Scholarships December ’20

December 31 is the deadline to help provide a scholarship for FREE for a Lincoln Academy student. 98% of our students receive a scholarship from Scholarships for Kids through the Alabama Accountability Act which allows taxpayers to redirect up to half of their state income tax liability towards scholarships for qualified students. Please take advantage of this EASY opportunity that is ZERO cost to you!

Little Linc December ’20

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests. Luke 2:14
We give glory to God this Christmas season as we remember the reason we have a hope to share with our students and their families at Little Linc Preschool. Jesus Christ became Immanuel, “God with us.” What a joy to share the truth of Advent with our little ones!

Lincoln Academy December ’20

November was a very short month for Lincoln Academy!

* We made Monday mornings a little more enjoyable by throwing in some turkey trivia questions for students. Did you know wild turkeys can fly at speeds up to 55 mph? We didn’t either!
* It’s hard to believe that the second quarter of school is already halfway over. Progress reports were sent home to parents before the Thanksgiving break.
* Students have digital homework at least one night a week. The teachers are working diligently to prepare our students for virtual learning. We learned a lot in spring 2020 and it has helped us strategically plan for a successful online learning experience, should we need it. Students and parents have signed a technology user agreement for the school year. They have also been made aware of the remote learning protocols and expectations. Each class has a minimum of two meetings with the teacher each day and work is assigned online. Students must be prompt and show up to the class meetings in dress code!
* We continue to learn about a different executive functioning skill each month. Task initiation was the skill we focused on in our classrooms during the month of November. We discussed how important it is to remove distractions and begin a task right away!
* Our students and teachers have gone above and beyond in following all of our COVID health guidelines. So far, we have not had a single case at Lincoln Academy! Praise God for the blessing of being healthy and able to come to school in person!
