Wacky Winterfest NEWS

Thank you for selling over 4,000 tickets this week during our raffle fundraiser!  Our next goal is 5,000 tickets sold which earns a Gum Day incentive for the school!  Your help with raffle tickets sales is critical to the success of our largest fundraiser of the year.  Thank you!

Students who sell 30 tickets will be provided a Fast Pass/Free Play ticket to use the night of Wacky Winterfest in the Gameliner game trailer.  This allows them to use the special Sellers Only line and cut their wait time for this popular game!  

Save time the night of Wacky Winterfest by pre-ordering your $5 game cards.  Game card pre-sale order forms have gone home and can be returned next week.  Game cards are required for all activities.

How you can help!

Baked Goods - BAKE SALE items can be brought to Lincoln anytime on Friday. We appreciate cookies, cupcakes, brownies, rice krispie treats, pies and cake. Please note if any items contain nuts.

Volunteers - we encourage every Lincoln family to sign up for one or more shift at Wacky Winterfest.  Over 200 spots are needed to ensure a variety of FUN for our kids!  Our games cannot be run without workers so no helpers means fewer games and fun. Please sign up here:

Candy - individually wrapped candy to be used as prizes.  (Smarties, tootsie rolls, laffy taffy etc)

Prizes - coloring books, play doh, lego minifigures, puzzles, sticker packs

Monetary Donations - Donations of $100 or more will be advertised as Game Sponsors

Set up - Friday, February 17th beginning at 4pm we will be setting up for our night of WACKY fun.  Many hands make light work as we transform the school into a kids carnival!

Birthday Blessings - Mrs. Becker’s 5th grade class has been awarded a grant of $250 from the Iowas Realtor’s Association’s “Project Jack” to be used “pay-it-forward” in Iowa.

On Monday, January 30th, all Lincoln students had the chance to board a school bus and review bus expectations. Following this, we completed our required evacuation drills. We spent this time reviewing expectations to help students to be safe as we all ride the bus at some point during the year, many each day. Please review these expectations with your students and be sure to ask if you have questions.
