Good evening, Lincoln families. This is Mrs. Parham with an update on behalf of our Lincoln team.
This update contains 3 pieces of information.
First, congratulations again to all of our Lincoln students and families for ALMOST reaching our goal of having 100% of our students registered for weekly covid testing at Lincoln! We still only have 2 students in the school who need to register! This Friday, March 11th, we will be hosting a pizza party to award the classes who were able to get all students in their class registered. We are VERY excited for our Lincoln community for reaching this milestone.
Second, on Wednesday, March 23rd, we have FREE dentist coming to Lincoln through the Big Smiles program. Any Lincoln student is eligible to see the dentist for a free teeth cleaning and recommendations for follow-up dental work. If you'd like your child to be seen by the dentist, please complete the Big Smiles application your child was already given by their teacher, and once you complete it, have your child turn it in the next day to their teacher. If you need another application, please have your child ask their teacher for one.
And last, this week we begin ELPAC testing at Lincoln. The ELPAC is a state exam that all English Learners are required to take. We have 237 Lincoln students taking the ELPAC this year! This week, our 2nd and 3rd grade English Learners will be taking the ELPAC. Next week, our 4th, 5th, and 6th graders will take it. If you have any questions about the ELPAC, please let us know.
That's all I have for now. Please have a restful and safe evening, and GO LIONS!!!
