Notes from the Pride & Other Announcements
Due to the weather, the School Picnic will be inside today. If you’d still like to go outside, you may take your family to the yard on the south side of the building, but you must stay with and supervise your children.
The gym will be available to set up your “picnic” with blankets if you’d like, and there will also be extra tables set up in the lunchroom.
In order to maintain professional learning environments, classrooms will be off limits during the picnic.
LINCOLN SCHOOL PICNIC Friday, May 19th
3rd & 4th Grade: 11:00am-11:45am
1st & 2nd Grade: 11:25am-12:10pm
On the south lawn of the school building
Please keep in mind, if you plan on bringing your own lunch from local restaurants, the lines are very long at these times and you could end up being late. In the past when parents were late, the children worried their parents forgot and weren’t coming, and/or they were not going to be fed (which will never happen at LES!).
If you plan to bring your own food, please be on time.
Message from the Principal
Dear Families and Friends,
Welcome to Lincoln Elementary School! We are thrilled to be able to work with so many wonderful children, parents, and community members at LES. As always, our summer months are filled with much preparation for the upcoming school year. We have been implementing a new districtwide standards-based report card for the elementary schools in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. We have also been utilizing a new timeline to share information with parents on how their child is progressing throughout the school year. After the first six weeks of school, we will have scheduled conferences. Six weeks later, an ELA and Math Checklist will be sent home, and after six more weeks (or the end of 1st semester) a report card will come home. This cycle will then repeat throughout the second semester. We have found that this timeline of frequent communication is a win-win for everyone!
I am pleased to announce Lincoln’s theme this year is, “Lincoln Lions are a Pride of Super Heroes”. I am sure you will notice all the related decorations to the theme around the school when you come to visit. Along with our theme, students will continue to learn about the Six Pillars of Character from our Character Counts Curriculum. These pillars are: Respect, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Caring, Citizenship, and Fairness. To support these character traits, our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) Committee has created very specific rules and expectations for behavior in and around our school. We review these with all the students and staff multiple times a year for each of the following areas: playground, school bus, hallway, lunchroom, bathroom, and classroom. We also utilize a Voice Level Chart to help students gauge how loud areas around the school should be. Our wonderful students and staff have adopted these practices to create a very calm, cool, and collected school where all our students can learn and grow. I am so very proud of them all!
Finally, we have an exceptional parent group at Lincoln called PALS (Parent Association of Lincoln School, Inc.). Their regular monthly meetings are typically on the second Thursday of each month beginning at 6:30 P.M. in the library at Lincoln. They would love to have you join them. This group does so many fabulous things for our families and school. I hope everyone has a chance to attend a meeting and some events this year.
On behalf of our staff, I hope you have a fantastic year at LES! Please do not hesitate to contact us at 262-268-5800 or stop in to see us if you have any questions.
Respectfully and peacefully yours,
Award of Recognition
