Lincoln Bulletin

As January comes to a close we are in for some warmer than usual weather, over the past two mornings I have heard a cardinal singing, I hope that is a sign that spring will be here soon. Also maybe Punxsutawney will not see his shadow which can be encouraging.


This week we had our St. Baldrick's kick-off assembly, students are encouraged to raise money through purchasing wrist bands, having green extensions put in their hair, or for those who choose they can raise donations to have their head shaved during the evening event. Information letters went home yesterday.


Next week, we will host our Family Bingo Night on Friday, February 7. Please come join us and have some fun!

Wanted: Incoming Kindergarten Students for 2020-2021!-Registration this Wed.

FROM THE SECRETARY


Wanted: Incoming Kindergarten Students for 2020-2021!

Do you have a child or know someone in your neighborhood with a child who will be 5 years of age ON or BEFORE September 1, 2020? We are already planning for next year's kindergarten.


Kindergarten registration will begin on February 5th. Listed below is a link to D303’s registration page which includes all of the paperwork needed for registration. Feel free to print these forms off ahead of time and bring them in with you when you register your student as it will help your registration process go more smoothly.


https://district.d303.org/registration


PLEASE NOTE: The District has updated many of its forms including a requirement for additional paperwork to document proof of residency. This is noted on the Verification of Residency and Enrollment form which explains what kind of documentation is needed to be brought in for registration. Also be sure to bring an original birth certificate during this process.


Please spread the word to your neighbors and friends...Kindergarten Registration begins on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Lincoln main office.

Middle School Transfer Requests

Families who wish to submit Middle School Transfer requests may do so beginning February 3.

The request form will be available on the District 303 website through February 28. Families

must complete a separate form for each student they want transferred. Requests are granted

based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be

communicated to families before spring break.


Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.


Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.


Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle

school attended.

Parent University Book Study

District 303 Parent University presents our second annual book study when we read "The Whole Brain Child" by Dr. Dan Siegel.


In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling book Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. Conversations will be based upon the book as well as supplemental workbook activities.


Study sessions will be offered during both morning and evening times at the following locations:


Baker Community Center (101 S. 2nd Street, St. Charles)

Fox Ridge in the LRC (1905 Tyler Road, St. Charles)


Join us for the book study sessions on the following dates:


February 13, 2020

9:15-10:30 a.m. at Baker Community Center

6:30-7:45 p.m. at Fox Ridge in the LRC

FROM THE NURSE

The Dentist is Coming to Lincoln!

Great News! Lincoln has partnered with Smile Programs...the mobile dentists, to offer in-school dental care right here at Lincoln during the school day.


Even better, dental care is usually at no cost to you. All insurance is accepted including Medicaid and CHIP. For those without insurance, a low-cost self-pay option is available.


Forms were sent home last week. I've got more available in the Lincoln Health Office or sign your child up today at www.MySchoolDentist.com. Permission slips due now.
