Principal's Message

Dear Lincoln Elementary School Families,

On behalf of the Lincoln Elementary School staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! We hope you had a wonderful summer full of relaxation, unforgettable moments, and quality time spent with family and friends.  This is going to be an incredible year at Lincoln, and we are eager for students and families to return to campus on September 4, 2018. 

Lincoln is truly a remarkable place for students to learn and grow.  Our VISION at Lincoln is to inspire children to envision and achieve their full potential.  We are committed to helping all members of our school community strive to be their personal best.  To help us make our VISION a reality, our MISSION is to support students as they strive to be knowledgeable, to be effective communicators, to be lifelong learners, to be problem solvers, to be responsible citizens, and to persevere.  Achieving our VISION and MISSION is a team effort.  To that end, our teachers and staff work closely with our families to ensure students are supported academically, behaviorally, development

Teaching the whole child is at the heart of everything we do at Lincoln.  Our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) philosophy is a key piece of this focus.  Lincoln Leopards are expected to demonstrate R.O.A.R.S. behavior across the campus.  R.O.A.R.S stands for Respect Others, Own Your Actions, Always Do Your Best, Responsibility, and Show Empathy.  These expectations are explicitly taught, modeled and reviewed throughout the school year.  Lincoln students have multiple opportunities to be rewarded for their behavior on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. 

The teachers and staff at Lincoln are dedicated professionals who truly believe each and every child has the potential to succeed.  Our teaching staff is highly qualified, and they have high expectations for every student on our campus.  Our standards based curriculum is rigorous, and lesson design is carefully crafted to help students exceed National, State, and District standards. 

Along with our strong academic focus, the Lincoln staff and parents are committed to giving students opportunities to excel in the arts as well as technology.  With the generous support of our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), each and every student on our campus receives art instruction from a credentialed art teacher in our art studio.  In addition, parent contributions and teacher partnerships have allowed us to build a robust technology program that gives students hands-on experiences with coding and robotics.  Thanks to district support, our students also receive instruction in vocal as well as instrumental music. 

As many of you are already aware, this year we will be participating in the Newport Mesa Unified School District’s Chromebook Initiative.  Students in grades 5 and 6 will be issued a Chromebook they will take back and forth between school and home each day.  If you have a 5th or 6th grade student, please ensure you have signed the appropriate forms necessary for your child to be issued a device.  You may contact our front office if you have any questions about these forms.  Our 3rd and 4th grade students will each be assigned a Chromebook they will leave here at school to be charged each night.  Students in TK-2nd grade will have access to Chromebooks and other technology as relevant to their instructional programs.  We are excited to add these devices to our campus as they will further allow us to integrate technology into the curriculum in meaningful ways. 

I truly encourage you to get involved and become a part of our incredible Lincoln community.  From PTA to School Site Council to becoming a classroom volunteer, there are a number of ways parents can get involved at Lincoln.  The partnership between schools and families is incredibly important, and we value all that our families do to make Lincoln a wonderful place to learn and grow. 

With Gratitude,

Dr. Kristin DeMicco
