The PTO is having an in-person fair for the students to shop during the school day next week. Students will be able to shop during their library time and other times, so please consider the convenience of an e-wallet for your child. This is an excellent opportunity to buy books for summer reading. Information should have come home this week in your child's book bag. The book fair will be open Tuesday evening during the Family Read-In (RSVP) so that parents and guardians can shop. There is also an ability to shop the book fair online through the virtual fair on the website. Below is the book fair website that has fair dates and times, e-wallet signup, and volunteer signup. We do need volunteers!!!  

The Fair will be open for parents during the following times:

Thank you to the fearless Carnival Leads Kerri Joy and Courtney Perry for stepping up to spearhead the effort and carry us through the day.

Thank you to our Carnival Committee for working so quickly and pulling out all the stops on this event. It was huge and wonderful for our community.

Volunteers: Linette Gary, Jessica Roberts, Jackie Castaneda
Games: Rob Hart
Food: Megan Puntillo, Cathy Kruse
Cakewalk: Amy Beane

Thank you to the school staff! Ms. Hughes, Ms. Lowry, Ms. Roskopf, Lincoln teachers, and custodians all came out to volunteer! Big thanks and props to Principal Gordon, Mr. Childress, Mr. Raad, and Ms. King for getting dunked so many times!

Thank you for the raffle, specifically all the community members who donated items for the ticket of choice and the silent auction. AND to all the teachers for donating their time to be raffled off during this busy end-of-the-year. Saints!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered Sunday to set up, operate, and clean up the event. Over 200 volunteers stepped up to help make this happen. We couldn't have done it without your help.

Thank you to everyone who donated cakes! So many of us will be eating extra dessert this week. Just in time for swimsuit season, but we will enjoy every sweet bite.

And finally, thank you to everyone who came out and had fun! While the Carnival is technically a PTO fundraiser, it's also a community builder. After the last two years, Sunday was a joyful reunion.

Angel Funds

District 97 received Angel Funds from an anonymous donor to support families in most need. We are so grateful that Lincoln is the recipient of a little over $10,000! We can use this money to support our students and families. Below is a link that you can use to request support if you need it. Someone from Lincoln will contact you within a week of your request. If you need more immediate support, please feel free to reach out directly to Mr. Childress, Mrs. Kibblesmith, Mrs. Rojas or Principal Gordon. CLICK THIS LINK FOR SUPPORT
