Happy Halloween!

Reminder: Due to the wet weather, our Halloween parade will not be outside this year! Parents who would like to see the parade may come into the building and go to the auditorium first, and if the seats are filled, parents can go to the gym. The children will parade through the auditorium first, and then into the gym. They will then go right back to their classrooms.

Remember! There is early dismissal at 11:25 today!

Trick-or-Treat hours in River Forest are 3:00pm – 7:00pm.

A special thank you to all of the attendees, Superintendent Condon, Principal Hyde, Lincoln staff, parent and 4th Grade volunteers that were a part of a very fun and successful Pancake Breakfast last Saturday!
