Lincoln Elementary School

One Lincoln Two Books

One Lincoln, One Author 2017-2018





It's BACK!!!   It's time for the 2018 One Lincoln program!   This year we are making a few changes - most notably, the program has changed to One Lincoln - One Author, Two Books!  In previous years, all of Lincoln read the same book; however, as the new name suggests, this year our Lincoln Lions will be reading TWO books by the same author!  We are so excited to announce that this years author is Andrew Clements.  Each family with students in grades 3 -5 will receive a copy of "Frindle" and each family with students in grades  K - 2 will receive "Big Al".  All books will be sent home tomorrow, April 6th with the oldest child in each respective group. 

Another big change is that in past years, weekly questions were sent home and students who completed and returned the questions were entered into a weekly raffle.  This year, we will be having two raffles, with a winner at each grade level for each raffle.  The first raffle will be held on Friday, April 27th and the second raffle will be May 11th.

Please note:  the K - 2 book "Big Al" is not a chapter book and one that most 1st and 2nd graders will be able to read on their own, however Kindergartners may need some help.
