    Staff and Scholars are in recapture the banner mode.  Lincoln lost the most improved student attendance percentage from September 2016 vs. September 2017 to Grant Middle School!   We need to get that banner back!  

    We need your help.  Be sure your scholar is attending everyday.  We will be working hard to get the banner back to where it belongs!

  • October Letter to Parents

    Dear Lincoln Families,

    The 2017-2018 school year is off to a great start even with our minor hiccup with the burnt toast on day one! We started our school year with a fundraiser for our Lincoln Gratitude Project. The purpose of the fundraiser was to get a Gratitude Journal in the hands of every Lincoln scholar. Our staff and scholars start every day writing what they are grateful for in a journal. This practice has allowed the Lincoln community to focus on health and happiness.  I am personally grateful for the support Syracuse businesses showed Lincoln during this fundraiser. Apizza Regionale, Original Grain and O Yoga stepped up and embraced our fundraising efforts. 

    I would like to thank all of our families who attended the Open House this year, we had a wonderful turnout with so many of our families attending.  I would like to recognize a special member of the Lincoln family for their recent generosity.  After my presentation at the Open House I was asked how families could help with the Gratitude Project to which I responded that we were still in need of monetary donations. This particular person came to Lincoln the following Monday and handed me $500 toward the Gratitude Project. Another Lincoln family member came in an asked if they could help out during the school day and for various after-school events which of course I said yes to. These acts remind me that we have so much to be grateful for! Thank you to all the Lincoln families that contributed in your own special ways. 

    Room 152 will be our Lincoln Family/Community Engagement Room this year. We are in the process of decorating it so it has more of welcoming feel. We have computers and other resources for Lincoln families and all of our workshops and PTO meetings will take place in that room.  Please stop in when you are visiting the school. 

    Please use REMIND to stay in touch. Download the REMIND app and enter 91010 where you would put a telephone number and text @cb6gf9 as the message. Another way to stay informed is through our website: www.lincolnscsd.com. We are also on Twitter and Facebook.

    Feedback is necessary for growth. Share concerns, recommendations, and even a shout out if you are happy with something we did. I can be reached via email @ LWhite2@scsd.us

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Best,

    Ms. L. White

  • Dancing Into The 2017-2018 School Year- Disco Style!

    Principal White and the Lincoln Administration welcomed students, parents, and staff on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

    The students entered the halls with Disco decorations and music.  Though most of our scholars probably have never heard of Disco,  they seemed to enjoy the

     light hearted atmosphere.  Our WEB leaders cheered them on as they entered the school, some for the very first time.    

     We hope to keep up this momentum for the entire school year.  Keep Dancin'!

July 2017

Welcome Lincoln Middle School 6th and 7th Grade Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year and welcome to the Lincoln community!

As a community we work diligently to maximize the effectiveness of our building staff in order to improve our school achievement data and build a positive school culture.  Our school mission is:

Lincoln Middle School is a community where students are engaged and encouraged to meet high expectations through strong positive connections that support student growth.  We recognize each child as an individual with varying ability levels and learning styles.  We consist of stakeholders who will lead and actively participate in creating an academically challenging and emotionally safe environment that promotes collaboration, honors diversity, celebrates progress, and prepares our scholars to be active life-long learners in their pursuit of higher education and career readiness.  

It is very important that we push ourselves and our students to work hard each day to achieve their fullest potential.  We are confident that our efforts to continue to transform Lincoln will cause significant student growth throughout the school year on interim progress reports, report cards, interim assessments and our New York State Math and ELA assessments in the spring.  We need the support of parents, guardians, and families so that we have 100% of our student body giving their best effort on each assessment so that Lincoln is able to demonstrate the improvements we are making on a daily basis in order to transform Lincoln in a positive direction. 

We would like to invite you to our 6th/7th grade Orientation on Monday August 28, 2017 @ 9:00 a.m. The Orientation will take place in the cafeteria at Lincoln Middle School locate at 1613 James St. Syracuse, NY 13203

 

It is our hope that this event will provide our families the opportunity to meet school staff, families and other scholars. It will be a great time to get more information about Lincoln and to see and meet new friends. Throughout the summer you will receive information in the mail like your child’s schedule and other pertinent information. Another way to stay connected is to check our website regularly. The Lincoln Middle School Website is:

WWW.LINCOLNSCSD.COM

 

During the orientation you will tour the building, lockers will be distributed and you will receive folders with handbooks, calendars and other resources that will help you get through the year successfully.

 

Please note the following days to be mindful of as you prepare your child for middle school…
