Megan and Caleb worked with the Pizazzers, offering advice and feedback on their choreography and general performance techniques.
The Student Leadership Team from Lincoln STEM organized a holiday food drive for the Watertown Food Pantry. They set a goal of 500 items to be collected over nine days. That goal was surpassed in four days, so they raised the goal to 1,000 items. THAT goal was reached with a couple of days to go, so ANOTHER goal of 1,500 items was set. In all, the students collected over 1,700 items over the course of nine days! The Watertown Food Pantry was very thankful for their donations, and the Watertown Fire Department came to help pick up and deliver the items. Way to go, Lincoln STEM Pandas! #lincolnSTEM #studentleadership #WatertownWay #seasonofgiving #studentsmakingadifference

Have you ever seen gingerbread houses with a math twist?! Mrs. Weinheimer's 2/3 class at Lincoln STEM created gingerbread houses that show different arrays of candies. Then, they wrote and solved multiplication problems to find the total number of candies on each side. These mathematicians even took it one step further and identified the repeated addition sentence that goes with each multiplication fact. Our #WatertownWay students sure are stretching their brains while having fun! 🤩🤩
🎶❤️ Music is good for the #WatertownWay soul. ❤️🎶 WUSD elementary music classes have been studying composer Pytor Tchaikovsky this month. Mrs. Beine’s 2/3 classes at Lincoln STEM had fun doing a bucket drumming activity to Tchaikovsky's “Trepak” with student teacher, Mr. Schaffrick. 🥁
Ladies and Gentlemen - Grab your popcorn 🍿 and turn up the volume 🔊 because we have a special performance coming your way! 🌟 WUSD elementary music students have been learning about Pytor Tchaikovsky, their composer of the month, by studying several pieces from the Nutcracker Ballet. We hope you enjoy this parachute performance to Tchaikovsky's "Trepak" presented by one of Mrs. Beine's second-grade classes! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmcDQIq4_IQ

✨Lincoln STEM celebrated World Kindness Day!✨ Last week, each classroom made a fleece tie blanket to donate to the Watertown Police Department to use as needed. Each grade level also wrote a thank you card to either the Watertown WI Police Department, Watertown Fire Department, or the Watertown Public Library. On Friday morning, students in the 2/3 classrooms walked to the police department to deliver the blankets and cards. Then, they walked to the Watertown Public Library to say "thank you" to the librarians, and their last stop was to visit the residents at Johnson Arms to spread some kindness to them. The Lincoln STEM students loved this service project and loved spreading kindness at school and throughout the community! 💞 A BIG shout-out to Jo-Ann Fabrics for donating the blanket materials so we could spread some kindness in the community!! #WatertownWay #WorldKindnessDay
On Veterans Day, Mrs. Beine’s music students at Lincoln and Schurz were able to zoom with a United States Veteran to share their thanks for his service. Gunnery Sergeant Lawrence Hollister is a retired Marine Veteran who served for 20 years. Part of his time with the Marines was spent serving in the Marine Band. In addition to sharing their thanks, students were also able to ask Gunnery Sergeant Hollister what it is like to be a musician in the Marine Band. Gunnery Sergeant Hollister encouraged our young musicians to work hard and persevere through the challenges of learning to play an instrument. #WatertownWay
