6/2 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

I hope you had a great weekend.

Many thanks to Jennifer Moore, Nikki Elza and everyone who helped make the 2019 Lincoln School Ice Cream Social the best one yet! The weather was perfect and the attendance might have broken some records! It was an incredible evening and wonderful way to celebrate the 2018-19 school year and kick off the final eight days of school.

The highlight of the Ice Cream Social is always the distribution of the annual Lincoln School yearbook. As always, this year’s memory book is a labor of love and is the result of hundreds of hours of volunteerism. Without the volunteer efforts of Monika Block, Becky Williams and their team, this years book would not have been possible! Please consider volunteering to support the development of the 2019-20 yearbook committee.

The excitement continues to mount as we approach our annual last day of school festivities. Please see the information below for the specifics:

As always, thank you for your continued support of our Fine Fine School! Please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do to better support your family. Enjoy these final eight days of the school year!

 Walking Club – this WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY

To achieve our goal, Walking Club will meet on Wednesday and Friday. Bring your siblings, parents, grandparents, neighbors. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate so we can collectively achieve our walking goal to Wisconsin.

Wed and Friday 8:00-8:15 on the Franklin side.

Walking club is cancelled if it is raining or the fields are too wet to walk.
Please contact Sangeetha (Sangs50@gmail.com) if you can volunteer any one of these days. Your help is much appreciated.

Library Lowdown

A HUGE thank you to all of the library volunteers who tirelessly shelve the books so they are always ready for the next student to read. You were a small but mighty team of 5. You shelved over 30,000 books this year! We could not do all of the library programs we do if we did not have your help in the library. Thank you so much to Stacy Austin, Kathryn Jandeska, Jeannine Steiner, Sara Yu, and Anne Ganschow.

Thank you as well to Anne Powers and Sarah Donoho and the rest of the book fair volunteers for all your work on the book fairs. Your help is truly appreciated.

2019-20 registration – don’t delay!

Registration for the 2019-20 school year is now open. In order to improve our online registration process, District 90 is now partnering with the Ecollect/Accela School Adaptive Data Management System. Ecollect is a data collection system that resides within PowerSchool, which is the District’s student information management system. All District 90 registration forms are now embedded within the Ecollect system and will be accessible to you via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Once you open your PowerSchool Parent Portal, all of the required registration forms will be available on the left-hand navigation bar.

Don’t have a PowerSchool account? No problem! We have created two documents to help – these documents can be found on our website on our registration page, and they will also be sent to you in a separate email from the district.
