Parents & Community Overview

Parent-Teacher-Student-Association (PTSA)

Message from the PTSA President

Welcome back! I hope you and your Lincoln student(s) had a fantastic break. Are you ready for the rest of the school year? We sure are – and would love to see more of you.

Seniors – I am thrilled to announce that we are now accepting applications for TEN (10) $500 ALHS PTSA college scholarships! Click this link to download the application: 2013-2014 PTSA Scholarship Application, or download it from the Parent Page of the ALHS website. As always, email us if you have questions. The deadline for submission is April 18th!

The month of May is full of events and opportunities to volunteer, participate and to get to know your fellow Lincoln parents, students, teachers and administrators. So get your calendars out as you read the rest of this note, and email us at if you can help in any way.

Thursday, May 1st will be our Teacher Appreciation Tea. This is our opportunity to thank the teachers for their tireless efforts in our kids’ success and well-being. We serve tea in actual ceramic cups, use real plates, linens and cutlery, and serve up the finest our parent volunteers can create! So many scrumptious goodies – the spread truly is spectacular and is extremely well received by the teachers and administrators. This is a particularly fun event to volunteer for – a great opportunity to chat informally with teachers and bask in their appreciation (even though the tea is for us to appreciate them). From 11:30am – 4:00pm we need help for set up, serving, clean up, and, of course, food items both sweet and savory. If you can commit to the whole day we would love it, and appreciate any time at all – so if you can only spare an hour or so don’t be shy, we’ll take it!

Saturday, May 3rd will be an orientation for next year’s incoming freshmen and their families. We would love your support as we welcome in these new folks to ALHS. Exact time is yet to be determined, but it will start on the early side (9:00 am).

Thursday, May 8th will be the first ever Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) concert, performance, and art show! It promises to be a memorable event and a fantastic opportunity to see what wonderful artists and performers we have at Lincoln. The show will start at 5:00pm. We are looking for volunteers to help with food, and we encourage everyone to attend the show!

Wednesday, May 14th will be our last PTSA General Membership Meeting at 7:00 PM in the library – please come if you can as we wind down one year and set our sights on the next one.

2013/2014 President ALHS PTSA

Letter from the Principal

Dear Lincoln Families:

A very busy spring semester 2014 is upon us. Please make note that the most important date of the year is the graduation ceremony on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 9:00am at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. This has been an outstanding class and I look forward to the many senior activities in the coming months.

Many families received “First Notices of Truancy” during February. Due to a problem with the school district’s software program, no notices were sent during the first semester so this first letter was retroactive from the first day of school. Please review those letters carefully with your child. If you have questions please contact your child’s counselor, the Deans’ Office or an administrator so we may resolve any concerns.

The spring testing season is upon us and there have been drastic changes to the state-wide testing procedures. The junior class however will take both the old California Standards Test with the results reported to the California State University System and the new Smarter Balanced Assessment. Please check the daily bulletin and calendar on for special schedules related to testing. Also questions regarding the new assessment can be answered on the district website, .

Another exciting development is the new Common Core Math sequence recently adopted by the Board of Education that will roll out during the 2015-16 School Year. More detailed information can be found on the district website as well.

Finally, I would implore all Lincoln families to stay connected to the school through School Loop, the school website and the PTSA. Of course, you may contact me as well any time!
