Thursday, Sept. 28th we were very fortunate to have Laura Vaccaro Seeger visit all Kindergarten – 2nd grade students here at Huntington. This was possible because of the Plum Creek Festival sponsoring her. We are very thankful. She is both an author and an illustrator. Some of her books include, First the Egg, Bully, the Dog and Bear series and many other
This year, on PLC days, Huntington’s specialists team (Music, PE, Art, Computer Science & Library Media teachers) are planning fun collaborative events for all students during their regular specials time. Last month we had a number of makerspaces for the students to explore. A makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. They had great fun building, playing giant checkers, deconstructing radios, calculators and radios, and much more.

Throughout March, teachers and staff have been teaching about bullying. This is just part of our “Fill a Bucket Campaign”. Friday, March 31st, students had great fun and loud voices as we demonstrated what we learned with a march against bullying.

Dear Parents and Guardians:
As a Title I school, it is our goal to keep parents informed and involved in preparing our students academically. Each year, we hold an Annual Title I Meeting for parents to learn about Title I and how we administer funds in our building to provide supplemental academic and support resources for students. We also ask for parent input to inform our Parent Involvement Policy, and we share a School Compact form with parents and students to clarify the role that each of us plays in supporting the academic needs of our students. Finally, you also have the opportunity to request information about the professional qualifications of the teachers and paraprofessionals that work with your student(s). Our entire staff is working diligently to ensure that every child meets high academic standards in a safe and caring learning environment. I would like to encourage you to contact me for further information or to find out how you can become involved.
Mr. Devney, Principal
As part of Lincoln Public Schools endeavor to make information easily accessible to families we are pleased to inform you that your students free & reduced eligibility notification letter will be provided to you on-line. We believe that this will be a more effective and useful process for all our families, as well as serve as a wise use of school district resources.
You will receive an e-mail from “School Lunch Status” with the subject line: “Eligibility Status Is Available!” In the e-mail you will be provided a link to your family’s eligibility notification. You can view or print your students’ eligibility letter anytime throughout the school year. E-mail notifications will be sent in lieu of U.S. postal mail when you provide an e-mail address on your free & reduced meals application or if you have a valid e-mail address on file at your student’s school. Please allow up to 2-3 business days after submitting your online application or up to ten business days after submitting a paper application to receive your eligibility notification. Applications submitted without an e-mail address will be sent via U.S. mail.
The on-line application can be accessed by clicking on the “Free & Reduced Meal Application” link under Popular Pages on the LPS Home page: http://www.lps.org
Paper applications can be picked up at your child’s school or at the District Office (5905 O Street). Please call the Nutrition Services Office at 402-436-1746 if you have questions regarding the Free and Reduced Meals program.
As a reminder about birthday treats, we will not recognize birthdays with food treats that are brought to school. In many LPS schools, birthday treats from home (such as cupcakes) have not been allowed for years and birthdays have been celebrated in other ways. As of the 2013-14 school year, Lincoln Public Schools are shifting to make this practice consistent across the district. Food allergies, diabetes, weight issues for children and more have guided us to look differently at this policy change.
