IMPORTANT THOUGHTS FROM THE Lincoln Elementary School COMMUNITY

THINGS PEOPLE APPRECIATE

Positive school community –

I appreciate the level of involvement and parental support at Lincoln. We have an awesome sense of community!

Great staff! –

They are very committed to our children, and they empower a sense of community with the students and their families.

STEM/Steam support –

I love seeing the school support the arts and sciences by having a robust Meet the Masters Program, PTA Reflections participation and Egg drop event. Only a few examples. Even in-classroom activities support STEAM.

School traditions –

We love the school traditions that they have maintained like Egg Drop, Halloween Parade, etc. that rally the spirit of the kids. Even though the school has a diverse body of students, these events make the school seem like a big family. We appreciate the funding for music classes too.

good parent involvement –

new online sign up techniques are helpful for helping out when I’m not able to be lead on a project>

SOME CONCERNS

Expand the music and art teaching time –

I feel it is paramount to a well-rounded education to include music and art.

Is the latest technology being used to teach our children? –

Technology

Class size is too large –

Too many students in each classroom which compromises the quality of education. When the budget crisis is over all the measures taken to cut cost should be reversed, most importantly the class size.

Report Cards –

I strongly dislike the new grading system. With S as the best you can get, there is no incentive to strive for improvement and excellence. Grading should have a broader spectrum, as to encourage our children to exceed expectations…not just meet them.

Implementation of the common core without aligned curriculum. –

OTHER THOUGHTS SHARED

Importance of education –

I feel like there is a genuine concern for my children’s education. I believe that they are being prepared properly for their future in respect to education.

iReady –

iReady done on a weekly basis takes all the computer time available to the students. This can be very disheartening and discouraging to the students. Other computer skills are taking a back seat to iReady.

Lunch option –

We wish that there were more variety in the lunch menu.

The PTA involvement seems outstanding. It is important to have teachers –

working to meet the Common Core as well as the needs of the parents. Likewise it is critical that parents support what teachers are attempting to accomplish in the classroom.

Our principal does a great job supporting student needs. –

I know that I can turn to the principal when I am having a difficult situation with a student.
