The Linton Elementary School Student Council will be having a food drive November 13-17th. Students can bring in non-perishable food items to their homeroom teachers during that week. The class with the most items donated will earn an extra recess! The 5th grade students will be delivering the items to the Linton Blessing Boxes (with the remaining items being delivered to the Food Pantry at the Catholic Church) on November 21st.
School meals are healthy, affordable, and deliciously convenient! Did you know that your student might qualify for free or reduced-price meals? The application only takes a few minutes to complete. Your information will be kept safe and confidential and will only be used to determine your child's meal eligibility. Haven't submitted a meal application yet? That's OK! You can submit your application at any time throughout the year, and you can even resubmit an application if your circumstances change. Help your student power through the school day with healthy, delicious school meals. You may complete an application in the “Food Service Application” tile on your child’s Skyward dashboard.

LSSC Community University! We had a spectacular start to our morning by leading a tour to our community members. Our Student Ambassadors did an amazing job sharing all the great programs, curriculum, and staff! They were glowing in all of our Graduate Profiles. I personally want to say thank you to Mr. Berns and Mr. Sanders for leading our Ambassadors. Today’s tour was a good time to reflect and be reminded of how amazing our staff and students are and all the ways we make education relevant! It’s a great time to be a Miner!

We want to say thank you to everyone who helped us make this a neat week! Linton Stockton Elementary is blessed by all the support!
5th graders were able to attend a stem field trip at NSWC (CRANE) Monday and Tuesday this week. They had to construct a couple of different models to perform a task such as making a marble maze so the marble goes as slow as possible and making a potato “flink” (not sink to the bottom, not float to the top but stay in the middle of water). They collaborated and showed their effective communication skills to work together and complete the task!
