speak at 7 pm so please join us there first. All parents are welcome that night. Back to School Night for grades 1 and 5 is scheduled for Tuesday, 9/8 at 7:30 pm directly in classrooms, unless you need to first attend the PEN parent meeting in our library at 7 pm. Our last BTSN will take place on 9/15 for grades 3 and 4, again at 7:30 pm directly in classrooms.


Feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or questions all during the year. Together we make a successful team for the good of all our children!

Join your friends at the Linden BACK TO SCHOOL BASH this Friday 9/4/15 !!!

(Please note that the Bash goes until 7:30. The flyer that you received in the Wednesday folder said until 7:00)

September's Boomerang Asset - Caring

For those of you who are new to Linden, CB Cares Educational Foundation partners with local schools, businesses, and individuals to help promote positive attitudes and behaviors, particularly with the community's youth. Each month CB Cares focuses on an asset that helps young people grow up to be healthy, caring and responsible. Parents, family members, neighbors, etc. have the chance to recognize students that exemplify each month's asset. The student will be recognized in a Spirit Assembly at school and invited to attend breakfast with Mrs. Klimpl and other "Boomerang' nominees. Please refer to CB Cares website for further information www.cb-cares.org.


Therefore, do you know a young person who is caring? Does he/she think about ways of helping others? Does he/she initiate kind and thoughtful acts for others? Please recognize this person with a Boomerang nomination! You may send your nominations to Sue Ponente at sponente@cbsd.org by September 15, 2015. If you have any questions feel free to contact Kim Denicore at kimdenicore@yahoo.com.
