A reading log has be placed in your child’s blue binder. The goal for
your child is to read for at least 400 minutes outside of class each
month. Please record the minutes your child reads each day, sign the
form, and return the reading log at the end of the month. Each month
(October – March) Pizza Hut and treasure chest coupons will be awarded to
those who successfully meet the reading goal. Even if the goal of 400
minutes is not met, the reading log still needs to be signed and returned.
“Family Fun Night” is the theme for our classroom’s PTO Basket. For those new to Lincoln, each
class collects items to put in a basket and then the baskets are raffled off during the Lincoln
School Carnival (March 18). Basket collections are due by February 26. Thank you!
