My How We Have Grown!
As we start the school year it seems appropriate to remember all the wonderful progress we have made and the amazing things happening at Dayton Independent Schools:
Let’s keep Growing!
Superintendent of Dayton Independent Schools
It has been an exciting first few weeks of the school year at Lincoln Elementary. The teachers and staff are so happy to have our little devils back to school!
Our students in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade have been working hard on their MAP tests. Our students take these nationally normed online benchmark tests three times throughout the school year. These important tests help us to track individual student progress while also allowing us to analyze how our students are performing in the areas of reading, mathematics and language compared to students from around the country. The student reports will be provided to parents/guardians at our October Parent/Teacher conference.
We are off to such a great start with the implementation of PBIS, our new positive behavior system. We also continue our Core Life Character Program as well. We have been focusing on the character traits: respect and responsibility. Students receive marks on their Devil Cards for making positive choices and can shop at the Devil Store once they have their cards filled up! We are so proud of the amazing character choices our students have been making.
We have also welcomed back all of the littlest little devils, our preschool students. All of our preschool staff has worked so hard preparing for the students’ return and it has been so wonderful seeing the kids back and so eager to grow and learn.
Our annual Mumkin Sale at Lincoln will run from September 8th – September 22nd. The money earned from this annual sale goes to providing students with instructional resources, incentives, etc. It is our main fundraiser of the year, so please consider buying a beautiful fall Mumkin from an LES student.
Lastly, we continue to encourage you to read with your child(ren) nightly. The students should have their 1st quarter Accelerated Reading (AR) goal set, so please talk to them about this goal and ask often about their progress in meeting their goal.
Please always feel free to contact us with questions, feedback, your ideas, etc. as we are always looking for ways to inspire, engage, and grow each of our students.
Proudly serving the students and families of Lincoln Elementary,
Heather Dragan, Principal Tim Chenot, Assistant Principal
