Message from Our Principal

Our administration, faculty, and staff will continue to provide your child with the very best educational opportunities available to them. We are redesigning Lincoln High School into the Career Academy & Pathways Model for the 2014-15 school year. The students will receive career exploration classes in the Ninth Grade Academy, along with a rigorous core curriculum, which includes Algebra I, English I, Biology I and World History. World Language study in Spanish, French, Latin and American Sign Language is also offered.

 

Students in Grades 10-12 are in one of our Career Academies. The Academies are as follows:

 Arts (Horticulture or FAPA Pathways) 

 Sciences ( Health Sciences or Environmental Sciences Pathways)

 Professional Services (Law or Business Pathways) 

Additionally students are eligible to be accepted in one of our four Career Technical Education (CTE) programs:

 1.Applied Horticulture

 2.Business Accounting

 3.Business Technology 

 4. Health Related Sciences 

 Our goals are to help students gain academic excellence, cultivate creativity, and develop social skills.

 Please continue to help us make school a successful experience for your child each day by doing the following:

  • Making Attendance the First Priority - Students with attendance rates of 90% or higher generally attain an average grade of "B" or better.
  • Showing You Care by Getting Involved - Become a Home & School Assosciation and/or School Advisory Council volunteer, schedule a conference with your child's teacher, and take interest in daily homework assignments.
  • Supporting Your Children and Setting a Positive Example - Sometimes school can be challenging for students, but talking about their school experiences and looking for the progress they have made can make a big difference.  

 In addition, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Monthly School District Calendar, and School Website as they highlight upcoming events. 

 We are ready to face the challenges of the upcoming school year. Together we are making a huge difference in the lives of the students at Abraham Lincoln High School.

 Sincerely, 

 Ms. Bonnie Uditski, Principal
