From the Principal:
Parents & Students, Welcome back from your Christmas Break! I hope you all had an enjoyable and restful holiday! We are ready to get back into the swing of things! Just a reminder as the weather changes and days become shorter to make sure that your students are dressing in appropriate clothing to walk to and from school. As you are dropping off and picking up your students, please be aware of students walking and crossing the streets as we begin to lose daylight. In January we will be having our 5th & 6th grade Ski Day on January 16th: Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 20th; STEM Fest on January 27th. Parent Teacher Conferences will be the first week in February so the scheduler will open for you to sign up for conferences some time mid-January. You will be receiving more information on Ski Day, STEM Fest, and Parent Teacher Conferences at the beginning of January. Thank so much for all the parents that are following the dropping off and picking up rules as well as the rules of the roads that are surrounding our school. We want all of our students to be safe and appreciate those making the effort to do so. Thank you for all you do for our students!! Sincerely, Jeni Buist
From the PTA President:
Happy New Year from the PTA! It’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone again. I want to give a great big thank you to all of our PTA board, members and parent volunteers who have spent countless hours in the classrooms and school on behalf of the kids. We are looking forward to the upcoming year and activities that are planned over the next few months. If you have not yet joined the PTA or if you are interested in volunteering for upcoming activities, please fill out a form at the front desk and leave it in the blue PTA box. We are always looking for volunteers to help with activities. As a PTA we would also like to express our continued gratitude and appreciation for our hard-working teachers, staff and administration at Lincoln. We are so grateful for all that they do! We wish you all a very happy and safe New Year and look forward to seeing you at school in 2020! Rebecca Foulger (2019-20 PTA Pres)

Healthy Living Challenges:
Remember to turn in your December calendar for the Healthy Living Challenge (Goal: 15 min of meditation or mindfulness 3 times a week). Each student that met the goal for December will get a charm in the first week of January to put on their keychain! If you didn't make it this month, you can start in January. Watch for calendars to come home with the new goal. Parents, please remember sign your students' calendars each day they complete the challenge so they can get credit for it.
Family Life Corner
I currently have children in University, High School, Jr. High, Elementary, and preschool. Every stage of life has joys and challenges. Celebrate the joys! Be a support during the challenges! Celebrate progression! Annette Staffanson, PTA Family Life Commissioner
Don't forget that it's time to submit nominations for the upcoming 2020-2021 Executive Board. If you or anyone you know would be interested in serving on the Board, please submit the names (in a sealed envelope labeled Attn: Nominating Committee) to the PTA box in the front office. We appreciate any and all suggestions!
Digital Citizenship will be taught in the Media Center for the next few weeks. We will be covering a range of topics from online safety and cyberbullying to media balance and learning with technology. Please watch for family tips and activities that will come home with your students. They will offer opportunities to discuss what they are learning. For more information on what is being taught, you can go to www.commonsense.org.
A huge thank you to everyone for supporting our Angel Tree! Parents, students, staff, district staff, family, and strangers you truly are amazing!! It was amazing to see Mrs. Buist’s office look like Santa’s workshop!!
Box Tops: Turn in by Feb 17!
Starting now, we will be having a contest … the class that turns in the most box tops by Feb 17th wins! Both clipped and digital box tops will be counted. Watch for details about how to enter your digital box tops into the contest in the February newsletter. The New Box Tops app allows you to scan your receipts after shopping or email your Walmart grocery pickup receipt in, and Box Tops will automatically be added to our school’s fund. We will also collect any clipped Box Tops until that part of the program is phased out. Thank you for helping out! Every little bit adds up.
Science Fair: March 5
For students in 3rd – 6th grades. Start thinking about a science project!
