Lincoln Prairie Weekly Update May 18

Good morning,

Now that many of our favorite Lincoln Prairie end of the year traditions are already happening, it is clearly a sign that we are embarking on the last days of the school year. It was so nice to see so many families out Wednesday night at our annual Portfolio Night and Art Show/Sale. Looking through artifacts from the year (or all 9 years for most of our 8th graders) proved to be a highlight of our year!


At last night’s District 54 Board of Education Meeting our third and fourth grade Battle of the Books Team (Jack A., Lucia P. and Darsh U.) received an award for coming in first place at the District 54 battle. Kira Weiland, a Lincoln Prairie alumni, received an Outstanding District 54 Alumni award for helping to rescue a fellow student during a swimming incident at HEHS.  Kira was recognized at the school and village level, as well as in the Daily Herald. Such a wonderful example for all of us!

Yesterday, District 54 held their 8th grade Conference Track Meet. Three 8th graders, Ashley O., Niko O. and Lucas O., all qualified for this meet based on their previous times during the track season. Ashley took home a 1st place win in the 400 Meter Race. Way to go, runners!


As you can see below, we have excitement EVERY DAY next week. We are looking forward to seeing many of you again AND spending the last days with our 8th graders.
