Lincoln Extended Learning - VIRTUAL EDITION!

Spring 2021

We are excited to be able to open registration for the Spring 2021 session of virtual extended learning at Lincoln! The teachers have designed some very creative clubs for our students to enjoy. 

  • ALL clubs are virtual / remote and meet via zoom

  • 7 available clubs that meet on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons

  • 6 new clubs and an old favorite: Newspaper Club! Clubs are listed below in order of the day of the week (Mon --> Thurs) 

  • All clubs meet in the afternoons for one hour; however, specific start times vary so please read carefully!

  • The meeting day of the week for each club is highlighted in yellow with specific meeting dates listed under the day of the week

** Note about supplies:  Some clubs require supplies for participation. Due to logistical and health concerns, supplies will need to be provided / obtained from home rather than from the school for this session.  A specific list of supplies and the teacher's best estimate of cost for these supplies is provided below for many of the clubs and the participation costs have been adjusted accordingly. You may have many of the required supplies at home already - please feel free to use what you have unless the teachers have specified a particular item! For clubs that have detailed schedules already available, these have been linked below. For online chefs, the food supply list will be provided before each meeting and within enough time to allow for shopping.

An updated summary table of the clubs listed below is available here. Within the table are links to descriptions and supply lists if these are available. Please be aware that some of the linked PDFs within the document, such as incomplete supply lists may be updated in the future.

Registration & Payment Notes

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and payment is *only* via PayPal. Once registered, you can assume your child is enrolled unless we contact you.

 

The registration web form does not automatically block enrollment if a club has reached maximum enrollment and is full; rather, we must monitor this manually. In the event that a program is over-enrolled, we will contact you and issue a refund. Once we determine that a club has reached full enrollment, we will disable the payment option for that club. Therefore, if the payment option for a club does not appear, the club is full.  Conversely, we occasionally need to cancel a program due to under-enrollment. In this event, we will also contact you and issue a refund. Thank you for your understanding! Students on free or reduced lunch are eligible for scholarships, including assistance with supply costs (please contact the office for further information).  

 

Requests for cancellations & refunds do occur as student schedules change; therefore, please email us here if you would like to have your student added to a re-contact list. If you have any other questions related to the extended learning program, please contact us here.

Kindness Club (KC) will be a weekly meeting where students plan and execute missions that bring positivity to people in their school, families, and community. Each meeting has a different theme (Kind to Ourselves, Kind to Our Teachers, etc.), a different craft, and a new mission! During each meeting, students will lift one another up by bucket-filling and sharing some laughs while we craft and plan our kindness missions.

 

KC members will be a part of a secret Seesaw group (like a social media group, but monitored by a teacher and private via student Google accounts). During the week, they can spread kindness and positivity to one another by posting videos/photos showing their kindness mission progress OR by posting uplifting messages!
