LincolnGLOWS Window Walk

We want to decorate Lincoln windows with art for a Window Walk in December! If you want to see what we are attempting to accomplish, please visit the outdoor classroom after 5:00pm (windows are meant to be viewed from the OUTSIDE at night), or google image search “window wanderland”

If you would like to design and decorate a window with your family or service organization, please click here!

All participants registered before 12/6 will receive a pre-measured window template (sized slightly larger than Lincoln’s windows) to decorate. You can use tracing paper, tissue paper, streamers, construction paper, cardstock, markers, crayons, plastic tablecloths, etc… The only stipulations are that it needs to be school-appropriate, no business advertisements, and cannot be permanently installed. (Scotch tape is best to affix it to the windows). After you have made your creation… you can install it on Friday, December 10th between 4-6pm, or you can turn in your pre-assembled template and we can hang it for you on 12/10!

After you have registered, we will be contacting you with more information! If you have questions, please feel free to email us at lincoln202pta@gmail.com! Thank you SO MUCH for your support and helping us make Lincoln GLOW!!!

Help us make LincolnGLOW!

Updating your holiday lights this year and looking for a place to donate your old lights that still work? Help us light up Lincoln for an art and music event that will be open to families, friends, and the community in December!

We will be collecting new* and gently used outdoor UL-rated lights, timers, and extension cords at Lincoln during the month of November. Please bring any working lights to Lincoln Elementary school and drop them in the Gray Bin marked PTA outside of the front entry.

For more information on the Light Donation Drive, feel free to email us at lincoln202pta@gmail.com

*Looking to donate new lights? Please consider purchasing LEDs as they are more energy-efficient.

Read-A-Thon At Lincoln!

We will be starting on:
10-11-2021

Welcome Parents, Students, and Friends to our Read-a-thon!

This year, we are excited to announce that we will hold a Read-a-thon fundraiser. Our Read-a-thon is a program that brings students together with family and friends to encourage reading and to build literacy skills. It is the PERFECT segue into our GROWTH MINDSET WEEK! The main focus of the Read-a-thon is for everyone to know we are committed to improving reading skills and growing our fantastic elastic brains: turning “I can’t” into “I’ll try”.

Our Read-a-thon will start Monday, October 11th, 2021.

We encourage you to activate your reader’s account today by clicking on https://www.read-a-thon.com/readers/r/sJyJwT and following the simple instructions. (search by teacher or by code you received from your teacher)

We understand that, as parents, you have high expectations for the quality of your child’s education but also have limited time. That’s why we chose to hold a Read-a-thon. You will find this to be the easiest fundraiser possible. By simply activating your reader’s personal page and using the promotional tools found there, friends and family anywhere in the world can show their support for your reader by making a donation to your Read-a-thon.

But wait, there’s more! 

The Top 3 Readers and the Top 3 Earners at Lincoln will win a prize!

Top 3 Readers

  • First Place: a 2-hour activity pass for you and a friend at Sky Zone Joliet
  • Second Place: a Pizza party for you and your family delivered by Jynx the Lynx
  • Third Place: Two games of bowling at Plainfield Lanes

  • First Place: a 2-hour activity pass for you and a friend at Sky Zone Joliet

  • Third Place: Two games of bowling at Plainfield Lanes

Financially, we are attempting to raise $10,000 in funds that will go towards: LincolnGrows enhancements for our outdoor classroom (including additional seating), D.E.I. initiatives that will support our physically, mentally, and emotionally diverse Lincoln Community*, events supporting our core value weeks, and school supplies requested to support staff and students alike.

Your involvement in the Read-a-thon will help your child develop a lasting love of reading. Help us encourage our children to expand what they think is possible during Growth Mindset Week as we expand their brains through reading! We hope each one of you will activate your child’s personal page the day your child brings home their paperwork.
