A Message from Mrs. Myszkowski- 5/25/18

Happy Friday!


As I sit and reflect on this year, I think about how it has been such an incredible journey. I am so proud of all of the progress each student has made in order to prepare for a new chapter in their lives. From the first day jitters and being top-dogs of the elementary school to the excitement of becoming middle-schoolers, we have shared so many great memories. I was reminded countless times of how great it is to be a teacher by this amazing group of students. Each student is so very special and unique and has great things in store for them in the future.


As for me, I will continue my journey here at Lincoln next year- I will be joining the 4th grade team! I am really excited to join such a fantastic team and go back to the grade level where I began.


Thanks again for a fabulous year! I hope everyone has a great summer!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Myszkowski

A Message from Mr. Zaremba- 5/18/18

Dear Lincoln Families,


Thank you to our PTO and parent volunteers for all the recent celebrations and events. We greatly appreciate the parents’ for getting involved in the school and for their dedication to our students. The students are really enjoying the end of year activities and today’s field day was a blast. The rain interrupted the egg drop, but we will work on rescheduling with the St. John Fire Department.


Please see the attached flyer regarding Hanover Central Athletic Camps and registration. The flower gardens in the front of Lincoln need our help.


On May 19, we will start to clear and prep both gardens for planting. We welcome volunteers starting at 10:00am. If you have garden tools please bring them along. The more people who show, the quicker it will be completed. If we have a rainout, we will try the following Saturday, May 26. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dick Kutchek 374-6479. He is the gentleman that originally created the flower garden. May 29th and 30th are the dates to pick up medication from Nurse Heather.


Only inhalers with a signed consent may be sent home with student. Please look for notice in your child's book bag. All medication that is not picked up by 3:30pm on May 30th will be properly disposed of.


Note from Nutrition Services: It is time to check your child’s lunch account balance. Any negative balance that has occurred during this school year will carry over to the 2018-2019 school year. Please take care of any balances before the end of this school year to avoid being sent to collections.


If you are moving and you know for certain that your child will not be returning to Lincoln for the 2018- 2019 school year, please contact our secretary, Kim Trepton, so she can begin the appropriate withdrawal paperwork. This also applies to 4th and 5th grade students that will not by attending Hanover Central Middle School in the fall. Mrs. Trepton can be reached at ktrepton@hanover.k12.in.us .


With Leopard Pride!

Mr. Frank Zaremba

Grade Level Missing Assignment Policy

  • Unless absent or otherwise stated, all assigned work is due the following school day.
  • Homework CAN BE the result of an assignment not completed in class.
  • When returning from an absence, a student will find his or her missed work on their desk(homeroom) or in class bin. According to the Lincoln Handbook, a student will be allotted the same number of days to complete and turn in the work equaling the days absent. For example, if a student is absent two days, they have two days after they return to turn in absent work. Work will not be given ahead of time for vacations. These students will receive missed work upon their return and will also have the number of days absent to return completed work. Missing policy goes into affect when number of allotted days to complete work is up.
  • Turning in absent or last work is each student’s responsibility. Students have their own usernames/passwords for Power School.
  • For every three missing assignments in a class, students will be given a lunch detention.
  • Projects will be the only exception to the above procedure. If a project is late, the grade will be lowered a complete letter grade for each day that it is late.
  • If an assignment is turned in late, students will deduct 1 point from their conduct/behavior grade.(Conduct/behavior grade is comprised of responsibility as well as behavior)
  • If an assignment is one day late, it will receive full credit. (Current 5th grade policy)
  • If an assignment is turned in after the allotted extra day but before the cut-off for the subject, the total score will be deducted by 10% or by 1 point depending on the amount of total points per assignment.
  • Spelling- late assignments will no longer be accepted once the weekly test is given. They will be recorded as missing and a grade of 0.
  • Math- late assignments will no longer be accepted once the topic test(skill is complete) is given. They will be recorded as missing and a grade of 0.
  • Reading- late assignments will no longer be accepted once the story test is given. They will be recorded as missing and a grade of 0.

Scholastic Book Club Ordering

If you would like to order books, please do so one of two ways.

1. Send in order form completely filled out with a CHECK made payable to Scholastic Book Club

OR

2. Visit http://scholastic.com and order using code: KDD8M

Power School

Power School will be updated once or twice a week. Please check grades and make sure all grades are entered correctly. If there is a discrepancy, please send in the graded assignment with a note, and I will fix it. Everyone can make mistakes. :)


If there is a blank spot next to an assignment, that grade has not been entered and will be entered at a later date. If there is a zero and notification of MI listed next to an assignment, then that assignment is missing and the late deadline has passed.


ALL STUDENTS know how to access Power School to check their own grades. :)

Our 5 Critical Values

Ask your child about...

  • Responsibility
  • Channel One news
  • How do they like switching to new teachers throughout the day?
  • Grades
  • Behavior
  • Effort on classwork and assignments
  • Study habits
  • GOALS: What goals do the students have for themselves? Have you talked to them about the goals YOU have for them to achieve?
  • EFFORT: Are they doing their best on every assignment/activity? Are they asking for help when they need it? Are they happy with their grades?
