We hope that everyone had an enjoyable holiday season, and we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We look forward to this New Year and the many great things that will take place in 2019 for our students of Lincoln Elementary. The LES staff will continue to be committed in finding ways to enhance our current programs and strategies for our students, while also pushing ourselves to learn and implement new learning opportunities as well. We welcome our students’ families and our community members to LES to help us implement our district’s mission to Inspire, Engage, and Grow EACH of our students. We invite each of you reading this article to come and be a part of our school’s community. We promise that we will work with you to find a way to involve you in a way that you are comfortable with that will undoubtedly make a difference for our students. Consider reaching out to us to become involved as a volunteer at Lincoln. We need YOU!
We want to thank everyone who joined us for our annual LES Holiday Program that was held on December 21st. We were so excited that over 375 guests joined our students and staff in the Dayton High School gymnasium for this fun-filled program that highlighted every LES student performing. We also want to thank the generous donors who contributed to our Family Resource Center during the holiday season. Our director, Mrs. Gina Byrd, worked tirelessly to ensure gifts of food, clothes, and toys were distributed to our students, which were only made possible due to your generous donations.
We are excited to announce that Lincoln Elementary School was one of only four schools in the region to be the recipient of the Scripps Howard Foundation School-Bookfair Project. On January 17th and January 18th every student in preschool through sixth grade will get to shop a Scholastic Book Fair all due to the generous donations of Scripps Howard employees. There will be news coverage on WCPO on January 17th as we are the first school in the region to kick-off this exciting project. We are so grateful to receive this generous book gift which will allow students to receive books to take home and continues our district’s steadfast commitment to literacy.
Please continue to read the Dayton Community News for the amazing happenings ahead in 2019 for our students, families and community. We look forward to working together to build our school strong for EACH of our Little Devils!
Proudly serving the students and families of Lincoln Elementary,
