THE SEASON OF GIVING
Lincoln has been very fortunate to have great community organizations and educational partners who support our students and families. Parent Teacher Conferences were held on November 22, 2022. Parents had the option of coming in person or scheduling an appointment virtually.
Some of our partners came and set up tables to share resources with parents. South Suburban College, Calumet City Clerk, Juan Diego, Catholic Charities, Aunt Martha, KOPE, just to name a few. We also raffled off 30 turkeys, provided 20 turkey dinners to identified families and raffled off gift cards. We had donations from Better Days, Napleton River Oaks Lincoln, S&T labs and Catholic Charities. Better Days, also donated coats for our Coat Giveaway.
I am continuing to work on creating partnerships with local businesses and various organizations to build more community participation and sponsorship opportunities for the Lincoln School community.

Lincoln's Parent Book Club Selection
The parent book club meets every 2nd Monday of the Month. Parents read a chapter a month. They come together and discuss what they've read and share thoughts. It's a great way to approach parenting challenges.
Parents who were interested in joining the preschool book club had the opportunity to sign up at the beginning of September; parents that signed up received The Whole - Brain Child, book and a welcome goodie bag that included a notebook, highlight and bookmark.
The book aims to educate parents on better ways to support their developing children's minds while also acknowledging that our children's brains are still expanding and that we can assist them in creating coping mechanisms for the variety of situations they encounter.
