Our next Teacher Appreciation lunch is coming up on Wednesday, September 26th. The theme is Game Day Party, to coincide with football season! Please take a moment to click on the link here, and sign up to bring something yummy for the teachers. I know they will really appreciate it!

Bowling this Friday

On Friday, September 7, from 6-7:30pm, we are having a Family Fun Night of bowling at Fat Cats, located at 4321 E. Baseline Rd., Gilbert. For the price of $17.17, you get 90 minutes of bowling, one soda, two slices of pizza, shoe rental, and tax is included. *Please note-the venue requires payment in advance, so please read the signup for details. To view the signup, click here. By the way, a little bird told me that la boule catastrophique, or LBC, for short, could be making an appearance at the bowling alley. If you have an 11th grader, you must ask them about who LBC is!

8th Grade Field Trip

Hello Lincoln Prep families-I hope you had a relaxing Labor Day weekend. Now that we are back in school today, it is time for you to take another look at your calendar. We have the 8th grade field trip tomorrow, and so far, we only have one person signed up! I know we can get two more parents of 8th graders, that would like spending the day with their student at the MIM. Please consider doing so, I’d hate to sign up myself, and take a spot that a parent of an 8th grader could have. Please click here, to view the signup. Thank you.

Teacher Appreciation

We are having our first Teacher Appreciation meal of the year. The theme is Around the World. This is your chance to bring a favorite ethnic dish or side dish. Please click on the link here to sign up, and to view the details. Thank you for your support of our teachers.

 

We are getting busy now

Good afternoon parents. As I write this, I am thinking about all of the activities that will be coming up this next week, hang on tight, it’s going to get busy! The first activity that will take place, is on Tuesday, August 21st. We are going to be having our first ever Mom’s Night Out! It will be held at The Wild Vine Uncorked, 4920 S. Gilbert Rd., #3, at 6:30 pm. Whether you drink wine, or not, come, mingle, and meet LP parents, it’s sure to be a good time.  On Wednesday, the 22nd, we will be having our first PSO meeting, at 8am, in the LP conference room. This is a great chance to meet the PSO officers,  committee leads,  and find out the ways we will be building community. That Wednesday is also picture day, so make sure your students are there, and ready to say, “cheese.” Thursday night, the 23rd, is Curriculum Night, at 6:30pm. If you are interested in hearing, directly from the teachers, more about what your student is learning, then you do not want to miss out. At the end of the month, on Friday, August 31st, we will be having our first Family Fun Night of the year. Bring your students or the whole family, to Nekter Juice Bar, located at 4041 S. Gilbert Rd.,#2, from 3-8 pm. Mention Lincoln Prep when you place your order, and 20% of the proceeds will go to Lincoln Prep. We have the chance to increase our profits during the event by “liking” them on Face Book, checking in with Face Book, or by posting a photo on Instagram at #ocotillonektar. You can even do all three!

Welcome Back Lincoln Prep Families

It was nice seeing so many familiar faces, as well as new ones, at Meet the Teacher Night. The night was a huge success, in part, due to our many parent volunteers that gave of their time to hand out schedules, etc. I wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to those volunteers for stepping up. Our school activities often times depend upon our parent volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and build community, here at Lincoln Prep. Speaking of meeting people, our Meet and Greet we had at The Wildflower Bread Company was a success! Many of those that came, expressed an interest in having these types of gatherings on a more regular basis. We will certainly take that suggestion to heart. Speak of meetings, did you see that this Monday, in the lunchroom, we are having a training session? If you’d like to volunteer in the lunchroom, I would highly recommend coming, if possible, to learn about the new procedures we will be using this upcoming year. If volunteering in the lunchroom is not your thing, you will  have another opportunity to meet people at our first PSO meeting. It will be held on August 22nd, in the Prep conference room, right after drop off, starting at 8am.
