October Parent Letter from Ms. White
Lots of things happening at Lincoln!
Welcome Lincoln Middle School 6th and 7th Grade Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year and welcome to the Lincoln community!
As a community we work diligently to maximize the effectiveness of our building staff in order to improve our school achievement data and build a positive school culture. Our school mission is:
Lincoln Middle School is a community where students are engaged and encouraged to meet high expectations through strong positive connections that support student growth. We recognize each child as an individual with varying ability levels and learning styles. We consist of stakeholders who will lead and actively participate in creating an academically challenging and emotionally safe environment that promotes collaboration, honors diversity, celebrates progress, and prepares our scholars to be active life-long learners in their pursuit of higher education and career readiness.
It is very important that we push ourselves and our students to work hard each day to achieve their fullest potential. We are confident that our efforts to continue to transform Lincoln will cause significant student growth throughout the school year on interim progress reports, report cards, interim assessments and our New York State Math and ELA assessments in the spring. We need the support of parents, guardians, and families so that we have 100% of our student body giving their best effort on each assessment so that Lincoln is able to demonstrate the improvements we are making on a daily basis in order to transform Lincoln in a positive direction.
We would like to invite you to our 6th/7th grade Orientation on Monday August 28, 2017 @ 9:00 a.m. The Orientation will take place in the cafeteria at Lincoln Middle School locate at 1613 James St. Syracuse, NY 13203
It is our hope that this event will provide our families the opportunity to meet school staff, families and other scholars. It will be a great time to get more information about Lincoln and to see and meet new friends. Throughout the summer you will receive information in the mail like your child’s schedule and other pertinent information. Another way to stay connected is to check our website regularly.
