Holiday Cheer

I don't know about you, but this time of year is very precious to me. It is also so very BUSY!! December is the month when the year seems to turn to warp speed and we all are even more busy with work, family, friends, parties, etc.. Please remember to take time to enjoy the season and take time for YOURSELF as well this holiday season. It is so very important that we find balance so that we stay strong for each other and our kids here at Lincoln.

As we share Holiday Cheer, remember there are several ways to join in right here at Lincoln! Secret Santa, 12 Days Before Break, Staff Holiday Meal, Staff Holiday Happy Hour, Santa's Workshop, Night of 1000 Lights, Buddy Day, Adopt a Family, Toys for Tots, Staff Potluck and much more. The committee tried to be sure that the Holiday Celebrations this year focused on simplicity, service and friendship!

Stay healthy, strong, and supportive of one another throughout this and every month! We are all in this together! #proud2bleopards
