Lines Mini Courses ended last week. A HUGE thank you to co-chairs Liisa Gent, Theresa Mercure, and Ana Oryhon for organizing and running this well-loved program. The course selection was fantastic, the kids had fun, and we raised over $7000 for Lines School! This is amazing and we couldn't have done it without the hard work of all our volunteers. Special thanks to the teachers, parents, and siblings who volunteered their time to teach a class!

Save the date for the fifth annual Got2Run for Education. This is a fun, exciting 2.62 mile mini marathon or 8k run/walk in beautiful downtown Arlington Heights. A sizable portion of each registration fee comes back to Lines School for our wellness initiatives. Last year, Lines School received a check for $1058.75, largely due to a huge turnout of Lines Families and Staff.
We had over 70 registered participants.
This year, we would love to break the 100 participant mark! This is a great event to cap off our Running Club season and school year! Please check out the website, http://www.got2run.org for details.
5th Grade parents it's time to start thinking about Memory Night (date to be announced soon)!
The Memory Night Team needs your help for the 5th Grade Video. We are asking that each family contribute up to 5 photos of your child (group shots are best) at school activities such as class parties, Timberlee, Field Trips, school events etc. We are looking for pictures from Kindergarten through 5th grade. School events only. Pictures from private events (such as birthday parties) will not be accepted.
In addition to the group pictures, we plan to show each child's Kindergarten school picture along with their 5th grade picture. If your child did not attend Kindergarten at Lines School, please provide us with his/her Kindergarten picture.
The deadline for photos is April 15th to the email address below. We will make sure that all children are represented equally.
Questions may also be directed to the same email address. Stay tuned for more details on this FUN Lines Tradition!

If you shop at Heinen's, they donate up to 1% of your purchases to the school of your choice, but you have to register your loyalty card each year. Good news? If you sign up by April 1, it's retroactive for all your purchases since September 1.
Mark your calendars for Monday, May 8th from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., for a "girls-only" night to discuss the physical and emotional changes that are a part of growing up.
