Dear Lincoln Families,
I love February! There are so many great things about this month that make it so special. February is the month of love and February is a time for magical learning in the classroom when our students begin to hit their stride and find their SPARKS!
Have a wonderful weekend! I'm still hoping for some more snow. Who's with me? :)
