Landon's Helping Paws

We are excited to share with you an announcement that has just been formalized! You may recall it's original Press Release in the Lincoln County Journal this past July. We plan to discuss this opportunity in more detail on Monday during our staff meeting as well. At that time, I will share with you a little more about our timeline and plans to integrate Annie into our school community! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Good afternoon Boone Elementary and Lincoln Elementary Parents and Students,

Ms. Annie is finally here. We are excited to inform you, in a collaborative effort between Landon’s Helping Paws, Bright Futures Lincoln County, and the Lincoln County R-III School District. Landon’s Helping Paws will be providing a facility (service) dog to visit and work with the students and staff of both schools. Landon’s Helping Paws has chosen your two very special schools because of the amount of children she will be able to help every single day. Ms. Annie will be chaperoned by two of our specially trained Landon’s Helping Paws Volunteers. Our volunteers will work as a team with the Principals, Teachers, and Counselors of both schools to develop a customized approach for the needs of their student bodies.

What will Ms. Annie be doing?

· Annie will be a friend to every single student. Helping to greet them in the morning and in the hallways. Ms. Annie will be participating in activities such as Character Council, Reading Circle, rewards and recognition, and service projects.

· Annie will be assisting with Social Skills (facilitating social interaction).

· Annie has the capability to assist with Occupational and Physical Therapy.

· Attend Counseling Sessions with individuals and classrooms.

· Annie is so amazing she has even been trained to assist any individual with a disability including physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or mental disability.

Toys for Tots

The Lincoln County Marine Corps League is partnering with businesses and schools in our community to bring joy and toys to families in need this holiday season. Lincoln Elementary is proud to announce our participation in this partnership. It is important to know that 100% of the donations and proceeds will directly benefit children in our own community and even our school. We are seeking donations of new toys for boys and girls ages 0-12 years old. Please consider joining us in this outreach opportunity by donating new toys, gift cards or cash donations to the Lincoln Office throughout the month of November. We ask that all gift card or cash donations be delivered directly to the office for security purposes. We thank you in advance for your support in bringing some holiday cheer to those who may need it most! #proud2bleopards

A thought for the week...
