So, we’re kind of geeking out about the new Star Wars and decided to pack the Bulldog store today with Star Wars merchandise. We’ve got Notebooks, Pencils, Keychains, and Stickers with Darth Vader, Yoda, R2D2, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, and some Storm Troopers. Get the fast, they will probably be gone by the end of the day.
We are also offering our new Star Wars SpiritSticks. “U R-2 SMART”, “BE A FORCE“, and “YODA BEST”! Order forms are going home today along with the new Holiday SpirtSticks pack.
Last week, our PTA members took time to vote in the new 2014-15 PTA Unit Board (beginning July 1) at Lincoln. Congratulations to the new board and we know it will be a fantastic year!

Today, April 2nd, marks a special day…the seventh annual World Autism Awareness Day. Lincoln’s PTA wants to say a very special thank you to all the teachers, staff, students, parents and friends who support our students living with Autism (both mainstream and special education) here at Lincoln every single day. We will never completely be able to understand what life is like for those living with Autism, but we are continuing to learn more about them and from them.
To the parents of our amazing students living with Autism…your bravery and dedication is unbelievably inspiring. Thank you for enduring and bringing your child to Lincoln every day. We know it’s not easy, but we hope it never goes unappreciated.
“Think of it: a disability is usually defined in terms of what is missing…But autism…is as much about what is abundant as what is missing, an over-expression of the very traits that make our species unique” – Paul Collins, Not Even Wrong: Adventures in Autism
Twenty venues around Southern California will offer free admission on Jan. 25 as part of the annual Museums Free-for-All program.
Participating museums include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Orange County Museum of Art.
The offer is valid for general museum admission only, organizers said, and may not apply to special ticketed exhibitions. Regular parking fees apply at each venue.
The free day can offer substantial savings for families. General adult admission at LACMA is normally $15, and at MOCA it’s $12. The Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach normally charges $12 for an adult admission.
Some of the participating museums such as the Getty Center already offer free admission to all. (The Getty Villa requires timed tickets for entry.) The Hammer Museum is scheduled to switch over to free admission at all times starting Feb. 9.

One city…many hands. Whether it’s PTA Council meetings or PUSD Parent Lead meetings, taking time to connect with other parent innovators throughout the city is important to the success of all our students.

For the first time ever, we will offer 30% off all new books as an effort to make buying books for students just a little easier.
