Principal's Note

 

 

 

 

Dear Lincoln Families:

 

Our 4th & 5th graders under the expert direction of our Choral Music teacher, Mrs. Carol Prater, and our Band teacher, Mr. Ari Brown, have been preparing for their Winter Concert. The sound of joyful voices rings out from the MPR as all of our 4th & 5th graders practice the many songs they will be singing on Wednesday. Once again the Lincoln band is the largest in the district. They have learned so much since the beginning of the year and you will be amazed by their skill. We hope you are planning to join us in the BIS auditorium on Wednesday, 12/3, at 7:00 pm for an evening of music and community spirit.

Please remember that Friday, 12/5, is a minimum day. School will be dismissed at 1:30.

 

As Thanksgiving approaches it is time to take a moment to reflect back on all we are grateful for. Every morning when I arrive I am struck all over again by the enormity of the work the Lincoln team undertakes every day. The responsibility we have for the care and nurturing of your children's minds and spirits is ever present in my thoughts. I am grateful for an amazing team that focuses on the needs of each and every child, making sure that each child is honored for the unique young person they are. I am also grateful for the parent community and its unwavering support of every student and staff member. Our work would be impossible without the support you provide. Most importantly I am grateful for every child at Lincoln. Your children are generous, inquisitive, and loving. I will be forever enriched by knowing them.

 

The Lincoln Team wishes you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day filled with family, food, and fun.

 

Sincerely,

Pat
