Photos for Facebook, Smore, and Twitter

I have been sharing photos on Lincoln's Facebook page, and in the Smore newsletter for parents. If I happen to be observing or if I was invited into a classroom, I will often snap a picture. If something is going on in your room, and you have a photo (no faces please, since it's for social media), please send it my way. I would love to share more of the great learning experiences we have here at Lincoln!

Curriculum Mapping

We will not be having another curriculum mapping session until the final standards are released. According to the DOE's website, the final draft of the standards will be posted on April 14. Until we feel comfortable that we have the final standards, we are putting a hold on our mapping process. More information can be found here:

Classroom Websites

Please update the information on your classroom website. I understand that not everyone is using this for weekly assignments, but the basic info (contact info, grade level) needs to be current. If you need your password, please ask John. Please consider adding classroom information to your website. This is one area parents can easily access at any time of the day.

Attendance

I am meeting with the Principals on Friday to discuss the attendance policy. If you have thoughts, please let me know.
