Principal's Message

A Message from your Principal

Dear Lincoln Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to a new school year! I am so excited to be starting my second year as a Lion and I cannot wait to welcome your child(ren) back to school on Tuesday, August 8! As we launch into the 2023-2024 school year I have some exciting news to share. Our school has officially been accepted as an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) Candidate School.

The IB PYP is an inquiry-based educational framework that fosters a love for learning and encourages students to become active, caring, and lifelong learners. It focuses on developing essential skills such as critical thinking, communication, and collaboration while nurturing students' natural curiosity and creativity.

Throughout the year you will start to see shifts in your child’s classroom experience as they engage in meaningful and relevant learning experiences and explore global themes and real-world issues. This education framework aims to cultivate a strong sense of international-mindedness, promoting understanding and respect for diverse cultures and perspectives.

For more information on IB PYP, please visit our school website at or the IB website at You will also want to pay special attention to the weekly parent newsletter, The Lion’s Roar, for regular updates on what being an IB PYP Candidate School means for Lincoln. We will have various parent information sessions held throughout the year to provide additional information on our progress towards IB authorization. And as always, keep updated on what’s happening in our classrooms by following our social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

As parents, your support is crucial in helping us create a successful learning environment. I encourage you to be actively involved in your child's educational journey by attending school events like Parent Information Night, Parents on Point, Open House, etc., joining our site PTA, and maintaining regular communication with your child(ren)’s teacher.

I am thrilled to embark on this IB PYP journey with you and your children, and I look forward to a year filled with growth, discovery, and excitement.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about the IB PYP, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Let's make this school year a memorable and enriching experience for all!

Dr. Erica Jenson
