Lincoln students let their creativity shine at the annual egg drop held on Friday, Sept. 6 on the school campus. Students designed packages to house uncooked eggs that were dropped from the top of a Glendale Fire Dept. hook and ladder truck. Eggs that survived the drop were judged in a contest that included awards for the smallest package, best engineered package, eggs that showed the most school spirit and best principal look-alike.
Dinner was served by the newly formed Dads’ Club.
On Friday, Sept. 13, the Summer Readers’ Picnic was attended by 70 students who had read five books or 500 pages over the summer. They enjoyed lunch and reflective time with Lincoln’s librarian Jo Van Amburg at Crescenta Valley Park.
Spearheading this event was the Lincoln PTA, Postcard Summer Readers chairperson Amanda Chapman and the Lincoln parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and staff members who helped with this year’s summer reader picnic.
Finally, the Lincoln Foundation’s 10th Annual Mother-Son Olympiad was held on Friday, Sept. 20 and featured an eight-game circuit for all grade levels, as well as dinner, dessert and dancing.
