Friday is a Professional Development Day for teachers, and Monday is Presidents' Day.
Lincoln Wins December Challenge!
Principal Kruithof and student Ava Luif accept the Attendance Trophy for the month of December from Washington School's "Goal Man". Washington School has challenged Lincoln and Little Mountain to see which school has the best attendance for the year, and Lincoln won the challenge for the 3rd month in a row!
Fifth graders at Lincoln Elementary decided to have a penny drive to support the American Red Cross, as a way of modeling the September Pillar of Responsibility. Hurricane relief and homelessness were specifically named as the highest priorities for the support. The event ended with a popcorn day. Every student received a bag of popcorn and donations were accepted. In total, $661 was raised toward the cause.
Over 30 Lincoln 5th grade students have been attending STEM Camp for 2 hours after school Monday-Thursday for 3 weeks in January.
The Mt. Vernon School district is running the free Afterschool Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Camp for any and all 5th Graders enrolled in a Mt. Vernon School!
