The Lincoln Lightning

"Your SPARK of information!"

September 24th, 2021

Dear Lincoln Families:

As we welcome the official start of fall, we are so thankful for our Lincoln Community. What an incredible turnout for our Back to School BBQ. It was so wonderful connecting with one another and creating memories. We can't wait to continue many of our traditions, even if modified, as we move through the 2021-2022 school year!

Of note in the district update: we are in need of superhero substitute teachers! If you are interested, please reach out to me... I'd love to have a conversation! You would be hired through our Edustaff system and can select the days and/or buildings you'd be willing to commit to. If you have a college degree (any subject), have a positive attitude, are flexible, and love kids... we want you on our Lincoln Team!

Breakfast Served 8:00 - 8:15am

Please note that we will be serving breakfast from 8:00am - 8:15am during our soft-landing. We will stop serving at 8:15am so that students will have time to finish up and be ready to learn for our school start time of 8:20am. If your child would like breakfast, please try to have them at school early during our soft-landing.

Overdrive/Sora App

The Wauwatosa School Libraries invite our students to read or listen digitally anywhere and anytime using Overdrive on your web browser or the Sora app on your mobile device. Students may access with their district google log in. Happy Reading!

Student Dismissal Form

All teachers will walk students out of the building every day as we dismiss at 3:20pm (2:20pm on Wednesdays). It's important that we are aware of your child's dismissal plan to assure the safety of all our students. Please fill out the following form for each of your children who attend Lincoln School. If there is a change of plans, make sure to let the teacher and our office staff know before 3:00pm (2:00pm on Wednesdays). Teachers do not always have an opportunity to check their emails/voicemails before dismissal, so double-checking with our office is a good way to ensure students know the plan. Thank you!
