Principal's Message

Dear Lincoln Families, 
I hope this finds you all healthy and adjusting to the challenges of sheltering in place.  I don’t know about you, but the sea of memes and funny videos that have been coming my way over the past two weeks have added some levity to our current reality, and I have been incredibly uplifted by the photos many of you have shared with me for our Lincoln Instagram page.  I encourage you to keep them coming so we can spread the positivity.

I recently stumbled upon a quote from Dave Hollis, and although I had to Google his name to find out who he is, his words have stayed in the forefront of my mind: “In the rush to return to normal, use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to.”  My 4 year old son was asked by his preschool teacher to send her a video message about the benefits of being home during this time, and much to my surprise, he didn’t miss a beat in presenting the camera with a laundry list of plusses.  Although I know my little guy misses his friends at school, he thinks it is the most wonderful thing in the world that we are all home together.  Hearing his list of positives has helped me think about what is worth rushing back to and what is not.   If you haven’t already, I encourage you to ask your kiddos what they like about being home.  Sometimes our kids really are our best teachers.  

Speaking of teachers, I cannot thank our Lincoln teachers and staff enough for the work they have been doing over the past couple weeks.  They have taken on the challenges of learning new digital platforms with grace, and they have pulled together as a team to support one another as well as their students in the process.  They truly are a talented and caring group of individuals, and they are doing their very best to meet the social emotional and academic needs of all students in a virtual setting.  As students and teachers alike get better and better at utilizing the digital tools available to us, I am excited to see just how robust and dynamic virtual instruction and learning can be.

I hope everyone has a great week!

With Gratitude, 
Dr. DeMicco
