Posted August 20th, 2014 by astochl

Welcome back Lincoln Prairie families!

Let me be the first to welcome you back to another amazing year here at LP! As we enter into the year I wanted to share with you some upcoming information.

The attached letter has information on new staff members and upcoming dates for you to mark on your calendars. Please take some time today or this weekend to read through it.  Here are some additional pieces of information to help you prepare for the weeks ahead!

Back to School Community Picnic Monday, August 25, 2014

5:00-6:00pm Supply Drop Off, 5:15pm Picnic Begins

Please join this annual LP tradition. Bring your supplies, outdoor games, a dinner or buy one here at LP and enjoy the LP atmosphere as we watch our kids find old friends and make new ones as well as meet new people in our neighborhoods and beyond! New families, this is an amazing way to get to know people and help your child feel comfortable entering the new year. Please stop by the New Family Table for more information when you get to LP.

Once again the 8th grade class will be selling dinner items. They will have a wide assortment of BBQ meals, chips, snacks, pop, dessert, etc. No need to pack a dinner – just come with some cash and enjoy your evening!

Class  Lists 

Class lists will be posted on the front office windows the night of the picnic. Middle Level students will receive their Advisory teacher placements at that time and will receive their full schedule on the first day of school.

First Day of School   Tuesday, August 26, 2014 (1st – 8th grades) Wednesday, September 3rd  (Kindergarten)

We are looking forward to the first day of school with the children. This day is one of joy and excitement. Please make sure your child has a pleasant morning and is ready with their lunch, a water bottle and a smiling face. As parents you are welcome to bring your child into the school and walk your child to their class, take pictures, etc. on the first day. Staff will be available at the front entrance to greet you. The formal Visitation Policy will begin on Wednesday, August 27, 2014. A reminder of this policy will be sent home in your child’s folder.

Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the start of school this year.

One School, One Book

Posted June 26th, 2014 by Ms. Olivia Jones

The Lincoln Prairie Staff is pleased to announce a community building project called “One School, One Book”!   A copy of “Young Fredle” has been purchased for every family at Lincoln Prairie.  The goal is that every family reads the book this summer before arriving at the picnic.  We hope that reading together will provide an opportunity for rich discussions as you explore Fredle’s world.

A few activities which we hope you will complete and bring them to the “Back-to-School Picnic include:

  • A picture of your family reading together.
  • A picture of your family exploring something new.
  • A t-shirt you can wear to the picnic that represents “Young Fredle” to you.

Enjoy your summer, explore the world around you, and read!
