LHS Weekly News for May 2, 2016

Good Morning Lincoln Railsplitters!

The sun has returned! Because of this alone I know it will be a great week at LHS. Last week I learned that there were 400 families not receiving these weekly emails because of a setting in Infinite Campus. I have corrected this issue to include everyone. So if this is the first email you have received from me… HELLO! This setting is controlled by you as parents during online registration. Be sure to click the boxes for “general communication” from the school otherwise you don’t get the messages we send out to everyone.

This week really picks up for us at LHS. Today we start Advanced Placement testing, the yearbook deadline is approaching, students are running for class offices for next year, and because homecoming is early next year, we are about to do our king & queen nominations.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Please take a moment to send an email to a teacher to thank them for their time and effort they give to the students. Teaching has become an increasingly difficult job over the years. Sometimes a brief message of “thanks” can make the day for a teacher.

The Railsplitter yearbook captures a years worth of memories on 242 color pages. You need to preorder a yearbook now. The absolute last day to order a yearbook is this Thursday, May 5. Please go to www.yearbookordercenter.com to order. All yearbooks must be ordered online; no extra are ordered. The code for you to enter is 3735. Please email Cynthia.bradshaw@dmschools.org or call 242-7512 with questions about yearbooks, class officer elections, and homecoming court.

Graduation as right around the corner! This is a reminder that our graduation time and date is May 28 at Noon. This will be held on the Drake University Campus in the Knapp Center. For details about how people can watch the ceremony live on the internet, please visit our school website. There are also other important dates coming up for seniors including a mandatory event the night before graduation. Click HERE for the Class of 2016 Senior Calendar.

This is a reminder that the last day of school this year has been moved to Friday, June 3, for students in grades 9-11 due to snow days. An updated finals schedule for all grade levels can be found on our school website calendar.

Finally, the last monthly parent meeting is approaching. It will be held next Tuesday, May 10, at 6:30PM in the alumni room on the main campus. I would like to find out from you, as parents, what you would like for me to present or bring up for discussion at this meeting. This is the last meeting of the school year. Please click HERE to let me know if there are agenda items about this year or next year. I am also interested in knowing if you will be able to attend. If you are not able to attend, please still provide your questions so I can respond to them both in the meeting and a separate communication if necessary. The survey shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes.

I hope everyone has a great week! There is a lot to participate in as you can see below.

Take Care,

Paul Williamson, Principal
