Dear Lincoln Families,
This week is the worming at Town Hall Assembly! Be sure to ask your child how miserable Dr. J and Lincoln President Kate Brucia looked as the worms were dumped on them by Student Leadership. Thank you community for supporting the Pier-to-Pier Fundraiser for Lincoln Elementary and the Student Leadership California Wildfire Relief Drive.
 
PTA Jog-a-thon! It's our biggest fundraiser of the year. Jog-a-thon 2020 is coming Wednesday, January 29th! Lincoln PTA is hoping to raise $30,000 this year to fund field trips and assemblies for each grade! If every student raises just $50, we will hit our goal with ease AND Dr J will get duct taped to a wall by the top five fundraising students! One inch of tape for every dollar collected. Can we do it? Please CLICK HERE to make a donation or to create your students fundraising page. To see where your PTA donations go, check out the attached flyer "Why We Fundraise." If you would like to volunteer to help out at this fun event, please CLICK HERE.
 
Save the Date on Wednesday, March 18 @ 5:30PM! Katie Hurley, author of No More Mean Girls, therapist and frequent speaker in the South Bay will be coming to Lincoln to present about supporting your child with peer-to-peer relationships, especially as they are about to head off to middle school. She comes HIGHLY recommended by RBUSD educators and Redondo Beach parents. This event should not be missed and I strongly encourage your attendance.
 
Attendance! Attendance! Did you know a child's attendance has been demonstrated to correlate with their reading scores? Well, now you know. Get your kid to school...unless their sick.
PowerSchool has gone mobile! If you are interested in putting our student information system on your phone, please see attached directions.

We love our events at Lincoln, but it takes a village to make them all happen. Dr. Seuss Night is in jeopardy of not happening this year because it needs an event chair. Can you help? CLICK HERE to see the responsibilities.

We have partnered with Jersey Mike's in the King Harbor Plaza (near the high school) for their Grand Re-Opening. They will be handing out 2,500 free sub cards (1,000 will be given to our RBEF advocates so they can distribute accordingly) that asks for a minimum $2 donation to RBEF in exchange for the free sub. Also, during January 21st-26th anyone can donate to RBEF at this Jersey Mike's locaiton. All donations will be directly given to RBEF at the end of the campaign. See attached.
