Dear Lincoln Families,
Welcome back for a restful Thanksgiving Break. Please take a moment see a separate email from me about report cards and conferences. Thanks!
If you have not heard, in a landslide vote, Dr. J will suffer worms poured on top of him for the Student Vote Challenge. This will take place at the Town Hall Assembly on Tuesday, January 21. So much to look forward to in the New Year!

Attendance matters. Did you know if your child misses 10% of school or more they are considered chronically absent? With 60 days into school, that is 6 absences or more. Please take a moment to review how many absences your child has for the school year...they add up and affect their academic progress.

There are great resources and speaker series available through our partnership with Beach Cities Health District (BCHD). I strongly recommend taking a look at their calendar by CLICKING HERE.

Gear up for Winter Wonder Week on December 16 - December 20. See attachment to know how to keep up with the fun.
3rd and 4th Grade Music Concerts save the date on Thursday, December 19. See attached for details.

4th and 5th Grade Battle of the Books' list is up! This year, there is a minimum of 15 books to be read in order to participate. Any students who read all 36 books will be recognized at the district level. All books are available in the library and can be checked out. Students DO NOT NEED to read all 15 books by December but by April 1 for the Battle. See attached for details.

This week we will be on parent conference schedule with minimum days until Tuesday, December 10. Grades 1-5 will be dismissed at 1:35PM.

Kinder parents...please note that the upcoming parent conference dates on December 2 through December 10 will be "Wacky Wednesday" schedule and all students will attend from 8:00-11:20AM.

Dr. J needs some volunteers to support our Leveled Literacy Intervention library! Any help would be greatly appreciated...it is a sorting/organizing job that will benefit all our teachers and students. If you have availability in the coming Dec weeks to support for an hour or two, please reach out to Ms. Kelly @ mkelly@rbusd.org. All support would be greatly appreciated on this effort.

Running Club students ran a total of 377 miles last week! The kids have run the distance from school to Long Island, New York! The Running Club takes place every morning before school from 7:50 until 8:08 on the primary playground. All students in grades 1-5 are welcome to come run laps and earn cool prizes!
