The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will be running the Scholastic Book Fair during conference week. After conferencing with your child's teacher we strongly encourage parents to take a survey in the computer lab then visit the Scholastic Book Fair in Room 11. Some of the proceeds will go to our PTO and playground fund.
Children are allowed to bring costumes to school on Halloween however they will only be able to wear them the last hour of the day. As costumes can become a big distraction, we don't want the cosutmes to take away from learning the rigourous standards. Children are not allowed to bring fake or plastic weapons of any kind, fake blood or anything that can be considered gore. Teachers will have the option of having a Halloween party for the last hour of the day if they so choose. Be safe on Halloween night!
Conference week is just around the corner. Our late night conferences will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 5 and Thursday, Nov. 7 until 6:30 pm. Please connect with your child's teacher if you have not done so thus far. Our staff is eagerly waiting to meet our parents and inform them of the great things they are doing at Barge-Lincoln.
Barge-Lincoln will be hosting a Veteran's Day Assembly on Friday, November 8 from 9:00-9:45 am.

The High School and Beyond Plan process is a graduation requirement that supports students in exploring their interests, planning high school coursework that is aligned to those interests, keeping track of major assessment scores, and logging work and other relevant experience. The Plan is designed to enable students to successfully pursue education or training after they graduate high school. https://readywa.org/beyond/en/

The Yakima School District recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each student, staff member and citizen within the community. Teaming together, the school community creates a learning environment that fosters fair treatment and access to educational resources and programs for all students. The American democratic system depends on equal access to the opportunities for and benefits of public education for all young people: our future leaders, voters, taxpayers, workers, parents and adult citizens (Click the Equity in Education title above for our full policy).
