Spring is a great time to pull out those old baseball gloves, golf clubs and rarely-used treadmills from your garage and basement. When you do, think about donating them to a good cause!

Students at Lincoln Elementary School are jumping, shooting and saving children’s lives with the American Heart Association.

At Lincoln School, 6th grade students from Mrs. Stark and Mr. Casper's class recently worked on architecture project.
The project is called Bridge Building. The students formed teams that consisted of an architect, an accountant, and a project director. These teams were then required to build a bridge that was aesthetically pleasing as well as strong. The students were given a budget of over a million dollars to "purchase" the supplies needed to build the bridges. These supplies included little wood sticks and wood glue.
The bridge breaking ceremony was held on Tuesday, June 10th at Lincoln School. The bridge that held the most weight was declared the strongest bridge. There were other awards given this day as well.
Mayor McCue and City Engineer Craig Faucett came to critique the bridges and gave advice on how they could improve their bridges. The students really enjoyed meeting them and listening to their suggestions.
Everyone is invited to attend the 2nd Annual Family Health and Safety Day at Lincoln School.
Date: Saturday June 7th
Time: 10 till noon
Where: Lincoln Elementary, 4416 S. Packard
