Dear SUPER Lincoln Families,

Back again this year is the Reader's Ignite book drive, sponsored by our 1st Grade teachers and students.  Bins are out in the hallways.  Last year we were able to donate 1250 books to schools in need!  When you're doing your spring cleaning, go ahead and send gently used children’s books that you are no longer reading to start filling up these bins. Also, during the last week of school we will have a school supply drive. Gently used supplies will go to schools in need. Please let your child’s teacher know if your child will be donating their supplies.

Ongoing Reminders…

D205 Foundation ‘Queen of Hearts’ Raffle @ Cottage Hill
Cottage Hill Station has partnered with the Foundation to support fundraising efforts by hosting a Queen of Hearts Raffle. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the restaurant (no purchase necessary). Drawings will be Thursday evenings between 7:30-8:00. The lucky winner will split the proceeds with the Foundation as the beneficiary of the raffle. Much gratitude to Cottage Hill Station for helping to support educational enhancements in all thirteen public schools!

Communication Throughout the School Day - REMINDER
If you need to get a message to your child, please contact the school office. Due to the disruption in learning associated with cell phones, Gizmos, Apple watches, and other such devices, all technological devices and toys brought into the school by students each day are expected to remain in backpacks UNTIL THE END OF THE DAY. If you or your child need to get a message to each other, please respect the learning environment by using the office staff to help deliver these messages. Also, due to the rigorous teaching day, teachers are most often unable to check and respond to emails throughout the school day. If you send an email to your child’s teacher, you can reasonably expect an answer within 24 hours. If the message is more urgent, again, please be respectful of the learning environment by using the office staff to deliver important messages.

Safety Reminders
Our Lincoln Traffic Map can be accessed on our website if you have any questions.

Moving Car Line on Hillside - Please refrain from parking early and waiting for your child before the after school bell. Neighbors need access to their driveways and due to the construction taking place on the houses across from Lincoln on Hillside, we need to keep the street as clear of cars as possible. Please keep the Car Line moving.
