The PSO is looking for you!

The PSO has begun taking names of those that are interested in being a part of the PSO for the next school year. If you are interested in what positions are available, or want to get involved serving on a committee, please email Laura Centeno: Laura@fullarmorrealty.com

Teacher Appreciation Collage

Below you will see what the Lincoln Prep collage looks like that we made for our teachers, in celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week.  This is such a small measure of thanks compared to the immense love and effort our teachers pour into our students every day. They are the heart and soul of our community. Thank you, teachers, for all you do! Thank you to everyone that participated and to Eryn Watson for creating our collage! Not only did the teachers get to see this collage, the PSO also gifted all of the teachers and staff a virtual gift card from Grub Hub.TA collage

Teacher Appreciation Week

Lincoln Prep Community- we have a great way to get your students involved during Teacher Appreciation week. If we could take snapshots of our students, having each of them holding up a sign, with one word on it, then form it into a collage, and send it to the teachers, they sure would love it! The message is as follows: On behalf of the LPA students we appreciate our teachers. We miss you and send a virtual hug. Go Lightning!#CommunityInvestment. I will add a photo of something similar to the end product to give you an idea of what it will look like. Be creative with the lettering, as long as the word stands out. Please send your photos to Eryn Watson at watsonpartyof5@yahoo.com, so that she can compose the collage. We need a total of 21 kids to do this. I know we can!🎉

Pictures needed for Yearbook

Good morning Lincoln Prep families- Ms. Tomasson needs pictures for the yearbook. If you happen to have pictures of any school related activities, or sporting events that took place before or during Spring Break, please send them to her. Her email is: btomasson@lincolnprep.org.  As a reminder, please go to the Parent Portal to order your yearbook. Pre-orders became available on March 23rd, and go until April 13th.

Locker tags needed

The perfect project for students and adults alike, would be creating locker tags. We still have 3 teams that need volunteers to work on them.  Middle School Track, Middle School Swim, and High School Beach Volleyball. All of the tags have been printed already. They need to be cut, names written on them, lamination, and a second cutting. Please contact Beth Watkins, at bethwatkins2013@gmail.com, if you have any questions or would like to get started. Thanks for all of your help, the student athletes love getting recognition from these.

PSO and Lunch

Instead of postponing the PSO meeting until later in the month, it will be rescheduled to April 15th. As the lunchroom lead, I have also contacted Lunchkins, letting them know to cancel all lunches for next week. Stay safe and Go Lightning!

Dodgeball Tournament

On February 28th, we will be having a dodgeball tournament during the Pep Rally Assembly, to benefit the Senior’s trip to Washington, D.C.  Teams of 5 will compete to be named the best dodgeball team at Lincoln Prep, and the chance to earn a pizza lunch with their teacher of choice. Faculty members may join the tournament with a maximum of one faculty member per team.

There will be a maximum of 16 teams in the tournament. Teams will be accepted on a first come basis. In order to be accepted, the team must be completely registered, (registration form completed, donation received by Ms. Tomasson, all permission slips filled out and turned in).

Dress code: Team members will wear their LPA uniform as the tournament will take place during the school day. (It is highly encouraged to wear shorts, in order to maximize mobility). Students should change into tennis shoes before the tournament.

Rules: 6 dodgeballs per game, 5 minute games with winning team moving on

*If at 5 minutes, both teams have players still in the game, the team with the most standing players will move on

Ways to get out: A player gets hit by a live ball that has NOT hit the ground yet,

A player throws a ball that is caught by the opposite team,

A player crossing the center line

If a player catches a ball, the first player out on their team can rejoin the game

Please email Ms. Tomasson with any questions you may have at btomasson@lincolnprep.org

 

Common Cents

The trip for the Seniors to Washington, DC is coming up next month, so we’ll be supporting them through a program called Common Cents, from February 18-28th. Each section will have a container with a goal of earning the most points. Students can contribute to the containers during lunch/lyceum on each of these days. The containers will be lined up outside the faculty office and totals will be updated daily. The money will be donated to the senior trip. The middle school section and the high school section with the most points at the end will be announced during the Dodgeball Tournament on the 28th, and will earn an ice cream social. Here are how the points are calculated:

1 penny = + 1 point      1 nickle = – ( minus)  5 points     1 dime = -( minus) 10 points    1 quarter = (minus) –  25 points

1 dollar = + 100 points. Let your student bring in their loose change for a great cause!

Any questions? Please email Ms. Tomasson at btomasson@lincolnprep.org
