As the leader of Lincoln Middle School, I am committed to providing all students and staff with an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.  We will conduct regular safety drills that will include evacuating the building and locking down classrooms.  It is important to know that my administrative team works closely with FCPD and District security to ensure we are doing all that we can around safety.   
The staff at Lincoln is also committed to providing a Social Emotional Learning curriculum to all of our students by implementing lessons from Lion’s Quest. As a school community, we will also engage in a Kindness Revolution where we focus on completing 100,000 acts of kindness throughout the school year.  You can see more information about the SEL curriculum by visiting https://www.lions-quest.org/.  Please read the enclosed letter regarding our commitment to dealing with bullying behaviors at school.
Students will have opportunities to shine during monthly citizenship celebrations, IB recognition, and can earn incentives around the kindness initiative and their academic successes.  We hope that all students will consider joining a club or after school activity.  Our website has information about what is offered at Lincoln.  
NEED A WELL CHILD EXAM OR SPORTS PHYSICAL?
The Lincoln Middle School Health and Wellness Center will be on-site in the Care Mobile this summer on the following dates from 8:30-4:30: 
Call 488-4950 to make an appointment!
Coming into this school year, I am quite proud of the growth our students have shown in both literacy and math.  Protecting the learning environment is something I will do in order to ensure that every student has ample growth opportunities.   In rare instances it becomes necessary for me to consequence students for behaviors that disrupt the learning process and/or negatively impact our culture and climate.  I fully understand that part of the process for an adolescent is to make mistakes, grow from those mistakes, and change behavior when necessary.  My goal is always around growing Lincoln Lancers.
The use of phones, social media, and inappropriate use of computers can cause a substantial disruption to your child’s education and well-being.  It is important for you to know that phones are not permitted during the school day in any location.  Please know that you can call our front office if you need to get ahold of your child during the school day.  
Lastly, I hope you will consider being part of the School Accountability Committee.  This committee works to write goals around school improvement throughout the school year.  Email me directly if you are interested.  If you have any questions or want to discuss a concern, please never hesitate to call me.  On behalf of the entire Lincoln staff, we are looking forward to partnering with you this year and working together to foster a caring and respectful climate at Lincoln.

Warm Regards,

IMMUNIZATION REMINDER
All 6th through 12th graders are required to have had a Tdap booster. Prior to the first day of school, a copy of the immunization record from the doctor’s office must be provided to the school. Please plan to bring this with you on your student’s registration day if he/she has received ANY new immunizations this summer. Colorado law (Board of Health rule 6 CCR 1009-2) requires all students attending Colorado schools and licensed child care to be vaccinated against certain diseases, unless an exemption is filed. Vaccines are recommended for hepatitis A, influenza, meningococcal disease and human papillomavirus, but are not required. Exceptions: 
• Medical exemptions only need to be submitted once. 
• If a non-medical exemption is selected, it must be submitted annually for students K-12. You may be asked to sign an 
   exemption during registration if your student is not up-to-date on their immunizations or you do not choose to 
   immunize.
• Options for submitting medical and non-medical exemptions can be found on the Vaccine exemptions page at 
   www.colorado.gov/vaccineexemption . revised 1/14/2019

Summer Reading Program for incoming 7th graders

Parents, 
We were excited to send your incoming 7th graders home with a summer reading book, and our hope is that each student will foster the habit of daily reading for pleasure. We included a brief summer reading assignment along with the book, which will be scored as their first (criterion A: Analyzing) grade of the semester and springboard our conversations around literature. Thank you for supporting your students and your language and literature teachers in this endeavor. If you have any questions, e-mail Mr. Wilson richardw@psdschools.org. Have a terrific summer!  Rich Wilson, LIz Kennedy, Peter McFeely
