Virtual Meet the Teacher

Hello Lincoln Parents!
Welcome to our 2020 Lincoln Virtual Meet the Teacher Night! We know your families are busy and we sincerely appreciate you taking time to view our Virtual Meet the Teacher presentations. You can click the link below and it will take you to a Google Site where our teachers, related service providers (ie: Speech, OT), support staff (library, computer lab) and administrators are pictured. Please click on each name below the picture to view the teacher's Meet the Teacher Night presentation and to find out more information about additional support staff and school personnel. Even Mrs. Peterson and I each recorded a video for you to watch! It will be helpful to have the handouts which were sent home from your child's teacher to follow along with while watching the presentations. You can watch these videos now, later this evening or sometime later this week to help familiarize yourself with the routines, expectations and curriculum in your child's classroom/grade.

The Virtual Meet the Teacher link will also be pinned at the top of the Lincoln Facebook page and will be added to our Virtual Backpack on our website, so we encourage you to watch the teacher videos when it's convenient for your family.

Thank you again for your support so far this school year. We are grateful for you and for your continued support and collaboration.
