Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year! I look forward to another fabulous year at Lincoln Elementary School! As always, our focus is you and your children. We pride ourselves in preparing your children for college and career readiness through our instructional program. Advancement Through Individual Determination (AVID) is one way in which we will prepare our students. We will also implement Thinking Maps: A Language for Learning. Thinking Maps becomes a tool set for supporting effective instructional practice and improving student performance. In August our teachers were trained in Orton-Gillingham (OG) which is a multi-sensory approach to reading. Our intent is to have 95% of our students reading at or above grade level. OG will help us reach our goal! Check our website to read about our school wide goals as we embark on our 2017 school year journey! Buon viaggio! Here's to a very successful year!
