Dear SUPER Lions Families,

MESSAGE FROM PARENT PATROL
The Parent Patrol has observed an increase in drivers dropping off children in "No Drop-off" Zones at the Vallette and Hillside corner.  We are risking the safety of our students, Student Patrol, and Parent Patrol when we disregard the traffic rules.  

Let's work together to:

  1. Walk or bike to school instead of driving.  The weather has been gorgeous - take advantage of it!  The next Walk & Bike to SchoolWednesday is Sep 27.
  2. If you choose to drive your child to school, PLEASE use the car line or park where permitted.
  3. A LOT of effort went into the development of the Traffic Map, and the rules are all there for a good reason - to optimize the flow of traffic for student safety!  Please use it!  And please share it with your child's caretakers.
  4. Veteran tip:  If you need a "quick drop-off," use the Fairfield car line!  It sees much less traffic and is faster.
  5. Do NOT exit your car during drop off or pick up. 
  6. Do NOT drop off along Vallette or on the east side of Hillside (by Epiphany Church) at any point. 
  7. Follow the traffic signs at all times. Fairfield is ONE WAY during school hours! We have watched parents driving and dropping off as they turned the wrong direction off of Montrose.

A link to the traffic map is located on Lincoln's homepage (http://lincoln.elmhurst205.org) under Lincoln News. Please share this information with everyone in your family who drops off or picks up your kids.

ACCELERATION BLOCK
Our new instructional block – Acceleration for All – will start on Friday, October 6, 2017. The focus of this acceleration instructional block is to provide a second dose of literacy instruction for ALL students. During this thirty-minute block of time each day, in addition to the Reading Workshop block, support staff “flood” the grade level, allowing us to regroup students across the grade according to reading levels. Students who are not performing at grade level are in small groups and working to reach grade level expectations. Students who are performing at grade level are in larger groups for enrichment and challenge. The groups are made based on MAP scores, Fountas and Pinnell Reading Running Record Levels, and teacher input. The groups are flexible and students move based on changing needs. Our goal with the Literacy Acceleration Block is to ensure all students grow to their potential, and beyond! The teachers have worked hard to plan and prepare for the start of acceleration and are looking forward to helping all students grow.

ERIN’S LAW
Erin’s Law, House Bill 6193, became Illinois law in 2013. This legislation requires schools to teach age-appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention for grades Pre-K through 12. In Elmhurst, we already have personal safety built into many grade levels’ health education curriculum.  Beginning two years ago, after reviewing the requirements of the new legislation, we recognized that our students could benefit from additional information and strategies in order to consider past events and prevent future encounters. Our curriculum was enhanced at each grade level to cover the following:

  • Distinguishing different types of touch
  • Saying “NO”
  • It’s not the child’s fault if someone touches him or her
  • Identifying and telling a trusted adult

Again this year, an award-winning non-profit group, Imagination Theater, will deliver age-appropriate experiences for our students in 1st through 8th grade. Information about their program, called “No Secrets,” may be found by visiting www.imaginationtheater.org. Grades 1-5 will attend presentations on the morning of Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

Our social worker, Ms. Emily Cohen, will visit our Kindergarten classrooms, as they did last year, to share age-appropriate read-alouds with students as a part of the Personal Safety Unit that is already in place at our schools. Kindergarten teachers will share information with their parents.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

UPCOMING DATES
Mon. Sept. 25 – Popcorn with the Principal – Parents Only Event
Fri. Sept. 29 – Picture Day
Sat. Sept. 30 – Wizards Basketball Game, York HS at 5pm
Mon. Oct. 9 – NO SCHOOL – Columbus Day

Have a SUPER weekend!

Sincerely,
Mrs. B, Principal

Dear SUPER Lions Families,
In an effort to keep you in the loop regarding the new curriculum initiatives, and to give you an opportunity for an informal Q&A session regarding various topics, I’d like to invite parents to join me in an hour of conversation each trimester. As it’s one of my favorite treats that I enjoy on special occasions, I’m calling the evenings, “Popcorn with the Principal”. I invite you to join me for the first of these conversations on Monday, September 25, 2017 from 6-7pm and I’ll provide the popcorn. The topic of conversation will focus on the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmarking system that teachers are using to identify reading comprehension skills in each of our students. From 6-6:30pm I will share information about a student’s “level” and offer suggestions for ways you can support your child with reading at home. The last half-hour will be open to general questions and conversation. In order to help me prepare for your participation, please RSVP to me (jbarnabee@elmhurst205.org) if you are interested in attending by Friday, September 22, 2017 and with any questions that you would like answers to during our conversation. I look forward to growing together!

