Lincoln Planning Day PDF Print E-mail
Monday, August 09 2010 12:07


Some of the teachers of Lincoln Elementary School met on Monday, Aug 2 for a Planning Day.  The main topic addressed was SCHEDULING; how to fine tune the class periods and times.  As a group, schedules were coordinated to make the most efficient use of students time.  Planning time for teachers was also coordinated so teachers that are teaming can now plan together more effectively.  Other topics discussed were: homework completion/ how to maximize, incorporating keyboarding into everyday use and student led conferences.  This is just one of the many things that are done before the school year starts to prepare for a smooth and productive year.  2010/ 2011 is going to be GREAT!

If you shop at Office Depot in Iowa City (by Waterfront Hy-Vee); 5% credit of your purchase will come back to the school of your choice! The money earned through this program is used for educational needs in free supplies. It is easy! All you do is simply let the cashier know which school you support and they will look up the correct code for your students school. This credit accumulates and at the end of the program period (quarter) our schools are awarded credit for FREE supplies!

Forgot to use your school's ID number when making a purchase?

Past purchases made within the current quarter can still be entered for credit! To give 5% of your qualifying school supply purchases back to your school in the form of merchandise credits, just follow these simple steps: Simply bring your receipt to your local Office Depot location and ask a store associate to apply your purchase to the school of your choice (they can look up the correct school id number).

Shopping somewhere else? No problem, ask them if they have a promotional program to "give back to your school". Many companies have this program, you just need to ASK!

GREAT NEWS from the Transportation Dept: Economies of scale! PDF Print E-mail
Monday, July 26 2010 08:30

We are pleased to report that effective August 1 we will be involved in Operational Function Sharing of Transportation between the school districts of Washington, Waco and Winfield/ Mt Union.  The Washington School District has welcomed our neighbors into our family by now providing service for Buses/ Bus Drivers through: Maintenance, Inspections and Drug Testing of Bus Drivers.  The Washington & Waco School Districts have already approved this and the Winfield/ Mt Union School District is pending approval on August 11 and foresee no problems.  As a result of this teamwork, all three districts are eligible for financial incentives from the State of Iowa.


Woody Harden, Director of Transportation, will still spend the majority of his time in the Washington School District.  Route Scheduling will not be affected.  This Operational Function Sharing just builds a great teamwork between our school districts and gives us the advantage of economies of scale!
