Lincoln Primary

Welcome to Lincoln Primary School where early learning begins. The Early Childhood program for Bellwood School District 88 recognizes that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. We value this relationship and work in partnership with the family to enhance your child’s development and deepen your knowledge about the importance of early academic learning and interventions. 

Our preschool program strives to use play as a tool to provide three to five-year-old children with the skills they need to develop a strong foundation to become lifelong learners. Children are provided with the opportunities for both structured and free-play allowing them to develop essential learning skills such as early literacy and number sense as well as following directions, cause-effect relationships, critical thinking, and conflict resolution. Development of these skills will prepare students for a seamless transition to kindergarten. At Lincoln Primary it is our goal to educate the whole children as we prepare them to be lifelong learners and globally responsible citizens.

A Message from Our Principal

Greetings Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank you for your support--throughout the school year, but in particular, during African American History Month. We greatly appreciate and value your presence during our many activities throughout the month as well as your at home support! We had quite an eventful February and look enthusiastically ahead to additional exciting learning opportunities and experiences.

As we move into the month of March and forge ahead throughout the remainder of the school year, I’d like to remind you of our featured quote that will guide us throughout our downhill journey to the end of the school year. “Always aim for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” This quote serves as a reminder to us all to draw from our inner funds of excellence and to manifest that excellence in all that we do. Therefore, as our students go throughout their day, our teaching staff is engaging them in rich vocabulary, helping students to identify the elements of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math in their everyday play and encouraging our students daily.

Please continue to work in concert with our teaching staff to reinforce what students are learning in classes at home. Additionally, please work with your child(ren) on letter, number, and shape recognition. This can easily be done as you move throughout normal daily routines--help your child(ren) identify letters, numbers, and shapes in the context of their everyday environment. As you go for a car ride, help your child(ren) to discover letters and numbers on street signs, basic shapes within houses and buildings, and common words printed in the real world.

In closing, please note that there will be no school on March 5, 2018, in observance of Casimir Pulaski Day. At Bellwood Early Childhood Center, we will observe Read Across America Day with in-classroom activities on Friday, March 2, 2018, and we will also host family literacy night on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. Finally, there will be a scheduled early release day on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, and spring break begins Friday, March 30, 2018. Have a wonderful month!
