THE LION POST
September / October 2018
Dear Lincoln Lion Family,
I know we are all surprised how fast September has flown by! We have certainly had a fantastic month here……it has been incredibly busy, but the progress the students have made in a few short weeks has been astounding! By now, everyone is settling in well to their new classrooms, their new routines and getting down to the business of learning. This year has so much in store, our entire team is excited to witness their growth!
October is always a fun month at school……We’ll be diving in to all things fall as we gear up to the busy holiday season. This year we celebrate our Fall Festival on October 30th. Always a great time, this year we are hoping to see even more participants and lots of costume-clad students enjoying their Trick or Treating. Please be reminded that October 8 is a student holiday, October 31 is an early release day (12:50 p.m.), and November 1 is a student holiday.
Events like this are big productions! We could definitely use a few extra hands –– if you are interested in donating candy or treats (store-bought, nut-free please), lending a hand in our classrooms, or stuffing goody bags please let us know!
The procedures and daily activities of your child’s classroom should be familiar and comfortable to them by this time in the school year. If your child is still experiencing anxiety or any type of concerns, please contact your child’’s teacher. You are welcome to also include me on those types of communications. We will be happy to visit with you on the phone or to schedule a meeting to talk together regarding ideas to help your child or the situation. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact us –– we want to help.
We are looking forward to a great October, and a great year!
