    Principal's message

    Dear Lincoln Families,

    Thank you to all of you who came out to count laps and cheer on the students as they participated in last week’s jog-a-thon.  This is always such a fun event, and we love having so many parents on campus to support our Lincoln Leopards.  We are incredibly grateful for all of the sponsors and pledges that help bring enrichment programs to our students.  A huge thank you to our “Kool-Aid” for planning such a successful jog-a-thon!

    This month we have been focusing on the “O” in ROARS for Own Your Actions.  Earlier this month I mentioned students have been practicing the 4-part apology as a part of owning their actions when it comes to making mistakes with their behavior.  This is certainly an important part of owning our actions.  However, I think it is also important to point out that owning our actions also applies to making and learning from mistakes in school work.  Making mistakes is an important part of the learning process.  When students are able to identify their mistakes in reading, math, science, robotics, etc., they are able to adjust their way of thinking and experience the growth that comes with learning something new.  I shared with students this past week that at Lincoln “mistakes are expected, respected, inspected, and corrected.”  I hope you will join me in reinforcing this at home as well. 

    I recently discovered there is a parent book club taking place at Corona Del Mar MS/HS to discuss The Collapse of Parenting: How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown-Ups written by Leonard Sax, MD, PhD.  I am currently reading the book and have found it incredibly helpful both as a mom and as an educator.  The book club will be meeting on Monday evening, 11/18 at 7:00 PM in the LRC at Corona Del Mar MS/HS.  The CDM PTA has extended the invitation to all parents of elementary school students in our zone.  If you have time to attend, even if you haven’t read the book, I anticipate a fantastic and insightful conversation will be taking place. 

    I hope everyone has a great week!

    With Gratitude,

    Dr. DeMicco
