Dear Lincoln Middle School Families and Community,

It is with great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to each of you as the Assistant Principals of Lincoln Middle School. As we embark on a new academic year, we are excited to share with you the guiding principles that shape our educational philosophy - The East St. Louis School District's Learner's Creed:

"I believe in myself and in my ability to do my best at all times. Today, I will listen, think before I speak, be respectful, responsible, and ready to learn. I will do all of these things with one purpose in mind, to do my best, and not waste this day, for this day will come no more. I am a proud student at Lincoln Middle School."

This powerful creed encapsulates the essence of our commitment to fostering a positive and thriving learning environment. At Lincoln Middle School, we believe in the inherent potential of each student and their ability to achieve greatness. Through the principles of self-belief, responsibility, and respect, we empower our students to become active and engaged learners who contribute positively to their community.

As assistant principals, we are dedicated to supporting each student on their educational journey. We encourage our students to embrace the values articulated in the Learner's Creed - to listen attentively, think critically, and approach each day with a sense of purpose and readiness to learn. By instilling these principles, we aim to cultivate not only academic excellence but also the development of responsible and respectful individuals.

We invite you to join us in reinforcing these values at home, fostering a partnership that enhances the overall educational experience for our students. Let us work together to ensure that every day is a day well spent in pursuit of knowledge, growth, and personal excellence.

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of being a part of your child's educational journey.

Sincerely,

Fernando Stevenson

Assistant Principal, Lincoln Middle School
