5/21 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

I hope you had a good weekend.  It’s hard to believe there are only two more Mondays left in the school year.

Congratulations to our Girls on The Run Team who completed their 2nd annual 5K over the weekend. Many thanks to Kristin Bailitz and all the other volunteers who supported this program and most importantly supported our girls in their quest to complete the 5K.

Don’t forget Friday, May 26 is an early release. Students will be dismissed at 11:25 AM. Additionally, don’t forget that PM Kindergarten students will attend in the morning. There will be no AM Kindergarten on Friday.

Our 2nd graders will finish up their Spring NWEA MAP assessments this week. Student MAP reports for 2nd-4th will be sent home with report cards on the last day of school.

Field Day Information – JUNE 8

Lincoln Field Day will take place on the last day of school, Thursday, June 8. It’s a fun afternoon that kicks off with a family picnic on the Lincoln playground at 11:25. Parents bring a blanket and a picnic lunch for their family. Although many parents attend, kids sit in class groups and will not feel left out if a parent cannot be there.  Specific spots are mapped out for each classroom on the Franklin Lawn.

The Fourth Grade Maypole and Drumming presentation is immediately after lunch.  Then it’s time for the games! Parents are welcome to stay and help run the games, or can collect their kids at the end of the school day.
