    Principal's message

    Dear Lincoln Families,

    I cannot believe March is already here! As you know, we closed out the month of February with our Flag Deck honoring students for demonstrating empathy.  During the month of March, we will keep the focus on kindness by teaching students about being compassionate.  If you are interested in books to help reinforce the message of compassion at home, here are some suggestions:

    • The Name Jar by Choi
    • Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
    • The Sandwich Swap by Queen Rania Al Abdullah and Kelly DiPucchio
    • Red: A Crayon’s Story by Michael Hall
    • A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip and Erin Stead
    • The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jenni Holm (Chapter Book)
    • Last Stop on Market Street by Matt De La Peña
    • A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip and Erin Stead
    • Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun by Maria Dismondy

    Speaking of books, this Tuesday is National Read Across America Day! The theme this year is Try on a New Hat, a way of encouraging students to read a genre or type of book they may not typically gravitate toward in their day to day reading.  We are going to celebrate this year’s theme by wearing Crazy (or regular) Hats to school on Tuesday.  As many of you know, I love a good dress up day!  

    At our PTA meeting this past week, parents had the opportunity to hear from Gabriela Quezada, our SAIL Team specialist.  Gabriela has been a tremendous asset to schools here in the Corona Del Mar zone, and she is here to support teachers, students, and families with all things social-emotional well-being.  One of the things she shared was our district’s new connection with Care Solace, a free concierge service for families within the NMUSD community who are looking for mental healthcare resources.  This is a completely free service that does all of the leg-work of finding a provider and even making appointments on behalf of families.  School district families and staff may access Care Solace services in two ways:

    1.  Call (888) 515-0595 to speak with someone from your concierge team. Representatives are standing by to take your call or email 24/7.

    2.     Visit the custom NMUSD Care Solace Page

    You are also welcome to contact me and I can get you in touch with Care Solace as well.  We are so fortunate to have this service available to our students, families, and staff.

    I hope everyone has a great week!

    Grounded in Gratitude,

    Dr. DeMicco
