March is Here

Good afternoon, I am hoping that we just had our final cold snap of sub-zero temperatures for the season. As many of you know we have a lot of snow piles and ice still remaining on our playground and around our school. This often can cause hazardous condition especially during pick up and drop off. Please make sure that you are pulling over to the side and patiently pulling away once your child is safely out of your car or in your car. Also during pick up, your children should remain on the sidewalk, never entering the street or in between cars in the front of the building. Our most important job is to keep our kids safe, please make sure you go over these expectations with your children. This weekend we will observe daylight savings time so remember that we will spring forward this weekend, do not forget to change your clocks.

This week we had a lot of wonderful fun events. Last Thursday evening we hosted our first family math night. Many families joined in the fun and learned about math through literacy, geometry and fun games. Please check out our Twitter feed or Facebook page to see highlights of the evening. Thank you to Mrs. Smith our math specialist for helping organize this wonderful event and to our teachers for facilitating the activities. Second grade is studying the form and function of plants in science, check out some photos highlighting their investigations. Yesterday, our first graders were honored with reading awards. Mrs. Harmon created a wonderful celebration honoring the work of every reader. Photos are below highlighting this new tradition. Please check out our facebook page and Twitter page to see these and other highlights.

We have two weeks left until spring break, our kids are doing a great job and continuing to work hard and learn. A week from Thursday on March 21, Lincoln school will celebrate its 90th anniversary. We will have an all-school assembly with a guest alum speaker, the Mayor, and performers to commemorate Lincoln School's 90th year of educating students. Students are encouraged to dress as they were 90 years old or as students may have back in 1929.
