What's New

Chicago Trip

This is a reminder that the Student and Parent Responsibility Sheet, financial slip (indicating whether or not you are participating in fundraising) and the first deposit of $50 for the trip to Chicago is due December 18th. Checks should be written to CSA Lincoln. If you need financial assistance with the trip, you must contact Mr. Findley prior to December 18th. Your child's teacher will be contacting you this week if you have not turned the forms or deposit in.


We will be having a Pizza Party for lunch on Friday, so if your child wants pizza, they don't need to bring in lunch!


We will also be having a holiday party on Friday. We would really appreciate some donations of snacks for the kids to enjoy during this time! Miss Albright has 21 students in her class, and Mrs. Pickup has 22.


We will be attending 5th Grade's Holiday Shop on Wednesday, December 16. If there are items your child wishes to purchase, make sure they have money on Wednesday!


Mrs. Pickup's class is leading town hall meeting on Friday, December 18th at 8:35.
