MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
Our July e-newsletter video highlights our outstanding Summer School program that runs from June 15-July 1 and July 6-July 22. Lincoln-Way teachers Jeff Render and Elizabeth Pawlicki share why they enjoy teaching Summer School and describe the classroom environment. Four Lincoln-Way students explain why they signed up for Summer School and what they are learning. The students are Allison Plourde, Raegan Skoglund, Cassidy Sutter, and Mackay Doran.
As many of you know, our Board of Education is currently working on a deficit reduction plan that must be submitted to the state in September. We held a special board meeting last week to hear from the community and take comments and questions on this issue. Approximately 400 people attended and another 550 provided their input through our online feedback form.
It’s clear that members of the community and the Board are in agreement that Lincoln-Way should not eliminate a class or extra-curricular opportunities. Throughout July and August, the Board will consider the other two scenarios of closing a school or going to referendum. The majority of comments that we have received favor closing a school with the understanding that a referendum does not guarantee we could keep four schools open.
On July 16, our Board will continue to examine the data involved in developing a deficit reduction plan. We are committed to protecting our record of academic excellence and fiscal responsibility that Lincoln-Way families deserve.
For more information on the issue, visit the Financial Update page of our website.
Summer at Lincoln-Way
Lincoln-Way students have taken advantage of numerous activities to stay engaged over the summer, including marching band, tennis tournaments, ROTC leadership training and an educational trip to France, to name a few. And our teachers have invested hours upon hours in professional development – read about it in the Curriculum Corner. One thing is certain: our focus is right where it needs to be….on our students.
Congrats to the Lincoln-Way East softball team on their second place finish at state.
Lincoln-Way science teachers sharpen their skills at a Renewable Energy for Educators Conference.
