Rose B. Spelling Bee Champion



We couldn't be prouder of our very own Rose Bolduc, who won the Maine State Spelling Bee last night! She spelled for 32 rounds, and won on the word opine. Rose is an avid reader and writer, and she studied countless hours in preparation for this competition. While there will not be a National Spelling Bee this year, we know that Rose will represent
Lincoln Middle School and Maine well in all her endeavors. 
Please read this article from the Portland Press Herald for the full story. Congratulations, Rose!

Lincoln Middle School Drama Club presents...

Theatre Masks.png

Social distancing for Drama Club? No problem - we made a podcast!

Students recorded lines on phones or computers and sent them in. Then, along with some sound effects found on the internet, the lines were turned into 4 short podcasts. You're invited into the world of viking pirate princesses, groundbreaking female doctors, tireless teenage revolutionaries, and emperors, advisors and villagers.

Not all the students were able to participate this way, and we want to take a moment to tell them that their voices are missed, but it's completely understandable that everyone has their own unique situation in these times. we miss them, and all the drama students, very much.

This has been a huge learning experience for all of us, and the upside is that no matter what the fall brings for Drama Club, we have another tool in our pocket to bring theater to the world.


We invite you to take some time to listen to these stories and be transported to a different world for a little while.

Alfhild - Viking Princess
Sybil Ludington
The Story of Jang-geum
The Emperor's New Clothes

Maine Bio Science Day
Sixth grade Applied Science students participated in Maine BioScience Day on Thursday, 11/21. 
Two architects from SMRT Architects and Engineers visited our classroom to present some of their work on local and international STEM lab designs and how they have evolved with emerging technologies. Maine Bioscience Day is a statewide event that aims to get middle school students excited about science related fields. The event focuses on educating Maine’s youth about the opportunities they might have working in a science related field in their future. Professionals in science-related fields volunteer to visit local middle school classrooms to talk with students about their career in science, their daily tasks, and the opportunities that are available in science based careers.
