Principal's Weekly E-Blast

See E-Blast for Live Links

Dear Lincoln Families, 

We hope you are enjoying the 3 day weekend and the great weather that has come along with it. Please take the time to read all of the information below. If you have a moment please read about RBEF, and take the time to make your contribution this weekend. We can get an additional $25,000!!!

RBEF:

We are TWO days away from the end of the annual RBEF Investor Drive "blitz" campaign. At the district level, we are at $347,553 right now, with a target of $700,000.

 

Thank you to the 64 Lincoln families who already donated to secure PE Teachers, Music teachers, Teacher grants, and so much more!

What can you do to help?

1) Consider donating! While the "ask" is $250 per student, the higher the participation numbers, regardless of the donation amounts, helps RBEF get corporate dollars donated. Your donations as parents will help RBEF secure corporate donations for support of the RBEF-funded enrichment programs. You can donate with monthly installments or you can do a pledge if this month is tough. Donate today at rbef.org or text RBEFLINC at 44-321. Help us raise $75,000 in the next 2 days and RBEF’s Business Partner CLEAR RECOVERY CENTER will make a $25,000.00 donation to RBEF!

2) You can support without money! Follow RBEF social media, and like, share, and/or comment on posts.

3) Contact lincoln@rbef.org for participating in a "We are Redondo" picture

 Have any question about RBEF or how to support?

Our Lincoln RBEF Advocates will host a Q&A Zoom on Monday 09/28 7:00-7:30 PM

Back2School Community Event:

Please see the attached flyer for a FREE event.  Please note that supplies are limited and children must be present for this drive-through event.

 

Child Nutrition Services:

I want to encourage all Lincoln families to apply for Free/Reduced Meal Status.  This application is essential in ensuring that students who qualify have access to daily healthy meals. I want to share that there are many other non-nutritional benefits students may receive from their participation in the national meal program. Some additional benefits include a significant reduction in the cost of AP Exams, SAT tests, college applications, and public bus passes to name a few. RBUSD Child Nutrition has already provided applications to families, but I want to encourage all Lincoln families to apply using this link: MealApplicationLink 

 

PTA EVENTS: 

The PTA would like to thank Kinecta and all the families that came out for the socially-distanced ice cream event this week! We hope you had a great time seeing all those friendly, masked, Lincoln faces! Join the PTA today to keep fun, family programs like this happening!

Looking for some Halloween, family-friendly fun? Join us on Friday, 10/23 for Lincoln Family Art Night: Halloween Edition! Sequoia Blue Arts will be hosting a Spooky Tissue Paper Lantern activity that is sure to be SPOOKTACULAR! Please see the attached flyer for registration and payment details.

MEMBERSHIP UPDATES - Join the PTA today
