Attention Fourth Grade Parents!

Get your Slideshow Pics Submitted!

It’s almost time for your little eagle to fly over to middle school (sniff, sniff), but before that happens, let’s embarrass them!
During the 4th grade breakfast, we will watch a video montage of your child’s years at Lincoln. Please submit any school photos from Kindergarten-4th Grade so we can reminisce about the fun times at our wonderful elementary school.

Photos can be emailed to vmfreund@sbcglobal.net (.jpeg & 300dpi if possible)
I’m also happy to accept DVDs, flash drives, floppy discs, reel to reels- whatever it takes to get your little one’s face on the big screen.
Feel free to drop off hardware in the mailbox at: 747 Franklin

Fourth Grade Activity Fees Due!

If you have not already, PLEASE go to the Lincoln PTO Webstore and pay your child’s 4th Grade Activity Fee. This fee goes toward the t-shirts that your 4th grader will wear during Field Day, the commemorative DVD of the kids’ time at Lincoln that all children receive, and the 4th Grade Breakfast on the last day of school.

These are exciting times for the 4th Graders so please keep reading the newsletters weekly for upcoming event info.

Also, the Maypole and Drumming takes place at Field Day – please ask your children what they would like to participate in this year. Sign ups will be out soon. Practices will start in late April and May.

Looking forward to a fun end of the year with everyone!!!!
