Farewell to SY21-22!

Farewell to SY21-22!

Dear parents

We are so proud and happy to be finishing a wonderful year of growth and change.

Our children deserve recognition and celebration for the effort and energy it took to re-adapt to being at school, to learn new math practices, to re-learn about in-person conflict, and how to work with others.  They should be proud of themselves.

Our educators deserve recognition and celebration for their responsiveness to their students.  Returning on campus after two disrupted years was not easy and still had its share of disruptions, but they maintained a continual path of forward progress and growth.  They should be proud of themselves.

And you, our parents, deserve recognition for the support, love, and energy you poured into your children this year.  You supported us with mandated quarantines or safety measures and joyfully returned to campus once we were able to welcome you once again.  You should be proud of yourselves!

We are lucky to have celebrated on campus at our End of Year Assembly on Thursday, June 16.  While we are genuinely sad to see the year end because it brings to close a year of connection and joy in the time spent with our students, we are all in need of a vacation!  

For those of you leaving Lincoln for good, we wish you all the best on your next steps.  You will forever have a home with the Condors!  For everybody returning, please see below for some information about August.

I wish you well!
Ms. Becky

 

Report cards

Report cards will be sent to parents on June 16. If you experience technical difficulties please contact the DOIT team. You can also email Ms Brenda.

Digital Yearbook

We are going to begin publishing our yearbook virtually to allow it to be taken all over the world (without taking up physical space in a shipment!)  Please email Ms Brenda.

Student Placement for SY22-23

As shared in May, we will not finalize student placement until the last week of July. For the first few days of school, students will have the opportunity to work virtually with students across the school and their grade level. This allows us to account for shifts staffing and in student enrollment before we finalize our class lists.

Student learning during the break

Our children need time to relax, engage in their own interests, play without guidance, be bored, and take a break from screens. We encourage daily reading which can be done independently, done with a sibling or parent, or even by listening to books on tape. Please join in our Vacation Library Reading Challenge and help us reach our goal of reading for 50,000 minutes as a community!
Additionally, our team has pulled together a Lincoln Virtual Learning Camp .

These are a range of activities that are for exploration, education, and more.  

Uniforms for August

Uniforms for students are required. Please read our uniform guidelines to know what to purchase for August.  

Student Supply Lists and Sustainability

We are not asking for any school supplies from parents for the coming year. There may be times throughout the year (or even at the start), where we ask for one or two small things. However, we have made a conscious effort to use what we have and reduce our use of single-use items. 
You can help us with these goals by sending reusable lunch and snack containers for your children (avoid ziplocs, straws), sending reusable water bottles for use every day, and by being conscious about what you send or bring on campus for classroom celebrations. Look for more information on this next year.
