Dear Lincoln Families,
The 2017-2018 school year is off to a great start even with our minor hiccup with the burnt toast on day one! We started our school year with a fundraiser for our Lincoln Gratitude Project. The purpose of the fundraiser was to get a Gratitude Journal in the hands of every Lincoln scholar. Our staff and scholars start every day writing what they are grateful for in a journal. This practice has allowed the Lincoln community to focus on health and happiness. I am personally grateful for the support Syracuse businesses showed Lincoln during this fundraiser. Apizza Regionale, Original Grain and 0 Yoga stepped up and embraced our fundraising efforts.
I would like to thank all of our families who attended the Open House this year, we had a wonderful turnout with so many of our families attending. I would like to recognize a special member of the Lincoln family for their recent generosity. After my presentation at the Open House I was asked how families could help with the Gratitude Project to which I responded that we were still in need of monetary donations. This
particular person came to Lincoln the following Monday and handed me $500 toward the Gratitude Project. Another Lincoln family member came in an asked if they could help out during the school day and for various afterschool events which of course I said yes to. These acts remind me that we have so much to be grateful for! Thank you to all the Lincoln families that contributed in your own special ways.
