5/9 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible Lincoln School Moms. I hope you had a wonderful weekend with your family. 

On behalf of the entire Lincoln School staff, thank you for all the kind messages, gestures, and tokens of appreciation during our celebration of Staff Appreciation last week. Each of those gestures, no matter how small, truly made our staff feel appreciated. Special thanks to the Lincoln School PTO for all of their extraordinary efforts in making our teacher and staff feel loved!


Registration is now open for the 2021-22 academic year. Please see the message and links below from Dawne Simmons regarding registration for the coming school year. Also, please pass this information along to families who might have unenrolled in D90 over the past year. 

Additionally, kindergarten registration is also ongoing. If you have a child who will turn 5 on or before September 1, 2021, please don’t forget to register! Our kindergarten teachers are currency scheduling kindergarten screening assessments for all registered students. Don’t forget to register as soon as possible so that your child can participate in this informational screening.

Finally, as referenced in Dr. Condon’s weekly update to the community, don’t forget to adjust your calendar. There will be no student attendance on Friday, May 28.

As always, thanks for your continued support of Lincoln. Please reach out if there is anything more I can do to support your family.

Have a great week. CG

I hope you enjoyed reading Bob with your family. The students were able to participate in some fun activities as well such as trivia, drawing Bob, making a time capsule, and voting for some of Bob’s favorite things. Please be sure to turn in your family bookmark to be entered into the family raffle for a prize by tomorrow.

One last exciting announcement is that the authors, Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead, will be virtually visiting with Lincoln on May 13th. We’re excited to meet the authors of Bob and hear all about writing this terrific book.

Social Emotional Learning

May is Mental Health Awareness Month – did you know:

  • 1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year, but less than half get treatment
  • 1 in 20 U.S. adults experiences a serious mental illness each year, but less than two-thirds get treatment.*
  • 1 in 6 U.S. youth experience a mental health condition each year, but only half get treatment.
  • The average delay between onset of mental illness symptoms and treatment is 11 years. 
  • 55% of U.S. counties do not have a single practicing psychiatrist.*

Did you also know, you’re not alone! Let’s raise awareness about the importance of taking care of our mental health and stomping out the stigma!
