Welcome to Lincoln Elementary!
Dear Parents and Families of Transitional Kindergarteners and Kindergarteners,
A warm welcome to all of our new students! This is an exciting time for your child and hope you are both ready for this year’s learning adventure. We know he/she may be a little apprehensive and you also may have mixed emotions-joy that your child is ready for school but sadness because he/she is growing up so quickly! This first day of school will mark one of the most important milestones in your child’s life.
Whether it is Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten, this year will be a time for children to expand their love of learning, their general knowledge, their ability to get along with others, and their interests in reaching out to the world. Our educational program is set to meet all that and provide a nurturing environment. Be assured that we will do our best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with real learning. The skills we practice daily are the building blocks for your child’s future success in school and in life!
