Welcome Letter From The Principal
Dear Lincoln Elementary Parents,
I want to officially welcome you to the 2019-20 school year! As a school family, we are excited to welcome your children back to Lincoln. We would also like to welcome the new kindergarten students and new students to our school!
This is my fifth year as principal at Lincoln Elementary. Before becoming a principal, I taught Special Education at the secondary and elementary levels for 16 years. I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know each of you this year and work together in the educational process. I am a believer in communication and honesty and I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component of student success. Building strong relationships between home and school is vital to increasing student achievement. My door is open and I welcome your input.
I would like to introduce and welcome the following new staff to our building:
Charlotte Davis, 3rd Grade Teacher
Susan Green, ESL Teacher
Each new employee comes highly recommended from previous positions and we are fortunate to add them to our team. You will have a chance to meet all of our teachers at our Back to School Night on Monday, August 19th from 5:45 – 7:00 p.m. Class lists will be available and you will have an opportunity to sign up for PTA or School Community Council. These organizations provide essential support to our school community and new need good people like you to serve on them.
School Hours: M-Th 9:15 – 3:35, Fri 9:15 – 2:20
In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 8:30 AM as there is no supervision before that time. Also, please pick up y our children by 3:45 PM in the afternoons and by 2:30 PM on Fridays.
Before/After School Program
We offer a Before and After School Program for families that are interested. The Before School Program begins at 8:00 AM and provides math and reading help on the computer. The After School Program consists of Homework Help from 3:45 – 4:40 PM. From 4:40 – 5:30 PM students can participate in an educational activity. There is a fee to participate in this program. For more information, please contact the front office.
Arrival Times and Attendance
The school day begins at 9:15 AM every day. Please support your child’s success by having them here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and unprepared. All students who arrive after 9:15 AM must sign in at the office. In addition, good attendance is crucial to your child’s educational success. If your child will not be present please notify your student’s teacher and contact the office at 435-245-6442.

This year the school lunch will cost $1.95. Breakfast, which is served from 8:45 – 9:10 AM, will cost $1.30.
