Treat Friday – February 25th!

During lunch time, a cool treat will be available for purchase. Treats do NOT need to be ordered in advance. Your child can bring $1 with their lunch (or in a baggie to turn in to their teacher). Only one treat per student.

Spirit Wear – Friday, February 25th!

Wear your Spirit Shirts to school this Friday February 25th! Your student will be allowed to wear the school-approved Spirit Wear T-Shirt on Friday, February 25th (prior years’ Spirit Wear t-shirts may also be worn).

Birthday Book Club – February 25th!

On Friday, February 25th we will celebrate February birthdays.

Lincoln honors birthdays through the Birthday Book Club instead of in-class birthday celebrations. All students with a February birthday will receive a special treat, but students who have made a donation also get to put their name on a special sticker in a book that will forever be a part of the library as a remembrance of their special day. Parents are allowed to come witness and share in their child’s Birthday Book Club experience at 2pm even if they are not signed up to volunteer for the event.

To make a donation please visit https://archwaylincolnpso.com/store/. Select “Birthday Book Club” and be sure to enter your child’s name/grade/section.

For more information about Birthday Book Club check out our Birthday Book Club page on the PSO website at https://archwaylincolnpso.com/library/birthday-book-club/

Designers & Decoraters Wanted

color-paint-palette-wall-paintingPSO is looking for 5-6 individuals to form a “Design on a Dime” committee to work with Mrs. Atolagbe to help redecorate and refurnish the teacher’s lounge.

Over the summer the lounge will undergo construction to enlarge the space. We do not yet know the timing for the end of construction so the timing for this committee is to be decided. We hope to start work in late July or early August.

If this is something you would be interested in helping with, please email Cathy Post at pso@archwaylincoln.org.

Thank You Saturday Volunteers!

thank youArchway Lincoln PSO would like to thank all the parent volunteers who came out on Saturday to help put together reading packets, move and sort books, deliver workbooks to classrooms, and the countless other tasks you tackled.

Ms. Infantolino was holding back tears as the last of us left on Saturday. She was incredibly grateful for the generosity of your time and your hard work and determination to make sure our teachers and students start off the school year successfully!

There is still much that needs to be done, though! In the coming week, we will identify other tasks that must be completed and will send out links to Sign-Up Genius for them, so keep your eye on your inbox and if you can help, we’d love to have you!

With sincerest thanks,
Archway Lincoln PSO
