Good afternoon,

It was nice to see so many families this week at K/1 and Middle Level Curriculum Nights. We hope the evening provided an excellent opportunity to learn more about what your child is experiencing this year. Even more, we hope we were able to provide you with the information and tools you need to help support your child. We look forward to seeing 2/3 and 4/5 parents next week!

Please check out this week’s LP Press September 12 2014 for district information, upcoming events and important dates.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wow! What a day!

Thank you to everyone for working through our end of day challenges due to the weather. While we had no power during the last hour of the day, the students enjoyed reading with buddies, coming up with activities to do in the darker classrooms and continuing with school business, as usual!

Our first edition of the LP Press September 5 2014 is here! A paper copy will come home on Monday. Please note this will be the only paper copy sent home this year.

We look forward to seeing everyone in the next two weeks at Curriculum Night.

Have a great weekend!

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!
