Also, our theme for December is giving. I read a wonderful book to our remote second grade today, titled Last Stop on Market Street. The class talked about the simple gestures of the character CJ and his grandma. Books are a wonderful way to teach about giving and character development.
As we approach the winter break please take advantage of our remote library book check out, students can reserve books using Destiny and books will be pulled for reading fun and relaxation over winter break. Above I have a picture of first-grader M. Haas with her pile of books she picked up today.
It is time to celebrate and have fun, below is a spirit week created by our fifth-grade class--Let's have some fun with our final week of school in 2020! Also if your student would like, decorate the wall behind them in a holiday or winter theme to add a festive look.

We will guide you through sites and activities you can use with your child to visit faraway places, create a family podcast, find a new favorite book, and play collaborative problem-solving games. Join the Zoom meeting here.
Looking for Lincoln school subs or district subs.
If there is one holiday gift Lincoln and all of D303 could use this year, it's more substitute teachers. With COVID-19 diagnoses on the rise, but also strong protocols in place to keep students, staff, and families safe, absences are on the rise. If serving as a substitute teacher is something you would be interested in doing not only at Lincoln, but at other schools across our great district, here's some information for you:
It takes more adults to operate schools safely for students during the pandemic. District 303 currently has numerous job openings in a variety of job categories. If you are looking for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment, please visit the D303 Human Resources page to apply for a position.
One of the more flexible positions available is that of a D303 Substitute. You can choose to work, or not work, as your schedule permits. Take a moment and read the Substitute Handbook to see what this job entails.
If you are interested and hold a:
Bachelor's degree in any field you would qualify to apply for a substitute license with the state which allows you to sub for teachers or teacher assistants. You would apply using THIS link.
Associate's degree you apply for a Paraprofessional license which only allows you to sub for Teaching assistants. You would apply using THIS link.
High School diploma you have to take an aptitude test with the KANE ROE office. Once you pass that, you apply for a Paraprofessional license which only allows you to sub for Teaching assistants. You would apply using THIS link.
Contact Julie Wenger (email@example.com) with any questions.
Important iReady information
Students have completed their winter i-Ready diagnostic. We will send home paper copies of diagnostic reports before winter break, but if you would like to access your child's i-Ready diagnostic information in the i-ready student portal as well as additional family resources, please watch the video below.
