Please join us for Back to School Night! Our staff will give you a broad overview of course content, classroom expectations, assessment practices and academic supports.
We will start in the gym with a welcome message and overview of Lincoln’s IB mission and school climate goals. Parent will have an opportunity to learn about a variety of athletic teams, clubs, student unions, activities, and opportunities for school and community engagement.
If you are a parent of a senior, you are invited to attend a 30-minute Counselor Presentation “The Lincoln College Application Process” in Room 169. The presentation will start at 5:30 PM. This presentation is ideal for parents who would like to learn the details of how their student will manage the college application process at Lincoln and will contain the same information your student received at the Senior FLEX presentation by the counselors.
A few reminders for your planning purposes:
· Plan for public parking - there is no onsite parking for visitors
· Use the attached BTSN Schedule to record your student’s classes
· Use the attached LHS School Map to find your way around the building that night
We are looking forward to seeing you at Back to School Night! Please do not feel you need to bring your student. Our teachers are here to introduce themselves to you as a partner supporting your student’s academic success at Lincoln. We are sure you will be as excited for this school year as we are.

Our students are actively involved inquirers who think critically about the world in which they live. In addition, Lincoln students regularly participate in highly competitive 6A athletics,a host of club sports from Water Polo to Sailing and Lacrosse, and are involved in a variety of engaging and meaningful extra-curricular activities and community service projects here and abroad. Our community is one in which “parents and neighbors are welcome partners”. Parent volunteerism at Lincoln is unparalleled.
Above all else, at Lincoln it is “cool to be smart.” We are fortunate to be able to offer a rigorous core academic program and our expectation is that students are supported to explore, play, and discover their passions to build the skills they need to gain confidence and feel success. The Lincoln community then works collaboratively to provide opportunities to connect student interests and skills to the world around them to create purpose and meaning. Lincoln values the whole child, providing academic advising and college counseling as well as evidenced based social-emotional, special education, ELL, and mental health supports as needed.
Finally, Lincoln consistently earns top ratings for academic achievement, attendance and high graduation rates. Lincoln students regularly meet and exceed international benchmarks on IB exams as well as state tests. Lincoln is proud to support and produce amazing graduates who go on to pursue a wide variety of exciting opportunities. As Principal I am honored to serve the Lincoln community. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. We encourage you and your student to join our inclusive community.
