Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I'm excited to launch the new year and prepare our students to reach new heights. Through differentiated instruction that is engaging and rigorous, our students will tackle complex tasks that rely on critical thinking skills to problem solve. They will work collaboratively as they demonstrate their understanding in creative ways. Instructional technology will be used to enhance student learning and as a tool to demonstrate new learning.
This is an exciting time for our school community! As construction continues it is clear to see that our school will be a flagship for WCPSS. The main building will be finished by January 2018 and the demolition of the exterior buildings behind the school will begin. By the end of April all areas of the campus should be complete.
We will begin to recruit for our new Environmental Connections Magnet theme this year and you will notice increased opportunities for our students to engage in inquiry based instruction focused on environmental education. Two Environmental Inquiry Specialists will work with all students to build their understanding of environmental education and what it means to be a good steward of the earth.
Please consider becoming a LHES volunteer. We value our parents, guardians, grandparents, and community members and greatly appreciate the support. Volunteers are needed to mentor students, proctor, assist with lunch duty, chaperone field trips, read with students, and support our PTA. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please stop at any WCPSS school to register as a volunteer and list Lincoln Heights as one of your choices.
Thank you for supporting Lincoln Heights Elementary as we enter a new era. I encourage you to be an active part of the legacy!