Friday, September 1, 2017

Dear SUPER Lions Families,
Wow! We’ve already turned the page onto a new month – SEPTEMBER! As I look back on the First Day of School, the Back to School Pep Rally, and Curriculum Night – just a few events accomplished in such a short amount of time – I grow further excited about the adventurous year ahead!

THE VALUE OF LATE STARTS
This week we experienced our first Late Start of the year. While preparing for the details on your end may have proved challenging, I wanted to give you a glimpse into the valuable, productive work that was accomplished by the staff during that 8-9:30am block of time.

  • As you may have heard at Curriculum Night, we have a new literacy assessment called Fountas and Pinnell (F&P, for short). Using this assessment system, classroom teachers take time with each of their students to identify three levels: frustration, instructional, and independent.
  • On Wednesday, we met together in grade level Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and had time to analyze the assessments we have accomplished thus far. As well, we had time to debrief as a whole staff and identify trends that will help us as we make instructional decisions for the students in our classrooms.
  • Our Late Start work this year will both promote our professional learning and focus on analyzing student work samples in both math and literacy. Together in our PLCs we will explore trends that we notice about our students’ progress and plan for differentiated instruction that meets the needs of our students.
  • Thank you for adjusting your plans each month in order to support the work of our teachers – all in an effort to provide challenging and enriching learning experiences for our Lincoln children.

CHANGE IN LUNCH / RECESS SCHEDULE ON LATE START DAYS
In order to accommodate the Specials Schedule (Art, Music, PE, Library, and Spanish) on Late Start days, we will need to adjust lunch and recess times. On Late Start days we will adjust lunch/recess times to the following:

  • 11-11:30 – 1st and 4th grade LUNCH (This is a change!)
  • 11:30-12 – 5th grade LUNCH, 1st and 4th RECESS (This is a change!)
  • 12-12:30 – 5th grade RECESS (This is a change!)
  • 12-12:30 – 2nd and 3rd LUNCH (NOT at change)
  • 12:30-1 – 2nd and 3rd RECESS (NOT a change)

Parents of students in Grades 1, 4, and 5 are encouraged to adjust lunch plans accordingly on Late Start days. 

IMPORTANT SAFETY CONCERN
During recess periods we have parents driving by, stopping and talking, walking by, coming up to the fence, and even walking on to the playground to say hello to their children. This is a safety concern because the playground supervisors do not recognize and do not know these people. While a child may recognize the “visitor”, to the playground supervisor, whose job it is to provide a safe environment, such visitors are considered strangers. Last week we had a child taken off the playground by a parent who had not checked into the office. This week we had a child walk through an opening in the fence to go talk with a parent.

  • We ask parents who wish to visit the school during the day to please check into the office first. Official designated personnel will happily and safely escort each child. Please help us maintain a safe environment.
  • One of the aspects I love about the Lincoln community is the friendly, neighborhood “feel” that exists, and all of us here in the school want parents to feel welcome and to keep that “feeling” alive. At the same time, especially when students are outside for recess and PE, we need to maintain the highest quality of safety possible.

UPCOMING DATES

Mon. Sept. 4 – NO SCHOOL – Labor Day
Tues. Sept. 5 – Bus Evacuation Drills
Wed. Sept. 6 – Fire Drill at 9am
Mon. Sept. 18 – Vision and Hearing
Tues. Sept. 19 – PTA Mtg in MPR at 8:30am
Tues. Sept. 19 – Law Enforcement “Lockdown” Drill at 2pm
Wed. Sept. 20 – Late Start
Fri. Sept. 29 – School pictures
Sat. Sept. 30 – Wizards Basketball Game, York HS at 5pm
Mon. Oct. 9 – NO SCHOOL – Columbus Day

Thank you for sharing your child with us!  I wish you all a safe, healthy, and fun LONG weekend.

