  Preparing for Winter Weather

Now that the cold weather is on its way, dressing your child appropriately for the weather is important . Students will be sent out for recess, weather permitting. It is important for the students to go out in the fresh air and exercise.  District policy has students going outside when the temperature is 10ºF or higher, including wind chill. 
  Fall Parties
We will no longer be dressing in costumes and having a parade for Halloween.   Instead, we will have Fall Parties for the students in their classrooms. You will receive more information from your child's teacher.
Save your Pop Tabs!!!
This year Lincoln Elementary is once again asking students to save pop tabs for Ronald McDonald’s House.  The Pop Tab Drive will end at the close of the 2017-18 school year. Last year, we successfully donated over 376lbs!  Way to go Lincoln Leopards!  Let’s see if we can beat our amount from last year!

To make it more fun we are having Grade Level Wars.  The grade level who brings in the most will win a popcorn party at the end of the school year from Mrs. McClelland!  Student’s are being asked to collect tabs and then bring them to school during music time.  Save up a for a couple of weeks or until the end of the year, it is your choice.

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities Chicago/Northern Illinois:
To care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion and a sense of community.  RMHC-CNI keeps families of hospitalized children together in a ‘home away from home’.
Let’s help this charity and pull some pop tabs together!
Thank you for all your support,
Mrs. Mihcal McClelland - Music

School Board Updates


September 18th Board Meeting:

  • There was a presentation on the bond restructuring from PMA/Stifel at Monday night's school board meeting. This has been reviewed in the Business Services Committee as well. It is in essence similar to refinancing a mortgage to keep payments consistent in the coming years, instead of doubling by 2021 and impacting our tax rate for the community. You can view the presentation on BoardDocs, or click here.
  • District administration submits annually a report of student enrollment after the 6th day of student attendance. The report allow the district to review enrollment trends. Here are the total 6-day enrollment number trends, inclusive of early childhood:
                       2017: 8,163 
                       2016: 8,197
                       2015: 8,124
  • The Business Services Committee solicited demography study proposals in the spring in order to help us attain solid baseline enrollment data and make projects about the District’s future growth and enrollment patterns.  After reviewing the submitted proposals, the Business Services Committee discussed the benefits of not only having the demographic information, but also access to detailed mapping applications for current and long-term future uses.  Based on that mapping need, the Business Services Committee recommended and the Board approved the proposal from Davis Demographics. 

October 16th Board Meeting:

This month the board received Scorecards from each school and each of our central office departments. These scorecards show how the work of our schools and district is aligned to the strategic plan. They also received a review of the district's progress on the strategic plan
