We Need Families for our New Family Committee for Next School Year

We're looking for people to join our New Family Committee for next school year. You'd be asked to reach out to new incoming L-H families and be a resource for them to get acclimated to our great school. We ideally try to connect new families with a family who has similar-aged children.

If you'd be willing to be a part of our New Family Committee, please email Laura Buccola.

Get Your School Supplies for Next Year!

Hey L-H Parents! We are so excited to partner again with 1st Day School Supplies for the 2023-2024 school year!

Best of all, all orders will be shipped directly to Lincoln-Hubbard and placed in your child’s classroom in time for the first day of school. So, what are you waiting for?

Order today at 1stDaySchoolSupplies and take the school supply shopping task off your to-do list!

Deadline to order is July 1.

Check out the SLIMING

We thought we'd share a couple of pics of the infamous SLIMING OF MR. C that took place on Thursday. The kids really seemed to love it, and we have YOU to thank! Because of your generosity, we more than reached our $30,000 goal. We're so excited to be able to continue great events, assemblies, and traditions for your kids next year!

Your PTO Dollars at Work

Art Wellness Program with the Visual Arts Center of NJ 

 During the first three weeks of May, artist and art therapist Megan Tuttle from the Visual Arts Center of NJ led an art wellness program with all L-H students in grades 1-5. This PTO-sponsored program gave students the opportunity to explore art as a tool for self-expression and as a way to help regulate stress and anxiety particularly during testing season. During their regularly scheduled art classes, students had a chance to collaborate and work together as a community on some amazing artwork that will be on display at Wednesday evening's Open House. Be sure to take a look! Special thanks to Ms. Yospin for her oversight and our parent volunteers who helped make the program a success!
