Welcome to a new school year!
I have no doubt the 22/23 school year will be a great one for our school. It’s exciting to be the principal of this school community for a fourth year! As Cañon City High School alumni, my wife and I are both very proud to call Lincoln our home school. Our children will continue attending this year in 3rd and 5th grades.
This coming year, I encourage all Lincoln families to get involved. Make sure you have access to Campus Portal to keep up with your child’s progress in school. Connect with their teachers. Ask questions to clarify. Join PTO - after all, what could be better than free dinner and childcare?!?! In the end, you are a critical piece of your child’s education. We are blessed at Lincoln to have such a great community of families and welcome an open and transparent relationship with you.
One focus for 22/23 will be on refreshing our focus on our Discovery Culture through regular training for staff and then for students. Our Discovery statement is “We treat each other with dignity and respect.” Another focus will be on honing in on our already-strong literacy instruction. Please note that the district’s attendance policy has changed now that we are no longer having to quarantine classes. Take a look at Page 11 and notice that the number of parent-excused days is 8 now.
Please take the time to read through the entire handbook. Much time has been spent making sure it is up-to-date and relevant for our students and their families. Also make sure you stay current with school news on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Feel free to reach out to me any time!
