8/19 Lincoln PTO Newsletter

Lincoln Families,

Welcome to the most exciting week of the year! Since the beginning of summer break countless behind the scene efforts have been in motion to prepare for the return of your kids and the beginning of another adventure at our Fine Fine School!

Please accept my apologies for the delay in the delivery of the class assignment e-mail this past week. I realize this mishap caused some anxiety and frustrations for several families and I appreciate your patience and support as we worked through the glitches. As with doing anything for the first time, we learned a few lessons along the way that will aide us in being more efficient in the future.

Hopefully your family took advantage of this past weekend and these next few days to savor every last moment of Summer ’18! While I’m personally still a bit in denial about the end of summer I couldn’t be more excited to welcome your kids back to Lincoln in just a few days!

As you prepare for day 1, here are a few helpful reminders:

Don’t forget:

  • Monday, August 20, 6:00 Lincoln School New Family Welcome in the Lincoln School auditorium.
  • Thursday, August 23 is the first full day of classes for 1st – 4th Graders
  • Thursday, August 23 AM/PM Kindergarten orientation will occur from 8:30-9:30 for AM kids and families and 12:30-1:30 for PM kids and families.

Arrival: Students are encouraged to arrive no earlier than 8:00 each morning. There will be staff supervision at both the Park and Franklin entrances from 8:00-8:15 each day. The entry bell rings at 8:15 and the instructional bell at 8:20.

Dismissal: Dismissal is at 3:10 each day. Lincoln staff will also supervise both the Park and Franklin exits from 3:10-3:25. This year at 3:25 we will ring one final bell signaling all students on the playground without a supervising adult to travel home. For student safety purposes, only students supervised by an adult should remain on the playground after 3:25. Students still waiting to be picked up will escorted to the office.

Carpool Line: Please always remember to exercise caution in the carpool lines.

  • Please refrain from parking in the line.
  • Students should always exit the vehicle from the passenger side.
  • Please wait patiently for the vehicle in front of you to proceed before exiting the line.

Attendance: When reporting student absences, please be sure to call our attendance line 708.366.7340, Ext 8182, or send an e-mail to lincolnattendance@district90.org

Hero Boys

HERO Boys is a youth development and engagement program for boys in 3rd – 5th grades. Using running as a base activity HERO Boys inspires boys to discover the character and courage that resides inside each one of them to be brave, stand for that which is right, and use their talents and strengths to lead and set the positive example amongst their peers. The school-based program is 8 weeks long and culminates with the HERO Boys 5K including boys from all schools participating in the program.

Program will run on Mondays from 3:15-4:15. The cost is $75. Please email anne gall if you’d like to participate, annegall3@gmail.com.

Volunteer in the Library!

Do you love books? Do you love to organize? If yes, please consider becoming a Lincoln Library volunteer. Over 25,000 books were checked out last year. Of course, what goes out, must come back! Volunteers are extremely vital to the library. They help to get the books back on the shelves quickly so they can be checked out by new students.

The timing is flexible – either at beginning of the day (walk your kids to school and stay for a bit) or at the end of the day (come early and get a good parking spot). Most volunteers come in weekly – but we are very flexible with schedules!

If you’d like more information, please email Ms. Brauweiler directly – she’d love to talk with you!

8/12 Lincoln Log – Back to School Information

Lincoln School Families,

Welcome back to Lincoln! I hope this message finds you enjoying every moment of these fading summer days. It’s hard to believe in less than two weeks your kids will return to Lincoln once again and bring our Fine, Fine School back to life. Like every summer, this one seemed to go by exceptionally fast. As the summer days draw to a close, I am hopeful that you and your family are able to capitalize on some quality time together before the school year kicks off. On behalf of everyone here at Lincoln School, we are anxious to welcome your family for the excitement of the first day of school on Thursday, August 23rd.

On Tuesday afternoon, August 14, your child’s 2018-19 class assignment will be emailed to your family’s primary email address.  Please keep in mind that hours of preparation, discussion, and perhaps a few sleepless nights go into the creation of class lists and the various other intricacies of preparing for the start of school. The overall objective when creating these lists is to ensure that all students are placed in the best possible learning environment to meet their social, emotional, and academic needs. The input so many of you provided about your children in the spring was helpful in this time-consuming process.

In addition to 50 new kindergartners and over 30 new families, we are also excited to welcome several new staff members to the Lincoln family this year:

  • 1st Grade- Ms. Kristin Bailitz
  • 2nd Grade- Mr. Tristan Rogers
  • PE- Mr. Jonathan Augustine
  • Support Staff- Ms. Theresa DuBois
  • Support Staff- Ms. Jill Kopecky

I know you will find them to be amazing assets to our already Fine, Fine Faculty!  Below is a breakdown of grade level teaching assignments for 2018-19:

The beginning of a new school year always brings with it great excitement and optimism.  There is something infectious about a clean school, new clothes, new faces, and the energy surrounding the beginning of a new year. Through positive collaboration and open channels of communication, we can carry this same excitement through the entire school year.  Please know that my door is always open and welcoming of your feedback and support.

I couldn’t be more excited to embark upon year four with the staff, kids, and families at our Fine, Fine School!

Please tell your kids Mr. Davis and I say hello and can’t wait to see them soon!

All my best – CG

6/3 Lincoln Log

 

Lincoln Families,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Friday’s Ice Cream Social was an incredible way to celebrate the 2017-18 school year. Many thanks to our Fine Fine PTO, Ice Cream Social Committee and our Yearbook Committee for hosting such a wonderful evening and creating one of the best Lincoln School yearbooks yet!

For all practical purposes….I suppose it’s safe to say… we’ve made it. The next four days will be over before we know it! The excitement of summer, sun, vacations and rejuvenation are met with mixed emotions as I walk the halls and bit by bit watch student work, art and projects disappear and the walls once again become a blank canvas awaiting the new stories, experiences and memories the next year will bring.

It has truly been another incredible year at Lincoln! There is so much to celebrate and be proud of as we prepare to put the finishing touches on the year. I look forward to celebrating all your kid’s hard work and accomplishments at Field Day on Friday! Here again is the run down for Friday’s events:

I am beyond humbled by the support, kindness and encouragement each of you continue to show the entire faculty and staff at Lincoln. Your children are amazing and I’ve enjoyed being a small part of their journey this year. There are so many things that make Lincoln the best school around and the character of our kids is atop the list! I am already excited for their return in August!

Don’t forget, this week we will celebrate July Principal Birthday Lunch on Tuesday.

As always, please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can help with. Contrary to popular belief, principals still work in the summer, so please let me know if there is anything I can do for your family. I wish you and your family a safe, relaxing and rejuvenating summer full of wonderful new memories.

Signing off for 2017-18!

Important messages from your School Nurse

Image result for nurse cross

Please remember during cold and flu season to keep your child home if they are sick. If they have a fever they need to be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication before they can return to school. If they are vomiting and/or have diarrhea, make sure it has been at least 24 hours since the last episode before returning to school. If your child has an excessively runny nose or cannot stop coughing, it may be a good idea to keep them home. This is to protect your child from catching something if their immune system is down, as well as to protect the other students and staff. Thank you for doing your part to keep everyone at Lincoln School healthy.
