Lincoln TK Teacher - Ms. Paciski

Ms. Paciski (Pa-sis-key) will begin her third year at Lincoln as our TK teacher. Ms. Paciski grew up in Daly City and in San Francisco. Ms. Pacisiki studied in San Diego at SDSU and USD to earn her master's degree in curriculum and instruction as well as a multiple subject credential and a credential in mild/moderate special education. In addition to teaching high school English, Paciski taught second grade at Lincoln and was also our Resource Specialist last year.

Ms. Paciski comes from a large and loving Filipino family and has a beloved husky rescue, named Charlie.

Ms. Paciski has shown an enthusiasm for students and a depth of instructional skill I know will provide a warm and strong learning environment for our littlest Lions. Ms. Paciski has always wanted to work with our youngest students and is thrilled to join our TK/K team this upcoming year.

TK Meet & Greet 8/25 2-3pm

TK students & families please stop by Room 9 any time between 2-3 pm on August 24th to meet Ms. Paciski & tour our TK classroom. No sign-ups required.

Lincoln Communicates through Membership Tool Kit Up Today!

Lincoln Elementary School uses Membership Tool Kit to welcome you into our school community and keep you informed and engaged with what is happening. You’ll see our school directory, connect with your teachers and parents through classroom hubs, and sign up for many other Lincoln groups through their hubs. Signing up for MTK also automatically connects your family with our weekly PTA Newsletter Links. Our Links Newsletter is the best way to stay informed about school news & happenings. We will send out steps for Membership Tool Kit as soon as our platform is ready for your family to join.

Lunch Volunteers

We always need lunchtime volunteers! We will have a brand new playground for Lincoln next year so more details coming soon. Volunteering at lunch is simple, fun, and a great way to connect here on campus & with other families.
