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 25th Parent/Teacher conference.
We are off to such a great start with our continued implementation of PBIS, our school-wide positive behavior system. 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. We are so proud of the amazing character choices our students have been making.
Our annual Mumkin Sale at Lincoln will run from August 31st – September 17th. 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. This year there is an online purchase and payment option, too.
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
