Back to School Countdown: 8/19 Lincoln Newsletter

On your marks, get set, go! Just 7 days until Lincoln School is back in session!

The first day of School, Monday 8/26, is a full day.  If you ordered a school supply pack last Spring, your child’s school supplies will be delivered to his or her classroom and placed on their seat for the first day.

The PTO Web Store will be open for business beginning Monday 8/19.   Use the Web Store to sign up for all PTO sponsored programs and events. To use the PTO Web Store, you’ll need your child’s District 90 ID as well as your Revtrack email and password. If you’ve forgotten your child’s ID number, please refer to the registration email you were sent earlier this summer or contact the district at 708-771-8282. If you’ve forgotten your Revtrack password, follow directions on the PTO website to have it reset.

PTO programs with early sign-up deadlines: Fun Lunch and FLIP.

Fun Lunch is a hot lunch offered every Friday.  Menus rotate between pizza, pasta, chicken tenders and sub sandwiches.  This lunch program is the PTO’s largest fundraiser.  You can only sign up for Fun Lunch twice a year: now and before the January term.  See pricing and more details on the PTO Web Store.  Deadline to sign up for Fun Lunch is Friday, August 30th at Midnight.

The first Fun Lunch is this Friday 8/30 and it’s a FREE PIZZA lunch.  Students will receive 1 slice of Domino’s cheese pizza, so parents, please pack extra food for hungry kids!

FLIP is the Foreign Language Introductory Program.  The PTO provides 4 extra curricular languages:  Spanish, French, Italian and Chinese.  Classes are once a week, before school, after school, or during the lunch hour.  See specifics about classes and times on the PTO Web Store.  FLIP classes begin on Tuesday Sept. 10th. Deadline to sign up is Friday, Sept. 6th.

Looking Forward to Another Great Lincoln Year

We are busy updating this site with calendar information for the 2013-14 school year!

New Lincoln families can subscribe at any time to the PTO weekly newsletter (see subscription box to your right) to receive information about PTO-sponsored events and extra-curricular activities.

The PTO Web Store will open on Monday, August 19th. 

Student ID numbers are required to register with the PTO Web Store!  Returning students keep the same ID numbers. All kindergarten and new Lincoln students will be receiving a PTO welcome mailer the week before school starts; this mailer and all District paperwork includes the 5-digit ID number. Contact the District 90 office with any questions about student ID numbers.

NOTE: The same student ID number is used for District 90 transactions AND to purchase items on PTO Web Store, but you may have different passwords.
