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 ECC parents and guardians! February is now upon us and it is the official start of African American History Month, which is a time to celebrate the lives and legacies of those early pioneers and forerunners who have gone before us and whose tireless efforts were instrumental in creating the fabric of today’s society. Throughout our program and within each classroom, ECC students will be engaging in a variety of learning activities that will teach them about the lives of significant historical figures and their contributions that have shaped our world today.

Some of the activities that we planned include our teachers reading stories and selecting musical selections that will enhance students’ overall learning experience related to African American history. Attached you will also find a calendar, which highlights additional activities that have been tentatively planned for the month of February in celebration of African American History Month. Please carefully look over the attached calendar, as some of these activities will rely on parent participation in volunteering within the classroom. There will also be a culminating activity held at the end of the month on February 28, 2018. We will send additional separate notes home in advance of scheduled activities as reminders to parents.

February will be an eventful month - in addition to learning activities centering around African American History Month, students will also be participating in Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day activities. There will be an activity on February 2, 2018, to celebrate Groundhog Day as well as an activity on February 14, 2018, to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Lastly, there will be no P.M. classes held on Wednesday, February 7, 2018. This will be one of our regularly scheduled half day early release days. Teachers will be participating in afternoon meetings. On Friday, February 16, 2018, there will be no school as well due to a Teacher Institute Day. Staff will be participating in various professional development activities on this day. There will also be no school on Monday, February 19, 2018, in observance of President’s Day.

I would like to again extend a hearty thank you on behalf of myself and the staff at Bellwood Early Childhood Center for your continued support of the program mission and vision! We look forward to your participation in this month’s activities!
