The High School Beta Club and NHS will be conducting a clothing exchange during the Elementary Parent Teacher Conferences on November 1 and 2. Any member of our community who would like to donate used/new good clean clothes and coats, with no stains, holes, rips, or tears, can drop them off at the school starting Wednesday, October 4, through Friday, October 27.

We will take infant through adult sizes. Donors can drop clothes off at the high school or elementary offices. Please do not send things other than clothing and apparel. 

Any member of our community who could use a hand with clothes can pick up items during Parent Teacher Conference hours. Everything will be free of charge and no questions asked. We will have the clothing items in the elementary side of the cafeteria, and will have signs directing you to the room where the clothes will be divided by gender and size.

We will have bags/boxes available for people to use. If you have any questions, you can contact Brenda Leeth at 419.968.2214, extension 3210, or Tonia Verville at 419.968.2351, extension 3203. Any clothing items left over will be taken to local agencies.

Art students at Lincolnview Elementary used their Google Chromebooks to create a painting. The fifth grade art students were studying geometric and free form shapes. They then composed a digital still life painting that incorporated those two types of shapes.

The first graders at Lincolnview Elementary are learning to type. On Friday, September 29, Deb Stetler came down to our classroom to begin instructing the first graders on the keyboard and how to use it. Keyboarding is an important skill for all students. It involves using correct finger placement and building speed for optimal typing accuracy. When students develop keyboarding proficiency, it becomes an aid to the improvement of their writing skills. Shown is Mrs. Stetler teaching keyboarding to Kris Tow’s first-graders. (Lincolnview photo)

Through daily lessons, hands-on activities, and active participation within their simulated community called JA BizTown, students quickly developed an appreciation for employment and careers in various professions. They viewed their individual roles within the community from both a consumer’s and employee’s perspective.

Many children commented on how they quickly discovered the importance of working cooperatively while running their business together. They enjoyed the challenge of organizing their time and meeting deadlines. Students further developed their money management skills for their business and personal financing.

Overall, the fifth graders did an excellent job interacting within the various businesses of JA BizTown. A special “thank you” to all parent volunteers that attended the field trip and assisted our children throughout the day.

What began two years ago as a bright idea and a desire to make the playground more inclusive has grown into a communitywide effort. The Lincolnview Elementary student body welcomed its new “Buddy Bench” home during the annual carnival.

Formed in the wake of the Rachel’s Challenge initiative, sixth grade Agents of Change wanted to bring about a way to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. Anyone who needs someone to play with can sit on the special Buddy Bench, signifying to their peers they wish to be invited to play.  The students began fundraising in an effort to purchase a bench, but aside from a generous initial donation, it was slow going. That’s where Rhonda Longstreth, director of Lincolnview Latchkey, came in. “I am always looking for something fun and educational to do in Latchkey. When I heard about Van Wert Elementary’s project, I thought that would be a great thing for us to do as well!”

So began a year-long enterprise collecting plastic bottle caps to be recycled into plastic lumber and made into a bench. Working with Green Tree Plastics in Evansville, Indiana, this initiative is specifically designed by school children for school children. The cost to produce a bench is $325.00, which was paid for with donations. The students sorted and weighed the items after school until they had 500 pounds of caps!

“It was amazing to see how fast we reached our goal. Families were bringing in huge bags of caps and lids,” said Longstreth. Elementary school counselor Tonia Verville agrees. “Just watching this grow through their hands and seeing their pride and responsibility for this project has been incredible. Not only are they engaged outside of instructional time, they have learned so much about recycling, caring for the earth, and green living. I love that sense of pride in what they have accomplished. I want to especially thank the Lancer families, Shawn Collins, Jesse Taylor, and the Latchkey students for making this dream come true!”

“We are already saving for a second bench,” says Longstreth. With school pride and a desire to change the world, it won’t be long until another blue bench makes its home in Lancer Land!

Fifth graders from Lincolnview Elementary and St. Mary’s Elementary visited JA Biz Town in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on May 4.

The children engaged in hands-on activities in the role of workers and consumers in a fully-interactive simulation of a town, JA Biz Town. Students discovered the importance of working cooperatively within a business and as a community member. They developed several economic skills such as balancing their checkbook after earning an income and making purchases in town. The students gained much knowledge on various careers and an appreciation for how their parents balance professional and personal responsibilities daily.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced, in April, a new conservation effort for Ohio agriculture producers to help combat future declines of honey bees and Monarch butterflies by providing food and habitat sources.

More than 80 percent of the world’s plants need pollinators to survive, including many that provide the food we eat. But many pollinators like honey bees and Monarch butterflies are in trouble. That’s why NRCS works with private landowners to create food and habitat for pollinators on farms and in forests.

NRCS provides technical and financial assistance through its Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to help producers voluntarily implement conservation practices such as planting cover crops, planting milkweed, and planting wildflowers, and native grasses in buffers and areas not in production. IN total, more than 3 dozen NRCS conservation practices provide benefits to pollinators.

Two Lincolnview students, Chayten Overholt and Jaden Youtsey, helped complete a pollinator plot located in Pleasant Township, Van Wert County. They volunteered several hours to plant the following plants: bare rooted apple, wild plum, crabapple, elderberry, and blackberry and raspberry bushes. This plot will help to feed bats, butterflies, and honey bees.
To learn more about EQIP and other technical and financial assistance available through NRCS conservation programs, visit “Get Started with NRCS or local USDA Service Centers”.

from 8 “scenarios” that were theme related.  The third part of the contest required the group to design and build a device that “moved” a standing water bottle from a predetermined collection of supplies.  Scoring for the design was based on time required to complete the task and upon the economical use of the supplies.

The students competing included: (Jr/Sr. team) Taylor Braun, Jayden Dickson, Hunter Adams, Keegan Cowan, Wayne Fawbush, Chayten Overholt; (Frsh/Soph team) Jacob Keysor, Kaleb Allenbaugh, Freddie Pfau, Joe Sadowski, and Colton Trenkamp.

The Junior/Senior Team won third in State – Essay and seventh in State – Overall. The Freshman/Sophomore Team won third in State – Overall and 20th in Nation – Overall.
