Dear Lincoln Families,

This is the LAST WEEK for the Pier-to-Pier Fundraiser on Sunday, October 28! This raises money directly to Lincoln Elementary based on the number of participants. CLICK HERE to register walkers with the Lincoln Elementary Team! We currently have 160 walkers!

Our southern rival Tulita is currently beating us with 190 walkers...they have been using "Beat Lincoln," as motivation! Here is a short video from our fearless RBEF leader Stephane to get us motivated in a very Stephane kind of way...CLICK HERE!

If we make 375 walkers, Mr. J will suffer the Roller blade Challenge where he will have to principal the school while on roller blades for the entire school day! And let me tell you, that man does NOT know how to roller blade. Can't make the event? NO PROBLEM! Be a virtual walker and register anyway. CLICK HERE to register walkers with the Lincoln Elementary team. Also, this week our students will receive a special video announcement from their principal about Pier-to-Pier...CLICK HERE to watch Mr. J present on the Roller blade Challenge.

The PTA Membership Drive continues! This year's theme is Make a Splash with PTA and to do so, we need your membership. Lincoln aims to achieve 100% membership two years in a row (last year was the first time in our history). Currently, we are at 635 members...if we reach 650 then every student at Lincoln will get to pelt Mr. J with a water balloon. Almost there! CLICK HERE to join today!
 
WATCH D.O.G.S. is an innovative program being used by Lincoln and schools across America which helps us to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in our students’ lives. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day to be a positive male role model at Lincoln.Watch Dogs Night Kickoff will be on Thursday, October 25 @ 5:30PM in the cafeteria. Dads...come on down, have FREE pizza with your kids, and then stick around for a quick presentation at 6PM. Childcare will be provided during the presentation. We had a HUGE turnout last year...come on Dads...let's do it again this year! CLICK HERE to RSVP for our pizza order...
