3/2 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

I hope you enjoyed yet another long weekend. With only fourteen school days remaining until Spring Break, it will be a busy few weeks around Lincoln.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to come engage in conversation with our teachers during Spring Conferences. While this is a formal opportunity to connect with teachers, please know your ongoing communication is essential and always welcome.

I look forward to celebrating our school with you on Friday, March 13 at our annual Lincoln School Auction. This is always such a fun evening to come together. If you haven’t already done so, please see the information below for tickets.

Finally, don’t forget to continue to spread the word about Kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year. Please encourage anyone you know with a kindergarten age child to register as soon as possible.

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

Looking for parent volunteers for 4th Grade Field Day activities

Our kids have excitedly been watching the “big kids” (aka – 4th graders) over the years entertain and kick off Field Day with Drumming and the Maypole Dance. Now it’s their turn to participate! Field Day is scheduled for the last day of school. Your 4th grader can choose to participate in the Maypole Dance and/or Drumming. Registration will occur after spring break. In the meantime, we are in need of parent volunteers to help guide and instruct the students in the Maypole Dance and drumming activities.  Please email Amy Dwyer (amyadwyer@gmail.com) or Gina Hardy (gfrioli@hotmail.com) if you are interested in leading the 4th graders in this wonderful Lincoln tradition.

Potential new PTO committee – gardening!

A Very Important Message from your School Nurse

Image result for nurse image red crossPlease 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. 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.

If you have any questions at all please contact our school nurse, Erin Godellas at godellase@district90.org or 708-366-7340 x 8034.
