Over the summer, we installed a brand-new sensory path in our school hallways. The total investment was $3000, or $1500 per floor!
WHY A SENSORY PATH?
Not only does this make our hallways more fun, but it's already having a positive impact. Teachers are telling us that kids seem more focused and less restless when they use the sensory path to move from one class to another. It's like a mini-brain break for them!
Come one, come all to the Lincoln PTO's movie opening night fundraiser! It was a night filled with fun and excitement for the whole family. We had kids and families dress up in their favorite costumes and as they transported to a magical world on the big screen.
Not only did they enjoy a great movie, but everyone also have the opportunity to contribute to the Lincoln PTO with raffle prizes, costume contests, and more. Amazing prizes while supporting a great cause!
Thank you to everyone who participants and to all the local small businesses who helped sponsor a raffle prize!
We believe it's important for children to see themselves represented in the books they read. We made it a priority to purchase books that showcase diversity for each classroom and our library. Each classroom received 5 new books. And our wonderful librarian Ms. Meisinger shared photos of the books that were purchased for each classroom.
Thanks for the generosity of parents and families who contribute to the PTO's mission, our students will have access to books that feature characters from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and identities. These books will not only help our students learn about different perspectives and experiences, but they will also continue to foster empathy and understanding within our Lincoln community!
Bike Walk Oak Park recently presented at our PTO meeting about the importance of bike and walking safety around Lincoln Elementary. Presenters Rachel Poretsky and Sylvia Schweri shared valuable information about how to keep our children and families safe while walking or biking in our community.
Their presentation highlighted the benefits of active transportation, while also emphasizing the need for caution and careful planing.
By promoting safe and sustainable modes of transportation, Bike Walk Oak Park is helping to create a healthier, more vibrant community for us all.
