Message From The Principal
We have had a great start of the school year! Students have set up their learning goals for the year, pre-assessments have been done to identify the strengths and needs of each of our students, and teachers are already collaborating to provide the rigor and supports our students need in order to have a successful school year!
As you already know, parent collaboration is crucial, and appreciate you working side-by-side with our teachers to support each other. We also need your support establishing homework habits at home. Students should be reading 15-40 minutes a day (depending on the grade level). They should also be practicing their math concepts as it applies to their every day life. Whether we are working with pounds in the grocery store, adding the price of the items being purchased, or helping learn fractions while cooking, students should practice math concepts every day.
We also want to invite you to our Parent Informational Night. This is an important opportunity for you to hear about all the programs we offer at our school; find out how you can help your
student at home; and provide feedback about ideas for future workshops and any
other feedback/concerns you may have. Our goal is to ensure the success of every
student at our school by developing strong partnerships with our families.
Have a wonderful October!
Message from Family Outreach Liaison
My name is Mery Rosario Palma. I am the new Family Outreach Liaison for Lincoln Street Elementary. It is a pleasure to be able to serve our families in the best way I can! I was previously employed at West Union Elementary as a Bilingual Assistant, I worked with students, but a lot of my time was also spent communicating with my non-English speaking families in which I loved to do! My specialty is helping! I love to help! I came from a family with little to no resources and not being able to speak English was also a barrier. I know how difficult it can be wanting your children to succeed, but struggling to find the resources. I watched it first hand and that is why I am here! I want to help you, help your family! My goal is for families to feel included, supported, and comfortable getting involved in their children’s academic lives! There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing I made a difference! I am so passionate about what I do and I can’t wait to start this journey and see where it takes me! I am here to work with you and be a team, that is why communication is vital in order to be able to assist you correctly! Please feel free to reach out to me at 503-844-1167 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to meeting you all!
Back to School Night
I hope to see you all there!
