Firehouse Pizza of Middle Point recently held a creative fundraiser for Lincolnview Elementary School.  Students in grades 2-6 decorated a pizza box, which families could request when they placed their order.  For every custom pizza sold, owners Ernie and Molly Welch donated a portion of their proceeds back to Lincolnview.  A total of $350 was raised, which will be used for student incentives.

The first and second semester speech classes organized and facilitated a coffee and hot chocolate bar on Tuesday mornings this winter.  Proceeds of $650.18

Do you have jeans that don’t fit or that aren’t your favorite pair and never get worn? We want them! Lincolnview Jr. High Student Council is collecting gently used jeans for “Teens for Jeans.” Teens for Jeans is a project that collects jeans for homeless people across North America. The reason they collect jeans is because they are one of the most requested items at homeless shelters. Jeans are durable and can be worn more than once without needing to be washed. They also make the homeless feel like they don’t stand out as much and give them a sense of normalcy. Our goal is to collect 200 pairs of jeans. They can be any size. Please turn them in by Friday, February 19. The jeans can be dropped off at the high school office or to teachers Sandy Dowdy or Beth Schnipke in their classrooms. The student council would like to thank Stephanie Longwell for introducing them to this project and for allowing them to partner with her.

Students and teacher were chosen because they show that they care about our school.  8th - Joe Sadowski, 9th Rachel Hertel, 10th Frankie Carey, 11th Ryanne DuCheney, 7th Madison Coil, 12th Anna Gorman, and teacher Michelle Knodell. (Photo submitted.)
