05/08/2024 – Nurse Appreciation Day
05/05/2024 – Superintendent’s Message

“Cinco de Mayo means the fifth of May in Spanish”

Dear Linden Families,

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As we commemorate the Mexican victory on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla, on behalf of Linden Public Schools and the Linden Board of Education, we honor Mexican Heritage and Culture. Enjoy festivities and celebrations.

Tomorrow starts Teacher Appreciation Week. We are grateful for our dedicated teachers who are passionate about shaping a child’s future through education. This week is a special opportunity to recognize and honor our teachers. We thank them for their commitment to promoting student academics and their social and emotional well-being. Our teachers create unbreakable bonds for unstoppable student progress and achievement. Our teachers are “OUR” teachers, and I am grateful.

In addition to celebrating our teachers, we want to recognize and appreciate the efforts of our school nurses, who play a vital role in keeping our students healthy and supported. Their compassion and expertise also support student well-being. Thank you, School Nurses, for addressing our students’ bumps and bruises inside and out. You are commended for the care you give us, as your patients.

Furthermore, we extend our warmest wishes to the Haitian community. Haitian Flag Day, known as “Fête du Drapeau” in Haitian Creole, is celebrated on May 18th each year. It is a significant holiday in Haiti commemorating the creation of the national flag. The day is marked by various festivities, ceremonies, and events celebrating Haitian culture and patriotism. This day serves as a reminder of the Haitian community’s rich culture, history, and contributions to our school and society. I appreciate that we unite to honor and celebrate our school community’s vibrant tapestry of diversity.

As we remain united, we also want to express our support for peace to our families affected by today’s global climate. As we develop students’ sense of belonging, we acknowledge their diverse background to support each child’s learning experience. Also, we celebrate the various forms of student expression, through our Award-Winning Fine Arts Department, Best Communities for Music Education. Best of luck to our performers in our Spring Concert and Art Shows that are taking place.

NJSLA Testing continues in our Middle Schools on Monday and Tuesday and at LHS on Thursday and Friday. Remind our students, the Ultimate Test is to do their Best. Wednesday, May 8th, is teacher in-service. Students have a 1/2-day early dismissal with lunch. Please contact your child’s teacher or school if more information is needed.

Take care,

Atiya Y. Perkins

Superintendent of Schools

04/28/2024 – Superintendent’s Message

Dear Linden Families,

As we approach warmer weather, remember that some classrooms and parts of the building are non-airconditioned. As we work towards upgrading our HVAC facilities, I encourage students to dress comfortably. The proper dress can be found in the Student Dress Policy: 5132. https://boardpolicyonline.com/?b=linden located on our Website.

Students must also adhere to our Code of Conduct in the student/parent/teacher handbooks. Water guns and water squirters are prohibited during school hours and to and from school.

Remain safe and enjoy the last Sunday of April with no “showers” in the forecast.

Take care,
Mrs. Perkins
