Town Hall Meeting

Lincoln Parents,

We are looking to hold a Town Hall Meeting on Monday, October 29, 2018 at Lincoln Elementary from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m in the gym. The purpose for holding this meeting is to share strategies and plans that are in place at Lincoln to ensure that we are providing effective learning opportunities for every student while maintaining clear communication with our families.

We are aware that the eighth grade parent meeting is scheduled to start at 5:00 on October 29, 2018 but we believe that both meetings can be held as scheduled. We need your support and involvement in our efforts to improve teaching and learning at Lincoln.

How was school today?

Asking “How was school today?” might not get you far. Instead, ask questions like these for a better picture of your scholar’s day:

  • What’s the coolest thing that happened? What wasn’t so cool?
  • Pretend you’re the teacher. How would you describe the day?
  • What made you laugh?
  • What was the most creative thing you did?
  • How were you kind or helpful today? Was anyone kind or helpful to you?

Thank you for supporting your child’s education!
