week was a great sucess!  Thank you to everyone who participated!

It's finally spring and that means it is time to dust off those bikes and get your walking shoes on for a healthy commute to school.


Follow the rules of the road and wear a helmet if you bike.  Remember to lock all bikes up out back of the school.

Members of Lincoln Middle School's student wellness team attended the Maine Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Leadership Day on Saturday, June 2nd at the University of New England Harold Alfond Forum in Biddeford.  The student members attending were Nicole Quang, Isabella Puelo, and Roxie Van Oosterum.  Teacher advisors attending were Denise Preisser and Christel Driscoll.  Student teams shared highlights of wellness events held at their schools and then led the group in a variety of physical activities.   After a fabulous lunch, students met in groups to brainstorm ideas to help make their wellness teams stronger and develop plans on how to get their peers involved more next year.  

Jenni Tilton-Flood attended and spoke on behalf of the Maine dairy farmers fund which helps fund Fuel Up to Play 60 events like this one.  Clare Egan, a member of the US Biathlon Team shared her story via video on success and perseverance to help any student meet their personal goals.  Another special guest, Jacob Hollister #47, from the New England Patriots spoke to the students about leadership and then led a station of throwing and catching footballs to student leaders.
