Next Family Fun Night, New Lightning Backpacks, and more!

Good afternoon, Archway Lincoln families! While we’re only a few weeks away from the last day of school, many of us are already looking forward to next year, including your PSO! But there are still a few things happening between now and the end of the year. Please read all the way through this update for all the information on what’s going on.

Family Fun Nights in May and July

Screen Shot 2016-05-13 at 2.21.18 PMOur next FFN is Thursday, May 19th from 5-7 p.m. at Chik-fil-A on Germann and the 202. Take a break from cooking dinner that evening, let the kids play at the play area, and socialize with other Archway Lincoln families. There will be a box by the registers to collect receipts, so please be sure to drop it in there or we won’t get credit. We look forward to seeing you on the 19th!

Grab your pencil and mark your calendar for our mid-summer FFN at Peter Piper Pizza on Alma School and Queen Creek on Friday, July 29th. We had a fantastic first FFN there last year and we look forward to repeating our awesome experience! More details will come over the summer, so keep checking your email for updates. All current and future Archway Lincoln families are welcome! It’s a great way for your child to meet friends before school even begins.

First and Fourth Grade Parent Volunteers Needed for Commencement

Screen Shot 2016-05-13 at 2.33.10 PMIn what we hope will be a new tradition at Archway Lincoln, PSO is asking parents of First Graders to help with Kindergarten Commencement, and Fourth Grade parents to help with Fifth Grade Commencement, on Thursday, May 26th so K and 5th Parents can enjoy the time with their graduating children.

First Grade parents please see this sign up for information on working the reception, and this one for details about help we need with a “little gift” for the Kinders.

Fourth Grade parents can find all the information and sign up here.

Please email Archway Lincoln PSO if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for giving of your time so K and 5th grade parents can enjoy the day.
