Work at Little Linc August ’20

LITTLE LINC TRICYCLE BASE

Thanks to the generous grant received from Kiwanis Club of Huntsville & the persistence of our faithful Old Guys, the Little Linc Playground extension is almost complete. Thanks to ALL who played a role in this project! We are ready for our students!

SOARING LIKE AN EAGLE

Thanks so much to Carter Pollock & his friends, family and Scout troop! Carter chose to support Lincoln Village
for his Eagle Scout Project. This is a major undertaking & a big accomplishment for this young man. Congratulations!
With the Covid issues we’re facing, Carter had to be very creative in the ways he would be able to make an impact.
Off site – he & his friends – created items to be used in the expanded playground area of the Little Linc pre-school, and created some work benches & planning tables to be used in the renovation process of Lincoln North.
Thanks again to all involved.

PLAY TIME
We are so excited to have the Little Linc students starting back.
They are going to have so much fun on their expanded playground. With water tables, a basketball hoop, a tricycle track & so much more —
The sounds of childhood joy will soon be filling the campus.
Thanks so much to everyone who played a part in the playground
process.

Saturday Work Day August ’20

A few pics from our Saturday, August 1 work day crew. The group of ladies are neighbors from McMullen Cove who just wanted to help out, and did a great job getting the front beds cleaned up for LA to start back to school. They enjoyed it so much, they have signed up to come back in September and October to tend the front beds & the butterfly garden!

The family pictured also helped out that day, removing weeds and debris from the butterfly garden. They are the Fullers, and the dad is a teacher at Whitesburg Academy. He brought a group of students early this year and his family wanted to come back and help.

We also had a sweet former student of Lyle’s here that day, but she had to leave before we got the picture…

Properties Projects August ’20

Please sign up for Adopt a Lincoln Village Garden/Yard!

We wanted to let you know about some new opportunities to volunteer at LVM, while still social distancing safely. As you know, we have a large neighborhood, complete with residences, a K-8 school & a 3/4yr preschool that could use some help with landscaping. We would love to have each garden area or section of lawns touched on once a week by various volunteers. This could be an opportunity for a community/life/small group to take care of an area once a month, twice a month or even weekly. Your group can sign-up to “adopt” that specific area and keep it looking nice. This can be a long or short term commitment. Thank you in advance!

Lincoln North August ’20

We are excited about continued progress being made at our Levert Street properties in Lincoln North.

The walls in this 3-plex are now blown completely full of insulation and we are ready to get the drywall hung. The insulation process is of great importance, in that it helps create as energy efficient a property as possible in these homes that have not previously had insulation. When drywall is installed in one of Lincoln’s renovations it takes on a much more “finished” look.
While there is still a lot to be done – we’re getting closer & closer to providing new housing & welcoming new people to the Lincoln family.
Next steps will be priming, painting, and cabinets… getting closer! Please be praying for the families who will soon be joining the Lincoln family!

Thanks to the people who jumped on board this week, along with Blake from Gifted Global, out of Georgia.
Their work & their donation of tools are greatly appreciated & a great encouragement to our staff!

Little Linc August ’20

The teachers of Little Linc Preschool are thrilled to be serving the Lincoln community once again with a safe and God-focused childcare program. What a blessing for all of us to begin to return to “normal” and live in community again! We are deeply thankful for the generosity of our supporters who quickly purchased everything we needed to keep our preschoolers safe! From cleaning supplies to masks to face shields to HEPA filters, you gave it all! Thank you for making it possible for our children to return to school!

With new safety measures and protocols in place, we’ve had to get creative to communicate daily lessons to our students. But we are thankful to know that the love of Jesus is not restricted by face masks! We can still pray with our students, tell them Bible stories, and explain to each child how precious they are to their Heavenly Father. What a blessing to focus on our mission to share the transforming power of the Gospel of Christ with every family at Little Linc!

God went before us this summer and provided a grant from the Kiwanis Club to expand our preschool playground. Our playground project involved adding a new section to the playground so that each preschool class can be outside as much as they are able without the classes sharing the same space. Little did we know at the time we were requesting the grant that this would be a primary recommendation for keeping children safe at school! God is so good to guide our steps! We are incredibly thankful to the Kiwanis Club and the many, many individuals who gave their time and talent to make this new playground space a labor of love. Our children absolutely love it!

Lincoln Academy August ’20

The day before school started we had a wonderful turn out for our drive up “Meet and Greet” with the parents and students. Everyone was so excited to see each other.

We are beyond thrilled to be able to start the year with face to face instruction! On the first day of school, one of our sweet students said it best. “I’m about to cry ’cause the whole gang’s getting back together!” We have truly missed one another over the last 5 months. Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to gather together and love on our children! Please continue to pray for protection over all of our children, their families and our staff. We have implemented so many new safety guidelines this year to mitigate risk. The students are doing a terrific job following our main three guidelines – Mask Up, Wash Up, Back Up!
We are happy to welcome Ms. Laura Kay Richardson to the Lincoln Academy family! She is our new fifth grade teacher this year.
