This week, our former Lincoln is finally having her roof covered on the Clifton academic wing. As each floor has been completed, work has continued on the interior with HVAC, electrical and framing taking shape.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank families for supporting the teachers in the work that they do with children each day. The staff at Lincoln has high expectations for academics as well as behavior and developing positive character traits in our students. Many staff members offer school homework help sessions or facilitate a club before or after school, providing an enriching experience for students. Since not all opportunities are provided for each grade level, you may not know that we have 16 different extra curricular opportunities for students here at Lincoln! Some are ongoing throughout the year and others are offered for a short, focused time period.
Parents of 3rd graders will be receiving the results of the December reading achievement test early this month. We will be working with families to design a plan to assist those students who still require some interventions in preparation for the spring administration of this reading assessment. As always, please contact your child’s teacher or me if we can answer additional questions for you regarding Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee.
On the social justice front, Lincoln students collected four boxes of new hats, gloves, mittens and scarves to donate to those in need in January. We partnered with Lakewood’s Community Meal that is held here at St. Luke’s monthly to help distribute the items. There were many grateful diners who left the evening last week with a warm meal and some warm clothing. Thank you for helping your children understand the importance of helping others when they are able.
Lincoln: Learn. Lead. Succeed.
