Principal's Weekly E-Blast

Week of June 18, 2018 (See email for active links and attachments) 
Dear Lincoln Families,

Last week of school! Thank you Lincoln community for your support and dedication to making a successful 2017-2018 school year. I am grateful to be your principal and possess the opportunity to work with y(our) kids. This will be our final E-Blast newsletter until my welcome back letter in August 2018. For our 5th grade families saying goodbye to Lincoln...I wish you the best of luck in the next step in your child's education. While your kids will now be Eagles, they will always have the heart of Lions. Lincoln pride! 

A friendly reminder to re-register this summer with updated information, including address, phone number, and most importantly, emergency contacts. If someone other than yourselves picks up your child, please include them in contacts.

On Monday, K-4 students will receive their yearbook. If you think you ordered a book and do not receive it by Monday, please email lincolnrbphoto@gmail.com so we can resolve any missing books. We have a limited supply of extra books, so it will be first come, first served. If there are extra books left, on Wednesday, they will be sold outside of the kinder gate at 11:20AM.

Skip the hassle and order next year's school supplies online! This is our third year partnering with School Tool Box to provide our families the opportunity to purchase school supplies for your child's grade and have them delivered to your home. Boxes have been selected by the teachers are are fully customizable. Prace are competitive and a portion of the proceeds come back to PTA. Supplies are available for purchase through the summer but please allow 10 days processing to receive your order. Click HERE or on the Lincoln app and purchase your supplies today. 

Students will continue to have access to the math program TenMarks until July 30th. I strongly recommend that you continue to have your child practice math over the summer in preparation for our rigorous math curriculum Eureka next year. They are well-aligned. See attachment for parent letters and more information. 

Box Tops winners are here! Congratulations to Mr. Johnson's class...bringing in 400 box tops. The K-2 winner was Sean Koroglu from Ms. Dominelli's class and the 3-5 winner was Cole Kaden from Ms. Caywood's. We brought in almost $1,700 for our school this year. Special thank you to Candace Springer for her support to this program and the donation to our PTA. 
Time to clean out your classrooms, backpacks, and...wait, don't throw away those used and dried markers! Put them in a bag and bring them to the box in the front office to keep them from landfills. End the year doing something nice for the Earth. Colorcycle in the front office today! 

Does your child have extra Paw Prints? They can keep them over summer and redeem them next year. Students are responsible for their safe keeping.

Walking School Bus (WSB) and LiveWell Kids Lead Garden Docent are in need of a 18-19 coordinators for next year. It would be great to get these positions established before we end the school year. I can tell you they are essential to the health/wellness of Lincoln. If you are interested, please see attached job descriptions and send me an email. Thank you for your interest and support.

Lincoln PTA invites you to JOIN us on the lower playground for yearbook signing Monday, June 18th right after school. After pick-up, please bring your kiddos, yearbooks an pens to the lower playground where we will have some music and fun, and the kids can spend some time signing yearbooks together. The playground is open from 2:40 - 3:15PM. Please be sure your child is accounted for by Rec/CDC/parents prior to heading over. Gates close promptly at 3:15. This will be a fun opportunity to bond with friends and sign yearbooks or autograph books before school lets out for summer. 

In order to have a Lego League team for our 4th/5th grade students of 2018-2019, we need one to two parents to volunteer to be coaches. Lego League is great for those students interested in science, engineering, and teamwork. The competition consists of two areas: civic consciousness (last year the theme was water conservation) and robotics engineering. THe team is comprised of 8-10 dedicated students who practice once or twice a week in September-October depending on what the team chooses to do. If we have more students, then we can have multiple teams. Email me if you are interested in supporting this effort. 
Mr. J
