Notes and Points of Interest for this week…

Thank you to everyone who stopped to say hello to us at the PSO table on Curriculum Night! We really enjoyed seeing you and appreciate you visiting us.

We very much hope that you and your family plan on attending the Lincoln Prep back to school ice skating social at AZ ICE Gilbert on Saturday, August 26th from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm. If you haven’t been to the ice rink, you have been missing the best kept secret in our 107 degree town! Come and socialize with other Lincoln Families. Teachers have been invited as well. There is a restaurant on site serving up some pretty fabulous cheesesteak sandwiches and much more. Drop your students off and head to the grill for date night.

For those of you who did not have an opportunity to visit the PSO table on Curriculum Night, please come and see us at one of our general PSO meetings within the next couple of weeks. The first meeting will be Wednesday, August 30th at 7:45 am, after drop-off. For those of you who cannot attend morning meetings, we have scheduled an evening meeting on Wednesday, September 13th at 7:00 pm at Lincoln Prep.

Come and hear about our different committees and activities that you can be a part of. See which committees are still in need of members. Information on what the responsibilities of your committee are will be distributed. Are you not on a committee? Have you not been contacted to be on a committee yet? No problem! Show up and sign up for one. We would love to have you and hear about what you would like to do.

Thank you to all of the 8th grade parent volunteers who signed up to chaperone the 8th grade field trip to the Musical Instrument Museum. Dr. Rodriguez will be contacting you shortly, if not already, with additional information.

As always, thank you to our lunch volunteers. It has been fun seeing new faces, as well as our faithful lunch veterans. You Ladies have been awesome! We are in need of volunteers to fill September. Please help us by not only signing up, but by bringing a friend or encouraging others to volunteer. All volunteers must be fingerprinted and cleared. Please sign up here.

Lastly for this week, other events that you won’t want to miss include the Great Hearts Back to School Bash at Chase Field. The Arizona Diamondbacks will take on the San Francisco Giants. Great Hearts families and friends will enjoy discounted tickets, and $5 from each ticket will be donated back to our school. You can sign up at GROUPMATICS.EVENTS/EVENT/BACKTOSCHOOL. You can also email cblackwell@dbacks.com or call (602) 462-4109 with questions.

The Great Hearts Gala is set for September 23rd. It is a fundraiser for teacher professional development. Funds raised at the Gala will help us address the critical need for more high-quality teachers in Arizona and will help provide professional development programs for over 1,000 teachers throughout the Valley.
