Grab N Go Fridays

Once again, Lincoln is partnering with the Ozaukee Food Alliance (formerly known as the Saukville Community Food Pantry) to provide any child residing within the district with snacks and easy-to-prepare meals. If your child was in the program last year, we will still need you to fill out the registration form for this year. Letters and registration forms will be coming home soon, so please check your child's backpack. We also have extra copies in our office vestibule. We hope to start distributing to families before the end of September; however, families are able to register at any point during the school year.

Request for Pop Tabs

Lincoln students, families, and staff have been collecting pop tabs for the past six years to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) in Milwaukee. This wonderful organization provides a home away from home for families with a child who is staying at Children’s Hospital.

The RMHC offers many wonderful amenities for families, to help them maintain as much normalcy and solace as possible. These include a game room, computer room, study room, Secret Garden, laundry room, fitness center, playground, art and music therapy, church, and free meals.

Pop tab donations are one of RMHC’s funding sources and in May of every year, they hold a special “Pop Tab Day,” when the value of pop tabs is generally tripled! That’s right, rather than earning 33¢ per pound, each pound of pop tabs collected on this day is worth around $1.00!

Historically, we've been able to donate an incredible amount of tabs during this time, but we need everyone's help to do it again this year.

So what can you do?!?!? Simply pop off the tabs from aluminum or tin cans and send them in with your Lincoln Lion at any time. Students can give them to their classroom teacher or drop them off in Mrs. Granrath's office, Room 138.

Labeling personal items

Please label personal items, including sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, and backpacks. Our lost & found gets very full of unlabeled items. If they're labeled, we return them to students.

Please pack an extra set of clothes in your child’s backpack. When a child spills milk at lunch or finds a puddle at recess, he/she will be able to change into comfortable clothes and comfortably return to class.
