    Lincoln School Song

    We're proud. We're true, Lincoln School we love you. Our white, our blue, scholars through and through.

    We learn, we lead, preparing to succeed. It's great to be a Lincoln Leopard, yes indeed! It's great to be a Lincoln Leopard, yes indeed!

    Principal's message

    Dear Lincoln Families,

    This week is National Red Ribbon Week, a time for us to talk with students about respecting themselves, making healthy choices, and living a drug free life. The theme for this year’s Red Ribbon Week is “Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.” In the spirit of trying to keep as many Lincoln traditions alive, and of course, to have a little fun, we are going to celebrate Red Ribbon Week with a different theme each school day.  We hope all of our Lincoln Leopards will join us in wearing the following:

    Lincoln Red Ribbon Week (10/26-10/30)


    • Monday: Show you are Proud to Be Drug Free by wearing Red to school.
    • Tuesday: Show Lincoln Leopards are Drug Free by Wearing a School Shirt/School Colors
    • Wednesday: Student Free Day (No School)
    • Thursday: Sock it to Drugs by wearing Crazy Socks to School 
    • Friday: Say “Boo” to Drugs by wearing your Halloween Costume to School


    In the spirit of 2020 keeping us on our toes and nudging (okay maybe pushing) us to demonstrate our flexibility, this week marks the first of five weeks when Wednesdays are going to follow a different pattern from the one we have (almost) gotten used to:

    • Wednesday, October 28th: Student Free Day (no school for students)
    • Wednesday, November 4th: All students (both cohorts) learn from home
    • Wednesday, November 11th: Veterans Day (no school for students)
    • Wednesday, November 18th: All students (both cohorts) learn from home
    • Wednesday, November 25th: Thanksgiving Break (no school for students)

    Over the next couple weeks, teachers will be finalizing report cards and scheduling / holding parent-teacher conferences.  Conferences are optional this year, and they will be held via Zoom.  Please be sure to let your child’s teacher know if you would like a conference so they can coordinate a time with you.  Report cards will be available in Aeries on November 3rd.  Please note this is one day later than originally shared in a previous communication.  We will be sending step-by-step directions for accessing the report card early next week. 

    Difficult as it may be to believe, this is the final week of October.  That means it is time for us to have a virtual Flag Deck! At this month’s Flag Deck, we will be honoring students who have been demonstrating Respect all month long.  Students will view the Flag Deck with their teachers on Friday, but I will also send a YouTube link to families so you can tune in as well. 

    One last thing before I close.  Please, please, please, do not double park in front of the school.  If you see a parking space along the curb, you are welcome to park completely in the spot and allow your students to exit the vehicle.  Although I completely understand being in a rush, double parking creates an unsafe situation for students and parents in front of the school.  If you prefer not to park your car, you are welcome to utilize carpool drop-off toward the rear of the campus.  Thank you so much for your cooperation. 

    Grounded in Gratitude,

    Dr. DeMicco
