As spring break comes to a close, I hope everyone had time to relax and recharge for our final 7 weeks of school. Upon return, we will review all schoolwide expectations and we have built in some exciting fun activities over these next few weeks. We have an opportunity for females to get involved through support during lunch recess giving our kids options to play, learn and grow under the supervision of females that are important in their lives. We will have a therapy dog visiting Lincoln to support students through comfort and being able to be read to. Selected students have been identified, and if there is more room we will open the opportunity to others that are interested.


We also have the opportunity for running club, which will begin immediately upon return--if you have a son or daughter in grades 3-5 that are interested in running, goal setting, and achieving the accomplishment of a 5K at the end please sign them up for this, the information below and action required. (A separate email was shared).
