Good evening, Lincoln families. This is Mrs. Parham with a message on behalf of the Lincoln team.
This message contains three pieces of information.
First, this Wednesday, March 24th, is picture make-up day at Lincoln! If you would like to retake your child's pictures, or you did not get to take them the first time and would like to now, please plan on bringing your child to Lincoln this Wednesday to get their professional photo taken. Click on the link on our Class Dojo School Story to sign your child up for an appointment to get their picture taken this Wednesday. Without an appointment, we cannot guarantee that your child can get their picture taken that day.
Second, please note that beginning next week, all of our 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students who are designated as English Learners will be required to take a state exam called the ELPAC exam. The ELPAC exam consists of four subtests, for Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. Please note that our 3rd-6th grade teachers will be testing the English Learners in their own class. This means the 3rd-6th grade daily schedules will be a little different over the next few weeks. If your child is NOT an English Learner, they will still be required to log in for online learning, but they may be given more independent assignments over the next few weeks. I will be uploading a video explaining the ELPAC in more detail this week. Please look out for this video.
Third, this summer, the Childrens Defense Fund will be offering a Freedom School as a summer school option for our students. The Freedom School for our Lincoln students will be held at King Elementary from June 15th-July 23rd, from 8:30-3:30pm daily. Preference will be given to African-American students and those in the Kennedy family of schools. If interested, please click on the link on our Class Dojo School Story for more info and the application.
That's all I have for now. Please tell your children that we love them, we care about them, we miss them, and we look forward to the day when we can all be together again soon. Take Care.
