Save the Date – Family Science Night on 3/19

Deep Down Family Science Night at Lincoln Elementary

Thursday March 19th,   7:00 – 8:00 pm


Cancel that tropical spring break trip.  Creatures of the sea are coming to the Lincoln gymnasium during Family Science Night.

Dear me, is that an anemone? Take the plunge – a real sponge! It doesn’t stink, look inside a squid and paint with its ink? Join this up-close experience with many more creatures of the deep and discover the scientist in YOU!

Appropriate for K – 4th grade

Sponsored by the Lincoln Elementary PTO.

Have you seen the cool Lincoln Spirit Wear on display in the office window?
