Principal's Message

BtS

Our PTC had another successful Pumpkin Palooza in October.  We had 50% of our students attend with their families.  It was a fun night for all with music, a coloring contest, and free books.  The Book Fair was open and in a short time, sold over $1300.  Winners from the coloring contest were determined by our 6th grade students and recipients got to spend money at our Book Fair.  Money from this will help to get our teachers and students more free books for the classrooms!  Our next family event will be Family Bingo in January!

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 October, we had 113 students with perfect attendance and our daily attendance was 93.98%, very close to meeting our goal!  Our 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)
