New Staff: There will be a lot of new friendly faces when you return to school. Over the summer a few LA staff have made moves to other schools. This includes: Mr. Leland, Ms Howell, Ms. Henney, and Ms. Betts.
Opportunities to be Engaged in Community: We want to encourage every student to think about ways you can get involved in the life of our school community. This can be a club, a sport, an activity, or something in the community. Our experience has proven that students who get involved are students who quickly grow in language abilities as well as truly enjoying their time at Lincoln. This is the best way to make friends!
With any questions about anything, please reach out and ask. Mr. Abbott can be reached on email, Wechat: eekabbott or by cell/whatsapp: +1 207-831-6879
