Welcome Back!

Lincoln staff looks forward to a happy and healthy 2019 for all. Mrs. Knoeppel showcased our School lmprovement Plan at the Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, January 9, 2019. Our work continues in the area of literacy with a Teacher Institute Day on Tuesday, January 22, 2019. Lincoln teachers will analyze student data, set goals, and continue targeted professional development in the area of literacy in order to help all students improve their literacy skills. Our goals are to increase student accountable talk, improve the use of relevant academic vocabulary, and utilize sentence stems to foster student academic conversations independently. Also, the 5Essentials Survey is open. Please take some time and complete this survey to help us improve. Students in grades 4, 5 and 6 will be taking the survey this month.

Dawn comes to us from Saint Alexis Hospital and has subbed throughout our district. Welcome to Lincoln, Dawn!
