CONFERENCE DATES: NOVEMBER 1, 4, AND 10, 2021
I want to share a few safety guidelines for those families who will attend In-Person Conferences with Lincoln staff members. We ask that you abide by the following guidelines as we continue to maneuver through the COVID pandemic.
- Please use hand sanitizer available upon entrance into the building.
- Please maintain 6 feet of distance from staff members.
- Masks are mandatory while inside the building. If a visitor refuses to wear a mask, we will ask that you reschedule your conference via zoom.
- Please notify your child's team to request a zoom conference if a parent has COVID symptoms or if a positive case exists within the home.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you!
- Please note that Quarter 1 Report Cards will be available for viewing in the Portal starting on Friday, October 29, 2021.
- Spirit Wear was distributed to students on Tuesday, 10/26 . . . Check the backpack!

RECOGNIZE ANYTHING? LINCOLN'S LOST AND FOUND WILL BE DONATED NOVEMBER 10th.
Our Lost and Found will be overflowing by the end of each quarter. In the week or so following the close of a quarter, items in the Lost and Found are donated to charity. Every effort is made to return those items labelled with a student name. Announcements are made to remind students that items in the Lost and Found will be donated to charity.
Multicultural Matrix . . . New Club at Linicoln !
Do you speak another language other than English? Were you born in another country? Have you visited other countries or perhaps been interested in visiting other countries? Whether you answered yes or no, it doesn’t matter! You are invited to join the Multicultural Matrix at Lincoln Middle School. We will be learning about different countries--their customs, traditions, and foods--and we will also be making crafts and connecting with each other. We are more alike than we are different, but we will be celebrating our differences in various ways. Please join us on two Wednesdays of every month for a fun and meaningful time together. Do you have ideas or suggestions for our Multicultural Matrix? If so, join us at our first meeting on Wednesday, November 3. We look forward to seeing you!
PTO WANTS YOU TO KNOW . . .
Donations Requested for Upcoming Conference Grab-and-Go Snacks for Lincoln Staff
Conferences begin next week, and that means some even longer days for our Lincoln teachers and staff. As is done every year, the PTO will be providing food and beverages to staff during conferences to show our appreciation for their efforts and to help lighten their load.
We ask all Lincoln families and PTO members to consider donating via Paypal at this link or through the QR code to help offset costs. You can also drop cash or check made payable to the Lincoln PTO in the school office. Please make sure to mark your envelope “PTO Teacher Appreciation.” Contributions at any amount are appreciated and are tax deductible.
Lincoln’s First-Ever Color Run a Success!It was a brisk morning, but Lincoln’s first-ever color run held last Saturday was a huge success. Many thanks to our volunteers and all who came out to participate (including Dr. Gorr, District Superintendent, Mr. Suminski, Lincoln Principal, and Mrs. Wade, Lincoln Assistant Principal). Fun was had by all! If you have any photos you’d like to share, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ASK THE LINCOLN OFFICE STAFF!
Question: What is the best way to pick up my child during the school day?
Answer: The front office prefers either a signed note or an email to Mrs. Moran - email@example.com AND Mrs. Wiley - firstname.lastname@example.org from a parent with the child's name, grade level, reason for early dismissal and pick-up time. Also, please include the name of the adult picking up your child if it is not a parent.
It may be necessary to issue your child a pass if the pick-up time is during a class period. Otherwise your child should come to the office during the passing period. Written notice eliminates the need for a parent to come in and sign the child out. When your car pulls up outside Door #1, your student may exit from the front office.
If you do not know in advance and must remove your child from class, please come in to the front office and we will call your student out of class. However, this can be disruptive to class and may involve a longer wait time.
THE HEALTH OFFICE . . . . VISION AND HEARING NOVEMBER 4, 2021
Lincoln’s annual Vision and Hearing Screening will take place on Thursday, November 4. Please remind your child to bring their glasses to school on that day. Please note that not all students are screened, this is determined by state mandates. Also, vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye exam by an eye doctor.
Attention 8th Grade Parents of students who wear glasses or contacts: Please email Mrs. Smith, RN, (email@example.com) with the date of your child’s last eye examination.
Please call the health office with any questions or concerns.
