Lincoln Elementary School is a neighborhood school serving the population of southwestern Augusta. Lincoln is one of the newest schools in Augusta having opened in September of 1988.
Lincoln meets the varied needs of its students through a variety of programs. In addition to the fourteen regular classes there are: a gifted and talented program, a Title One program, a Project Pride program, a computer lab, a library/media center, a variety of special education programs and Art, French, Music and Physical Education programs. Lincoln's staff works hard to provide an academic program which challenges students to achieve to their highest potential.
It is hard to believe with the mild weather we have had thus far, but the official mark of winter is just around the corner! Having the proper clothing for outside play such as hats, mittens, boots, snow pants and jackets, will make for a more pleasurable recess time for students. Once the white stuff starts swirling and coating our playground, students will be expected to wear their outer gear during recess times. Labeling these articles of clothing will help us return lost items that do not get claimed. Parents can check our Lost and Found box, located in the cafeteria, for any missing items.
For the month of December, we had 110 students receive the Perfect Attendance recognition. Their names will be prominently placed on our attendance bulletin board as you walk into the school. For the month of December, our overall school attendance average was 92.77%! This is slightly below our monthly goal of 94%. As we move into cold and flu season, please contact the school when your child will be out. If possible, provide doctor’s notes to verify the absences. Teachers will make the necessary efforts to provide students with make up work from when they are out. Attending school regularly is important for students with establishing consistent routines and not getting behind with their schoolwork. We appreciate our parents’ efforts with getting their children to school and on time daily!

Lincoln School NECAP Data
Our NECAP (New England Comprehensive Assessment Program) results for 2013/ 2014 are in. These are the state standardized assessments that students in grades 3-6 take yearly over math and reading. Students in 5th grade take a writing test in addition to the math and reading. We are proud to say that our students’ scores went up in both reading and math, which are looked at to determine Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP): Math 65% (up 8% points) and Reading 74% (up 7% points). Our writing scores dipped slightly, 51%, (down 6%). We are very proud of the work being accomplished at Lincoln! The professional development opportunities around math and writing have helped to sustain our growth. We will continue our focus in these areas and looking for interventions to support our students. Staff will also be looking closely at the released item questions to identify student misconceptions with specific skill areas to be addressed for the remainder of this year.

Lincoln School Report Card
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.
