Principal's Message


Sandra Kozelka
Principal, Lincoln Elementary

Dear Lincoln Families,

Happy October to your family as we move into autumn in northeast Ohio!  Things are in full swing here at school and we have many programs and activities underway. 


Intervention Block instruction has begun at all grade levels.  This “all hands on deck” approach gives each student at Lincoln 40 minutes of daily reading instruction targeted to their required skill level.  Students are grouped in order to target those specific skills that result in needed intervention or enrichment opportunities. This Intervention Block is in addition to the core curriculum that students receive daily in language arts and depending on the grouping needs of each grade level, this instruction may be delivered by a teacher other than your child’s homeroom teacher.  Please contact me if I can provide further information to your family about this important part of our school day.


Our entire student body has been working to earn “Caught Being a Leader” tickets in all areas of our school for following the rules and exhibiting leadership qualities of cooperation and respect.  Each Friday, 5 tickets at each grade level are chosen at random and those students earn a turn to dive into my treasure box. Please see more information about “The Leader in Me” in this publication.


Finally, I am getting a long-awaited knee replacement at the end of the month. Mrs. Sandy Powers (retired principal from Hayes) will be my substitute while I am recovering. I look forward to being back at school as we return from winter break.

Lincoln:  Learn. Lead. Succeed.


Sandy Kozelka
