Announcements and volunteer opportunities!

Thank you so much to everyone who  contributed to the last-minute Teacher Appreciation pizza buffet yesterday. We provided 6 Venezia’s party pizzas (when Venezia’s heard the reason, they gave me a 10% discount. Thank you, Venezia’s!) and it was a hit of course.  The sign up filled almost immediately, and many people brought in donations beyond that.

I will be purchasing extra treats for the teachers’ lounge from any donations that have been made for the duration of the walk-out. Although we are always grateful for our teachers, it’s wonderful to see our Lincoln Prep community express it particularly during this time. If you would like to assist, please email me, Terry Burget at I would very much appreciate some help in bringing items in! Also, kindly pass along the word to your Lincoln Prep friends. Many people do not read my newsletter or blog. Please let them know what we are doing and tell them they are encouraged to come up with ideas and implement them to show our appreciation to our teachers during the walk-out.

Just a friendly reminder on the subject of buffets…..Many crock pots have collected in the front office. If one of them belongs to you, thank you for bringing whatever was enjoyed, and come get your crockpot!

On the topic of showing our teachers gratitude, I would like to remind you all that Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching. It is from May 7th to May 11th. If you would like to treat your devoted, hard-working teachers to something special, you may stop in and view the teacher wish lists in the LP front office.

Our last social event of the school year has been scheduled for Saturday, May 19th at Sunsplash in Mesa from 11am to close. Tracy Vickery has negotiated a ticket price of $22 per person (40% off regular weekend price) if they are bought as a group. In order to get the discounted price, you must go to her Sign Up Genius for to reserve your tickets here! If you signed up for tickets, please drop off your money, labeled with your name and number of tickets purchased, at the LP front desk ASAP.

We will have our final used uniform sale for the year next week, on Wednesday, May 2nd from 5:00pm to 5:45pm. We will be on campus with polo shirts, pants, and shorts. There is a limited supply of oxford shirts and cardigans. Prices and information can be obtained on the Lincoln Prep PSO website, Used Uniform page here.

It is that time again! We are in need of up to 17 parent volunteer proctors daily during final exam week. Final exams will be on Tuesday May 22nd, Wednesday May 23rd, and Thursday May 24th. Proctoring for our teachers is easy, fun, and truly a gift to our valuable teachers. You can read more information and sign up here.

In other volunteers needs, Christina Burke has published the Sign Up Genius for the Spring Sports Banquet that takes place on Tuesday, May 8th, at 6pm. Please sign up to assist her here.

I hope you have a great weekend. Thank you again for supporting our teachers. If you see any teachers around, thank them for being here. We are so grateful to see them here!
