Pre Act Testing
Monday, October 29th
The PreACT is a Mandatory assessment for all currently enrolled Sophomores across the state. Students do not have to sign up for or pay for the exam as the exam will be administered by the school, during the school day.

“The PreACT is a paper-based, multiple-choice test for 10th graders. It uses previously released ACT items and is based on the ACT test blueprint. Since most students first take the ACT in 11th grade, the PreACT gives students, parents, and educators current status of a student’s performance on the 1—36 ACT scale and a predictive score to help show where the student will be after one year of academic progress. Just like the ACT, the PreACT is available as a battery of English, mathematics, reading, and science tests used to assess the current level of the individual student.”

The testing session will last around 3 to 3 1/2 hours.  Testing will begin at 8:05 am and end between 11:30 am and 12:00 pm.  This is an estimated time. No student will be allowed to leave early or be dismissed from the testing session until the scheduled standard testing session is completed.

Please see the document below pertaining specifically to your student’s ACT Profile.

Jagger Beatenhead won our $50 gift card give-away in a random drawing of students who submitted $50 in donations before Sept. 21.

Board Changes
Due to unforeseen difficulties, our Fundraising Chair, Connie Molby, has stepped down. We want to thank Connie for all of her hard work and dedication in planning a great 2018 Talon Walk event. The Glow Dance and Dunking Booth were definitely big hits as new additions to our events.

The Board has reviewed the current bylaws and is in process of appointing an interim Fundraising Chair to serve for the remainder of the school year. The position will go on the ballot this spring along with the other scheduled vacancies.

In preparation for next year, we are looking for an Assistant Treasurer who is interesting in learning the financial protocols and possibly run to be treasurer for a 2019-2021 term. Please email the Lincolnton PTO with interest and questions.

Stay tuned for details on our November teacher appreciation event. Opportunities to appreciate your teachers in October are to be confirmed. Consider sponsoring a Pink Out team in honor of your teacher.

Talon Walk
We are closing in on our goal of $38,000 and still accepting sponsors and pledge donations. We have collected over $30,000 through Friday. Those who sent forms in with pledge commitments but haven’t paid yet will get those reminders this week. Remember, one Elementary student and one MS/HS student who bring in the most donations will win four tickets to a Charlotte Knights baseball game next spring.

Want to give a shout out or idea for improvement on Talon Walk? Please complete the survey below to share your thoughts and ideas. There will be debriefing meetings later in October after school.

FUNd Factory
One of the easiest ways to raise money for our school is by shopping at Harris Teeter or Publix:

Harris Teeter – 3 options to link: (1) Simply tell the cashier to link your VIC card to “Lincoln Charter School East” or #4571, (2) Link online through their website, or (3) Email PTO with your name, phone, VIC Card #, and we can link for you. Your card remains linked all year and you can link up to 5 schools at one time.

Publix – They are no longer using shopper cards. But it’s easy to create an account on publix.com and add “Lincoln Charter School PTO – Denver NC” as a Publix Partner on your account. It will be linked to your phone number and that’s all they need when you check out.
