Principal Green’s Monthly Newsletter

Parent Newsletter December 2021

I hope all is well with your family at the present time.  Just a reminder that due to our covid protocols, parents are required to make an appointment to see an administrator or teacher at this time.  We have absolutely no problem meeting with parents about their student(s), we just need to make sure we are following the protocol that has been established by our district.  Teachers or administration will not be able to meet with you without an appointment.  Please understand that we do appointments so when we meet, we are prepared and better able to address your concern(s) fully and without interruption.   Every parent feels his or her situation is important, which it is but if we already have a meeting scheduled, how is that fair to the parents who scheduled their meeting?  We are always encouraged to have parents partner with the school; we just need to be respectful of everyone’s time.   

With the fall season ending and the Thanksgiving holiday behind us, and with weeks before our holiday break, we are gearing up for an exciting month of December.  The holiday time can be a time of excitement for many but also a time of anguish and disappointment for others.   As we prepare for the holiday season, please stay abreast of the many activities in and around our school and community.  It is imperative that you remember to think about safety first!  Not only are we still living in a pandemic, but we are living in very challenging economic times and some people are desperate and willing to do anything and everything to acquire a few material possessions.  I would ask that you speak with your student about the importance of humility and services to others.   We have a responsibility to develop well-rounded students academically and socially.  Also, please remember to be careful when you go shopping at the mall, or out for social gatherings during the holiday season and stay mindful of your surroundings.  Your safety and the safety of others must be a priority during this holiday season. 

We wish you Good Health, Safety, and Prosperity in This Season and for The New Year.

Parent’s Corner

With the Christmas holiday break just around the corner, please stress the importance of academic excellence to your students.  Parents, please be sure to ask your student about what he or she learned in school each day, as students are doing some incredible things and learning a lot.  Also, students are only in school for the month of December for 13 days.  We are asking that you make sure your student is here daily and on time.  School starts at 8 am and they need to be present for home base.  There is a lot of valuable information that is disseminated during home base time, so please make sure your student is on time daily.  Students tend to slack off right before the holiday break and we cannot let valuable instructional time go to waste.  Your assistance is very much appreciated. 

Likewise, that winter is staring us in the face, I am asking that you make sure your student comes to school properly dressed.  During morning arrival, I see many students coming to school without a coat.  We understand that it is your decision as a parent if your student wears a coat or not, but I do not want them getting sick which could spread to other students as well as staff members. Additionally, please review the code of conduct and dress code with your student.  We have seen several students wear pajamas and other clothing items that are prohibited in Lincoln Middle School.   Students are not permitted to wear their coats in the classrooms, so make sure they wear the proper clothing for their comfort level.  

Students were recognized by their teachers for Student of the Month.  Please join me in congratulating them.
