An annual tradition from the Bergenfield Fire Department, students at Lincoln School were asked to create posters illustrating a given theme. This year’s theme was all about making sure that we have working smoke detectors in our homes. Students’ artistic work is posted all around the halls of our school. On October 7th, members of the Bergenfield Fire Department stopped by to recognize all of the participants and award those whose work was above and beyond their expectations. Congratulations to all of our winners! Click the title to see the winners.
In honor of Read Across America Day the third graders at Lincoln School read across America. The hallway was labeled with all 50 states and each child rotated around while reading “just right” books of their choice. Dr. Seuss would have been proud of these enthusiastic readers. What a great way to celebrate this very special day!
The fourth and fifth grade students, at Lincoln School, celebrated “Read Across America” day by taking some time out of their busy morning to read. Students lined the third floor hallway, selected their favorite book, and read. It was a great way to honor Dr. Seuss and celebrate the joy of reading. These students also participated in Renaissance Learning’s “Read the Most, Coast to Coast” contest on Friday, February 28. The goal was to have 5,000,000 Accelerated Reader tests taken on Friday, across the country. Many students at Lincoln participated in this exciting contest, and earned participation certificates as well. Best of all, our students are READING!
On Thursday, February 20, 2014 the Lincoln School Kindergarten classes celebrated a very special day...The 100th Day of School! The students of Mrs. Hall and Mrs. McGuire’s classes enjoyed counting to 100 by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s, writing stories and drawing pictures of what they would look like if they were 100 years old, as well as many other fun activities centered around the number 100. The students were so excited to have Mr. Mitchel join their celebration by reading them a 100th Day of School story. Mrs. Hall and Mrs. McGuire loved seeing their students create and enjoy another wonderful Kindergarten memory.
Lincoln School’s 4th grade students participated with students throughout New Jersey in the Verizon 4th Grade Folder Contest. The students were challenged by Mrs. Johnson, our School Nurse, to create anti-drug artwork based on the theme “Fun Things to Do Instead of Drugs”. This challenge gave our students an opportunity to be creative and learn about a positive message. All entries were judged by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey Organization, winners were selected and their artwork placed on next year’s folders distributed to fourth grade students in New Jersey. Lincoln School students did a great job and were given award certificates for participating.
Mrs. Hall and Mrs. McGuire's Kindergarten classes enjoyed a wonderful activity to celebrate their studies on winter holidays and traditions. Each student created their very own candy house!! The students were so excited to design and build their very own edible structure, with assistance from their teachers, Mrs. Hughes (K paraprofessional), and several parent volunteers. "Candy Houses" is a Lincoln School Kindergarten tradition that we hope the children will always remember, and hopefully will continue this tradition with their own families in future years to come.

Mrs. McGuire's Kindergarteners and Mr. Quiambo's 4th graders have teamed up this year for "Reading Buddies"! Every other week, the 2 classes join together to work on specific things being learned in their classes. The 4th graders have been so helpful with Lincoln's newest group of students...the Kindergarteners! For a special holiday project, the 2 classes worked together to create a very special "Buddy Wreath". Each buddy traced the other's hand and then both cut out the traced hands, glued them on to a round base, and decorated each wreath with a bow and berries. We look forward to many more great learning experiences together! Click the title for more.
The students in Mrs. McGrane’s first grade class at Lincoln School went to Brookside Gardens to visit with the residents on the day before Thanksgiving. As a way of giving back to the community, the students performed a program of Thanksgiving songs and poems. The students wrote about the things for which they are thankful, and shared their writing with the residents. After, the students provided a buffet of snacks for everyone to enjoy while they talked with each other about their plans for Thanksgiving. The residents of Brookside Gardens expressed their gratitude for the visit and were happy to spend time with the students. This was a wonderful experience for everyone involved, and taught the students about the power of giving to others. Click the title to read more.
Once again the Lincoln School community has made our coat and blanket drive a huge success. So many families have contributed to this wonderful cause by donating over one hundred coats and blankets. These will be distributed this winter to help the homeless of Bergen County. Lincoln sincerely enjoys taking part in this event every year because it is a great opportunity to develop the student’s awareness of less fortunate people and develop their interpersonal skills of generosity, compassion, and service. We look forward to continuing this wonderful and worthy tradition again next year! Click the title to read more.
