Attention Parents of 3rd and 4th Graders !

Practice has started for this year’s Field Day Activities.  If you are a parent of a third grade student and plan on volunteering for Maypole and Drumming next year, we can use your help now.  You will learn the routine and be prepared for next year.  These are two exciting activities to culminate students’ last year at Lincoln.  For details, please email Cheryl Considine at “braceletsbycheryl AT hotmail.com.” 4th Graders–don’t miss your chance to shine on Field Day!  It’s not too late to sign up for Maypole and Drumming.  Contact Cheryl Considine to register  “braceletsbycheryl AT hotmail.com”   Hope to see you on Thursday!

Maypole:  Practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:45 in the morning.  (NO PRACTICE MAY 15 DUE TO CHORUS) Students will meet Mrs. Considine on the blacktop near the Franklin playground.

Drumming:  Practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the first half of the lunch period.  Students will meet Mrs. Bacom at the side door of the auditorium.

Attendance for practice is critical so that children are comfortable participating and have sufficient time to learn the routine.

The Lincoln PTO is looking for volunteers for the 2014/15 school year. We are fortunate to have a history of dedicated parents with diverse talents and interests on the PTO, and we need your ideas and expertise for next year. Regardless of your schedule, there are rewarding and time flexible PTO opportunities. Whether you can volunteer for a couple of hours or would like to chair a committee, we would love to have you help.  Many parents initially join the PTO when they are new to the community and find that it’s a great way to make lasting friendships while contributing to their children’s school.  Each year we begin with a new executive board and committee members and we promise you’ll have lots of fun as you help make Lincoln an outstanding place for students, teachers and families. If you are interested in chairing or participating in a PTO committee, we’d love to have your help.  You can email us at njselza@comcast.net  if you have any questions or want to talk in more detail about where the PTO could best use your time and talents. Nikki Elza & Gina Hardy
