The end of the year has arrived...
We would like to wish our 5th graders the best as they move on to middle school. During their tenure at Lincoln, students have built a strong foundation that will foster success. The memories that have been created as a result of experiences and relationships will last for a long time. We thank you for the countless contributions that you have made to the Lincoln community. For the students that are returning next year, have a safe and relaxing summer!
We have several teachers and staff members that will say goodbye to Lincoln, including Ms. Sullivan, 1st grade, Mrs. Lau, English Language, Ms. Rubino, speech pathologist, Mrs. Cantore, Special Education and Mrs. Haug, reading teacher. We will miss each of them and wish them the best.
...And another year begins!

Where will you read this summer?
Hello Lincoln Families!
As you can tell, we love reading! Summer is a great time to encourage your child to read more and try reading different types of books. Summer can be a busy time, but there is always time for reading if you are a little creative.
We thought it would be fun to collect pictures of staff and students reading over the summer. We will hang these pictures up at the beginning of the year. The students will love seeing pictures of the Lincoln staff reading and we will love seeing pictures of your child reading!
Here’s what you need to do: Take a picture of your child or children reading. Be creative if you’d like! It can be while on vacation, at a baseball game, buried in the sand, in the car, while playing soccer...whatever you think. Please send a hard copy of the picture to school with your child by Friday, August 21st. We will display them at school!
Have a great summer!
