10/27 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! How is it possible that by week’s end it will be November!
It was so great to see so many of you on Saturday at our annual Pancake Breakfast and 5K. Many thanks to Anthony Kramer and his army of volunteers for executing yet another Fine, Fine Pancake Breakfast and 5K. Also, many thanks to Ann Gall, Melinda Peterson and Pam Wynne  for their leadership with Hero Boys. It was great to see the Willard and Lincoln School Hero Boys unite to run in the 5K on Saturday.

Over the past several weeks, there has been an increase of students arriving to school before 8:05 and unsupervised on both the Park and Franklin areas of the school. Please remember staff supervision is between 8:05-8:20 in the morning and 3:10-3:25 in the afternoon. For student safety purposes, please be sure your child arrives to school 8:05am or later each morning and is picked up by 3:25pm in the afternoon.
The next few weeks are busy ones around our Fine Fine School.

Don’t forget that Fall Parties are this Thursday. If you haven’t yet done so, please be sure to fill out the attached Google Form indicating your child’s plans for Oct. 31.  Below is the schedule for the last day of October.

Veterans Day is always one of my favorite days at Lincoln. Coming together as a school community to honor our veterans is always such a moving and inspirational day. This year, our assembly will be at 9:00am on Monday, November 11. Please be sure to take the time to see the attached Veterans Day Hero form to honor a veteran in our Hall of Honor and to also let us know if you will be inviting a veteran guest to join us.

10/6 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. The Godfrey’s enjoyed a nice weekend in St. Louis surprising my dad for his 70th birthday! The celebration was made even better with the return of playoff baseball to St. Louis!

Hold on tight…… October looks to be a busy and exciting month at our Fine Fine School. Walk to School week, Family Math Night, Author visits, Fall Parties and the Pancake Breakfast/5K are just a few of the events to make note of this month!

Many thanks to the Green 4 Good Kids Club and sponsors for their support of Walk to School Week. Despite the roller coaster of temperatures it was SO impressive to see so many kids walking and biking to school last week.

As you know last week Mr. Danno retired as our building engineer. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Quincy on assuming the position as our new Building Engineer. Monday will mark his first official day in this new capacity. Mr.Quincy should be a familiar face to many. He has worked for sixteen years as a member of the night crew here at Lincoln. If you see him around please congratulate him on his new position.

It is hard to believe that Fall Family Conferences are less than a month away (November 6 and 7). This week you will be receiving a communication from D90 alerting you that sign-up for conferences will open on Thursday, October 10.

Our annual Fall Parties and Character Parade are quickly approaching. Please be sure to mark your calendar. Dates and times below.

  • 8:30 AM Kindergarten Character Parade (Park Ave. Playground)
  • 8:45 K-2 Storyteller Assembly in the Auditorium
  • 9:30 3-4 Storyteller Assembly in the Auditorium
  • 12:40 1st-4th Grade Character Parade (Franklin Playground)
  • Afternoon Classroom Parties

Over the past five years our Veterans Day recognition ceremony has continued to grow! This year we are preparing yet another moving celebration to honor the Veterans of our community and families. Therefore please see the attached flier regarding this years assembly scheduled for Monday, November 11 at 9:00 in the Lincoln School Gym. Please see this form for more details.

In planning for this week, don’t forget there will be no school on Wednesday, October 9 in observance of Yom Kippur!

As always, thanks for all of your support of our Fine Fine School. Please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything Ms. Gerges and I can do to better support your family. Have a great week.

Recess Lunch Support Needed 10/16

As you can imagine the school day’s are often so busy that weeks can pass without the opportunity for us to gather as a faculty. Therefore..to remedy that…..Each trimester this school year, the entire Lincoln School staff is planning to come together for lunch to show and acknowledge our appreciation for one another. To do so, we are soliciting volunteers who would be willing to spend time assisting and lunch and recess duty on that day. The first day we need support for is Wednesday. October 16. Please us the Sing-up-Genius link below if you are willing to help. Thanks for considering.
