Special Activities at Lincoln

This week was quite a busy one at Lincoln! First of all, thank you to all of our room parents who provided a great afternoon of fun and treats on Halloween. Along with Wednesday’s festivities, of fun Halloween parties and parade we had our first pie throwing which was an incentive from our Run-a-Thon. Mr. Navis allowed students to throw a pie at him, the students loved being able to see this, so fun! I have lots of photos, but I am having technical difficulties and hope to share via Facebook and Twitter.

First graders participated in a learning experience lead by one of their classmates, this is highlighted in the District Newsletter. Kindergarten hosted a small museum in their classroom where the students shared a special object and wrote about the object including detailed illustrations.

Also, the PTO will host it's skating party this Sunday from 4:30-6:30 at Fun Way, come to join the fun.

CogAT Testing for 3rd and 5th Grades

All Lincoln 3rd and 5th grade students will be taking the CogAT Test next week. Students will begin testing on Wednesday, November 7th and will conclude testing on Friday, November 9th. Students will test for approximately 35-45 minutes each date of testing. The CogAT (Cognitive Abilities Test) measures students’ reasoning abilities in three areas: verbal, non-verbal, and quantitative. Parents will receive a report with your child’s performance on these tests in January.
