6/3 Lincoln Log


Lincoln Families,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Friday’s Ice Cream Social was an incredible way to celebrate the 2017-18 school year. Many thanks to our Fine Fine PTO, Ice Cream Social Committee and our Yearbook Committee for hosting such a wonderful evening and creating one of the best Lincoln School yearbooks yet!

For all practical purposes….I suppose it’s safe to say… we’ve made it. The next four days will be over before we know it! The excitement of summer, sun, vacations and rejuvenation are met with mixed emotions as I walk the halls and bit by bit watch student work, art and projects disappear and the walls once again become a blank canvas awaiting the new stories, experiences and memories the next year will bring.

It has truly been another incredible year at Lincoln! There is so much to celebrate and be proud of as we prepare to put the finishing touches on the year. I look forward to celebrating all your kid’s hard work and accomplishments at Field Day on Friday! Here again is the run down for Friday’s events:

I am beyond humbled by the support, kindness and encouragement each of you continue to show the entire faculty and staff at Lincoln. Your children are amazing and I’ve enjoyed being a small part of their journey this year. There are so many things that make Lincoln the best school around and the character of our kids is atop the list! I am already excited for their return in August!

Don’t forget, this week we will celebrate July Principal Birthday Lunch on Tuesday.

As always, please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can help with. Contrary to popular belief, principals still work in the summer, so please let me know if there is anything I can do for your family. I wish you and your family a safe, relaxing and rejuvenating summer full of wonderful new memories.

Lincoln Field Day will take place on the last day of school, Friday, June 8, starting at 11:00amIt’s a fun afternoon that kicks off with a family picnic on the Lincoln playground. 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.

Here is the schedule:

  • 11-11:35am: Family picnic, 1st-4th, Franklin playground
  • 11:35-12:00pm: 4th grade maypole and drumming performance
  • 12-2pm: Field Day, 1st-4th
  • 2:25pm: 4th grade clap-out, Franklin entrance
  • 2:30pm: Dismissal

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 Thursday, June 7 or Friday, June 8.  Thank you for your support.

Join the 2018/2019 PTO team!

There are still PTO positions available for the 2018-2019 school year – please contact Suzanne D’Agostino (suzanne.dagostino@gmail.com) or Amy Prestes (amy.prestes@gmail.com) if you’d like to get involved.  Areas where help is needed:

  • Yearbook committee members
  • Pancake 5K committee members
  • Fun Lunch co-chair
  • Authors and Assemblies co-chair

The mission of the PTO is to support and enhance the education of the children at Lincoln School. But without input, ideas and support from the families at Lincoln, fulfilling this mission is not possible. There is a lot you can do for the PTO and for Lincoln School whether you are a working parent or a stay at home parent. Volunteer opportunities are available for events taking place at school during the week or on weekends. And opportunities are available for you to work from the comfort of your own home while younger children nap.  Thank you for your continued support of the Lincoln PTO!
