It is hard to believe the Holiday Break is already here! We celebrated another delightful Holiday Program earlier this week. What makes this evening so special is that the entire Lincoln Community comes together for a wonderful event. It was great to see all of the children come together after hours of practice to perform for the community.
I'd like to wish each family a special holiday. The holiday season is a time for joy and happiness. Enjoy this wonderful time of year by spending time with family and friends. Have a wonderful holiday!
