MLK Day Celebration 2019: Please Share Your Art (e.g. pictures, collages, video of singing, poems, etc.,)
         The Winchester Multicultural Network(WMCN)'s annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday will be Monday, January 2l, 2019 from 3-5:00 p.m. in Metcalf Hall at the Unitarian Church. We are pleased that the Family Action Network (FAN) is again co-sponsoring the event, and we expect a large crowd of families and youngsters.
 As in the past, we plan to display a wide range of student artwork commemorating the holiday, and we hope you and your students will enjoy contributing to this effort!  
If there is anything you would like to have displayed at the event, please leave it in the school office by the end of the school day on Thursday, January 17 and one of our volunteers will pick it up around noon on Friday, January 18.  If by any chance there is a snowstorm predicted, we'll come by for pick-up on Thursday the 18th. 

 Please be sure to label each item with your name, grade, and the name of the school so we can be sure to get it back to you.
 If you have students' work on display, you may want to inform the class and/or parents.  There will be a notice in the school newsletter about the event, which will feature a performer, snacks and cookies, the display of their art, and craft activities. 

Please feel free to call Phil Coonley at 781-729-6787 or email or if you have any questions.  
Many thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving!


 Mrs. Toner, our School Librarian, shared this this wonderful piece on Read Alouds featured recently on PBS. Please take a few minutes to enjoy this brief video and I hope will consider doing a Read Aloud over the holiday break with family and friends.  We are never too old to enjoy a Read Aloud!

Lincoln School 
will be participating 
in the 

The WE CAN Project was designed and created by singer/songwriter Jesse Ruben with the help of some dedicated and talented educators.  The project was inspired by Jesse's song "We Can," which he wrote after running the New York City Marathon for the first time. 

Jesse hoped his song would inspire more people to start running, but it became much bigger than that. What started as an inspiring song has transformed into an inspiring project that more than 600,000 kids in the US and Canada have participated in. 

The WE CAN project is a growth mindset service learning initiative that inspires and profoundly connects students of all ages to the difference they can make in their lives, their communities, and in the world. The We Can Project takes service-based learning a step further, helping children realize that their own dreams and goals can be not only worthwhile but also possible.

The creators of the WE CAN project and here at Lincoln, strongly believe that creating personal goals, and goals for the community helps children realize that dreams can come true, and can feel great at the same time!

We introduced this project to our students at our first All School Assembly. Our staff will be meeting and planning throughout the school year to implement this project and connect what we do to service-based learning that reaches out to our Winchester community and beyond.

The We Can Project website:
The website also has an introduction video, the video clip from the Today Show.  It has the story of how the project got started, how it works as well as some information for parents. 

We will be holding an All School Assembly on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 in our school auditorium, featuring a live performance by Jesse Ruben.  

Thank you to our LSPA for helping sponsor this event for ALL of our Lincoln Students and Staff.  We greatly appreciate your support and generosity.
