    About Us

    Ms. Schad's Den

    Dear Lincoln families,

    We made it through another successful conference week even after daylight savings time started. It is always wonderful to see so many families on campus showing support to their child/children and the teachers.

    This week we have a PTA meeting on Wednesday morning and another TK/ Kindergarten orientation, Thursday evening. Please see the attached flyer (above box)for more information and help us spread the word about our wonderful programs offered.

    This month we are focusing on showing empathy. This is a difficult concept for children to grasp. Some children do it naturally while others may need a few more examples. To be honest, showing empathy is more about actions. I like to tell our students that stopping to listen to a friend in need, not to solve their problem, but just be there for them can be a way of showing empathy. Building empathy for others is an excellent way to build trust in any relationship here at school and at home. It is a key component in one’s emotional intelligence. I found an interesting article in Psychology Today and thought I’d share some of the information with you:

    Ways to Show Empathy

    1. Focus your attention on the needs and welfare of others

    2. Key into shared values and beliefs you have with others

    3. Suspend, temporarily, your own considered judgments and critiques

    4. Listen to and attempt to connect with the person

    5. Consider sharing a related, personal experience with the person

    Enjoy your weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    All my best,

    Mrs. Schad
