NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

Tomorrow seniors from Lincoln High School will be visiting the different elementary schools in Lincoln to celebrate their upcoming graduation. They will be at Foskett Ranch 10:05 to 10:40 AM. We are excited to highlight their achievements.


English language learners in the district, including Foskett Ranch, completed their yearly English language state proficiency tests. Results of the tests will be mailed home to students' parents from the district.


All third through fifth grade students have completed the state tests for math and language arts. Those results, when ready, will be available to parents through an online parent portal. As we receive more information about how parents will access the accounts, we will pass it along to you.


A committee of fifth grade students are busy organizing this year's student led talent show, and they are doing a great job. The student talent show date has been finalized for June 4th at 8:30 AM in the cafeteria.
