PLEASE take the time to contact your local rep and ask them to support HB64, which will increase the maximum dollar amount of the Autism Scholarship to $27,000.

As of today, the bill was passed through the state Senate, only to be rejected by the House, and is now in House Conference Committee which is comprised of 3 state reps and 3 state senators. They will work to reach a compromise, and we need to make sure that an increase in funding to the Autism Scholarship is a part of it.

TAKE TIME TODAY to make a phone call or write an email, talk about your experience and the impact that the Autism Scholarship has made, and why this increase is crucial. The budget will be finalized by next Friday, as the deadline is June 30.

This link makes it easy and it will only take 5 minutes of your time. This is a real game changer for so many of our kids. Plus these funding increases will bolster job security for those who work with our children.,-includes-great-news-for-school-choice/

Please forward this info to anyone else who might be impacted by the passage of these changes.

The New Playground










Linden Grove students are loving the new playground! It has so much to offer from the safe rubberized mulch, to the ten swings, to the opportunities to run and climb. Thanks again to everyone involved with the campaign that made this dream a reality.

Spirit Day: September 19th








Today was our first pizza & spirit day of the school year. Can you guess the theme?
