Principal's Notes and Highlights

Happy Friday!

My brother-in-law is getting married this afternoon in San Diego, California. We flew out Wednesday evening and have been spending time with family. I've included a photo of Calvin who will be the ringbearer. Brandon is a doctor in the Navy and the wedding will take place on the naval base. Having the San Diego skyline as a backdrop for your wedding seems like a fair trade for serving your country.

Only three more days of ISTEP testing. Thank you for participating in the theme days!

Have a great weekend!

From the School Counselor's Desk- Attendance

We would like to remind you the importance of being present at school every day. BCSC has a goal of 98% attendance for all students. At CSA Lincoln we are making an effort to succeed in achieving this goal.

Letters have been sent out in the last couple of months to students with attendance concerns.

To help your child keep a good attendance record, we are asking you to contact the school every time a child is going to be absent and provide doctor’s notes when applicable.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact Mrs. Thompson, our school counselor at thompsona@bcsc.k12.in.us or 812-376-4447.

For more information on attendance you can check page 06 of our student handbook available on the following link. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_FhiFWQmV-1Q2tWUFczaW4tV3c/view

Calling All Artists!

Hello CSA Lincoln Families!

We are currently looking for local artists to participate in this year’s Art Show! We would love to find several artists with a wide range of artistic talents to perform “live demonstrations” during our Art Show in May.
