Dear Parents/Guardians,
October is here! It's hard to believe that school has been in session for a month already! Time flies when you are having fun!!!!! There are a few
things I'd like to remind parents/guardians of in this article:
-Parent/Teacher Conferences are just around the corner on October 28th and 29th from 3:30-6:30 p.m. on both nights and again on October 30th
from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Scheduling information is included in this week’s Thursday Envelope so that you can designate a time that works best for
you to visit with your child's teacher. It is vitally important that you schedule a time to meet with with your child's teacher to discuss your child's
progress so far this school year. Strong lines of communication between home and school build educational success for our students!
-Additionally, during Parent/Teacher Conferences, our Library will be hosting a book fair. Please take some time to stop into our library and check
out all of the great books for sale. As you know, I'm a huge proponent of every child reading at home as much as possible!
-On the PTO front, there are several events coming up.
-On Tuesday, October 20th, please remember that it's PTO Fund Raiser Pick Up Night from 3:00-5:00 p.m.. Please pick up the items
you ordered as we do not have freezer space to store any frozen items.
-On Friday, October 16th, the PTO will be sponsoring its annual Spooktacular from 6-7:30 p.m. It will be great seeing all of the great
-Popcorn Fridays will take place on the first Friday of each month. The cost is 50 cents per bag or $4 for the school year per child. The
money is collected and a classroom order placed by the classroom teacher in the morning. Students will receive their popcorn in the
-The first Canine Reading Day will be coming up shortly. Please watch the calendar for upcoming Canine Reading Days and be sure that your
child's green permission slip is turned in as only those with signed permission slips will be allowed to participate.
-Another date of interest that should be marked in your calendar is the Holiday Concert. This year, it will be held on Thursday, December 10th
starting at 1:30 p.m. in the High School Auditorium. It's sure to be an outstanding concert under the direction of Mr. Hallman!
-With Fall upon us and colder temperatures invading our great Northeast Wisconsin area, we need to remember to ensure that our students are
coming to school appropriately dressed for the colder temperatures. Please remember to watch the weather forecast and send your child with
proper clothing to protect them from the cold such as hats, mittens/gloves and a warm coat. When the snow flies, be prepared to send your children with snow pants and boots to protect them from the cold and snow.
-Be sure to remind your child to read tonight and every night through October 18 to help our school meet The 70,000 Minute Principal’s Reading
Challenge. If we succeed as a school in meeting the challenge, Mr. Delwiche will get a really short hair cut at an assembly on October 28! Plus,
the top two readers in each class will be part of a pizza party on October 28th for lunch! See my weekly parent newsletter, which was in the Thursday Envelope for more details and submission forms. Happy Reading!
-One final note. We have already collected quite an assortment of "Lost but Found" articles of clothing. We'd like to get those items back to their
rightful owners. Please check out the table in the foyer by the gym to see if any of those items belongs to your child.
Have a great October!

Amy JordanJordan-School Psychologist
I’d like to introduce myself to the Lincoln family! I
am the new school psychologist, replacing Amy
Menchl. I am starting my 29th year as a school psychologist, and am happy to now be working in the
town where I live. I enjoy the much shorter drive to
work, as I was previously employed with the Appleton
Area School District for 25 years.
One thing I noticed almost immediately about Lincoln
was the friendliness of students, parents, and staff.
As a result, the adjustment to a new school has been
a piece of cake. I enjoy connecting with parents and
staff regarding any issue that may arise with a student that appears to be a barrier to learning. This
includes academic, social, emotional, behavioral,
and mental health concerns. Although I am shared
between three schools you can always connect with
me through email [email protected] or
leave a message at Lincoln 982-8540.
Lincoln/Sugar Bush School Counselor
Hi, I’m Jen Tate, Lincoln/Sugar Bush’s new School Counselor.
I come to Lincoln with 11 years of counseling experience at
Marion Elementary.
In kindergarten, students are working on their learning
skills. We are focusing on trying hard and never giving up.
Listening,, work first and then play and cooperation are some
of the other lessons we are working on.
First graders are learning how to listen, try hard and developing organizing skills including how to use time wisely.
Second graders are focusing on the skills of trying hard
each and every day, becoming great listeners, fine tuning
organizational skills and proofreading their work.
Third grade and Fourth graders have been learning how
to prioritize , set goals and follow directions carefully.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to
contact me at Lincoln on Monday, Tuesday or Friday, 982-

Hello and welcome to the 2015-16 school year! My name is
Kurt Schommer and I am the Physical Education Teacher at
Sugar Bush Elementary. I could not be more excited and happy
about being in such an outstanding community.
To start our school year in Physical Education, we have engaged in a lot of team building and icebreaker activities to build
a positive, productive, and safe learning community. All grade
levels have been engaging in these activities and they have
gotten us all off to a great start.
The 2-4 students recently completed our fitness testing using
the FitnessGram. A lot of students did such an outstanding job
in trying their best and seeing where they fit in with other students around the nation in their grade. After the FitnessGram,
we will be moving on to our locomotor movements, as well as
catching and throwing.
The two main points that I emphasize most in my classroom
are effort and respect. If we can show respect to one another
and give our best effort, then your student will achieve success
in my classroom.
Kurt Schommer

Parent Teacher Organization
Parents may wonder what it really means to be involved. Parent involvement comes in different forms, such as
helping kids at home with schoolwork and projects; attending school events, which helps foster a connection between home and school; and volunteering and participating directly in school. Lincoln P.T.O. just concluded it’s fall
fundraiser. It was not as profitable as in years past. We are always looking for input and parent involvement for
the events we sponsor. In the past we have sponsored Family Movie Nights, field trips, and the ever popular
“end of year celebrations”. We meet the last Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm at Lincoln.

Research proves that . . .
“When parents are simply more involved than average, their children
are an astonishing 30% more successful in school.”
