LCES United: Together We Are More!

Mrs. Hladun's Tidings

I am writing this in my car on a LONG drive home from S. CA and NV - we took a road trip to visit extended family and to create new memories with my own little family. I hope that you were also able to enjoy the week off and that you found time to relax and enjoy those who are special to you.

A few things our team is feeling thankful for this time of the year:

  • our Veterans and active duty military members - we appreciate your sacrifices
  • Mrs. Stone (who now teaches art at TBMS) for firing the newest tiles created by Colt families last spring
  • the Novela family for installing the newly fired tiles on the tile wall
  • all the families who donated their time or other resources to make the various fall celebrations the week leading up to Thanksgiving Break both fun and delicious
  • Mr. Brown for building and installing three beautiful lending libraries in each of our gardens (see a picture below!)

Upcoming Winter Performances and Book Fair

The week of December 4th, LCES will be ushering in the winter holiday season with our annual winter musical performances featuring students in grades 1-5 and our Choir. The show is directed by Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Guemmer, our music teachers, and Mrs. Crook, our choir director. In addition, our PTC will be hosting a Winter Book Fair in the library.

Each class will be visiting the book fair during their library time during the week of December 4th. Please contact your child's teacher if you need to confirm the date/time of the visit. In addition to their scheduled library time, children can visit the book fair during morning recess, and the book fair will be open the evenings of the the winter performances. The book fair will NOT be open before or after school or at lunch. Click here to volunteer to help at the book fair.

Fall Food Drive & Toys for Tots Drive

We are partnering with the local Lincoln Lions Club to collect non-perishable foods for local families through Wed., December 6. Boxes are in each classroom to collect donations. The class with the highest number of items donated will earn a pizza party thanks to the Lions Club. Our LCES Leadership Ambassadors are hosting at Toys for Tots Drive - all contributions of new, unwrapped toys can be placed in the collection bin in the front office.

Thank you for contributing what you can to benefit those in Lincoln who are struggling this holiday season! If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Soha at or Mrs. Adams at

Seeking Gardening Helper!

We are looking for a parent or two who is interested in helping us maintain our winter gardens. We'll be planing cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower in two of our three beds. We are looking for a parent who can help us (with some student help!) to keep it weeded and watered (as needed).

If you are interested, please contact Karla Noyes at
