Eighteen students, two world language teachers, and one Head of School inaugurated Lincoln’s first Morocco Global Program over Spring Break. After a global program pause due to the pandemic, Morocco was selected as one of our new program partnerships, explicitly linking our Arabic Program in the Upper School with our ongoing partnership with World Leadership School.

After students got settled, they had an orientation, lunch, and then got to work! Each junior participated in one of three courses — “Anatomy and Physiology of Aquatic Organisms”, “CRISPR/CAS9 Genome Editing of Aquatic and Marine Organisms”, or “Exploring Hidden Biodiversity with DNA Sequencing.”
This week, Grade 10 students at Lincoln spent three days in an on-campus retreat with facilitators from Bard College’s Institute for Writing and Thinking. Through lots (and lots!) of reading, writing, and conversation, the group explored the subject of attention.
Languages at Lincoln School are so much more than one could learn from an app or a book.
Our program starts at a very young age (2) and runs through 3 years of required language at the Upper School level.
Two essential questions of the sixth grade year are: where do stories come from, and why do we tell stories? Throughout the year, sixth-graders explore how stories function on the page, but they also consider the importance of stories within their lives. They come to realize that stories not only follow specific patterns, but can also help explain the unexplainable.
The Lincoln community was treated to an outstanding show of The Addams Family this weekend. In the world of The Addams Family, “misery is wonderful, torture is enjoyed, and death and suffering are the epitome of excitement.” Inspired by Charles Addams’ classic cartoons and written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, the musical features the original story of grownup Wednesday Addams, who has fallen in love with a sweet young man from a respectable family.
As many of you know there was a devastating earthquake majorly impacting Turkey and Syria a couple of weeks ago. Survivors are in need of hygiene products, and the local organization AHOPE (Americans Helping Others Prosper) is sending donations over. Things like lotion, diapers, deodorant, wipes, pain killer medicine, and no rinse body wash and shampoo are examples of what to bring in. It would be very greatly appreciated if you could bring stuff in, and there will be boxes out near the front desk and in front of the dining room on Tuesday until the last day before break.

Last week, the Ginkgo class and Lower School students came back to school with their grownups for a magical evening of collaborative activities involving light and shadows. Kids were greeted by faculty with glow stick bracelets and a menu of activities including shadow puppets, light tables, making constellation covers for their flashlights, decorating lanterns, and a dance party! It was great to see friends of all ages enjoying the lights, pizza, and activities side by side. To close out the night, everyone gathered outside in the courtyard to be serenaded by the Grade 4 and 5 students in attendance.
At this weekend's Boston Model UN conference, the Lincoln team researched, presented, and negotiated complex issues while practicing diplomacy.

In recognition of National Girls & Women in Sports Day, we welcomed Coach Angel Agu to campus. At an assembly for Middle and Upper School students, Reign W. ‘27 introduced Coach Agu, who is the head coach of women’s volleyball at the University of Rhode Island. Coach Agu spoke about her experiences as a student athlete and a coach, and more broadly about setting goals and finding purpose.
This project was one of the most unique and captivating I have done at Lincoln. It encouraged us to think about science with an eye toward its beauty rather than its difficulty, while promoting an increased conceptual understanding and many kinds of problem-solving. During the project’s introduction, Ms. Taylor and JD explained that it was particularly important for our class to practice thinking in 3D because, biologically, female brains have greater difficulty with this kind of visualization. Understanding this made this project feel not only exciting, but also empowering.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Little School, Lower School, and Middle School attended a cultural performance—a traditional Chinese Lion Dance. This dance, which features drumming and movement, is a symbol of luck and prosperity for the year to come. After enjoying the dance, students learned more about how the lion is made and how it moves. Thank you to the Chang family for organizing this special event for the Lincoln community!
We designed this experiment to learn about structural engineering. Each group built a structure with different degrees of bracing and support, allowing us to test how each performs and compare them. The buildings have to withstand an earthquake—the EQ breaking point. A control box with an LED display reports the cycles per second from zero to 30, which mimics an earthquake’s P waves.

It is built on the Orthopedics in Action curriculum, designed by the Perry Initiative.
During their study of the Women’s Rights Movement in Social Studies, Grade 5 students learned about key individuals and events in the women’s suffrage movement. To introduce the unit, students read picture books that highlight the achievements of various suffragists including Amelia Bloomer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Esther Morris, and more. They also read a biography of Susan B. Anthony to learn about biographies as a genre.
