Spring is a very busy time of year for many - including those folks associated with a plethora of sports and activities at all of the schools as the temps warm and outside activities increase exponentially. Over the past few days, numerous activities have occurred and we'd like to bring you up to speed on some of them!

This past Friday afternoon, there was excitement in the air in and ALL around Lincoln Elementary, as all of the students prepared for the 1st annual PATRIOT DASH! And did they ever dash! Through tires, under obstacles, over hay bales, along beams, over obstacles and a mad dash to the finish, with a complimentary cooling spray from your local WFD, near the finish! It was a beautiful day, the young patriots had a wonderful time!
