Principal's Message

Principal, Lincoln Elementary


Dear Families,

As we round the corner into December, we have many family-friendly events happening here at Lincoln and welcome your visit.

On the curriculum front, in two weeks, Lincoln will be hosting a staff developer from Columbia University’s Teachers College.  Jessica Someck will work with K-2 teachers from several Lakewood elementary schools.  During the rotations of the day, Ms. Someck will create a collegial environment where teachers learn side-by-side and then work in Lincoln classrooms to practice their craft of teaching reading under the coaching eye of Ms. Someck.  Not only is this a wonderful experience for teachers and the students of those classrooms, but many other students are commenting, “I didn’t know teachers had to go to school”.  This has provided a natural way to talk about life-long learning.

Then, on the social justice front, Lincoln students are showing leadership skills by having planned three recent events.  First, we donated over 50 pounds of shared Halloween candy to American Troops and Veterans in mid- November.  Then, we began our “Fill the Crib” initiative to provide new pajamas to needy children.  Finally, December finds us collecting food for our Holiday Food Drive.  The food that we collect will be distributed to families through Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation. We are proud of the efforts and caring attitudes of our students.

Lincoln:  Learn. Lead. Succeed.

Wishing your family a festive holiday season,

Sandy Kozelka
