Personal Safety Lessons

Dear Parent Community,

Next week, you will receive a letter communicating that your child will be participating in a health unit, Personal Safety, in the coming weeks. Prior to instruction, we are required to receive consent from parents/guardians in elementary. Please complete the form and return it by December 9, 2022 to your child's homeroom teacher. Again, you can expect to receive the consent form the week of November 28th.

Linden's Holiday Giving Tree

Please consider helping Linden Families in Need this Holiday Season!

Every year during the holidays, our community has generously supported Linden Families in Need.

This year, any families or staff that are interested in helping can do so by donating cash, check (made out to Linden Elementary) or gift cards.

Our hope is to provide families in need with gift cards to purchase food and gifts (Giant, Acme, Weis, Walmart, Kohl's or Target) to make their holiday special.

This is a wonderful way to show compassion, caring and kindness to others.

Help us bring a smile to members of our Linden Community by donating this year!

The CB Farmers Market at Barclay- Thursday, December 8th

Any Central Bucks family who may need a little extra food assistance is welcome to join on us at Barclay Elementary School. Our drive-up food distribution runs from 4:30 to 5:30 PM on Thursday, December 8th. We generally have free dry goods, fresh produce, milk, eggs, and bread, and often have some frozen meat and poultry.

No advanced sign-up is necessary. We kindly ask that you do not line up before 4:30 so as not to interfere with our student dismissal, and that you do not block our neighbors’ driveways. If you do line up during our student dismissal, you will be kindly asked to leave. Also, do not pull forward until you are certain that you have enough room and will not block someone’s driveway. Our neighbors are very understanding and supportive of our work, but also need to come and go during our events. We hope to see many families at our food distribution on Thursday, December 8th at 4:30.

Please Note: There will only 1 Food Distribution in December due to the Holidays.

Have a wonderful, safe Holiday Season.
