Principal's Message

BtS

We will be kicking off our 9th annual Read-a-thon Fundraiser, sponsored by our PTC, on April 8th.  We will have a school wide assembly at 8:30 a.m. with some local celebrities who will be guest readers to our students.  All that week, 4/8/19- 4/11/19, guest readers will continue to come in and read to students.  We encourage parents to reach out to their child’s teacher if they would like to come in as a guest reader for that week.  Students will receive a packet of information on 4/8/19 that will outline the Read-a-thon.  They can record their reading minutes and collect pledges through 4/22/19.  Throughout the week, we will have some fun days lined up for students.  Monday will be wear something with the number one, Tuesday will be twin day, Wednesday will be to wear something with the color red, and Thursday will be to wear something with the color blue.  These themes actually reflect a well-known book.  Students can make a guess on the book and submit to the office by 4/11/19.  All those who guessed correctly will go into a drawing for a special prize.  Students are encouraged to keep track of their reading minutes.  We will have tropies for the top reader for each class.  Our overall top fundraiser will also get to be Principal for a day.  We will have a closing assembly in May to recognize our winners and celebrate reading.

For the month of March, our daily attendance average was 91.02%.  During March, we had 98 students with Perfect Attendance.  Student names will be prominently posted in our entryway of the school.  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)
