The Lincoln School Community was sent off into the winter break with a little holiday in our hearts and a shuffle in our steps thanks to the performances by elementary, middle, and high school choirs, our entertaining emcee, a snowflake performance by Grade 1, a photo collage of the first semester accomplishments, and hot cocoa with cookies provided by our generous LSPA.
Lincoln wishes everyone a wonderful winter break filled with special memories of time spent with family and friends.

Lincoln recently hosted the VI meeting of QKS which focused on improving and generating parent involvement in schools as well as a planning session for an upcoming choir music festival in January. In addition, Anne McGuiness gave a brief presentation on service searning at Lincoln School.
The recent performances of “The Grinch” were a huge success! Every student in the elementary school participated in the musical adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic, “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.” Students from PreSchool to Grade 5 sang, danced, and dazzled the crowd during the two performances. The imaginative set and costumes transformed the Globe Theater into KathmanduVille. Both performances left the audiences full of smiles and good cheer.
The show was accompanied by a wonderful elementary student art exhibition as well! A big thanks goes out to the members of our Performing and Visual Arts departments.

Continuing with the research for their service learning project, Grade 1 invited an air pollution expert to speak to the class. On Wednesday morning, Dr. Jia Li came to speak to the Grade 1 class! Dr. Li is an environmental economist with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). She spoke about her collaboration working with the Nepali government on climate change and air pollution.
Students had the opportunity to ask and answer many questions about air pollution and even found out some more things the Nepali government is working on to try to improve air quality. It was awesome to learn from another expert and get more ideas for what our class can do to help solve this problem!
