Good afternoon,

The reality of the end of the year has set in with the busyness of planning end of year events. Although we are looking forward to last concerts, Portfolio Night, Field Day, Graduation and more, we are enjoying what is still taking place. The energy in the building during PDT today was awesome! Please read through my article in this week’s LP Press for more information on how positive thinking has invaded PDT and LP!

In this week’s LP Press May 12, 2017, you will find important information. Please take a few minutes to check it out.

A HUGE reminder – today was the last Lunch Extreme for the year. Please make sure your children have their lunches in the weeks to come.

The Schaumburg Education Foundation has a few upcoming events you might want to participate in. Please read below for information.

Focus on the D54 Foundation, May 2017 – Golf Outing and Boomers Game
Join the District 54 Education Foundation for our 20th annual golf outing on June 12 and make a difference in the life of a child!

This outing at the Schaumburg Golf Club is the Foundation’s largest fundraising event. All proceeds support the Food 4 Thought breakfast program, STEM after-school clubs and grants for students from financially struggling households. This year we were able to award nearly $35,000 in grants for 330 students to participate in summer programs and classes!

Please consider supporting District 54 children by becoming an event sponsor or golfing. We are also looking for items for our silent auction, as well as gift cards from local businesses to award as prizes.

Visit to sponsor, register or for more information.

Boomers game
You can also support the Foundation by attending the Schaumburg Boomers game on Friday, June 2. Tickets cost $11 and include free parking and post-game fireworks. Children are invited to run the bases at the end of the game. For each ticket sold, $5 will be donated to the Foundation. The Addams Junior High School chorus will perform the National Anthem before the game.

To order tickets visit and enter Promo code 2017d54, or click here to download the 2017 Boomers flyer and mail it to the Boomers with your payment.

Lastly, to all the moms and important women in our children’s lives – we wish you all a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A note from the student Principal For The Day, Theo J. . .

Good afternoon LP families! Today we had the WSM. The Battle of the Books people did a good job. The 4/5’s sang a song about the Revolutionary war. The K/1’s sang a song about the solar system. There were a lot of volunteers for the Pigs & Noodles challenge. They all did a good job. Thank you volunteers for helping Lincoln Prairie be awesome. The last WSM will be on Thursday, June 1st at 1:10pm. Thank you for reading this.

A note from the other principals, Mrs. Stochl & Ms. Gluff. . .

On behalf of the entire staff we wanted to share our sincerest gratitude for how you showered us with appreciation this week. The meals you prepared throughout the week were such a special treat. Not only did we not have to think about preparing meals ourselves this week, but it showed how much you care. So many of you spent money and time to create an experience for us. We spent more time together eating this week, which often times we do not make time for. We also got a glimpse into some of the wonderful meals you make for your families.

We are heading into the weekend feeling very loved!

Please read through the LP Press May 5, 2017 for upcoming information and dates.

Good afternoon,

I hope you are looking forward to the weekend! I cannot believe we will be starting our last month of school next week! We still have a lot of fun and learning ahead of us. We are so looking forward to all that is coming!

LP Press
Please read through this week’s LP Press April 28, 2017 for upcoming dates and information.

Spring Attire
Now that the weather is getting nicer, please remember a couple tips to ensure our children come to school ready for the day. All students should have gym shoes on or at school. Flip flops and sandals are not safe to wear in gym class or at recess. Please know that they will not be participating in either without appropriate footwear. Also, although warm, please remember that all students must wear clothing that covers their midsection, undergarments, and other areas that may cause a distraction to others. Any student needing an additional shirt or shorts will be given one at school if need be.

Parking Lot
Our parking lot is to be entered with caution at all times. Students and classes could be taking various breaks outside throughout the day. You should always enter and exit slowly, as well as refrain from using your cell phone in the lot.

We Need You!
We are actively preparing for the arrival of our newest students and families. We are still in (desperate) need of more families to mentor our incoming families. A friendly letter and an extension of a welcome is all we need from you. Please email Mrs. Pantone in the office if you are able to help. Thank you in advance for your kindness!

Have a wonderful weekend,
Amanda Stochl & Julie Gluff

Good afternoon!

What a wonderful week! We have been able to balance PARCC testing, the beautiful weather and fun that could only be had here at Lincoln Prairie! We held a fabulous PDT kickoff this morning, complete with orange beads, fun videos and a competitive grade level chant! My article on the front page of the LP Press explains more.

Please read through this week’s LP Press April 21, 2017for upcoming information.

And do not forget to come out for the 8th grade Pasta Dinner tonight from 6-7:30pm. Even if you did not preorder, this restaurant takes walk ins! It is definitely a highlight, watching our students run a restaurant from our very own gym!

See you soon,

Amanda Stochl & Julie Gluff

Good afternoon,

We hope you are looking forward to a beautiful weekend! Whether you are spending it with family, friends or outside playing (or doing yard work,) we hope it is relaxing and enjoyable!

Please take a few minutes to review this week’s LP Press April 13, 2017for upcoming information and dates. We are entering into a very busy time of year and we do not want you and your family to miss out on anything!

Next week we begin our PARCC testing in 3rd – 8th grade levels. Not every grade level will take a test everyday, nor will testing last throughout the school day. Classroom teachers will notify you with your child’s testing days. We are encouraging students to get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast and to put forth their best effort. We want to send the message to our students that anything they do matters, regardless of what it is.

Enjoy the long weekend,
Amanda Stochl & Julie Gluff

Good morning,

We hope everyone is looking forward to a beautiful weekend!
Please take a few minutes to look over this week’s LP Press April 7, 2017. There are order forms for the upcoming Pasta Dinner, Schaumburg Parent University and upcoming LP activities included as well.

New this year, when completing the 2017-2018 registration, everyone must prove residency. The District 54 School Board recently revised its policy on registration and now requires all families to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year. You will be able to upload your proof of residency through the parent portal (although paper copies will still be accepted at Lincoln Prairie as well).

Have a wonderful weekend!
