Learn, Lead, Inspire- March, 2018

Happy March!

Hard to believe we are heading into March!

Thank you to all who attended conferences with your child. If you had to miss, please call your child's teacher and reschedule. We want 100% attendance, as this partnership supports our students in their academic development. Thank you for your support of them as they achieve great things!

The renovations continue and the students had a chance to experience inside recess in the new gym before the floor was installed! It was a blast (see pic from the recess!).

NBC 15 School Shout Out!

We got chosen to participate in the School Shout Out! It was so fun! Here are a few pics from the event!

Family Teacher Partnership (FTP) News

We had a wonderful Winter Fest! Special thanks to Katrina Resch for her coordination of this event and to the many volunteers who helped make this a fun success!

Thanks to all the volunteers and supporters of our Book Fair! Special thanks to Michelle Marshall, Mindy O'Toole, Jeanne Jonely, Sonia Kachel, Amy Roselle, and Michelle Malone for their extra efforts! We thank you!

Thank you to the families who donated to the teacher dinner during conferences! It is always a treat to have a dinner on a long day!

Thanks to all our volunteers- we appreciate all you do for our school!!

Leadership Week!

We held a Leadership Week celebrating students being leaders in all aspects of our lives. Lincoln is proud to be the First Leader in Me School in the state of Wisconsin, and part of this involves Leadership opportunities and celebrations for students throughout the year.

The Leadership Week began with opening ceremonies led completely by students. This included sharing in song, setting an all school WIG (Wildly Important Goal), and setting ways to achieve it. Throughout the week, family and community members were invited in to see various activities in the classrooms-led by students. Students shared their thoughts on leadership on the morning announcements and participated in buddy activities and service projects.

The Closing Ceremonies- again led by students- celebrated with song and the achievement of our WIG. Because we achieved keeping our school clean, Mrs. Kilar, wore a large pink WIG throughout lunch periods.

Thank you to all families who were able to stop by and enjoy spending time with our students! It is awesome to see their leadership in action!

Wednesday Communicator

It is SO important that you look through this White Wednesday Communicator on Wednesdays and be sure to return this to school. We are stuffing these each Wednesday (Thanks Kathy Ross!), and need to have these returned. Thank you for your attention to this process!

IMPORTANT Summer School Information!

You will be using Infinite Campus for all summer school registration. You received a yellow sheet in last week's Wednesday Communicator. We will send that again this week AND a green sheet that has your login information. Please look over this carefully as you can begin registration on APRIL 16th- May 4th!

Drop off and Pick Up!

Thank you to everyone for making this a safe and smooth process! Please drop your children off in the back before school to either go to the fenced area, or head inside for breakfast. After school, please pick up in the back. WAIT in line if you are not parking. Do NOT make a U-turn near the pick up line as that is a crosswalk.

PLEASE- the handicap spaces are designated for those who have a disability and subsequent sticker/tag. We have several students, parents and staff who need these spaces. The slanted yellow lined space is for wheelchair loading. IT IS NOT A PARKING SPACE. We appreciate you abiding by the signs!

Pick up and drop off is a great time to model patience and practice rule following for your children. A great discussion starter is to share that we follow rules to keep everyone safe!

Thank you for helping make Lincoln a safe place to learn and grow!

Mrs. Holle is back!

Welcome back to Mrs. Holle in our school office!

Lunch/Breakfast Accounts

Please be sure to keep your child (ren)'s lunch balances in the positive. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to ask the office for a free/reduced application. Our district prides itself on providing a hot lunch with fresh fruits and veggies daily- to do this, it is important the accounts are in the positive. Thanks for your attention to this!

Spring Break

Mark your calendars for our Spring Break! We will be off of school March 26-April 2nd.
