Lincoln Prairie Weekly Update September 21

Good afternoon,

There are so many ideas and conversations that flood my days that I’ve come to recognize that constantly thinking and reflecting makes one better equipped to problem solve, develop those ideas and support others fully. I am sitting alongside eight Lincoln Prairie staff members and over 100 District 54 educators today thinking, conversing and reflecting on the future of our schools. Led by Dr. Nick Myers, Associate Superintendent District 54, we are immersing ourselves in ideas and research that will help continue to build on the solid foundation that Lincoln Prairie has already established.  We are proud to reflect on the ideas that Future Ready concepts like collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving have been part of the opportunities we’ve provided our students throughout the past 20 years. I was inspired by Dr. Myers’ comment, “All of these things matter. They inspire, motivate and speak to our kids!” It was a reminder that as we move forward, we are on the right path, focusing on empowering our children fully! What is a hope that inspires you when you think of your child’s future?
