Calling all Proctors – EOG Season is upon us!
Calling all proctors!  It is that time of the year again.  LCS is in need of volunteers to help proctor EOGs and EOCs from May 13 – May 16, 2019.  If you are available, please complete the Proctor Sign Up.  Thank you in advance for helping to make this testing season a successful one!  

If you have any questions, please contact  Mr. Bealer.

All Pro Dads
Our final All Pro Dads breakfast of the academic year will be held this Friday, April 26th, in the MS/HS multi-purpose room. We will begin this breakfast at 7:00 a.m. (slightly earlier than our usual start time). We will be having a HUGE celebration of the All Pro Dads initiative, what it means to be a truly active role model, and a time to recognize the overall importance male role models play, especially in the development of a child. There will be raffle items, and a wonderful homemade breakfast provided by some of our own LCS Dads (thank you)! Come hungry, happy, and full of energy to spend in fellowship with our All Pro LCS Dad’s community.  Please use the athletic entrance upon arrival. As always, you can RSVP to Ryan Smith or Keith Hain.

Engaged Eagles
We hope that you had a relaxing spring break, and noted that there are less than 3 weeks left until the End of Grade Testing!  The week of May 13th -17th is a busy week of EOG volunteer test proctoring. This may not be your first choice for a volunteer position, but it may very well be the most important. The state mandates that there is one proctor in each classroom. Please consider proctoring for at least one test. Every single classroom needs a volunteer proctor with each day needing up to 25 volunteers! This may be your last chance to reach your goal of 30 volunteer hours for your family. EOG signup here.

Tonight is the rising 6th-grade ice cream social. We have several opening for volunteers to assist for an hour. Sign up here.

This Friday night is the Spring Festival held on the Lincolnton campus. Make it a family night by volunteering at an art station and enjoying the evening with your Eagle family.  Find more information here.

Thank you to all the Engaged Eagles who continue to volunteer this year, working hard on the 30-hour challenge. Together we can accomplish more than we can alone.  Find more details for all volunteer opportunities here: The Lincoln Charter Volunteer Webpage.
