Lincoln Prairie Weekly Update May 4
We enjoyed our May Whole School Meeting, led by the entertaining Avengers (our 8th grade Masters of Ceremony) earlier today. We showcased learning from our Middle Level Visual Arts students, as well as our 4th and 5th graders state float projects. Several recognitions honored various members of our community as well.
Earlier this week we welcomed new families during our annual New Family Night! It was nice to meet so many parents and children! If you are interested in serving our community as a New Family Mentor, please email Paula Pantone at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an optional service to new families, where we provide the parent contact information of a current parent/family. The mentor reaches out through a personalized note or email welcoming the family and extending an offer to connect or support if needed. This has become a valued tradition within our community. Thank you in advance for offering to help!
On behalf of the entire Lincoln Prairie staff, we would like to thank our parents. Staff Appreciation Week has been such a delight! We have enjoyed the delicious meals, the treats and most importantly, the notes and words of kindness and appreciation. We feel so blessed to work alongside our parents and share your children!
Congratulations to our 3rd and 4th grade Battle of the Books team for winning the District 54 competition and for bringing home the District trophy!
Our First Lego League 8th graders, Niko, Pavan, Nick and Shane as well as our winning Fluid Power Group, Charlie, Olivia, Kelly and Shane represented our school this week in the District 54 Stem Showcase. Way to represent Lincoln Prairie!
