Welcome to the Lincoln-Thomson Elementary School
Dear Lincoln-Thomson Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
I am excited to introduce myself to you as the new Principal of the Lincoln-Thomson Elementary School. I have been employed by the Lynn Public Schools for 23 years. Last year I was the Program Specialist at the Julia F. Callahan Elementary School. Prior to last year, I had been at the Lincoln-Thomson School for 17 years. I have been a Library Media Specialist, a Classroom Teacher, a Curriculum Instruction Teacher, an ELA/Math Specialist as well as the Acting Principal. I come in to this position with years of experience and dedication to the students in the Lynn Public Schools, and especially those at the Lincoln-Thomson School.
We have had an excellent start to the new school year! I have recently been through all of our classrooms and I have seen lots of excited and smiling faces from both the faculty and the students alike. I have also had many interactions with parents, faculty, and students. From these conversations, it is clear that there is a collegial partnership between all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic experience for our students.
As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you support your child’s learning by ensuring that your child:
- Comes to school every day, on time and ready to learn
- Completes all homework assignments
- Reads daily at home to improve literacy skills
- Knows that you expect your child to succeed in school to become prepared for college and/or careers
I would also like to encourage you to join our incredible PTA and participate as much as your busy schedules permit. It is also a wonderful opportunity to get to know your fellow parents and find out how you would like to be involved.
Our greatest initiative will be to continue to work together to provide differentiated learning opportunities for each student with challenging and engaging learning experiences. I am confident that together, we can make the Lincoln-Thomson Elementary School the best place for our students to learn and grow.
Mary L. Foster, Principal
