Dear Lincoln Eliot Families,
Today was the first annual Live Like Laura 5K. ¬†It was a sparkling day full of community spirit. ¬†Laura‚Äôs family, Lincoln Eliot staff, friends from close and far were there to run/walk in her memory. ¬†All money raised will go to support cardiac research at Mass General Hospital. ¬†
Fifth graders arrived home on Friday after two nights at Camp Wing. ¬†Students looked tired and happy – all signs that they had a great time. ¬†Be sure to check out the lost and found for unclaimed items from camp.
We had our all school assembly on the topic of voice volume on Tuesday. ¬†Students observed videos of their teachers demonstrating ¬†different voice volumes. ¬†Teachers have been reviewing matching the appropriate voice volume to settings around the school.
Thanks to Jeanne Conley for providing K-2 parents with wonderful reading and writing resources at the Light the Fire for Literacy event this past week. ¬†This free event was funded by the Title 1 Program. ¬†We encourage all parents to make reading a priority over the summer so that students will maintain or strengthen their current level of reading. ¬†
Remember to return all library books!
The PTO has two reminders.
There is a PTO meeting on Tuesday, June 6th ¬†from 6:30-7:30pm in the LE Cafeteria
Save The Date: End of Year Picnic
We‚Äôre getting ready for Celebration Day on June 13. ¬†¬†Please go to this link to see flyer and to print a volunteer signup form. ¬†We are hoping for a rainbow of Lincoln Eliot students! ¬†Therefore, we are asking that students at each grade level wear a specific color T-shirt/shirt. ¬†¬†Colors for grade levels are as follows:

Are you looking for a way to honor and thank the exceptional teachers and staff who have motivated, educated and inspired your students to grow and achieve all year? Consider participating in Newton Schools Foundations‚Äô Honor Thy Teacher campaign.
