Lincoln Weekly Announcements 2019-06-06Academics Lincoln Elementary
Lincoln Families - Thank you for sharing your children with us this year! We hope you have a safe, educational and fun summer! We will see you in the fall!
We will email home student report cards today! We are only able to send these one grade at a time, so if you have multiple students, please allow us time to send all. If you don’t receive it, please let Mr. Bryant know.
End of the Year Lunch Balance - In order to balance our accounts in the lunch program at the close of the school year, we need to have your child's lunch account balance at 0 or above. Please bring it up to date as soon as possible. Any remaining balance will remain in your child's account and carry over for next year. If your children will not be attending Cedar Falls schools next year, please let us know as soon as possible and they will be given a refund of the balance left in their account at the end of the year.
Please remember to pick up medications in our nurses office before summer!
Please also make sure to check on Lost and Found. All items left after the last day of school will be donated!

Would you like to help take care of our gardens this summer? We have planted kale, peppers, cherry tomatoes and zinnias for our Farm To School program. If you are able to help with weeding, please sign up here!
BoxTops for Education is changing to a new app-based system. If you buy a product with a BoxTop, still clip it and send it to school! Some products will now say "Scan Your Receipt" on it instead of having a BoxTop. Download the BoxTop app to scan your receipt and credit your purchase to Lincoln Elementary PALS! For more information, check BTFE.com.
