Principals Desk

This week we will celebrate Halloween, although October 31 falls on a Sunday we plan to celebrate this year on Friday, October 29th. We will have our parade which will be outdoors for all students K-5 beginning at 1:40, our morning kindergarten class will have their parade at 8:15-those students will parade around the school blacktop and then enter the north doors, parents wanting to see them can line the blacktop.


Students will be able to dress up but they will need to follow guidelines and as always wear specified face masks along with their costumes. Students will need to bring costumes to school as they will dress during an afternoon designated time, please make sure that they need as little support dressing as possible as there are many students and only one teacher per classroom to help with this.


For those parents who wish to have their children participate, please follow the guidelines below:


  • Students must be able to put their own costumes/make-up on without assistance.
  • No masks, aside from usual face masks for COVID-19 may be worn.
  • No costumes and/or make-up may be worn that depicts blood and violence.
  • Students are not to bring anything that resembles a weapon of any fashion, even if it part of a costume.
  • No political costumes, please.
  • No bare midriffs or scant clothing.
  • Costumes must be appropriate for school and not distract students from the learning environment.


Students will be asked to remove any parts of the costume that are not within the guidelines, if you have a question regarding a costume please reach out to me or your classroom teacher.

If you do not wish for your child to participate in the Halloween activity please let your child's teacher know. Lincoln will offer an alternative activity to those students which may include watching a movie or playing games. All activities during the party will be organized by the room parent, and no food is permitted during the party. Thank you for understanding. We need names of parents coming to the parties, this needs to follow all volunteer requirements. See letter attached below.

Student Council

Congratulations to our student council officers. I am proud of all of the students who ran and campaigned for office, great job. Our elections were Tuesday and our officers for the 21-22 Student Council are below.

President-Zoe Walton

Vice President-Brynn McGrath

Secretary-Josh Kersten and Joey Mosconi

Treasurer-Garret Guilbert


We had our first officers meeting yesterday, we discussed classroom representation. These officers will come to classes in grades 2-5 to talk about student council. Students interested in being a classroom representative and part of the student council will write up their speech and the reasons they would be a good choice for the class. Classroom teachers will read these anonymously and then students in the class will vote. The voting will take place on Wed.We will have student council meetings at least once a month after school on Thursdays, at certain times we may need to have more meetings.

Veteran's Day preparation

In an effort to honor our veteran's we are beginning to plan our Veteran's day celebration. Above is an attached flyer for you to print and complete and return to school so we can place these up in our hallways and students can see photos and information regarding Lincoln community veterans. We also would like to do a parade/outdoor celebration honoring those that are able to join us in person on Nov. 11 in the morning. If you know of a veteran that you would like to be invited please complete this google form, including their address or email so we can mail invitations to honor them.
