Lincoln Middle School
May 21, 2021
Dear Lincoln Parents and Guardians,
This "Principal's Message" affords me the unique opportunity to publicly recognize a group of people that have come together during this pandemic to benefit our staff and our students. These men and women are Lincoln parents who, during this crazy pandemic, are managing their own jobs and families and still have stepped up to the plate to commit to Lincoln students and staff. I wholeheartedly thank our PTO members who have served in the past 15 months and who have committed to serve in the year ahead. I hope this brief, unadorned paragraph lets you know that your work has not gone unnoticed and is sincerely appreciated. On behalf of our students and our staff, we thank you for your willingness to be a part of our school.
We have learned that our yearbooks will arrive sometime in June. Mrs. Atkinson will notify families when the books arrive and students and parents will be able to pick up the yearbook in the office. We are happy that we were able to secure dates for photographers and are pleased with our yearbook provider's flexibility. Thank you for your patience as well.
Have a wonderful weekend,

A Message from Mr. Steen to the Class of 2024:
This week your child was part of a Zoom presentation hosted by Mr. Suminski, principal of Lincoln Middle School. The presentation contained informational items about Lincoln, including more details related to French and Spanish. The foreign language selection form deadline has been extended to Monday, May 24th. If you have already submitted the form and your child has changed his/her mind, please feel free to send me an email and I will certainly make the change. Taking a foreign language at Lincoln is a three-year commitment and I want to ensure your child is enrolled in his/her preference.
