ST. SAVIOUR FESTIVAL
We would like to send a BIG thank you to St. Saviour Church and Murray Brothers for the opportunity to enjoy the rides and snow cones at the St. Saviour Festival from 2:00 pm- 3:00 pm on September 9, 2016. Everyone had a blast!
Linden Grove School is proud to use LEGO Education with our program. We have found that it not only helps facilitate a better learning experience, but it also sparks communication when its harder to express. Please read the following article about how another’s experience with LEGO has transformed their environment, too. Click this link to learn more about how it works.
Melodic Connections provides the music therapy for our student. It was flooded during the storms the other night in Norwood. Damage was significant to the instruments and the building. If you would like to help, please click the link. Thank You! https://www.gofundme.com/mcfloodrelief

NEXT WEEK DROP OFF/PICK UP PROCEDURES
Due to St. Saviour’s Festival set up and tear down, all parents must use the drop off line next week (Tuesday – Friday) and Monday of the following week for both drop off and pick up. Please enter Linden Grove School from the entrance off of Myrtle Avenue and exit off onto Lake Rd.
During Drop Off: Staff will be in the parking lot to assist with the students. Please do not get out of your car and walk your child into the building while in the car line. If you must enter the building with your child, parking will be very limited on the grass.
During Pick Up: Your child/children will be escorted to your car. Please do not get out of your car while in the car line. It would be very helpful if you put your child/children’s name on a piece of paper and stick it in your windshield to make pick up easier.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause; however the St.Saviour Festival is one of their major fundraisers and we want to make sure LGS is doing their part in supporting them. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation!
On the Fourth Friday of every Month, we will be having picnic lunches during lunch time! Whenever the weather is good, we will have our picnic lunches outside. If the weather is bad, don’t fret… the picnic is still on, as we will picnic in the Sensory Room on the 2nd floor!
How can you help? Please send in lunches that do NOT need to be microwaved on Fourth Friday Picnic Days. Of course, if you have a child with an extremely limited diet and you must send in a lunch that must be heated up, please let your child’s lunchroom supervisor know ahead of time so we can plan accordingly.
