LOVE FOR LINCOLN FUNDRAISER

Show your LOVE for Lincoln/SOTA II/Coulee Montessori.  Give the school a VALENTINE!

We know that families are busy and your time is valuable.  Instead of asking you to buy, bake, or sell something, the PTO asks you to consider giving a VALENTINE to the school through your donation.

Last school year, the LSM PTO funded over $8,000 in requests for supplies and enrichment opportunities that were not otherwise covered in the school’s budget. That level of funding would not have been possible without your contributions.  Please help us to continue to support our teachers and children in 2018!

For each donation, a Valentine HEART will be displayed at Lincoln.  Help us create a wall of Valentines to show the students and staff how much they are loved!

To give a Valentine to LSM, please fill out a DONATION FORM and return to the school office.  (Paper forms are also available in the school office.)

THANK YOU for supporting our staff and students at Lincoln/SOTA II/Coulee Montessori!

NOVEMBER STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

8TH GRADE- ELLIE HAVERLAND: It is with great pleasure that I nominate Ellie for the November Student of the Month. She is a very bright young lady with numerous possibilities for her future. Ellie is a quiet leader amongst her peers and serves as a role model for others. She is a very hard worker and does what is asked of her to the best of her abilities. Ellie is becoming more confident in her abilities and that reassurance is allowing her to experience even more academic success. I look forward to getting to know more about her as we go through the rest of the school year and see her grow as a student. Ellie is very worthy of being the eighth grade November Student of the Month. Nominated by  Mr. Olson

7TH GRADE- MEGAN ANDEREGG: Megan is always ready to learn and is willing to work with anyone. She always has a smile on her face and is very proactive with her learning and asking questions when she needs a little more to help things make sense. The best part is her courage to ask the hard questions because she isn’t ever the only one that has them. By her willingness she helps her peers understand what to do. She is a huge asset to any classroom and I am lucky to have her be a leader in mine. Nominated by Mrs. Norman

6TH GRADE- PA HOUA VUE:  Pa Houa is deserving of Student of the Month. She is always willing to participate in class regardless of the activity. Pa Houa utilizes her creativity to express herself and to add her personal touch to her responses and even artwork when given the opportunity. Her willingness to learn and ask questions sets an example for others to follow.  Nominated by  Mrs. O’Mara

Currently in the art gallery…..over 400 miniature masterpieces are on exhibit. Most of them are also for sale ($10 or less).  The reception for the artists will be on Wednesday, February 28 from 3:30pm-5:50pm. Miniature refreshments will be served.
