Several important announcements to start the semester….

Hello and welcome back! I hope your children enjoyed their first week of the new semester. If you are new to Lincoln Prep, great for you! We are so happy to have you here. I look forward to meeting you at our first general PSO meeting on Wednesday, January 17th after morning drop off. We will be discussing the semester’s calendar, events, fundraising, recruitment of new volunteers, and any other issues you would like to discuss. This is still a very new PSO. It was created at the beginning of the school year and we are off to a great start but still have a lot of work to do. My goal as PSO President this year is to build the PSO. We would love to hear your ideas and help you implement them. See you there!

There are several events coming up within the next couple of weeks. Our first social event of the year will be an ice skating social held at AZ ICE Gilbert from 7pm to 9:30pm, on Saturday, January 27th. Tickets will be sold at the door and will be $10. This includes skate rental. Look for the Lincoln Prep table in the lobby to purchase your tickets. The last ice skating social was very successful. If you are a new family, this is a great way to meet your kids’ new friends and other families. We look forward to seeing you all there!

On Wednesday, January 24th from 10:30am to 12:30 pm, there will be a fingerprinting event here at Lincoln Prep. This is a great opportunity to get your fingerprints taken so that you can get clearance to volunteer at our school. Whether you want to volunteer on campus, or attend a field trip with your children, you must have fingerprint clearance. I highly recommend you attend this event, and get involved at Lincoln Prep. For additional information regarding fingerprinting, visit our ‘Volunteer’ page.

During the fingerprint event, there will be a used uniform sale going on here at Lincoln Prep. If you are a new family and need a couple of additional items, or you are an established family whose children have outgrown just about everything, you can shop and get your fingerprints taken at the same time. This is a perfect opportunity for all of those multitaskers out there! To view the sales announcement from Lincoln Prep’s Used Uniform Committee Chair or for more information about used uniforms and pricing, visit our ‘Used Uniforms’ page.

After you get your fingerprint clearance, we’d love to see you sign up for lunch, as the sign up is still looking rather spotty. You’ve heard for years now that lunch cannot continue without the support of our very generous volunteers. This is not an urban legend. We really do need your help to continue our lunch program! Please take a look at the sign up and fill in where you can. If you have not signed up to work lunch for a while, we would be happy to walk you through it. If you never volunteered for lunch, likewise, we are willing to train you. It is fast, easy and just a really nice way to get to know the students that your children are friends with. Please view the sign up for lunch volunteering here.

Have a great week! As always, you can contact me, Terry Burget at PSO@LincolnPrep.org. I also encourage you to  sign up for updates by clicking the link in the right-hand margin while you are here.
