A Special Thank you to all of the Staff Members and Parent Volunteers for making this such a memorable event!
Clapping Out Tradition
For those of you new to the school, The Clap Out is a wonderful Lincoln tradition. Approximately 5-10 minutes before dismissal on the last day of school, each class in grades K - 4
line the hallways and join together with the other classes on that floor to form two long lines of students and teachers.
At dismissal time, the fifth graders proceed out of the school building, passing through the third floor hallway first, then the second, finally the first floor and out the main entrance of the school.
During this send-off procession, students and staff clap for the fifth graders to congratulate them on their graduation. Many offer high fives as well! The fifth graders get to visit each floor, see many familiar faces, and wave goodbye to past teachers/staff. It is really a lovely and emotional parting tradition! Fifth grade family members also join in this tradition and line the first floor hallways and the front entrance to the school.
Have a wonderful Summer!
