Leaving GTL with honors! The attached 5th grade students are leaving GTL and moving to middle school holding an A average for the 19/20 school year! We will miss our Cool Cubs and are so proud of them.


Rising Super Stars! Congratulations to the attached 5th graders who have maintained Honor Roll.  We know they will rise to the top in middle school!!



Congratulations to the attached COOL CUBS in grades 2-4 who have maintained a 4.0 all school year.  This is hard work and can not go unnoticed.


Shout out to these SMARTIES in grades 2-4 who finished the 19-20 school year with Honor Roll!!  Great job Cool Cubs.

Are you relocating to another school for the 2020-2021 school year and needing to WITHDRAW your child from GTL??

This is NOT for students leaving to go to middle school. This is for students needing to withdraw from PK-4th grade as they are changing schools.

Please complete the following google form (one per child). Once all of your child's information is gathered, a staff member will contact you with further guidance.

Thank you for helping us get this process started for you!

Green T Lindon Parent Calendar








School is in session from 7:55am to 3:10pm. Students will be considered tardy if they are not in class at 7:55am
Students are not to be dropped off before 7:25am. Our car rider line enters campus from Foster Park. We close back gates at 7:53am to insure that students are in class for 7:55am. We are more lenient during the first two weeks of school as everyone is becoming familiar with our system.

Students are not to be dropped off in the neighborhood surrounding the school. This is a safety hazard. Only students who have proof of residence that indicates they live within walking distance (1 mile) will be allowed to leave campus as a walking student. Please assist us as we strive to maintain a campus that is safe for all children.

Last but not least, we are looking forward to working with you at Green T. Lindon. The academic, social, emotional, and behavioral success for all students is important to us!

GTL Mission Statement:

Growing
Together to

Coming together to
Use knowledge and
Be
Successful!

GTL Cub Pledge


"As a Green T. Lindon Cub, I pledge to care about others,

use good manners, be responsible and safe, and show school spirit."
