5/12 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible Lincoln School Moms! I hope your day was full of love, smiles and time spent with your family! With only four Mondays remaining in the school year, things are busier than ever around Lincoln!

On Tuesday, we will celebrate School Nurses Day with a celebration of the one and only Mrs. Godellas. If you have a moment, please take some time to jot her a note of appreciation for all she does. She is truly the Best of the Best!

On behalf of everyone at Lincoln, thank you so much for all the love and kindness you bestowed upon our amazing staff last week for Staff Appreciation Week. All the simple acts of kindness mean so much to each of us. We are so grateful for your support.

This week we will officially complete our formal assessment window of the year with the administration of the NWEA MAP assessment to all 2nd -4th graders. Below is our testing schedule for the week.

It’s hard to believe our annual Field Day celebration is only a few weeks away. So you can begin planning for all the last day of school festivities, here is the schedule we will follow on Wednesday, June 12.

Finally, please take a moment to participate in the D90 Inclusivity Advisory Board survey. PARENT/FAMILY SURVEY LINK

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

Commemorative video for 4th graders: pictures needed by May 15th

A video will be shown at the 4th grade breakfast on the morning of the last day of school, June 12th. The video will contain pictures of the 4th graders through their years at Lincoln School. So grab a box of tissues and scroll through your old photos. Please begin to gather a variety of photos of your child commemorating all of their years at Lincoln, grades K through 4. We suggest photos from school events, school concerts, class parties, field trips, PTO events, back to school pictures, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, other clubs, youth sports teams, pictures with good Lincoln buddies, etc.

Photos can be submitted to a google drive via https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Br8wAPodrOwDK0IUThraRsnGsFNttUMu?usp=sharing or emailed to Lincoln4thgradeclass@gmail.com. We want to ensure that everyone is included so in the body of the email please include child’s name, grade / teacher at the time pic was taken. We cannot use pictures from non-school events, no matter how cute. New families to fourth grade – there’s still time to take pics!  Example: Zoo field trip, 1st grade. DEADLINE TO SUBMIT PICTURES IS MAY 15!
