On Our Minds January 2018: Letters From Lincoln's Lower School

Maureen Devlin, Head of Lower School, and Suzanne Fogarty, Head of School, share their perspective on all the exciting and innovative initiatives taking place in Nursery–Grade 5.

And while setting aside a particular day provides a rallying point around which to mobilize, when you're a part of an institution that puts girls first, the work is year round.
