Sunday Messenger: Week of Sept 7-11, 2020

Hello Juarez-Lincoln Families, 

School continues this week through Distance Learning.  Our staff will continue to strive to create the conditions for an excellent and meaningful Distance Learning experience. Students and teachers will continue connecting every day and students will develop literacies in the language arts, math, music, art, science, and physical education.  We will strive to also ensure our students develop social and emotional wellness, as well as their inner potential.

Please support in ensuring your child has a set place to learn and connect with his or her teacher every morning at 8:15am.
