Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Linthicum Elementary School! Linthicum Elementary has been a cornerstone of the community for over 100 years! We have a staff that demonstrates their dedication to student learning on a daily basis. Linthicum Elementary, historically, has had high family and community involvement. Studies show students are more likely to reach their full potential and demonstrate success when there is a strong partnership between the school and families. We encourage our families and community to get involved by registering to be a volunteer, joining and participating in the PTA, and attending school and PTA functions throughout the school year.

     Our goal, at Linthicum Elementary, is to challenge our students to become independent learners and thinkers by pushing themselves further. Our society, as a whole, struggles to support students in the area of social-emotional development and well-being. We believe that academic and social-emotional growth go hand-in-hand. As students are faced with challenges and are encouraged to keep pushing themselves, it is important that they learn how to handle successes and meeting milestones as well as learning to cope with disappointments and failures with positivity and resilience. To ensure students are college and career ready, we want our students will leave elementary school with strategies that make them adaptable, help them to persevere, and teach them to show gratitude and kindness, making them productive and thriving citizens of the community.
