Ships Monday Memo June 1st

Distance Learning: Pass/Incomplete

As you know, information regarding our Pass/Incomplete grading system was shared with you this past Friday. Please reach out to Mr. Lee Thennes with any questions you might have in relation to distance learning and grading.


Great News! Yearbooks are being delivered today!!! We are excited to get them to you. Because we are not in session we have to be creative and safe with the distribution.

We have decided to do a “drive through” distribution.


Block 1 Monday, 6/8 8am to 10am Last names: A through Dec

Block 2 Monday, 6/8 10am to 12pm Last names: Dei through Hen

Block 3 Monday, 6/8 1pm to 3pm Last names: Her through Lim

Block 4 Tuesday, 6/9 8am to 10am Last names: Lin through Pol

Block 5 Tuesday, 6/9 10am to 12pm Last names: Pon through Sp

Block 6 Tuesday, 6/9 1pm to 3pm Last names: St through Z

STUDENTS: PLEASE HAVE YOUR STUDENT ID (or some form of ID) WITH YOU SO WE CAN VERIFY WE ARE GIVING YOUR BOOK TO THE RIGHT PERSON. If you do not have your ID, we will need you to pull aside and go through a verification process.

The process will be simple. You will drive up and show your ID to a staff member. The staff member will verify and drop your yearbook in your car.

Once we are through distributing yearbooks to all of those who have pre-ordered and purchased them, we will set up an opportunity for our near 100 books to be purchased. Drive through purchases will not be occurring on 6/8 or 6/9.

Please contact Amber Seelig ( or John Dorn ( with any questions you have about yearbook distribution.

Please be sure to contact anyone on our administration team or your teachers, if you have personal belongings in another location in the building (i.e. an item in the Band or Choir room, or another classroom).

Quarantine T-Shirts

Hi everyone,

I’ve been working with Lakeshore Screen Printing to create some quarantine style t-shirts up for sale online (see link below). Each shirt is $16, but $7 of every shirt will be donated and you will be able to decide where your donation will go from three choices: Lincoln 2020 senior graduation expenses, Lincoln band programs, or the local Salvation Army. Thanks and stay safe!

Academic Career Planning

Academic and Career Planning (ACP) Resources

Is your student looking for some career and college exploration opportunities? Xello is an online platform that helps students explore career, college, university, and trade options.

All Lincoln students have a Xello account (they have been using Xello during homeroom this year) and they can access this resource from home! Below is a suggested Xello lesson for each grade level - students can also use Xello for general career and college exploration. Lessons are optional and take students 30-40 minutes to complete.

Click HERE for instructions on how to log into Xello!

Freshman: Exploring Career Factors

Students explore important factors: work/life balance, money, making a difference, education, interests, growth; assess which of these 6 core factors are important to them when making a career decision, and why; and prioritize the 6 core factors that influence their career decisions.

Sophomores: Work/Life Balance

Students assess how their current work (school) demands affect family life, free time, etc., identify the work demands of a career of interest, and explore strategies for maintaining a healthy life-work balance now and in the future.

Juniors: Program Prospects

Students distinguish between different types of postsecondary programs, such as apprenticeships and degree programs, explore career options related to different types of programs, and evaluate their program options in terms of their strengths, academic interests, and career interests.

Seniors: Job Interviews

Students explore ways to prepare for a job interview, describe their own abilities and qualifications in the context of an interview, investigate job interview questions in the context of a career that interests them.

Counseling Center Update

The LHS Counseling Department has organized “Cafe with Counselors” for Tuesdays and Thursdays from Noon - 1pm. Tuesdays will have a Social-Emotional Wellness and Health Focus and Thursdays will have an Academic and/or Career Planning Focus. This will give interested students an opportunity to learn new skills and information surrounding these topics as well as the opportunity to virtually connect with their counselors and peers. Students who responded to the interest survey were provided the invite for the coming week. Any other interested students can reach out to their school counselor to get the invite link.
