@ Lincoln & The ELC - April 23-May 15, 2019 Newsletter
G & W Receipt Contest is Ending
Check out that background! It was a sunset that Amy, Noah, and I took in at sunset a couple weeks ago from atop the mound. The trees were starting to bud out and the colors in the sky were beautiful. I had every intention of using it two weeks ago as I finished the April Newsletter...and then life got busy! Fast forward to Easter weekend and I figured I could still use it for a year-end newsletter to wrap things up. So here we are! Less than a month to go and I don't know where the time has went. We've had a fitness center unveiling, RiseNShine assemblies, Family Time implementation, state assessments, concerts, animal outreaches, and of course, a whole lot of learning going on every day. You have to sprinkle in our Gemini II Redesign efforts, Accreditation review, MTSS advancement, and it all leads to a group of teachers and students who are looking a little tired (throw in the principal as well). But there is no quit in this team we call Lincoln and the ELC. Just take a look at the calendar yet to come this year and you can see we have a lot still to do! It will be a blast making it all possible for our students. Giving them the experiences and helping them find success is what gives every staff member that motivation every day to make Lincoln and the ELC the place to be!

It’s April and that means lots of different things are happening! Spring is here, rain showers are popping up, outside temperatures are rising, grass is greener and of course baseball has started! I’ve loved baseball all my life, it is my favorite sport by far. The game has everything a sport fan desires; mental toughness, physical strength, strategy and a history unlike any other sport. I also like baseball because the lessons learned in the game can be easily applied to life.
Some say baseball is the game of failure. A great batting average is considered anything over .300. That means the batter successfully hits a pitch, on average, 3 out of 10 times. You read that right, 3 OUT OF 10 TIMES! If we got a score on a test that was 3/10 I don’t know if we would be so happy with that, but in the game of baseball it’s different. One of the first things I try and teach my players is that if you mess up on the field, try to make it up next time you’re up to bat or vice versa. Don’t let one mistake define the outcome of the game. This is also what I tell my students on a daily basis. Don’t let a mistake define who you are, learn from it, move on and grow from it. Parents, remind your child that mistakes are just part of the game of life. What defines us is how we adjust and overcome from that mistake. Until next time…. BATTER UP!
