Hi, I am a student at Lincoln elementary and I was looking all over the place to find school photos of my cousin in fourth grade named Alex Guillam I do not know how to spell her last name but never mind that If you are wondering why I was looking for her photos; it was because she said she really liked the way her pictures looked so I was looking to see what they looked like she couldn't show me because her yearbook was in storage. Okay end of that topic, I really enjoyed your back to the days this year it was very fun! I especially liked how we were paired up with other schools because we got to make new friends and I always love to make new friends! So thank you for being such an amazing school. I've heard so many great things about it! Also, out of all the kids I know the kids from Harrison are definitely the nicest. I'm going to end it here because my thumbs are starting to hurt. Sincerely Lauren Steger-4th grade-Lincoln elementary-Mrs. Grossman's class.