Sincerely,

Mrs. B,
Principal

Ins/Outs of Lincoln: There is no doubt Lincoln is a big and busy school. To help things run smoothly we have several procedures in place. Everyone’s participation will help in providing a safe and orderly environment for all our students. We appreciate you caring, watchful attention, as well as your patience, as we help all students and families adjust to these routines. If at any point you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s classroom teacher or one of us in the office. We are here to help1

 

  • Arrival/Dismissal Routines- Students are encouraged to walk to school whenever possible. That being said, we realize parents need to drive their children for a variety of reasons. Please follow all posted signs around Lincoln. This includes time restricted access to streets adjacent to Lincoln, as well as any One-Way directions for the flow of traffic. Student Safety Patrols and Parent Patrol work together to help students safely cross intersections adjacent to Lincoln though driver alertness and caution is vital. Students are also invited to ride bikes to school. All bikes must be secured to the available bike racks located on the east side of the blacktop. Students are required to walk bikes while on school grounds. Please note that it is imperative that all drivers remain in their cars during arrival/dismissal. The car lane is a moving line of traffic and parked cars create hazards. A map of the process can be found on the school website.
  • Kindergarten Routines- Kindergarten students are dropped off and picked up on Hillside at the sidewalk in front of the glass doors. You may walk, bike, or drive your child to and from school. If you choose to drive, please use the moving car line on Hillside. To keep the line flowing smoothly, we ask that you do not park your vehicle in the car line at any time. During arrival, kindergarten teachers will be standing on the sidewalk to meet your child. Students will line up in front of their teacher and wait for the bell to ring to enter the building. During dismissal, students will be waiting in the same place on Hillside with the kindergarten teachers. Students will identify their car and/or guardian and the teachers will release them when they have visual confirmation. Please let your child's teacher know who will be picking them up on a regular basis. If there is a change in who is picking up your child, please notify their teacher or the office prior to dismissal. Please see the attached map for guidance.
  • Lunch Routines-Students, grades 1-5, may elect to stay at school, or go home for lunch. Any student who is not staying at school for lunch must have a parent note stating the date that the child is allowed to go home for lunch. Students who opt to go home for lunch are not to return to school until the end of the 60 minute lunch block. For safety reasons, any child without a note will not be allowed to leave campus. Please note there is no Student Safety Patrol during the lunch hour. Students who go home for lunch may exit the Hillside or Fairfield doors, though they must re-enter through the Fairfield entrance only.
  • Lunch Schedule- All students have 25 minutes to eat in the lunchroom as well as 25 minutes on the playground. Ten minutes before the end of each 60-minute lunch period students return to their classrooms where they have time to mentally adjust for the rest of their school day. Students read quietly or when the weather is cold and blustery, they have time to change out of their winter gear.
    • 11-12 noon 1st/4th grades
    • 11:30-12:30pm 5th grade
    • 12-1:00pm 2nd/3rd grade
       
  • Student Late Arrival Days-Once a month, a Student Late Arrival Day is scheduled to allow staff to participate in important professional development. This year, professional development will focus on 3 areas: Student Engagement, Balanced Assessment, and Culture. On these days, students are to report to school at 9:30am when supervision begins (12:45pm for Afternoon Kindergarten). Should your family be unable to provide supervision from 9:10-9:30am, please contact the school office so that arrangements can be made. There are no changes to the lunch schedule on Student Late Arrival days. The schedule for Student Late Arrival Days is as follows:
    • 9:30am Arrival Supervision begins
    • 9:37am Students enter building
    • 9:43am Tardy bell (students should enter through Fairfield after this time)
    • 9:45am Instructional day begins
    • 11:55am Morning Kindergarten dismissed
    • 12:45pm Supervision begins for Afternoon Kindergarten Arrival
    • 12:55pm Afternoon Kindergarten Instructional day begins
    • 3:00pm All students dismissed
       
  • Student Absences- Please report all student absences to the school. For your convenience there is a 24 hour number you may call to leave a message if your child will be absent for any reason. Please call 630-617-2366 to notify the school of the absence. As a District we feel strongly that regular attendance is vital to your child’s academic progress. Therefore, vacations and other planned absences are strongly discouraged. Please email Jen Barnabee (principal), Maggie Purtell (school nurse), and the classroom teacher with notice of a planned absence at least 2 weeks in advance of the absence in order for the absence to be recorded as excused.
     
