Having an I'MPACT at Lincoln

Second grader Omar Aloui and his mom got a visit  from the
Lincoln I'MPACT Team
Blogger's Note: If some of you think that perhaps Pottstown Schools information guru John Armato is emptying his in-box in preparation for the holiday, I think the swamped staff at The Digital Notebook might have to agree with you...

The Lincoln Elementary School I'MPACT Team recognizes students’ outstanding efforts and good citizenship by making home visits to students.

(I'MPACT stands for I'm Pottstown Action Team)

Teachers, along with Principal Mrs. Treena Ferguson, made personal home visits to students who were recognized as the first marking period I’MPACT award winners. 

Teachers greeted students with noisemakers and celebration.

Students received a certificate with a statement from their teacher why they earned this special award. 

Students received balloons, a certificate, and a bubblegum machine filled with M&M's. 

Attached to the bubble gum machine was as card that said they were a Magnificent and Marvelous student. 

Award winners for the first marking period included:
