Our fourth graders were fortunate today to have a visit from Kevin Skarupa, WMUR Channel 9's morning meteorologist. He spoke about basic weather elements including the water cycle, types of clouds and extreme weather. He also shared a little about the technology he uses to predict the weather and how the maps appear on TV. Thank you Mr. Skarupa for visiting Lincoln Street School!

LSS Chorus sings at Making Strides Against Cancer Event
Chorus sings at Making Strides for Cancer Event
On Saturday, October 18th, our fifth grade chorus sang the National Anthem for the “Making Strides of Exeter” event organized by the American Cancer Society. Our chorus currently has about 100 participants, and 60 of them were able to attend this event!
The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) event was an inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what can be done to reduce breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them. It was very successful day, with 60 teams and 673 walkers who raised $79,833.64. We are proud that our students played a role in this event!
