Dear Lincoln Families,


Last Friday, Abraham Lincoln School proudly opened its doors to administrators from school districts across the United States.  Our school was selected by EdLeader21 as a site visit as part of their national conference held in Chicago last week. An overview of our district's  journey towards 21st century teaching and learning, classroom visits, and a student/staff panel discussion were all a part of this very special day.  A huge thank you goes out to Lincoln's PTA for providing morning treats for our guests.   The response we received from the attendees was reinforcing and inspiring.  We are all proud to be a part of this amazing school.

Halloween Schedule - Lunch and Activities


With Halloween right around the corner, I want to give everyone a heads up on the plan for the afternoon.  Please note, lunch will be pushed back to 12:40 PM (same as last few years).  Here is the schedule for Halloween afternoon.


12:40-1:30 Lunch for all students (Students will change into costumes during this time)

1:45-2:15   Halloween parade

2:15-3:15   Parties in homeroom class


Note:  AM kindergarten students will receive information about their party and parade from their teacher.  


As a reminder about Halloween, toy weapons and gruesome costumes are not appropriate for school.  Please reinforce this with your child as you select a costume together. Thank you.


I hope you have a chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and fall colors this weekend! 


Take care,
