Racing ‘round the World

As part Summer Camp Amazing Race week activities, 4-8 students have explored different ways to travel the world including trains, planes, hot air balloons, boats, and more.

For ideas and inspiration, Mr. Luken’s class enjoyed reading a student version of 80 Days Around the World by Jules Verne. Students tracked the journey of Phileas Fogg as he traveled from London to Egypt, India, Hong Kong, Japan, and the U.S. before arriving home, travels largely by steam-powered trains and boats.

Symbols of Pride and Patriotism

Sports fans show pride for their team by displaying their team’s colors and its symbols. We also show pride or patriotism in our country by displaying symbols like the American flag. Mrs. Kubachka’s 4-6 Team social studies students recently reviewed symbols and words that reflect America’s heritage and values:

American Flag – Our nation’s first flag had 13 stars and 13 stripes representing the 13 colonies. Since then, the flag has added a new star for each new state.

Encouraging Understanding and Empathy through History

Exploring history from multiple perspectives helps students connect with the past, and helps them understand current issues. It also encourages students to consider multiple sources when considering any event, and to empathize with different perspectives in their own world, helping to create a kinder, more inclusive community.

Most recently, middle school students studied the western expansion in the U.S. during the first half of the 19th century. They considered this important period in our country’s history from the perspective of the pioneers who sought land, religious freedom, or gold; and that of the American Indians whose lives were impacted by the Indian Removal Act and how white settlers made it increasingly difficult to find food.

Earlier this year, 4-8 grade students also expanded their knowledge of the American Civil War and Underground Railroad. Middle school students read the story of Sadako Sasaki, a student whose life was cut short by leukemia, an aftereffect of the atom bomb that fell on her hometown of Hiroshima.

Parent-Staff Partnerships Resilient amid COVID-19

When parents and teachers work as partners, children do better in school and at home: children’s work habits and attitudes about school improve, and they demonstrate better social skills and fewer behavior problems.

Faced with the challenges created by COVID-19, Linden Grove School is grateful for the efforts of parents and staff not only to support student learning, but also to maintain the school’s sense of community. Together they helped students stay connected through online classrooms and communications, and maintained school traditions including Trunk-or-Treat and monthly spirit days.

LGS Parent Appreciation for Staff Peaks in Early May

Parents and other family members show support and appreciation for LGS staff all year long through kind words, special treats, and more. But for Staff Appreciation Week, the first full week of May, parents go all out to express their gratitude.
