Principal's Message

BtS

It is that time of year where we will be sending students off for their long awaited summer break.  It is important to keep students’ brains active over the summer to maintain learned skills and prevent the summer slide before their return to school in the fall.  We will be sending home resources on the last day of school and sending out reminders on our Facebook page (Lincoln Elementary School- Augusta, ME).  Make sure to visit our local library, Lithgow, to get in some good beach reads.  Students in grades 5 and 6 can get a jumpstart on our Maine Student Book Award (MSBA) challenge for school year 21/22!
As a reminder to our families, class lists will be finalized over the summer and mailed home in August.  We have many students who move in and out of our school.  As a result of this, we have to make several adjustments to our class lists to balance students out appropriately.  Balanced class sizes are important with delivering instruction to meet the needs of our students.  Therefore, in our Welcome Back to School letter sent out mid-August before the start of school, students will learn about their new classroom teacher for the 21/22 year.   School supply lists will go home with students on the last day of school, but will also be posted on our Lincoln website as well for families wanting an early jump on back to school supplies over the summer.

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)
