Welcome Letter from Scott Lincoln, Principal
Greetings, We are pleased to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year and look forward to working with you to support our students.
Things have been happening here at school. We have had some fun learning experiences and tie dye with our Kindy Cub Camp. Staff have been planning, getting classrooms ready, and participating in learning opportunities. Wonderful volunteers have worked to support families by gaining and providing numerous backpacks and school supplies to students. There has also been a great deal of work preparing rooms and setting up for our new art and music programs.
We continue our efforts to support and improve upon our school-wide behavior support program. This will include school-wide efforts to support our students utilizing the brain-based “MindUp” social and problem-solving skills program. We will continue working with our expectations posters throughout the campus, participating in our Behavior Fairs, handing out Bobcat Coins for acts of respect, utilizing our Resolution Rooms to support our students in positive relations, participating in monthly school-wide behavior celebrations, and opening our Bobcat Stores for students to purchase fun items with their earned Bobcat Bucks. We have also been so lucky as to be able to hire a second great counselor to further support our students. You will find some more basics in our Parent and Student Handbooks, and learn more through reading, signing, and returning our La Center School Collaborative Agreement.
There have been some staff changes preparing for the school year. They are as follows:
– Kris McKinney -3rd grade
-Dave Williams -SpEd 3-5 resource
-Scott Holt -5th grade
-Brian Terletzky -Psychologist
-Tammy Karchesky -3-5 counselor
-Jasmine Stohr -Speech

-Nicole Blystone -SpEd behavior support
-Alicia Flanigan -SpEd life skills
-Megan Bright -2nd grade
-Teri Schlenz -4th grade
-Kathy Griffith -Library teacher
-Derek Neiman -ASK director
Our parents and families have been and always will be critical to our students’ success. There are many ways you can help out. One of the best ways is to talk with your children about school each day to show support and that we are all working on our learning together. We will have many opportunities for you to support us at school. These can be such experiences as participating in our recess program, our Bobcat Walk/Run later in September, our Bike Fair in May, our student landscaping club, and our Bobcat Stores that will open quarterly (monthly for 4th & 5th grades). You can join us for class presentations, student performances and our evening and weekend activities are fun to attend. And, of course, we can always utilize the efforts of our great volunteers. Some help weekly in such ways as helping out in classrooms or helping with our Read Naturally program. Some do not have as much time available and help us when they can, like through joining us on field trips and our classroom celebrations. There are numerous ways to help out and many do not require a great deal of time to make a difference in our students’ lives. Just let us know and we can find opportunities that fit.
We look forward to seeing what we can do to support our students and learning community during the 2017-2018 school year. Working together, this will be a great year for our learners.
