Lincoln Street School Update
This year, Lincoln Street School staff has put extra effort into building community. Classrooms are discussing what it means to be part of a community, the roles different people can play within a community, and what one can do to make a community better. Mrs. Smith’s Heroes for Harvey project lended itself perfectly to this endeavor.
Teaching our students about our neighbors and being a good neighbor is something we will do to grow our community. We are lucky to have many students walk or ride a bike or scooter to school regularly. This provides many opportunities for students and parents to interact with each other and our neighbors which builds relationships and makes connections. Please remind your children that they are both members of the Exeter community and representatives of the Lincoln Street School, and being respectful of our neighbors and their property is part of being a good neighbor. Also, when parking a car, I would like to remind parents that though Lincoln Street can be a busy place, our neighbors do still need access to the road and their driveway. Please be considerate of each other and our neighbors to model the community mindedness we wish to teach our children. Exeter is a great place to live and work, and by teaching our children these essential skills, it will make it even better.
3rd Grade students are invited to participate in the 21st Annual Cornfield Character Celebration! Students can make a Cornfield Character and be creative! You can use any materials such as wood, clothing, wigs, Styrofoam, cotton, hay, newspaper, stockings, and costumes. No violent characters, please. You must think of the idea and create the character yourself, with the help of your parents, if needed. Your character must be given a name. Think about whom you want your character to be. Your character must be able to stand by itself, or must be sitting on something. It should be sturdy so that it does not blow over in the wind.
Parents, please drop off the character on Thursday, October 26th from 3:30-4:30 OR Friday, October 27th from 7:45-8:30am. If you are dropping off your character on Thursday, please bring it INSIDE the school. There is no place to store the characters, so please DO NOT drop them off before Thursday at 3:00pm. The characters must be picked up by 4:00 on Friday The characters will be moved inside at 3:30pm. The Cornfield Characters may not ride the bus!
Please see the paper form sent home with your child for more information.
