The school year is quickly approaching and we are so excited for the students’ first day, August 16th, 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 responsible and respectful”. This theme comes from our upcoming work with the program Core-Life and PBIS. Core-Life is an elementary school program designed for building student character and enhancing school spirit, culture, and climate.
For the 2017-2018 school year we are proud to announce that we are a PBIS School. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports. School-wide PBIS is a systems approach for establishing the social culture and individualized behavioral supports needed for schools to achieve both social and academic success for all students. We are dedicated to positively influencing children to make good decisions while attending Lincoln Elementary School
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 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 16th.
We look forward to seeing everyone on these upcoming evenings! Please mark these important upcoming dates on your calendars:
Wednesday, August 9th – Readifest in LES Gymnasium from 1 – 3 p.m.
Thursday, August 10th – Open House for grades 1 – 6 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Monday, August 14th – Kindergarten Open House
Wednesday, August 16th – First Day of School for the new school year
Proudly serving the students and families of Lincoln Elementary,
