Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast
We are so grateful for all of our dedicated volunteers. We couldn’t do everything we do without you. The 4th and 5th grade students have been asked to sing at the upcoming Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast on Monday, April 21, 2014 in the Lincoln Elementary Library. The 4th and 5th graders will be singing a number of wonderful songs to entertain our extra special volunteers. The students will be starting at 8AM in the library. All students in attendance will be given a doughnut to thank them for their time and extra efforts.
Please plan to attend our appreciation breakfast on April 21st at 7:30. We look forward to seeing you there!!
Congratulations to our PTO Vice President Katy Lerew! She was awarded the “Loveland Loves Honors” volunteer award on April 16th. The “Loveland Loves Honors” award is given to community members in Loveland that volunteer in many ways throughout our city. Mayor Cecil Gutierrez and Councilman Ralph Trenary presented her the award. We thank Katy for her incredible amount of time volunteering at our school. We thank all of our wonderful volunteers for their continuous time volunteering at Lincoln!
MAY TESTING DAYS
Thursday and Friday, May 1st and 2nd, are the spring testing days for Thompson School District elementary schools. There will be no school for students on those days; however, your child will be assigned a time to come in for their assessments. Postcards with your student’s assigned time are in their Thursday folders today. Assignments will be for half day, just like we did in August prior to school starting. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Our 1st Annual Lincoln Walk-a-Thon will be held on Friday, May 16th. We are currently looking for monetary sponsors for our t-shirts & water bottles. If you have any business partnerships, and would like information on sponsorship (logo will appear on the shirts), please call Katy Lerew at 970-402-6765 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are excited about this community event!
I wanted to give everyone a heads up that we will be having several volunteer opportunities over the next couple of months. In April, we will have our always fun Carnival and Cake Walk. New to Lincoln this year we will have a walk-a-thon in May. I will send volunteer sign up sheets and menus for our teachers’ dinner through Sign Up Genius soon. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, feel free to contact me, Kaila Kocer at email@example.com.
Thanks for volunteering!
LINCOLN IS NOT IN DANGER OF CLOSING
As some of you may be aware, there has been some recent Facebook activity that mentions Lincoln Elementary. This activity has resulted in a large number of rumors being circulated about the future of our school. Hopefully we can dispel those rumors.
Initially, there was a person stating misinformation who called herself “Betty Jacobs.” She indicated that she was a Lincoln parent. This is not accurate. Following that, a Facebook page was created entitled, "Save Lincoln Elementary." This page is still active and we are unsure who has created it. However, please know that our PTO and SAC groups are not involved in it.
Lincoln Elementary is going strong. We have a vibrant community and contrary to the rumors being spread, the district is not looking at closing our school. We need to focus on our students, who are learning great things every day. If you ever have any concerns about the future of our school, please feel free to contact me directly at any time.
