PIG Basketball Tournament after school May 1st!
Student Leadership has organized a PIG basketball tournament for all grade levels after school on .
In a PIG basketball game, one player shoots the ball and if he or she makes the shot, the other person must also make the same shot, or the person missing the shot will receive a letter...P and so on. The first person who misses enough shots to spell the word PIG, loses the game.
This match competition will be the best two out of three games and the winners will advance to the next match until only one person is left at each grade level.
Boys and girls will compete against each other.
Shorter height baskets will be provided for the youngest players in kindergarten, first and second grade.
You may pick up an entry form for this contest at the table near the large whiteboard in the lobby near the gym. More information will be provided at the table.
All entries must be completed by the end of the day next Tuesday, April 28. No entries will be accepted beyond .

Lincoln Elementary plans to implement a Farm to School Program in the fall of 2013. The program will involve a partnering with local grocers and farms for seasonal produce to be offered to students during their snack periods. Starting the third week in September each one grade level will be served a fruit or vegetable during their snack time. One or two volunteer parents per classroom along with available student council members will prepare and deliver the snack to the classrooms. The fall snack program will run for 14 weeks as will the spring snack program for a total of 28 weeks.
Parents with a connection to a local grower, experience with Farm to School, or an interest in volunteering with the Farm to School Program are urged to contact:

First installed in May of 2013 with the assistance of Lincoln School neighbors, the three raised bed gardens are a living classroom, where students can engage in the science and biology of food, to see firsthand, the process from start to finish. In April, Mr. Sprau's 5th grade class began a seed nursery indoors and eventually transplanted to the garden. The wide variety of vegetables planted included tomato's, cucumbers, Swiss chard, zucchini, onions, carrots, and beans. The success of the gardens is noteworthy and plans for future classroom integration will hopefully expand to all grades so students can learn how food grows.
Student safety is our foremost concern on a daily basis. Throughout the district all elementary schools are sending home dismissal forms for parents to designate their child’s dismissal plan. It should be noted that this plan will be followed daily unless we have receive a phone call or note from the parent to indicate a change in the plan. Please review this plan with your child so that they have a clear understanding of your family plan. A copy of this form will be sent home with every student. If you need another copy or have a change please download and print the form below.
