Lincoln news for Mar. 21

LINCOLN — LCS students, in partnership with Sas Carey of Nomadicare, celebrated their annual cultural study with a Mongolian Festival on Thursday, March 14. The festivities included a story, a play based on traditional folklore and a dance with special music. Exhibits featured student made deel (traditional outerwear worn by Mongolians), a felting station where students shared the pouches they made and a gaming station where a homemade chess board was on display.
The food group showed off their cooking skills by offering samples of homemade yogurt and dumplings. The music group’s display showcased rattles, shakers and drums. Talented artists showed off their wonderfully creative Mongolian masks. Animals were represented with a special display and also with an interactive display where you could find out what your spirit animal is. Another group featured homemade gers (portable tents) that students made to show what Mongolian homes look like. Ovoo shrines were also on display as a place where Mongolians celebrate the spirit of nature.
Special thanks to the Tari Shattuck Educational Foundation and the Friends of LCS for funding much of this study and a big thank you to all the volunteers. Each year the festival is always such a fun celebration of the students learning and creating and this year was no exception. Way to go.
The Lincoln Library Board of Trustees currently has an opening for a teen (non-voting) member aged 13-18 years old. This is a volunteer position. Teen members attend monthly library board meetings and are encouraged to participate in discussions and decision-making, fundraising projects, and all of the other board functions. This is a great opportunity to learn about how libraries function, play an active role in managing a library and gain other experience and references that can be useful for seeking employment and applying to colleges. Contact Sally at [email protected] or 802-233-0243 if you are interested in learning more.
Community Movie Night on Friday, April 5, at 6:30 p.m., has been cancelled.
SAVE THE DATE: There will  be no school on Friday, March 29.
REMINDER: There will be a film about Front Porch Forum at the library on Wednesday, March 27, from 7-9 p.m.
Until next time … Get Your March Madness On. Go UVM!
