I cannot believe it is February already! Today’s WSM was filled with fun! Our K/1 students and Handchimes PDT performed, student generated projects were shared and recognitions of our Boys Basketball and Cheerleading teams were honored by Mr. Luzwick = for their work with our Special Olympic athletes, and our newly awarded Geography Bee winner, was honored. In addition announcements about our upcoming Read Across America reading challenge were shared (which involves very fun week and a reading challenge that may find a certain principal being slimed!) Lastly, our Spring Big Event details were announced! If you were unable to attend the meeting today, definitely ask your child what took place!
LP’s Big Event – Save The Date – Wednesday, May 18th 5:30-8:00pm – The LP EXPO is back and will certainly be the learning showcase we’ve come to love. This year’s theme is . . . Celebration of Imagination: Anything is Possible
Look for details this spring about the event and community service project.

Generous Gifts – Lincoln Prairie School is very fortunate to have a number of business partners throughout the area that continually support our school. This past month, the Exxon Mobil Corporation awarded Lincoln Prairie with two $500.00 Educational Alliance Grants. We would like to express our thanks to Bucky’s Mobil Express located at 1700 W. Algonquin Road in Hoffman Estates as well as Bucky’s Mobil Express located at 615 W. Higgins Road in Schaumburg. These types of grants allow our school the flexibility to fund different programs and activities that benefit our school. Please join us as we extend our thanks and gratitude to these businesses.
News FromThe Nurse – We wanted to make parents aware that there have been some cases of lice in the building. While head lice are not a health, hygiene or a safety concern, we know they are a nuisance and that there is an expense related to treating your child for them. We would like to encourage parents to periodically check their children’s hair and heads. Should you suspect or find that your child has head lice or you have any concerns, the school nurse is available to answer any questions regarding District 54’s lice management protocol and review recommended treatment options.
Have a wonderful weekend!
