This is Lincoln Elementary principal Kerri Jent with some important announcements as we close out our week here with our Tiger Nation.
First, we would like to make you aware of a few important newsletters going home with your child this Friday. If you have a DK-3rd grade student, there is an information packet and letter about MIchigan's Read by Grade 3 law. After you read through the documents please feel to call me with any questions you may have. You will also see a pamphlet to help further understand this law. Next, you have a letter introducing Mr. Williams our behavior supervisor. He works alongside all staff to work through behaviors and provide positive support while creating relationships to move forward with our students. He is a wonderful asset to our tiger community.
Today there was a PP posted on our FB page and our school website. This PP informs you about our parent involvement plan and how we service our students that need extra academic support. Please take time to watch this PP. In conjunction with this PP we are offering a great opportunity for all families...recently, we provided professional development for our staff from a gym called Fortitude Strength. We are continuing this professional development wrapped around taking care of ourselves. During these uncertain times it is important that we be mindful in taking care of us.

Lastly, we look forward to celebrating Halloween next week, we will be having a Halloween parade on Friday, Oct 30th outside beginning at approximately 11:00 am. parents are invited to park in our front parking lot. You will be able to view the parade and take pictures as students walk from the Kindergarten doors, down the sidewalk and enter back into the building by the gym. We kindly ask that you take pictures and wave from a distance as we continue to make student safety a high priority at Lincoln. Also kindly send your students to school in costumes that are school appropriate and costumes that avoid any weapons, blood and gore.
Our teachers also look forward to connecting with you for a phone conference on either Oct 29th between 4:00 & 7:30 and Oct. 30th between 12:30 and 3:30. If you have not called the office to set up your conference time kindly do as soon as possible.
