Dear Lincoln Parents,
Do you love art and want to help as a volunteer in the art room? I am looking for a parent volunteer to help out with the morning, or afternoon kindergarten classes that are on Mondays. There is one block from 9-10 am on Monday morning. There is another block from 1:30-2:30 pm on Monday afternoons. Please contact me if you are interested at the email below.
Dear Lincoln Parents,
The Year Ahead-
This year we have many exciting things happening regarding learning and teaching and invite all parents to join us this Wednesday night for Curriculum Night. During the evening presentations, you will be able to learn about school and district goals/initiatives as well as meet with your child's teacher(s) to learn about the year ahead. Please note this evening is intended for parents only. The schedule is as follows:
New ELA Curriculum- This year the District is implementing a new English-Language Arts (ELA) curriculum. This curriculum was written by Elmhurst teachers and is fully aligned to the Common Core Sate Standards (CCSS). Based on units of study, all students will experience the integration of reading, writing, language, speaking and listening--the essential components of a well-balanced ELA curriculum. Your classroom teacher will go into more detail about how this looks for your child. Materials will be differentiated for students based on his/her needs at any given point. Instructional groupings are flexible based on different strengths and needs in these 5 areas.
Should you wish for your child to go home for lunch, please notify your child's teacher in writing. Without a note, your child will not be allowed to leave school grounds. This is to ensure your child's safety.
For our students,
Welcome back to school! I hope you all had a great summer. I am excited to work with your children in the art department this year. We like to be creative and messy in the art room; therefore, please make sure that your child has an old T-shirt as a paint smock for the year at school. Each first through fifth grade student will also need a 9x12 spiral sketchbook for art.
Throughout the year, we try to reuse some household items to make art. Here is the annual list of what the art department is looking for this year. We would also like anything “crafty” that you don’t want anymore. We’ll find a use for it somewhere.
Old CD’s or DVD’s. If they are data CD’s, they will be completely wiped/ruined in the process of this project.
Ribbon, lace, yarn
Wooden or foam shapes, beads, colored sand, or anything crafty that you and your kids don’t want anymore.
Plastic one gallon ice cream buckets
Nuts, bolts, or metallic thingy-mabobs (no nails please)
Plastic bottle caps of various sizes
Collapsed cereal boxes
Sheets of box cardboard (shipping cardboard boxes collapsed)
The Sunday comics from the newspaper
Empty egg cartons
Please don’t send fabric. We have a ton of material. Thank you Lincoln parents for your support!

Prior to serving as English Department chair for two years at York, Mr. Doherty taught in the English Department and chaired the Theatre Department at Metea Valley High School, helping to open the new Indian Prairie District 204 school in August of 2009. He also served as an English teacher and department liaison at Waubonsie Valley High School in District 204 from 2001 to 2009.
Lincoln Principal Kathleen Tomei said, “Lincoln is also excited to welcome Tim to our team. His experience integrating high-leverage instructional strategies into teaching will prove invaluable as we work to provide our students with high-quality learning experiences. His experience in multiple grade levels, instructional coaching, and the Eureka math program couldn't be more timely. Tim has already proven to be a valuable addition to our learning community.”
