Principal's Notes and Highlights

Happy Friday!

I will keep it short and sweet this week. Several of you have sent me links or shared videos of school administrators notifying their families of a delay or closing by singing or dancing and suggested that I join in on the "fun". I'm not sure if that is a vote of confidence or you need of a good laugh, but those decisions are made by Dr. Roberts. They aren't easy decisions to make, and I appreciate his focus on student safety. Classes will now be in session March 11th-14th. We have one more day before we would start using elearning days for school closings.

  • Any purchase you make today or tomorrow at Viewpoint Books will be counted as part of our Book Fair. Please be sure to mention CSA Lincoln. Thanks again to Mrs. Goggin for a great week!
  • The backdrop this week is from the BCSC Administration Office. CSA Lincoln is hosting the school board meeting next Monday. Each school is responsible for providing artwork that is framed in the downstairs hallway during the month they host. We took advantage of Mrs. Selbach's camera work and used many of her photos.
  • Kindergarten invitations were sent out today for the 2019-2020 School Year. In all, CSA Lincoln and CSA Fodrea received 243 applications for grades K-6th. That is a new record. We went with a sports theme this year and will post photos of our newest Huskies when we receive them. They are all #1 to us!

Have a great weekend!
