Dear Lincoln Families,
 
The Pier-to-Pier Skechers Walk is around the corner on Sunday, October 27. Pier-to-Pier Skechers Walk is a community event to support children with special needs and local schools. It is also a direct fundraiser to Lincoln Elementary. So far...we have 100 walkers! 300 to go...CLICK HERE to register today!
 
The Pier-to-Pier Fundraiser for schools is participant-based. The more participants who register ($30 entry fee), the more dollars raised directly for our school. Most importantly, RBEF will match dollars with the RBUSD elementary schools who have the most participants. Last year, Lincoln Elementary had 375 walkers (previous 17-18 year was 275) and earned $20,000 directly to Lincoln Elementary...this money was utilized to purchase Eureka Math Manipulative Kits, instructional materials and other supports that benefit the classroom.
 
In prior years, Dr. J was slimed in his dress clothes and rollerbladed an entire school day without knowing how after Lincoln Elementary achieved their walker goals. This year, Dr. J has challenged Lincoln to raise 400 walkers for the event...if we make it, he will suffer the Student Vote Challenge where he will submit himself to a challenge chosen and voted on by students!
 
Be sure to register as many walkers as you can...every walker counts! Register each member of your family, register grandma, register your dog, and your neighbor's dog. They all count! Can't make the event? NO PROBLEM! Be a virtual walker and register anyway. CLICK HERE to register walkers with the Lincoln Elementary team. See attachment for more details.
