CSA Lincoln Newsletter

PRINCIPAL'S NOTES AND HIGHLIGHTS

You will see two newsletters headed your way this week. After a week off, I thought it might be helpful to send a few reminders as we start back up. We only have 3 weeks of school before the holiday break. Let's make the most of it!


I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

PARENT SURVEY

In the past, CSA Lincoln has done parent surveys at the end of the school year. Our CIC met and made some changes to our survey process. This included conducting the survey once at the end of the first semester and again at the end of the school year.


Please click HERE to complete the survey. The new format is mobile friendly*.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 18th. To encourage participation, the class with the highest percentage of parents who complete the survey (your response is anonymous, but it does require you to list the grade level of your student) will win a prize. If you have more than one child at our school, check all grade levels that apply. You do not need to send your survey results in as proof of participation. The survey will take care of it!


Thank you for your input!

*BCSC employees- The firewall will block the survey if using the district network. You can also complete the survey here.

6th GRADE CHICAGO TRIP- FIRST DEPOSIT REMINDER

The initial deposit of $50 is due to the school no later than December 18th with the permission slip. Checks should be written to CSA Lincoln Elementary. If you will need financial assistance with the trip, you must talk with Mr. Findley prior to December 18th.

MEDIEVAL CARNIVAL SUCCESS!

Thank you to all those who came out to support the 6th graders. They raised almost $400 towards their Chicago trip. They are currently working with Popportunity and are selling popcorn as a fundraiser. They even created a Husky mix! I'm personally a fan of the cheddar, but there are plenty of options to choose from. See a 6th grade student if interested.

PARENT/GUARDIAN ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY FORM

Below is a Google form we are asking any parent/guardian who is currently active duty in the Armed Forces to complete. The Department of Education is requiring us to ask for this data. This form and information is kept confidential. A paper copy is coming home today if you prefer to complete it and return it after Thanksgiving break.

LUNCH TIME!

Curious what school lunch is like these days? Maybe not, but we would love for you to come eat lunch with your student(s). It is a great opportunity to connect parents with the school. Are the grandparents looking for something to do? Send them in. Feel free to bring in something to eat or buy a school lunch. If you call ahead, they can prepare a chef salad for you (a staff favorite). Please stop in the main office, sign-in and put on a visitor's badge.

Basketball Schedules

Updated schedules for:


Girls


Boys

Note from the Nurse

It's that time of year again, the flu and cold season is upon us. Please remind your children to dress appropriately for the weather and to wash their hands before eating. A few things to remember are, if a child has a fever of 100.5, they need to stay home until they are fever free for 24 hrs. They cannot have had diarrhea or vomiting for 24 hrs.

Thanks,

Leesa Koopman LPN

HUSKY GRAM DRAWING WINNERS

Students who are seen being SAFE, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, or a PEACEMAKER earn Husky Grams. The following students were caught following our school-wide expectations during the first two weeks and earned a reward!
Big Brothers & Big Sisters

Information on this great program. Both here and at Northside Middle School I have seen HUGE gains for students who are partnered with a "big". If you have time or know someone who would be a good fit, please consider this program.
