Dear Lincoln Families,
Happy New Year! I hope that everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. Please read on to learn about:
Ms. Tomei Accepts New Position- At the onset of our Winter Break, I was approved as the new principal of Pleasantdale Elementary School. While I am excited to open a new chapter in my life, I will certainly miss the Lincoln community. This move is one that benefits me professionally and has a positive impact on my family, though it was a decision that was difficult to make. In the end, while I contemplated keeping my position at Lincoln versus the offer I had to join the Pleasantdale community, I decided that I wanted to be a model for my own children of continually seeking ways to push yourself outside of your comfort zone and try something new. As parents and adults we are constant models for our children and the children in our lives. They observe our actions oftentimes more than they hear the words we speak. I want my actions to be those of constantly striving for personal growth and professional challenge. Thank you to those of you who have reached out with kind words of congratulations. I appreciate the sentiments.
The search for a replacement has already begun and when available, more information will be shared with families.
For our students,
Lincoln Elementary School

It is a chance for students to learn about competition, teamwork, problem solving, and good sportsmanship. I will accept the first 25 students who return their permission slips. After that I may accept more but it depends on the total number of students that want to participate. If your child can only attend 1 day a week or will be late because of Patrols, please let me know in advance at email@example.com
