Dear Lincoln Eliot Families,
I was visiting a second grade class on Friday and found students reciting this part of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior‚Äôs ‘I Have Dream’ speech:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
In fifth grade, I observed students sharing what they know about Martin Luther King Jr., what they want to know or what questions they would have for him, and what they have learned over the years about his life and influence. ¬†¬†The lessons about Dr. King were¬†woven into the resilience and survival unit.¬† Students across the school were thinking deeply about Dr. King‚Äôs vision for equity and equality in our country.
The PTO held their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening.¬† The rolling agenda and minutes can be found on the PTO web page and and here.¬† The next meeting is February 7th and all are welcome.¬† It is a great way to meet other parents and build school community.
The next PTO sponsored event is Movie Night!¬† Parents and children are invited to watch a movie in the gym the evening of Friday, February 3rd.¬† More information to follow.
Lincoln-Eliot 5th Grade Launch Fundraiser – February 10th from 6-10pm. The 5th graders are working towards an end-of the year camping trip and graduation ceremony and need to raise money to offset the cost – this is the first of four fundraisers. Please spread the word, bring your children and friends to jump and have fun and please mention Lincoln Eliot when you pay for your tickets at the door – 25% of the tickets sales on February 10th will go directly to the 5th grade fund!!!
