End of Year Information
Please note the schedule for this year’s events and exams: End of Year Information
by Elizabeth Gilbert ’16 and Alyx York ’16.
Poppy Dong is a current senior at Lincoln Academy from Inner Mongolia, China. Her life in China is very different from her life here; Poppy’s mom runs two kindergarten schools, while her dad owns a tech company. Poppy is also very close with her 20-year-old brother and 18-year-old cousin. When Poppy decided that she wanted to study abroad, she gathered a list of schools, applied to several and then decided to attend Lincoln Academy, similar to the college process many seniors are now familiar with. The size of the school and the many educational and extracurricular activities attracted Poppy to Lincoln. This is Poppy’s third year at Lincoln Academy. Since coming to Lincoln, Poppy has become very involved in the school’s many activities. She has managed soccer, participated in lacrosse and field hockey, and is a member of Sigma Sigma Chi, National Honor Society, International Club, Outing Club, the Leadership program, and is also a senior mentor. Although she is busy with school, including AP courses, clubs, and sports, Poppy loves to hang out with her friends, and is a face that almost everyone at school knows. Poppy’s favorite classes include ceramics and calculus. Residential life is a very important part of Poppy’s life here at Lincoln. She has been a part of the program long enough to see it grow and become a huge part of the Lincoln Academy community, and was even one of the first students to live in the new dorms. The many weekend activities and day student involvement integrate residential students into the community. Poppy’s plans for next year include another big move to attend Michigan State University to study math and education. Read more
