Lincoln news for May 26
LINCOLN — Tchotchkes needed! The Lincoln Community School library is holding its end-of-school-year celebration on Tuesday, May 31, for students in third through sixth grades who have read 15 to 24 Golden Dome books. Part of the celebration is picking out tchotchkes. Please search the drawers in your kitchen where you put stickers, yo-yos, key chains, hacky sacks, etc., and bring them to the office at LCS. Librarian Beth Nelson and the students thank you!
Do your kids love trains? If the answer is yes, then you’ll want to stop by the children’s room at the Lincoln Library, where a new wooden train table is available for all to enjoy.
FROM SAVE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
The State Board of Education (VSBE) on Tuesday, May 18, reconstituted the Lincoln School District, with official independence from MAUSD as of July 1, 2023. The next step is to hold a special election on June 21, 2022, to elect three school directors for the Lincoln School Board. The Lincoln School Board will then negotiate a financial exit agreement with the MAUSD Board to be voted on by the remaining towns in MAUSD. The board will also continue to engage with Ripton on the possibility of creating a Mountain Supervisory Union, with Lincoln and Ripton operating as separate school districts but with shared resources. Please stay tuned for a community forum to discuss these next steps for LCS. As always, please reach out with any questions.
SAVE THE DATE
In observance of Memorial Day, there will be no school for MAUSD students on Monday, May 30.
The Lincoln Cooperative Preschool’s online auction ends on Friday, May 27. The town-wide yard sale is happening on Saturday, May 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be sales all over town, at the Historical Society, the Weathervane Walkway and at the library. The library will also be having its annual plant and book sale. Food will be available at the Lincoln Fire Station. Happy shopping!
