Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. My name is Cynthia Pursell and I am the new Principal of Lincoln Elementary. Many of you know me as a familiar face as I have been at Lincoln for 6 years as the Learning Director before taking on the Principal role. I am excited to be able to continue working alongside you and your families as we help our students grow not only academically, but socially and emotionally. Working together we can ensure that Lincoln provides a supportive environment in which each student can reach their highest potential.
At Lincoln, our staff and students are striving to live by R.O.A.R. each and every day. We are committed to being Respectful, being On-task, being an Achiever, and being Responsible in and outside of the classroom. Through R.O.A.R. we show our Lincoln Lion pride and strive to do our very best.
As parents, you can help your child be successful and R.O.A.R. by ensuring that they are developing healthy habits regarding school attendance. School success goes hand in hand with good attendance and ensuring that your child is coming to school every day on-time, helps your child feel better about school and themselves. We also want to encourage you to get your child to school early so that they can have breakfast in the cafeteria. This year breakfast and lunch are free for all HESD students, regardless of income.
I look forward to an amazing school year with our Lions. Thank you for your ongoing support and please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of any assistance. Feel free to call, email, or message us on REMIND.
