PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Dear Lincoln Parents and Guardians,


At the end of the year we coordinate Chromebook and charger, novel and textbook collection by grade level. Following is that schedule. Please be sure to send your child with their Chromebook AND charger, as well as any school textbook or novel on the appropriate date. This is a cumbersome task and we appreciate your cooperation and readiness to return these items.


Chromebook, Charger, Textbook and Novel Return Dates

  • Grade 8 - In-Person - May 25
  • Grades 6 and 7 - In-Person - May 28
  • ALL Remote students - June 2 - 8am - 3pm


I want to share a few graduation updates:

  • Gowns and pins were distributed to in-person students yesterday, May 13.
  • Remote students should pick up their gowns and pins in the front office.
  • There are NO caps with the gowns.
  • Please be sure to read further for more information from the PTO soon regarding the Picnic on May 26.


Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend,


Paul Suminski

Lincoln staff members sincerely appreciate the wonderful week of celebration provided by our PTO during Staff Appreciation Week! We are grateful for the opportunity to work with your families!!

From Mr. Suminski Reminds the Class of 2024:

Here is what's in the works for welcoming for our incoming 6th graders (the Class of 2024!):

  • Zoom session with Grade 5 students in the afternoon of May 17 (FV) and May 18 (LP).
  • Mr. Steen emailed the parent survey about World Languages (French/Spanish). If you did not receive that survey, please contact Mr. Steen (rsteen@d57.org).
  • Take a look at Ms. Howard's, Lincoln's French teacher, World Language Video here! If you already signed up for Spanish and think you'd like to try French instead, it's not too late! Just email Mr. Steen to let him know!
  • Tentative scheduling of brief in-person tours for the Class of 2024 over the summer.
  • Parent Open Forum Zoom session in June.

So watch for Class of 2024 emails in the future!
