Principal's Message

BtS

We had a busy month of October and it seemed to fly right by us!  Our PTC coordinated our first fall family event, the Pumpkin Palooza.  We had a decent turnout on this night.  Many of our students and their families were enjoying the music, making some crafts, and checking out the books at the Book Fair and our Free Book stacks.  Our PTC has also organized our fall fundraiser.  The money earned from this will go back to the school for future events for our families and educational opportunities for our students. Our students continue to earn their Eagle Tickets for being Kind, Responsible and Ready.  As of October, students have collectively earned 293 tickets.  Check out our school wide thermometer at the top of the stairs for updates.  In addition, when students have collected five Eagle Tickets, they can turn them in to the office for special recognition.  These are hung outside our office door. For

For the month of October, our daily average was 93.54%!  During October, we had 117 students with Perfect Attendance.  Student names will be prominently posted in our entryway of the school.  We are asking families to help us reach this goal by having your child attend school regularly and on time.  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)
