Seniors Host Graduation Dinner

On Thursday, May 23, the Class of 2019 hosted a memorable Graduation Dinner that included family, close friends and Lincoln School faculty and staff. While the event was hosted by long-time Lincoln students, Prakriti and Vishesh, each graduating senior had an opportunity to deliver a speech to the almost 200 people present highlighting their time both at Lincoln and in Nepal, as well as thanking all the influential individuals who have been a part of their lives. The speeches were quality, the food delicious, and a wonderful evening was had by all. Congratulations to the Class of 2019 and their proud families!

Students and staff lined the hallways showering the Seniors with glitter and confetti, congratulating them on their accomplishments before the Class of 2019 did one final dance in “Lincoln’s Got Talent” with their P1/G1 buddies! What a Walk, Class of 2019!

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!

 

 

 

 

 

Lincoln Celebrates Unity and Diversity at International Day

KATHMANDU, Nepal. — Last Saturday, Lincoln School celebrated International Day with a diverse array of cultures, cuisines, musical performances, and service initiatives. We are proud of how we embrace our diversity at Lincoln School and were so pleased to see many of our families join us for the event  and participate in the Parade of Continents and International Luncheon, as well as observe students present some of their service-learning projects and musical performances. Finally, a special note of thanks to all the families who brought food for this event, the Board candidates, and especially to the LSPA for everything they did to make the celebrations such a success.

Talent Shines at Open Mic Night

At the beginning of March, High School Student Council hosted a very successful Open Mic Night/Talent Show. We had many amazing performances. From 6-7, both the students and teachers were very involved in on-the-spot karaoke performances. All of the singers were great, and we especially enjoyed watching Ms. McGlynn and Mr. Davis jam to NSYNC. Then, after 7pm, Anne kicked off the Talent show with some Karate. She was followed by some more amazing performances by Vishesh, Connor, Dylan, Dorje, Mr.Larson, Mr. Nielsen, Tapashwi, and Anne. Then, the class of 2019 Seniors performed “We’re all in this together” to close a very special evening.

Countdown to Graduation!

The excitement in Grade 12 Advisory was palpable as the Seniors were measured for their caps and gowns. 64 days to Graduation! After many college acceptances and a fantastic Service Nepal experience, the Senior advisors say: keep up the hard work!

P1/G1 and Senior Collaboration

The year-long collaboration between the Lincoln Seniors and students in P1 & G1 continued last Friday with an afternoon filled with excitement. The P1 students showed off their literacy skills by reading with their grade 12 buddies. After this, the students displayed their acting skills by playing charades with their Senior partners. A lot of fun was had by students young and old!

Students Prepare for Higher Education

From Fall through early Spring, Lincoln has the honor of hosting many colleges and universities from USA, Canada and South East Asia. They come to visit with our students and faculty, either as independent representatives or part of the larger traveling EducationUSA Fair. These interactions are valuable platforms to make those personal connections and also allow for a deeper understanding of who our students are and the programs that these visiting colleges offer.

The University Representatives always have delightful feedback, both of our students and their experience at Lincoln. We also invite host country schools to the college fair so they do not miss out on this valuable opportunity. Last Friday, the Consular section section of the US Embassy also made a US Visa Application Presentation for our non-US families to familiarize them with the US visa application process.