  • Medications- Please contact Nurse Maggie Purtell with any questions about your child and medication he/she may need during the school day. To ensure student safety, all medication must go through the nurse’s office.
     
  • PAWS- At Lincoln Elementary we believe it is important to share our expectations for behavior in a clear way to both students and parents. Therefore, we utilize PAWS as our Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) acronym. PAWS are our school-wide expectations for students and staff, as well as anyone who volunteers and visits our school. Our PAWS
    Committee (comprised of staff members and parent representatives) structures lessons for students, and adults throughout the school offer PAWS tickets to students who are demonstrating PAWS behavior. We realize that as adults we lead by our example and practice PAWS ourselves.

 

  • P = Practice Kindness
  • A = Act Responsibly
  • W = Welcome Challenges
  • S = Show Respect

 

  • Volunteers and Visitors to Lincoln- All visitors to Lincoln enter through the main doors on Fairfield. Once buzzed into the building, visitors need to provide a state issued ID to the secretaries. Once cleared for building access, all visitors will receive a badge which must be worn during the visit, and then returned to the office upon the visitor’s exit of the building. This process helps provide a more secure environment for our students. Please plan time accordingly when attending a class program where many parents will be in attendance. On occasion, when extremely large crowds are expected, we will utilize an alternative process whereby visitors are to enter through Hillside and sign-in upon entrance to the building. Visitors in these cases, will be limited to the gym for a specific program (i.e. grade level sing). Parents will be notified when changes to the normal visitor routine are in effect.
     
  • Emergencies- While rare, we do have procedures in place for emergencies which may require the school to go on lockdown. During a lockdown, no one may enter or exit the building. Additionally, movement within the building may be restricted. While social media tends to spread the word quickly when these instances occur, please know that official school/district communication will be sent to parents as quickly as possible. Our primary focus during an emergency is student safety and communication may be delayed longer than any of us might prefer. We ask that parents do not come to the school or call the office during a lockdown as we need all staff/resources available to focus on student safety.
  • Snacks at School- Students in grades 1-5 may bring a healthy snack to school. Fresh fruits and vegetables are strongly encouraged. Due to various student and staff allergies, some of which can be life-threatening, no nut products may be brought into classrooms. Please read labels carefully. Additional restrictions may be in place in particular classrooms based on allergies in that room. Sending fresh fruits or vegetables is the safest snack, generally speaking.
  • Communication with the Principal/Assistant Principal- Throughout the school year, newsletters will be emailed with important information including upcoming dates, highlights of student learning, and other relevant information. In addition, be sure to bookmark our website www.elmhurst205.org/lincoln so that you can have quick access to everything Lincoln. To also highlight the wonderful events taking place regularly at Lincoln we are connected on Social Media through Facebook, Twitter (@LincolnD205), and Instagram. Please know, too, that our doors are always open and we welcome parents to meet with us to discuss any concerns or ideas that come along. Additionally, we will host several informal gatherings (i.e. Coffees Clutches, Popcorn with the Principal and Assistant Principal, etc.). Look for at least one of these to occur each trimester. During these get-togethers, parents are invited to drop in and ask questions, learn about different programs, and meet other Lincoln parents. We welcome open and on-going communication!
  • Communication with Teachers- Generally speaking teachers should be the first point of contact regarding concerns and/or questions about academic progress, behavior, and social-emotional growth. All teacher contact information is available on our school webpage. Please plan to join us for our Curriculum Night on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 from 5:30-7pm to meet all staff and to learn more about your child’s classroom experience (details below).
  • Parent Handbook- Please review the Elementary Parent Handbook, available on the Lincoln homepage to become familiar with important District-wide procedures and practices.

  • From 8:30-10am, Mrs. B., Dr. Podraza, and representatives of the PTA invite parents to usher in the new school year. This is an excellent time for new parents to meet other new parents and to learn about the resources and opportunities offered by our PTA. We will meet you outside and take you into the Gym.
