Newport Aquarium. Continue reading “Marine Life Explorations”
Art activities—like music, painting, drawing and dramatic play—allow students to practice self-expression, which is great for emotional health and happiness. Art activities encouraging self-expressions and creativity are also associated with better academic outcomes, including higher reading, writing, science and math scores.

Linden Grove School (LGS) is proud to the most recent Duke Energy School of the Week featured on Local 12 WKRC.
LGS was nominated by Jenny Cunningham whose son thrived in response to the school’s specialized approach to education. In a letter to Local 12 WKRC, Mrs. Cunningham explained:
“Linden Grove School Linden Grove is more than a school. It’s a support system that can be life-changing for many families. . . .
“The kids are happy here and they’re comfortable here and they don’t have to try to be somebody they’re not. They are welcome for who they are. It’s just very rewarding as a parent to know that you can send your child here and they’re going to get everything they need from top to bottom.”
As School-of-the-Week, Linden Grove School was visited by Local 12’s Perry Schaible and Duke Energy vice-president Jim Henning, who presented the school with a check for $1,000.
Science and technology are integral components of today’s educational landscape. The GE Engineering Product Integration Center (PIC) department not only donated $1,500 toward the cost of piloting a Robotics after-school program at LGS, more importantly, they provided mentors to work side by side with our students.
The donation went toward the purchase of LEGO® EV3 MINDSTORM robots and an instructor from ISpace. ISpace is a non-profit organization that promotes, supports, and hosts engaging Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs to schools. This was such a wonderful opportunity for our students and Linden Grove School. Because of the overwhelming success of the program, Robotics is now being offered as an elective to our 6-8 grade students.
“I appreciate the opportunity to work with the students at the Linden Grove School. The students demonstrated determination and focus, listening to the directions, programming their robot, troubleshooting and finally celebrating their success. This is what school is all about and a hands-on activity such as this was the perfect opportunity,” said Colin Vogt, a GE Aviation mentor.
