The Lincoln Lightning

"Your SPARK of information!"

September 17th, 2021

Hello Lincoln Families!

We finished our first full week of school and I couldn't be more proud of our students and staff. We continue to look to our district theme of 'Growing Stronger Together' as we think about the goals we are setting for the upcoming year.

I've had the opportunity to engage in activities in all of our classrooms this week, and whether students are learning about mathematics, language arts, Spanish, or science... I'm noticing that they are doing this learning as a classroom community. One of the things we value most about being back in school together is the opportunity to engage in ''discourse'. Discourse is a verbal exchange of ideas. It's with this sharing and with targeted discussions that we learn and grow.

The thoughts and ideas shared by our students fill my heart with joy, hope, and inspiration. They are insightful, thoughtful, funny, and kind. What an amazing group of students they are!

Have an incredible week and I hope to see you tonight at our Back to School BBQ! *It's not too late if you want to attend - tickets will be available at the event!

Be well,

Michelle Miner, Ed.D

Principal, Lincoln Elementary

Student Dismissal Form

All teachers will walk students out of the building every day as we dismiss at 3:20pm (2:20pm on Wednesdays). It's important that we are aware of your child's dismissal plan to assure the safety of all our students. Please fill out the following form for each of your children who attend Lincoln School. If there is a change of plans, make sure to let the teacher and our office staff know before 3:00pm (2:00pm on Wednesdays). Teachers do not always have an opportunity to check their emails/voicemails before dismissal, so double-checking with our office is a good way to ensure students know the plan. Thank you!

Free Breakfast and Lunch 2021-22

We will be providing free breakfast and lunch, provided by Sodexo for the 2021-2022 school year. A grab-and-go breakfast will be available for all students from 8:00-8:15am as they enter the building during our soft-landing. Students will eat this breakfast in the classroom as they prepare to start their day.
