Decorate your Trunk!

Due to COVID, Fall Fest has to look a little different this year.

Instead of our traditional large fundraiser, we are offering a scaled-back FREE event this year, but pre-registration will be required (stay tuned for more details).

In order to make the largest attraction at Fall Fest a success, we need your help. We need 30 families to join us at trunk-or-treat and decorate your trunks and display your car: prizes will go out to Jynx’s favorite 2 trunks!

The details:

  • You DO NOT NEED to provide candy at your trunk, just decorate it, display it, and walk away! (If you have an awesome costume or would rather stay with your vehicle, you are more than welcome to do so)
  • PTA will provide candy at the end of the scavenger hunt in order to minimize contact.
  • Trunks can be setup anytime between 4:30-5:45PM and then will be locked in the parking lot from 5:50pm-8PM on Friday, October 15th (it is too dangerous to pull cars out with kids walking around). If you will not be able to stay the entire time, please consider volunteering for something else at Fall Fest.

We need to get a jump on the trunks, so if you would like to show off your creativity and decorate your trunk for this event, please sign up now! And don’t forget to include the theme of your trunk! Thanks for showing up for our students!

Trunk-or-Treat

Due to COVID, Fall Fest has to look different this year. Instead of our traditional large fundraiser, we are offering a scaled-back FREE Trunk-or-Treat event open to Lincoln Families on Friday, October 15th from 6pm-8pm. Please register your family online before 10/8 to make sure we have enough treat bags for your children.

This event will include:

  • Trunk-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt
  • Fahr-nar the Fortune Teller
  • DJ
  • Food Trucks
  • …and more!

We will be accepting bagged candy donations, just send the candy with your student to school. The classroom that collects the most candy before 10/8 earns an in-class dance party with JYNX THE LYNX!

Come in a costume and dance the night away with your friends! Hit up the trunks, buy some food, grab some pics: you do you!

We need 30 families to decorate your trunks at trunk-or-treat and display your car: prizes will go out to the winning trunks!

This event can’t happen without you! Sign up to volunteer for an hour and then enjoy the rest of the event with your family!

Due to COVID, we need to change the traditional Trunk-or-Treat to a Trunk-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt! How it works: 

  • PTA will provide a scavenger hunt list to every family who enters the event. The scavenger hunt list will include a time for your family to enter the trunk-or-treat queue in order to reduce congestion to that area.
  • Walk around the event with your family (enjoy the DJ, Food Trucks, and Fahr-nar the Fortune Teller) until the time on your scavenger hunt list.
  • At the time listed on your scavenger hunt list, enter the Trunk or Treat Line at trunk number 1 and start your hunt!
  • In order to minimize contact, no candy will be given out at the individual trunks, but families will need to visually find something located in each trunk.
  • At the end of the hunt, families will show their scavenger hunt lists to the volunteers, and the will receive their bag of treats*.

*PRE-REGISTRATION for this event is strongly encouraged by 10/8. Treat bags will be pre-assembled the week before, and we have no way of knowing how many siblings who will be joining your Lincoln student WITHOUT your registration. Treat bags will have candy in them, unless you opt for a treat-only option for your child in your registration. If you have any allergies, food sensitivities or religious restrictions, please specify this in your pre-registration.

Organizing a large event like this requires a lot of organization, money, and time behind-the-scenes, and we really appreciate your collaboration and pre-registration in this effort for us to safely get together with our Lincoln families! We are so excited to SEE YOU!

**This is not a drop-off event. All children need to be accompanied by an adult.**

Unable to volunteer but still want to support this event? You can provide a monetary donation here before 10/8.

We will be adhering to current IDPH COVID guidelines for outdoor sporting events.

Currently, masks do not need to be worn for outdoor activities.

Please bring your own water.

Lincoln’s GRIT Games

Welcome to Lincoln’s Grit Games! A chance for your family (or your Pod) to compete in a contest designed to stretch your physical and mental skills to develop GRIT. This free event occurs on September 16th and is open to all Lincoln Families. The Grit Games DO require pre-registration, just select the time that works best for you before September 15th!

SHOW US YOUR GRIT and Register now!

Do you have what it takes to persevere?

In order to make the Grit Games a reality… we need help from volunteers like you! Register to run the race with your family or friends, and then sign up to volunteer for a shift! It’s a win/win!

How it works: 

  • Select your preferred time slot and register your team with the total amount of players participating in the game.
  • The Grit Games will be completely outdoors, and is good for kids & adults of all ages (it will involve mental and physical challenges. If you have younger kiddos, they may need adult help with reading/problem solving)
  • All teams must have between 2-10* participants. Your team can include whoever you’re comfortable being with in a close proximity and sharing tools.
    • You can sign up as a family and select the number of people participating on the registration page.
    • OR, combine multiple families and/or friends and select the number of people participating on the registration page.
  • Please show up 5 minutes prior to the time of your registration slot. Due to COVID, we will not be able to accommodate teams that do not show up on time
  • The Grit Games should take around 20 minutes to complete.

We will be adhering to current IDPH COVID guidelines for outdoor sporting events. Currently, masks do not need to be worn for outdoor activities.

  • Please bring your own water.
  • Please wear athletic clothes (Grade-Level Shirts) that you can get dirty and/or wet.

*10 is not a “hard” cap… feel free to add more children to your team; however, stations are geared towards groups of 4-6 players, so may be easier or harder with more students participating.
