Good morning, today is Wednesday, April 24, and it is a B day.

Please mark your calendars for Friday, April 26th from 12:00pm-1:00pm.
You are cordially invited to attend the annual sixth grade culminating project, Live From Lincoln Magnet: Exploring the Global Water Crisis.
Students will report live from around the world as they present information about the global water crisis. We will kick off our event in the main hallway and then the presentation will begin at 12:05. We would also like to invite you to join us for refreshments after the presentations at 12:45.
Please join us as students proudly show off much of what they have learned throughout the year!

We look forward to seeing all of our families that day!
Donate Your $$$ for the Penny Wars
Penny Wars is a spirited game of friendly competition between grade levels. Not only is it fun, we will raise money for a worthy cause. The object of the game is for each team to collect as many coins as possible during the “war” while simultaneously “sabotaging” the other teams by adding bills to opposing grade levels.

Dollar Bills = Negative

Coins = Positive

Donate your $$$ to the jugs outside Mrs. Gates’s room. The winning team will receive a special surprise and treats in May.
