PRINCIPAL'S NOTES AND HIGHLIGHTS
- CSA Lincoln was featured in two articles in The Republic newspaper this week! Monday an article about a downtown community garden that our first and fourth grade classrooms will be partnering with Cummins was on the front page. The Indianapolis Colts brought their camp on Tuesday as part of the Play 60 initiative and our students were on the front of the sports page! CSA Lincoln has had a front page story six times this year. That is great PR for our school. Way to go Huskies!
- Thank you to the many volunteers and the hard work of staff and volunteers who made the Colts camp possible. Everyone seemed to have a great time. At one point I saw Mr. Schlaudroff diving over a pylon to catch a pass. Some took it a little more seriously than others... You can access the Colts website here to see a small photo gallery or you can access the button below of photos our fourth grade students took of the event.
