Principal's Message

BtS

 Students in grades 3-6 will be participating in the state standardized assessment system, eMPowerME for Math and English/ Language Arts.  This is an online testing format where students utilize technology to participate in the assessment.  The staff at Lincoln will be participating in training around this to prepare for the testing protocols.  The testing window is from 3/16/20- 4/10/20.  The testing timeframes will be first thing in the morning.  It will be important for students to have a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast, and arrive to school on time.

Attending school regularly is important to the academic success of our students.  At Lincoln, attendance is always a goal of ours.  Each month, we strive for 94% school wide daily attendance rate.  For the month of February, we had 124 students with perfect attendance and our daily attendance was 90.26%, below our goal!  Our students get recognized on a monthly basis for their efforts.  When students are sick, we certainly want them to stay home, but we appreciate our parents’ efforts with their attention to this.   Establishing consistent routines at home, such as checking student planners, a place to do homework, and going to bed at a good time will contribute to student success. 


Educationally Yours,
Mrs. Gauthier

Lincoln School Report Card
autism_awareness
The Maine Department of Education released this year's letter grades to all Maine schools.  We are proud to say that Lincoln's report card for this year is a B (280 points).  We went up 13 points and a letter grade from our previous year score.  We went up in all but one of the sub groups. The grade is based on our NECAP (New England Comprehensive Assessment Program) three-year average scores in reading and math, as well as our PAAP (Personalized Alternate Assessment Portfolio) results.  The scores reflect the school’s overall students who met/exceeded proficiency, students who showed growth, and the growth of the students who scored in the bottom 25% from the previous year.  Lincoln staff will continue its efforts with improving instruction in the areas of math, reading, and writing as well as providing our students with direct support to meet their academic needs.  (2014 Report Card)
