Dear Lincoln Middle Friends and Family,
The staff and I would like to welcome you to a new school year here at Lincoln Middle School. There are many changes to tell you about. We have several new staff members: Ms. Michelle Fedoruk is our new EI-Special Education teacher, Mrs. Courtney Labish will be working in Reading Support with our AARI program, Mrs. Siobhan Whitehead is also in Reading Support with SuccessMaker Reading, Mrs. Kim Goulding, formerly at LHS, will be replacing Mrs. Paulson, who went to another district, and we will soon have a new Art teacher to replace Mrs. Guthrie, who left as well.Our cafeteria has been remodeled and includes 3 serving lines. Students can choose from a regular entrée, Mexican choices, or sub sandwiches from the deli. When you are here for Open House (Tuesday, Sept. 16th) and/or Conferences (Thur. Nov. 13th), you will get to see the wonderful cafeteria changes. Our band program, through the efforts of Tom Torrento, has received $164,000 worth of new band equipment and we are excited to see the inclusion of a Jazz Band forming this semester under his direction. Students will be expected to read a novel or more throughout the year. Please encourage your son or daughter to have a novel to read during their ELT time. We are silent reading for 10 minutes each morning and they must have a reading book. This is to assist in elevating our reading scores as our teachers will be gaining reading strategies through a monthly book study for reading comprehension. We will be strongly encouraging our students to achieve at a high level and we will be heavily pushing our expectations of students coming to school every day, getting to class on time, and being prepared for class. Our new statewide test will be in the spring of 2015 and we will be working hard to prepare the students to not only raise their skills but to elevate our test scores as well. Hope to see you at Open House – A Title 1 Parent Meeting will begin at 5:30 pm with the Open House beginning in the newly renovated cafeteria at 6:00 pm.Mission Statement
