Please take a few minutes to see what Lincoln’s Critical Race Studies students have been working on this year. Kudos to Lincoln teacher and Equity Specialist Ms. Mallare-Best for empowering students to stand and facilitate courageous conversations around race and the role of whiteness in a predominantly white state, city and school. We want to particularly thank LHS parent Chris Crever, owner of Cine Rent West Film Company, for his incredible support that resulted in the making of the video at the link below. Cine Rent West Stage Manager and Film Maker Bryden McNew adeptly captured the commitment and passion of our students and teacher. We also want to thank all of the family members, teachers, district leaders, and students who came to the Race Talks to participate in our student led Socratic Seminar Exhibition Night. Please enjoy the short film at the link below and please contact Cine Rent West at the contact information pasted below if your club, team, or program is interested in hiring their staff to make a short or longer documentary celebrating LHS student involvement. We’d love to post several on our website to share with the community. Cine Rent West’s work is incredible.
Dear Current and Prospective Lincoln Families,
Welcome to Lincoln High School! We’re proud to be one of the top 100 college prep International Baccalaureate (IB) high schools in the United States with thriving, Fine and Performing Arts, STEM, Business, Culinary Arts, and Spanish Immersion programs. In addition to Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German, Lincoln is excited to be one of a handful of schools in the nation to offer Arabic to high school students.
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 email@example.com if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. We encourage you and your student to join our inclusive community.
With Warm Regards,
PPS Bond project work is continuing on many fronts.
Water quality teams have replaced water fixtures in the first group of 15 schools and are now retesting the water for each school. When the water test results show that the quality of the water coming from the drinking faucets is better than the EPA recommendations for schools they are turned back on. The water is now flowing again at Astor, Chapman, Hayhurst, Richmond, Sacajawea, Skyline, Woodstock and West Sylvan.
In case of a fire, students know to evacuate the building at their teacher’s direction. In case of an earthquake, students know to brace themselves under their desks and protect their heads and necks. But what happens after those events? What happens if a school crumbles or burns, leaving students and staff without a way to contact parents and families?
Last week, Capitol Hill Elementary School attempted to answer those exact questions.
