Student Life
College Week

All students are encouraged to take part in College Week.  Students may wear college apparel in place of LCS Uniform/Dress Code.

Veterans Day Program
Friday, November 10th
Doors open at 12:45pm – program will end by 2:15pm
This year’s program will offer every Lincoln Charter student the opportunity to interact with a Veteran.  The Program will begin with a traditional program in Machado Gymnasium for Veterans and their student host.  Following the program Veterans and students will transition to smaller sessions that will allow students to participate in a Q&A session with Veterans.  The theme of the event is All-American and will include an All-American snack for everyone!  We are encouraging staff and students to dress in Red, White and Blue (must meet HS Dress Code and be respectful of the flag).  

Click here to register to host a Veteran(s).  Register by November 8th at 3:00pm.

In addition to the annual program, Lincoln Charter is partnering with the USO and Operation Phone Home to collect funds to support phone calls home during the holidays.  The goal is for every student and staff member to donate $1.00 to the program.  Funds will be collected during the event on November 10th.  This is a great way for us to honor those that are currently serving abroad.

PTO
Box Top Contest
The Fall Box Top Contest was a HUGE success and we couldn’t have done it without you! There were over 12,000 box tops turned in, earning $1,200 for our school!

Congratulations to Mrs. Boner’s 2nd grade class for winning our first contest of the year and ice cream sundaes for their class. While Middle School did not meet their collection goal, they did earn a nest point for each box top turned in!

With last year’s funds, we were able to update the sound system for the Lower School Gym and purchase new PE equipment for Middle School. This year we hope to upgrade the Walkie Talkies for the Lower School and purchase benches/picnic tables for our campus.

Start clipping those Tops to get ready for our next contest in January.

Teacher Breakfast Tomorrow Morning
Our monthly Teacher Breakfast will be provided tomorrow morning for all K-12 teachers. Your donations make this possible and it’s always a wonderful treat for the staff! These are provided the second Wednesday of each month.
