Message from Dean of Students

Hello Families,

Welcome to a new school year! We are so incredibly excited for a great year of learning and growth for all of our Lincoln St. students. I look forward to serving you all for my second year in the role of Dean of Students.

Our collaboration with families is key for the success of students. We wanted to send a reminder of the importance of consistent attendance for students. We want all students regularly attending and accessing their grade-level learning!

It has been a great first month here at Lincoln Street. Our students have been consistently demonstrating respect, responsibility and safety in classrooms, hallways, cafeteria, and out at recess. In October, we are focused on demonstrating the social emotional competency of Self Management.

This year we will continue our Lynx Leaders program to recognize student leaders around the school. Students can talk to classroom teachers if they would like to become a Lynx Leader at our school.

Thank you to all families for your support and encouragement from home, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all!

With appreciation,

Haley Christensen

Dean of Students


Mrs. Clark Kinder Class

During the first few weeks of school, we put a strong focus on practicing classroom expectations and routines, so we have a strong foundation to start the year off with. Students are learning how to do math centers, daily five rotations and writing practice.

Mrs. Leon Aguilar Kinder class

Kindergarteners are focusing on following directions, routines, and trying their best. In math we are learning about classifying, counting one by one, and the numbers 1 to 5. In language, we are learning vowel sounds with movements and rhymes.

Ms. Sanchez kinder class

We are practicing routines in Kindergarten! We have been busy learning classroom and school wide routines. In Math we have been learning how to categorize different objects by size, shape, color, etc. In language arts we have been building our reading stamina and we have also been practicing our vowels and their sounds. It has been very busy in the Kinder classrooms!
