Principal's Message

BtS

This year, we have new core values at Lincoln School:  Kind, Responsible and Ready.  When students are seen modeling these qualities, they will be given a red Eagle Ticket from the staff member who ‘caught’ them.  Our goal is to help build these qualities in our students intrinsically.  At the end of the day, students will share who received an Eagle Ticket and add to their class marble jar.  During our monthly Citizen Assemblies, we will tally our school-wide totals.  The staff will establish some school-wide goals for students to achieve and receive some fun treats throughout the year!  Our school-wide total thus far is 425 Eagle Tickets earned!
We continue to recognize Perfect Attendance by the month, with a goal of 94%.  We are off to a great start so
far!  For the month of September, our daily average was 96.80%!  During September, we had 171 students with Perfect Attendance.  This is our highest total ever! 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)
