Note from the Dean

Hi Abes!

In a Lincoln parent/guardian book club this week, we discussed the importance of rest. In order to show up for our families and communities, we need to take care of ourselves, whether that's exercising, meditating, getting our hair done, taking a drive, or intentionally finding quiet time to just be. We are busy, we are tired, we are overextended. We need to give our bodies permission to rest and recuperate. In light of Women's History Month, rest is especially critical for women and a form of resistance. "We must practice rest as our foundation to invent, restore, imagine, and build." - The Nap Ministry

Have a restful week.

Take care of yourself,

Saraswati Hendrix

Credit Recovery Through Edgenuity

We are offering credit recovery through a program called Edgenuity this spring. This is a voluntary program for students who would like to earn credit for a previously failed course. We would like to see if you and your student are interested in earning credit outside of the school day towards graduation requirements. At this time, students can take 1 credit recovery class at a time and we are prioritizing credit recovery for core content classes.

If you are interested in signing your student up for a credit recovery class, please complete an interest form by clicking here. Once you complete the form, a school counselor will contact you with more information, including our credit recovery contract.
