Annie Jr.

You are all formally invited to attend this year's 5th grade musical, "Annie: Jr", on Wednesday, April 16th at 6:00 in the Lincoln Gym. The 5th Grade students have been working hard to prepare this performance and I hope you all can attend. It is the same night as the Lincoln Art Show. Please come and show your support for Lincoln's 5th Grade students!

Pennies for Patients Totals

Lincoln families and students really showed how caring they are this year. Our goal was to collect $2,500.00. We collected a grand total of $3,495.35 in one week! The total weight of the money collected was 333 pounds! This money will be donated to the Greater Illinois Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Since we bypassed the goal there will be something planned, and it is currently in the works. Last year I got pie in the face. I can't wait to see what this year will bring! Great job, everyone!

From Mrs. Berger, School Counselor

The 4th Grade Girls' Friendship Group will have their final meeting on Monday, April 7.

Enrollment Forms

Pre-enrollment forms for 2014-2015 were sent home along with report cards on Thursday, April 3. Please take a moment to complete the required forms and return to your child's teacher no later than April 10. Thank you!

Jr. Wildcats Cheerleading/Football

Jr. Wildcats will be having registration for cheerleading. Hanover Pop Warner/Jr. Wildcats is the feeder program for Hanover football and cheerleading. Please stay tuned for more information. We will send it home as it becomes available.


It is requested that electronics such as ipods, cell phones, and Kindles are left at home. Students do not need or use these items at school. Recently we have had two electronic items turn up missing. They are not needed at school, and therefore I am asking for your cooperation to keep all electronics at home. Thank you.

Thank You!

We had our Kindergarten Round Up in March. Thank you to the parents who volunteered to help with this event. It looks like we have another great group of students coming up next year!

From Nutrition Services

Wednesday, April 30 will be the last day all students will be able to charge a combo meal. After May 1, students will not be able to purchase anything from the cafe with a negative balance. No meal charging of any type will be allowed after May 1. All negative balances will need to be paid before the last day of school. Please plan ahead and make sure your student has money in their lunch account.

Mealtime can be accessed from your school web page. Parents can add money, check balances and set up low balance reminders through a Mealtime account. All you need to get started is your child’s student ID number. The ID number can be found by calling the school office.

Monthly menus and other important information can be found on the Nutrition Services website.

Follow the Nutrition Services department on Twitter @HCWildcatLunch. Have the daily menu delivered to your phone every evening!
