Thank you Lincoln Community for All Your Donations!
100th Day Collections
For the past twelve years, Lincoln School classes have participated in a special activity for the 100th day of school. Each grade level has worked together to collect 100 of a specific personal item. The items are all donated to the Woburn Council of Social Concern. These are items which are not typically covered by food stamps.
This year, thanks to the generosity of the Lincoln community, our school was able to donate 1,001 items! We were able to exceed our goal of collecting 100 items per grade level. The Woburn Council was so appreciative of the large delivery of toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, sponges, and lip balm.
Thanks to Everyone for participating in this important initiative and for helping families in need in our local communities!
Our newest philanthropic project at Lincoln School is Pennies for Patients! Students will be bringing home a small collection box this week to collect loose change that will be donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This project will run for the entire month of March.
A representative from the Pennies for Patients attended our All School Assembly the week before February vacation to speak with all of our students about the mission of Pennies For Patients. Students learned about how these donations, no matter how small, can make a difference towards finding cures for cancer.
We will be collecting donations from each individual classroom. At the end of the month we will tally the amounts from each room. The classroom that raises the most funds will be treated to a Pizza Party!
Families, please mark you calendars for the Gr. K-2 Winter Concert on Participating students should dress nicely for this special occasion and should go to their classrooms at They have some special songs prepared for you. For safety reasons, siblings who are not performing should sit with their families. Please do not exit the auditorium until all three grades have performed.
Active Drop-Off Volunteers
Even if you can volunteer 1 morning per week, we could really use your help. (The school bus pulls into this location each morning to drop off students at approximately the same time many parents also use the live drop-off)
Some parents have been parking illegally in the bus only lane while the bus driver is trying to pull in. This poses safety concerns for students exiting the bus. Officer Groux is ordering new parking signs that are larger, in hopes that this will deter parents from parking in the BUS Only Lane.
The Winchester Police Department and LSPA have also advertised in the past for additional crossing guards and parking monitors but we have not been able to find someone to fill either of these roles on a consistent basis. We will continue to try and fill this position(s). If you know of someone who might be interested in either being a crossing guard or parking monitor, please contact Kelly Clough or Officer Groux. We greatly appreciate your assistance.
