11/24 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m hopeful that as you gather with friends and family this coming week that our Fine Fine School is among the many things upon your gratitude list! I know that as the Godfreys gather this week in St. Louis that Lincoln will be high atop my list of things I’m thankful for.  Whether you are traveling or hosting, I hope this holiday is full of great memories for your family!

This week, I’m very excited to share with you the final products of both the Lincoln News Crew and the Life @ Lincoln News Broadcast teams.

The Lincoln News Crew is excited to share the very first edition of “The Lincoln Times”. Many thanks to Liz Condon and Kasey Butkus for their leadership in assisting our kids in covering the happenings at Lincoln.

Additionally, The Life @ Lincoln broadcast team has also put the finishing touches on their first broadcast of the 2019-20 school year. This group, led by Ms. Clasky and Mr. Cheney, meets weekly during lunch to record and report the news at Lincoln. For your viewing pleasure here is: Life @ Lincoln: https://vimeo.com/373211261

Finally don’t forget to “Save the Date,” for our annual Winter Program on Friday, December 20. Here are the performance times for this years program:

Grade 1- 9:45am
Grade 2 – 10:30am
Grade 3 – 1:00pm
Grade 4 – 1:45pm
Dismissal – 2:30pm

As always, thank you for your continued support of Lincoln. Please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything more we can do to support your kids and your family. Have a great week.

Happy Thanksgiving! CG
