From the Principal:
Dear Lincoln Families, Thank you all for a wonderful start to this school year. I’ve been impressed and
inspired by how well our students, parents, and teachers have adjusted to our “new now.” Even social
distancing can’t separate our students and teachers from having fun at school! Thank you for your effort
to keep our kids and faculty safe and healthy - you are doing a terrific job! I believe there is no better
place to be than an elementary school, and there is no better month in an elementary school than
October. I love the warm days and the cool nights. I love seeing the students settle into their classrooms,
develop sweet, close ties with their teachers and classmates, and find joy and curiosity in their daily
lessons. Halloween is just around the corner. Our Halloween room parties will be held on Friday,
October 30. As a reminder, full-face masks, weapons and look-like weapons are not permitted. Vision
must not be impaired, so anything that covers a student’s head is considered a safety hazard and is not
permitted. Face paint is allowed in moderate amounts. Faculty and staff need to be able to identify
students as much as possible during the day. Please help us keep your students safe by following these
simple expectations during the Halloween celebrations at school. As always, thank you for supporting
Lincoln Elementary as we provide the best education we possibly can. Happy October! Principal McKell
From the PTA President:
Happy Fall! It’s hard to believe we’ve been back in school for over a month now! Thank you to everyone
who has signed up to help in your children’s classrooms with upcoming events and/or joined the PTA
this year. It is not too late to become a part of the PTA and we could really use your support even if you
are unable to volunteer in the school or classrooms. Your membership in the PTA ensures that you can
stay informed on important issues that affect our school and community and that we can continue to
offer school activities and events that support our Lincoln kids and strengthen our school. Watch for
more information coming this month about prizes and drawings for new members that sign up during
Oct and Nov. Also, with the cooler weather upon us, it is not too late to order your hoodies and school
Spirit Wear if you haven’t already. To place an order, simply fill out a form from the bulletin board across
from the main office and drop your completed form with payment attached (cash or check made
payable to Lincoln PTA) in the blue lockbox at the office. We are looking forward to Red Ribbon Week
coming up this month and if you would like to be involved or help out with this or any other school
events please contact myself or a member of the PTA for more information on how to get involved.
We are so grateful to all the administrators, teachers and staff at Lincoln who are working hard to keep
our kids happy and safe this year. And thank you for all of your support and efforts in helping to make
Lincoln a great school where our kids can continue to learn and grow! Rebecca Foulger (PTA President

Family Life Corner:
Hello Lincoln friends! My name is Holly and I'm excited to share with you some fun and exciting ways to
strengthen our home and family life. I wanted to share with you a simple memory I had as a child. Every
now and then, my parents would take me on one of my very own outings. I felt so special!! I
remembered that we didn't need to spend a lot of money to have a great time. It was that one-on-one
attention that I needed. We spent quality time together taking walks, having a treat, or just talking with
each other. This simple, yet special time was something that stayed with me and I remember it fondly,
even now. Take a look at some of these ideas and maybe plan to do them soon! Have a great time!!!
1. Go to a Movie: movies can be expensive with the entire family! On a date, you can see what
that specific child wants and save money.
2. Get a Special Treat: go to ice cream or get doughnuts. Go to a special candy shop or out for pie.
3. See a Performance: musicals, ballets, jazz concerts, or music concerts. Check local high schools
for inexpensive options.
4. Do Something Active: miniature golfing, ice skating, swimming, rock climbing, bowling, roller
blading, or go for a walk.
5. Go Out to Eat: let your child pick the place and go have a nice meal together.
6. Go to a Sporting Event: basketball, rodeo, football, soccer, gymnastic meets, swim meets, even a
7. Visit a Museum, Zoo, or Gallery: Pick something your child has a passion for and go check it out.
8. Go for a Walk: Walks are inexpensive. You can hike or just walk around the neighborhood.
9. Play at a Park: go to a park and really play with your child, don’t just sit on the side and watch.
10. Go Shopping: some children love to go shopping. Get a special something at the mall, or get
some décor for the bedroom. Even new shoes can be exciting!
