Good morning!

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a restful break. We have a few announcements we wanted to make you aware of as we start the week.

  • Picture Retake Day is this Thursday, October 19th. This will happen in the morning. Students or parents can pick up a form in the main office.
  • High Ability Testing starts this week for 3rd and 6th grade students.

    Join the Linden Project and our community partners: CSA Lincoln PTO, Kidscommons, QMix, Oh Sweetie's Handcrafted Treats, Columbus Fire Department, Viewpoint Books, and CRH Healthy Communities for community play date this Sunday here on CSA Lincoln's current playground. The event will be Sunday, October 22 from 12 PM- 2 PM.

CSA Choir Carwash

Has someone written "Wash Me" on your car? Have you parked under the bird's favorite tree? Did you drive by someone getting mud all over your car? Well, worry no more. The CSA Choir is selling e-washes for Crew Carwash during the entire month of October. You can buy as many as you want, and they never expire, so buy 12 so you can treat your car to a carwash each month. Half of the proceeds goes directly to the CSA Choir, so buying a $16 Works carwash gives the choir $8 or a regular carwash at $9 gives the choir $4.50. With Christmas coming up, buy carwashes for family and friends. The e-washes are good at all Crew Carwashes, so if you know someone in another city where there is a Crew Carwash, they are able to use them. Help support the CSA Choir by purchasing e-washes through Crew Carwash. Simply go to the following website starting on Sunday through the end of October:
