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.

End of Year PTO Volunteer Party!

Pictures Needed for Commemorative 4th Grade Video

A video will be shown at the 4th grade breakfast on the morning of June 8. The video will contain photos of the 4th graders and their years at Lincoln school. It is important that all those that would like to be included in the video are included in the video, and we need your help to do this. Please send in photos of your child from 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… Please refrain from sending photos from birthday parties, holidays or other religious events.

We have set up a drop box to collect these photos. Click here for the drop box location as well as for instructions on how to upload your pictures. You are free to use the Drop Box website or app, whichever is easiest for you. Please submit all photos ASAP!

Crossing Guard Donations at the Ice Cream Social

Our school community started a wonderful tradition a few years ago.  We collect for end-of-the-year monetary gifts for our hard-working and friendly crossing guards, Moana and Paulette.  Parents will be collecting before and after school on Wednesday and Thursday on Park and Franklin. And there will also be a donation jar at the ice cream social. Every donation is appreciated.  Thank you!

School Supplies Donations


Another end-of-the-year tradition at Lincoln:  The Green4Good Committee collects our gently used school supplies and donates them to the Maywood School District.  If you DO NOT wish for your child’s supplies to be donated, please email Laura Maychruk (lmaychruk AT comcast.net).  Please indicate your child’s name, grade and teacher’s name.  Otherwise all supplies will be collected at the end of classes on either Wednesday, June 7, or Thursday, June 8.  Thank you for your support.
