Double Olympic Gold Medalist Leads Lincoln Swim Camp!

It was an absolute pleasure and privilege hosting double Olympic gold medalist, Penny Heyns, at Lincoln School last week. It was a fantastic learning experience for our swimmers and coaches. Each day, Penny Heyns would focus on one of the four competitive stokes, before leading an intense training session for our swimmers. While this was appreciated greatly, of arguably even more significance were the quality of her sports psychology classroom sessions that focused on mental toughness and many of the character traits that help us to become successful in life. Thank you, Penny Heyns, for sharing your expertise with our students and staff!

Class of 2026 is Moving On Up!

This Tuesday, the grade five students and their families got together for the highly anticipated grade five moving up celebration.  The students flexed their memoir writing and presentation skills as they looked back on the year and spoke about lessons learned.  The audience was then treated to a video from the overnight field trip the students went on earlier this month.  As has been the case for the past couple of years, the students and their families then took part in a “Guess the Baby” game.  There were more than a couple “Awwwws” and plenty of laughter as the school year comes to an end in grade five.

Thanks to all those who came to celebrate with us!

Elementary Spring Music Showcase Success!

A shared love of music reverberated around Lincoln’s very own Globe Theater last week as Elementary School Music sensation, Iris Kolodji, directed a Spring Program for the ages!

Opening with George Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm” the Elementary School showed their skills playing instruments, singing songs, and dancing their way through a variety of music.  Small groups, stunning soloists, and class songs were sprinkled throughout the program keeping the audience entertained and engaged.

We are already looking forward to next years showcase!

 

 

 

 

 

Third Grade Pitches to the Panel!

On Wednesday, May 8th, five brave 3rd graders graced the stage with poise and eloquence, as they “pitched” some of their persuasive arguments to a panel of judges and audience members. The standard of public speaking on show was terrific, with the students exhibiting a confidence that belied their years. The topics presented ranged from cleaning Nepal’s rivers and water conservation in general, to trying diverse cuisines, bringing more mathematics to school, and different ideas for indoor recess. A special thanks to Mrs. Rachel Hull and Mrs. Meenakshi Rana for guiding the students’ learning and a big congratulations to our young speakers!
