Penn-Lincoln Lions ROAR!
Message from Mr. Hicks, Principal
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
I am honored to have the opportunity to join Altoona Area School District and Penn-Lincoln Elementary.
This year will bring many curricular changes to Penn-Lincoln, but one thing hasn’t changed—our commitment to providing your child with an outstanding education. My vision for Penn-Lincoln is to provide an exceptional education for every child, every day and in every respect—academically, socially, and behaviorally. We will realize this vision by cultivating relationships and trust and by developing an unshakable expectation and drive for achievement. Already, the conversations I have had with staff have shown me their resolute commitment to caring about—and making a difference in—the lives of your children. I couldn’t ask for a firmer foundation to build upon.
I want to encourage all parents and caregivers to take an active interest in your child’s learning. We are on the same team. We will do what it takes to help your child succeed; but, we can’t do it alone. Please take some time every day to read with and to your child. Share with them the importance of doing their best every day. If they know that you value their education, they will value it, too!
Please do not hesitate to contact me at 946-8396 with ideas and questions that involve our students or our school. Further, if you have a concern about something, please call in right away and we will gladly investigate or clarify the situation.
I’m excited for what this year has to offer, and I’m looking forward to meeting many of you at Meet the Teacher Night, August 23, from 4-6 p.m.
Principal, Penn-Lincoln Elementary
