Lincoln School is celebrating its 100th school year. In honor of the occasion, the school is holding a day-long celebration on Wednesday April 16, 2014. Students should plan to wear blue and white or their bulldog apparel to commemorate this event.
Students will receive a presentation in the morning by the Meadowlands Museum on the history of the school, which will include photos, artifacts and ideas of what school was like 100 years ago. Our morning Kindergarten friends will join us for this event.
After lunch, students will have the opportunity to participate in activities that will allow them to experience life in school many years ago. Lincoln School PTA has planned to play games like marbles, pick up sticks and potato sack races. Students will also experience some cultural events that were popular during the 1900s. The Lincoln PTA will be sending home an informational letter asking for volunteers. If you could spare an afternoon, it would be appreciated. Parents are essential to offering students this experience. Our afternoon Kindergarten friends will join us for this event.
Once the festivities are complete, we will join together as a school community to sing the Lincoln School Song and Happy Birthday! Of course, students will have a treat to honor the occasion.
We are also having an open house from 3:30 until 5:00 pm this day. We are encouraging all former Lincoln School students, as well as faculty members, parents and Rutherfordians to come by and reminisce about Lincoln School. If you would like to tour the building on this day, please call the Lincoln School main office at 201-438-7675 ext. 6218.
