Posted 08/11/2019 05:37PM

Dear Lincoln Families,

It is my honor to extend another warm and heartfelt Lincoln welcome to you as we draw near the beginning of the 2019 – 2020 school year. The first day of school is quickly approaching – Monday, August 26, 2019. This year promises to be an exciting one, filled with lots of learning and growing. We are proud of our school, our students, our staff and the outstanding community of parents and patrons that provide wonderful support to Lincoln. We've had a busy summer getting ready for the students return. Our summer work is complete and the building will look as beautiful as ever thanks to the diligent efforts or our custodial crew.

There are some new faces and changes at Lincoln this year. I am pleased to share with you the following information about changes involving staff members at Lincoln:

  • Mrs. Ashley Wey – K (AM and PM Kindergarten)
  • Mrs. Allison Higgins – Grade 4
  • Mrs. Kathryn Seiferth (formerly Ms. Kennedy)
  • Mrs. Sarah O'Shea (formerly Ms. Davies)
  • Ms. Caitlin Brown – Grade 2 (Semester 1 substitute for Mrs. McLaughlin)

In an effort to stay connected with all of our families, I will post my weekly e-newsletter with important school information on my blog at and on the Lincoln website at Please make sure to check my blog, the school website and your e-mail regularly for updates and other information about Lincoln. Make sure that you have updated your email address(es) posted in your student's Dashboard account. Dashboard went live on Friday, August 9th. Families are able to access the students' teacher assignments at this time. Please contact the school office if you have issues accessing Dashboard. We will continue to sustain and enhance the rich tradition of educational excellence at our school so that every student experiences individual success in and out of the classroom.
