Peace Week January 23-27

The Lincoln Leopards and The Davis Tigers are PAW-sitively peaceful problem solvers! Davis Primary School and Lincoln Elementary School are partnering together to celebrate peace and focus on peaceful problem solving the week of January 23rd. Monday through Thursday we have guided lessons from the Davis and Lincoln social workers reviewing the steps of peaceful problem solving. Friday will culminate with a “Wear Blue” spirit day and morning craft to celebrate everything they have learned. We are SO excited to show our students that being PAW-sitively peaceful happens everywhere in our district!

Morning Drop Off Reminder

Please be sure to drop off your students before 8:00 a.m. to door 10 and door 21. When the school bell rings at 8:00, the teachers supervising those doors need to leave to attend their classes. Those doors will then be locked. If you arrive at 8:00 or later, please go to the office and sign in your child.

Watch DOGS Needed

We are grateful for all of the men who have volunteered on Fridays to spend lunch and recess with our students by being "Watch DOGS." However, there are many Fridays open during Feb, March and April that have no one signed up to volunteer. Please read over this information and sign up for WatchDOGS!! Men who have already volunteered this fall, are now welcome to sign up for a 2nd date HERE. THANK YOU!!

When your child is bored it can be a good thing.
