Back to school night at Lincoln Elementary School is scheduled for Thursday, August 11th at 6:30pm. 

By attending a Back to School event, parents may learn about upcoming school activities, school protocol and rules, new staff, or many other aspects of school life that can help students as they navigate hallways and learn new schedules during the first few weeks of the school year. 

Back to School Night provides the opportunity to meet teachers and administrators, visit classrooms, and receive practical information about the upcoming school year.
And because parent involvement is so vital to a child’s academic success, Back to School Night is a great way for parents to learn about and become involved in the life of their child’s school.

NEWS- Lincoln DLP recently added third class!

Great news for families interested in the dual language program: Lincoln has recently added a third class for the 2011-2012 school year. In addition to one kinder class and one 1st grade class, the district is currently hiring a third teacher that will teach a combination kinder/1st grade class.

According to studies, students in combined grade class- rooms achieve as well academically as those in single grade classrooms. Students appear to benefit from the spirit of co-operation and mutual help that exists in these settings.  In addition, because kinder classes are half day at Lincoln, the 1st graders in the combo class will spend half of their day with their teacher at a student/teacher ratio of approximately 12 to 1.

Enrolling your child now does not predicate whether he/she will be placed in the combination class; however, there are limited spaces available in the program.  Families interested in enrolling a kinder or 1st grader in the dual language program must act quickly. Please see our earlier blog on what steps to take to enroll.
