Lincoln Middle School
February 19, 2021
The snowfall and cold temperatures have been relentless. Thanks for hanging in there everyone! I appreciate school employees' efforts to keep at it this past week. Bus drivers, custodians, lunchroom staff, crossing guards, teachers and assistants, office and tech staff . . . you just keep on going! Families have been great, too. Thanks for your flexibility and your commitment to see through these stressful times, made even more challenging - mentally and physically - with the added too many inches of snow!
Please join me in welcoming Sarah Marzullo to the Lincoln staff. Sarah joins us as an Instructional Assistant and will start Monday morning.
Be well, be safe, and I will see you on picture day!

SUPPORT D57 FAMILIES IN NEED
COVID-19 has presented many unique hardships and challenges for some of our family members, friends and neighbors. Some parents have asked if it’s possible to make a financial donation to help support District 57 families who are currently in need. The District has set up a system to facilitate this for anyone who is interested. We will distribute the collected funds to families, based on formal requests that are made. If you would like to donate, simply go to this link and click “Make a one-time payment.” Fill in your student’s name, school and grade, and click “COVID-19 Donation to District 57 Families.” Fill in your information and donation amount, then proceed to the payment section. Thank you so much, in advance, for your kindness and generosity.
Those who are in need of support can fill out this online form. Names will only be seen by select District personnel who are distributing the funds. Thank you.
