Meet the Principal

Hello Colt Families! 

Welcome back to school! We are excited to open our classroom doors to you this fall. We have  so much to look forward to as we grow, learn, and have fun together this year. Lincoln Crossing  is proud of its collaborative approach to student learning, its focus on individual student  leadership, a strong commitment to the visual and performing arts, and the community of  professionals and families that make it all happen! 

This year, we are facing some new changes – There is some uncertainty with the  implications of public safety power shutdowns, smoke, and COVID-19 this year. As a team, we will need  to work together to find the right balance between school safety, school culture, and providing a  supportive, nurturing learning environment where our students and staff feel safe and have fun  while learning and growing. 

We deeply believe “It’s a Great Day to Be a Colt!” and we hope you’ll agree that LCES is a great  place to be. We are actively working together as a team to support each child’s academic, social  and emotional well-being starting on day one. This year, we’ll continue to hone in on math  instruction, and expand our work in language arts. We will continue our work on supporting  students and staff to develop a growth mindset that helps us remember that persistence, good  habits, hard work, and productive failure and frustration lead to success in school and  relationships. 

Student and staff leadership is an important component of our school culture and we want to  empower every member of our community to put their best self forward and to celebrate their individual gifts and talents in the classroom, on the playground, and while on campus. 

It’s a Great Day to Be a Colt!
