Roaring Reader Report
The Latest Update on Lincoln's Reading Initiative
Roaring Readers is making a difference at Lincoln!
Celebrating READING is so much fun!
Before and After School Opportunities
Reading options remain for students each morning. Mrs. Ewers maintains a quiet, free-reading space in the Ben Carson Reading Room and Mrs. Galloway continues reading enchanting books with students of all ages before school in our library. Students are currently enjoying HARRY POTTER! At Lincoln, time spent waiting for the school day to begin or the bus to arrive is an opportunity for growing minds in enjoyable ways.
Roaring Readers - School Interrupted
Dear Families and Staff of Bristol, Kingsport, and Sullivan County Schools: We have continued to consult with the Sullivan County Health Department, the Tennessee Department of Health, and the CDC since our last communication, receiving updates and information related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and how it affects school operations.
As of 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020: The closure of Bristol City Schools, Kingsport City Schools, and Sullivan County Schools has been extended through Friday, April 3, 2020. This includes all extra-curricular and athletic activities. Please be aware that assessment of this situation will continue and any changes regarding additional closures or when and how school will resume will be communicated to you as soon as possible.
Packets with instructional support in literacy and math will be provided to our Lions during this unprecedented time. Included in those support materials will be a reading calendar that WILL act as documentation for students who read 20 minutes each day. It is our sincerest hope that our efforts to create a culture of readers thrives despite the irregularities in our school routines for this temporary period of quarantine. Ideally, we will have much to celebrate once students return, healthy and well-read!
