February 2019 Newsletter

Red Wheel – A Frozen Food Fundraiser: Students were sent home with order packets and catalogs and sales started on Monday, January 28th. You can collect money with the orders. If you pre-pay it will save you time at pick up. If not, we will have a cashier station at delivery to collect money. The last day to order is Monday, February 11th. Items will be delivered on Thursday, February 28th between 4:00-6:00 pm in the Lincoln Gym. Thank you!

Parent Teacher Conference Days: Conferences will be held Thursday, February 28th (3:30-7:45), Monday, March 4th (3:30-7:45), and Tuesday, March 5th (3:30-7:30). Please call the office to schedule sibling conferences back to back. Otherwise, your student’s teacher will be reaching out to you to schedule a time.

Community Groups: One of the things that our students, parents, and staff told us they wished they could do at our building is spend more time with students in other classes and grade levels. We listened and have formed “Den Groups”. These groups are made up of students from different grade levels which will meet every morning from 7:55 to 8:00 AND every Monday during lunch, recess, and community time. The purpose of these groups is to build community and connections with other staff and students throughout the building. We would like to encourage our students to eat with their dens rather than guests on Mondays in order to cultivate these relationships. This family time is important to us, so please be aware that staff will not be available to meet from 7:50 until 8:00 each morning. If you need to chat, please call or email your child’s teacher to set up a better time.

Counselor: We now have a full time counselor at Lincoln! We would like to welcome Kim Simpson to our Lincoln staff in her new position. Kim is already familiar with our students and staff as she was previously our part time school Social Worker. We’re all excited to have her on our staff full time.

Valentines Day Sale: STUCO will be selling various beanie animals. You can give them to friends, family, or buy some for yourself. The sale will be from Monday, February 11th through Thursday, February 14th from 7:30-7:50 AM. They will be $1.00 each.
