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.

Join the 2018/2019 PTO team!

There are still PTO positions available for the 2018-2019 school year – please contact Suzanne D’Agostino (suzanne.dagostino@gmail.com) or Amy Prestes (amy.prestes@gmail.com) if you’d like to get involved.  Areas where help is needed:

  • Math Night coordinators
  • Yearbook committee members
  • Picture Day Coordinator
  • Principal Birthday Lunch co-chair
  • Fun Lunch co-chair

The mission of the PTO is to support and enhance the education of the children at Lincoln School. But without input, ideas and support from the families at Lincoln, fulfilling this mission is not possible. There is a lot you can do for the PTO and for Lincoln School whether you are a working parent or a stay at home parent. Volunteer opportunities are available for events taking place at school during the week or on weekends. And opportunities are available for you to work from the comfort of your own home while younger children nap.  Thank you for your continued support of the Lincoln PTO!


Important messages from your School Nurse

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.
