Lincoln news for Dec. 9

LINCOLN — The library will be offering an after-school craft on Friday, Dec. 17. Crafters will be making wrapping paper and a card. The craft will start around 3 p.m. and last for about an hour. All materials and a snack will be provided.


Dear Lincoln Community, Children and adults alike at school have simply been happier to have some parents and community members back at and in our school this year. We will, of course, continue to follow COVID guidelines and use caution as we invite people into the school.

This being said, here are some opportunities I hope some of you will consider. We’re looking for a community member to train a small group of students in proper daily care of the American flag so that students can take on the responsibility for it. We are also in need of adults who would love to simply listen to a student read aloud to them. A weekly time of 15-20 minutes with the same student would be ideal. Intrepid adults to stroll, snowshoe or jog around the playground during recess to be an extra set of eyes and ears to assist staff are also welcome. Are you an adult with a hobby who might like to share a skill during a midday recess or lunch time with a group of interested students? In the past, we’ve had a chess club, knitting club, drawing, games, etc.

Are you an adult interested in using the gym? We can welcome small groups into the school. The gym is available many evenings for basketball, volleyball, pickleball, etc. Please reach out if any of these ideas appeals to you or if you have another!


The library’s Holiday Sale will continue through Wednesday, Dec. 15. There will be differently priced tables with items ranging from 50 cents to $25. All proceeds from the sale benefit the library.


Winter break for MAUSD students will be Thursday, Dec. 23, through Sunday, Jan. 2.

Until next time … Be Happy. Be Bright. Be You.
