The Class of Mrs. Kovacs

It's Homecoming in WBL

September 22, 2019
What is homecoming?  Answer in a blog comment and get 4 tickets.

The WBL teams will be playing the East Ridge Raptors all week long culminating in a big football game on Friday night.  Have you even been to a WBL football game.  They are the BEST!!  There is so much excitement and enthusiasm and so many kids participating in things from the band to the cheerleaders to the dance line to the half time parade to the football players and student managers.  It's really quite an event.  

Lincoln is celebrating HOMECOMING by wearing Lincoln Lightening shirts or even just BLUE shirts on Wednesday and orange and black bear wear on Friday.  

In our room, I will give tickets to everyone who wears orange and black or WBL bear wear EVERY DAY!  Well, except for Wednesday when you wear Lincoln blue. Wear your football jersey--4 tickets.  Wear your basketball or hockey jersey--4 tickets.  Wear an orange shirt and black pants--4 tickets.  Let's celebrate our great schools ALL week long!!  Then on Friday let's go crazy with the orange and black.  Hair ribbons, hats, socks, jewelry, if it's orange and black, wear it!  Let's be the super fans of Lincoln Elementary School.

I sent parents an update email on Friday.  Hope it's helpful.

I also have 3 grandchildren, Jack and Lydia, who are the kids of my oldest son and his wife, and Kennedy who is the one year old daughter of my second son and his wife. The older kids are 6 and 4. My family lives in White Bear Lake. ____________My son John is married and lives in Turkey with his wife Pamela and son Jack and daughter Lydia. Hey, that makes me a grandmother--yikes! John is a teacher too. A couple years ago he taught at White Bear Lake but for the last couple years he's been teaching social studies to middle school kids at Hope Academy in Minneapolis. He also has taken classes at a seminary. He wrote a book called "The Historia" which you can buy on He was a hockey player and played college hockey at Bethel. His wife is a lawyer worked at a big law firm in Minneapolis. Cool! Hey, guess what. I am a lawyer too!! This will be my 14th year teaching as I practiced law for over 15 years. Teaching is way more fun!! Now they are living in Turkey and simply trying to learn the language and make connections. This year my son has started free lance writing for many different publications. __________My son Jim lives in Blaine with his wife Courtney. They both graduated from Winona State where they were star pitchers on their baseball and softball teams. Jim graduated from St. Thomas School of Law. He clerked for a judge and now he works for a law firm in Golden Valley. His wife graduated from Des Moines University Medical School where she studied to be a physical therapist. She works for Twin Cities Orthopedics. You can check out pictures of their wedding on the summer vacation tab. __________My son Joe graduated from Moorhead State. He, like his brothers was a good athlete and loved sports. He also is a great singer and performer and was Danny Zuko in Grease, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Curly in Oklahoma--all in WBL high school. He has a teaching license and did some long term subbing in WBL most recently at Hugo Elementary School. Next he worked at Infinite Campus training teachers on software that his employer makes. He got to travel all over the United States. He is married to Emily, and there are pictures of them you can check out on the vacation tab as well. Emily is a pharmacist for CVS in Targets. They moved to Washington DC so he could attend George Washington University and get an MBA. This last summer he did an internship with the Washington Nationals baseball team for his MBA program. __________My son Jake graduated from University of Minnesota with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. He is a superstar in math. He was a TA for a professor in the computer science department. He really likes to golf and was on the White Bear Lake golf team. He worked at Gem Lake so if you ever golf there, you may have seen Jake. Do you like golf? As soon as he graduated he started working full time at a company that writes online computer games. He spends his day writing code to create games. He loves that kind of writing, do you? He taught many of my students to write code in Scratch. He is engaged to a darling girl named Molly who works at his same company. She is a game tester and plays the games the guys like Jake write. They are getting married January 2. _________Vlad officially became our son in June of 2010 although we have loved him since we met him a couple years before that. We traveled to his homeland, Latvia, 3 times to make him ours. He has been living with us since March of 2010. He graduated from WBL High School too. He traveled to China with the high school a couple years ago and wants to go back. Can you believe that you can travel with your classmates and friends when you are in high school? He is currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. He spent a semester in Seoul, S. Korea in a study abroad program through River Falls. He just got back from a semester in China and is back at RF for a 5th year. _________My husband John works for Collins Electrical Company as a project manager but he is amazing with computers.
