-Registration is now open for the Middle School Summer Academy- Parents can now access summer school registration here at the Portland Public Schools website. Parents will be asked to indicate that their child is applying to the MS Summer Academy which will be held at USM in Portland.  The two-week program is FREE and is open to all rising 7th and 8th graders, though we would love to target students who could use additional time and support to meet standards and who would benefit from participating in this summer learning program.  The deadline for registration is May 31.  


                                      Friday, June 1st is LMS Step Up Day

    Students will have the opportunity for an in-depth visit at Lincoln 

Families who are requesting out of neighborhood placement at Lincoln or have a child attending a private school may request that their child shadow a current 6th grade student at Lincoln for a half day.  These visits can be scheduled by completing the Shadow Request Form and returning it to the Student Support Services office or you may call our office at 874-8145.  The window to shadow is Tuesday April 24- Thursday, May 31, and visits are subject to availability.
We are looking forward to working with you and your child.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of our School counselors, Peg Bessey or Debbie Mazjanis.


This year Lincoln Middle School has 8 brave 
teachers/staff members that are ready to "Go Over the Edge" for Rippleffect. Rappel for Rippleffect is a fun way to get the community involved in celebrating and supporting an amazing organization like Rippleffect. We have set a team goal for $8,000. Meeting this goal will allow us each to rappel off of 1 City Center in downtown Portland on May 19th. Please support the team by clicking on the team link below:
