Lincoln School Counselor Notes

Breakfast Rocks!

Did you know that Lincoln School serves breakfast in the morning? It is a great start to the day. My personal favorites are the french toast sticks with fruit and chocolate milk! Check out the breakfast menus here.

Students receiving free or reduced lunch prices also can get breakfast at free or reduced prices. The cost of a regular breakfast is only $1.15. If your child wants to try breakfast, they just need to let their teacher know the day before and they can try it out.

Pennies for Patients

It is time for the Pennies for Patients drive at Lincoln School. On Monday, February 17th the students will be getting a box to take home. The students are asked to gather up some spare change in the house to donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

By participating in Pennies for Patients, students and their classmates will be making a huge difference in the lives of patients with blood cancers.

We will be joining millions of students across the country who will raise funds to find cures and therapies for diseases like leukemia and lymphoma.

Parent Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the drive last?
Students can bring in their change any time or several times from February 17th through February 28th.

Are there prizes for the program?
We do keep track of how much each grade level brings in, however, we do not want to treat it as a competition for prizes. We are just excited to see the kids do something for a worthy cause.

Can we donate more than pennies?
Yes! Nickels, dimes, quarters, bills, checks, and online credit card donations are all accepted. To make a donation online, go to our school's site at http://kan.sy.llsevent.org/ng/index.cfm/ae282bc/regPages/pledge/LINCOLNELEMENTARYSCHOOLCLAY/ and click "Donate Now."

Do the funds we donate go directly to a local family?
Funds that are raised on behalf of LLS cannot be earmarked for a particular patient. Patients can apply for our Patient Financial Aid Program or Co-Pay Assistance Program, which can reimburse families for expenses related to treatment or insurance costs. In addition, funds raised by more than 25,000 schools assist in serving patients, as well as funding innovative research worldwide to find cures.

3rd Grade Mentors Get Uniforms

Thanks to a generous grant from the Clay County Educational Endowment Association, the 3rd Grade Mentors got their "uniforms" this week. To add more responsibility and respect to their jobs, the students now have t-shirts they can wear while working. The CCEEA grant funded not only t-shirts for the 3rd grade workers this year, we will have enough to put "uniforms" on our workers next year.

Lincoln School now has 58 students who have applied for and received jobs in the school throughout the week. Check out the article in the Dispatch about the 3rd Grade Mentors here.
