The school year is quickly approaching and we are so excited for our students’ first day, August 17th, to be here! Our teachers and staff members have been working tirelessly these last several weeks preparing for the students’ return. Along with many of our returning dedicated and exemplary teaching and support staff members, we are delighted to have several new and eager members added to our team for this school year. We can promise our students and families that our entire staff is committed to our school’s mission statement: The Lincoln School Community is dedicated to providing the opportunity to develop a positive learning environment, which encourages each student to attain his/her optimal level of achievement.
The new school year not only brings some new faces, but also some new initiatives. Our theme for this school year, that will also appear on the students’ agenda books, is “I am proud of the person I am becoming.” This theme comes from our upcoming work with the program Core-Life. Core-Life is an elementary school program designed for building student character and enhancing school spirit, culture, and climate. We are honored to be the first elementary school to implement this important program school wide and are convinced that our students will be positively impacted by the lessons and activities that will be implemented throughout the entire school year. Our families will be highly influential in this work as home components will be embedded and sent home on an on-going basis. Please be looking for more information.
We wanted to remind students of their summer learning challenges. All kindergarten and first grade students were given an activity calendar, while our second through sixth grade students were each provided with a grade level picture/chapter book. Students need to have their books read by the first day of school. Those students taking their AR test on their grade level book before school begins will be rewarded with a special incentive during the first week of school. Mrs. Young, our school librarian, is opening the media center/computer lab on August 9th, 10th, 11th and 15th from 1-3 pm and also during our Open House for students to take their quiz. Students may also take their quiz at home. Please encourage your child(ren) to finish reading their book or complete their activity calendar by August 17th.
We are both very excited and honored to have been selected for our new leadership roles at Lincoln. Both of us have dedicated our professional careers to the education of our Little Devils, which makes this opportunity even more special to each of us. We encourage our families to reach out to us throughout this upcoming school year with any of your questions, concerns, ideas, etc.
Proudly serving the students and families of Lincoln Elementary,
