Lincoln Prairie Weekly Update May 11
We have had quite a busy week! We enjoyed our Whole School Field Trip to the Adler Planetarium, welcomed chicks in K/1 classrooms, enjoyed a Middle Level assembly, took our 4/5 students to Springfield and started Spring MAP testing. Did we mention that we hatched some chicks this week? And just a reminder, TODAY is the last Lunch Extreme for the year.
Next week doesn’t look to be slowing down either. Please join us in taking a deep breath as we recognize how memorable the busyness of this time of year is and enjoy each moment and experience – one thing at a time!
At the Schaumburg Township Council of Parent Teacher Association’s annual Scholarship & Recognition Dinner Wednesday night, we had the pleasure of honoring three members of the Lincoln Prairie community. Two alumni, Sebastian Frank and Anthony Spadafore both were honored with college scholarships. They each shared favorite Lincoln Prairie memories including classes they enjoyed and their favorite Parent Teacher Student Association event. Can you guess what event both former Lincoln Prairie students named? They both named Field Day as their fondest Parent Teacher Student Association event memory! Our current Parent Teacher Student Association president, Jen Alton was also recognized by the Schaumburg Township Council Parent Teacher Association board with an Illinois Parent Teacher Association award.
New Family Mentor
If you are interested in serving our community as a New Family Mentor, please email Paula Pantone at email@example.com. 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!
