It is one of the best ways to stay connected to what is going on at the school, and to keep in touch with Principal Payne.
Join us Wednesday, February 12th in the library at 7:00 pm
The next big event (aside from the general membership meeting!) is the Job and Career Resources Fair. This is a fantastic opportunity for Lincoln students to learn about summer and other part time employment opportunities. This year the PTSA is teaming up with the College and Career Center to make the event even more meaningful to our kids. If you can come help (it is during the work day) it would be greatly appreciated. Thursday, February 13th at 1:45pm – 3:45pm in the ALHS Cafeteria. Contact us at email@example.com to let us know how you can help.
Do plan to come to our meetings if you can. Students are encouraged to attend as well. We will be hearing from the teachers and staff who received Teacher Grants – the funds raised through the tireless efforts of the Raffle Committee and any of YOU who sold/purchased raffle tickets, donated during our annual campaign, and/or became members. Find out how our fundraising efforts are being used to help YOUR student and the greater ALHS community!
See you on the 12th.

Letter from the Principal
Dear Lincoln Families,
Happy New Year and welcome back to the spring semester 2014 and what I'm sure will prove to be another outstanding year for Lincoln High School. There is reason for optimism at the state level as California has committed to significantly increasing spending for public school students over the next few years. Our budget for the 2014-15 school year will be released in February and I will update the school community with our budget outlook at that time.
For our senior students and families, this will be an exciting semester of planning for college and graduation. Our graduation ceremony is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 9:00am at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Families should look for senior dates and activities through the calendar on www.lincolnhigh.net.
For 9th, 10th and 11th grade families, spring is the time of year to plan for the future. Lincoln will continue to offer rigorous elective choices, academies and pathway programs and Advanced Placement classes in every subject. College bound students should plan on exceeding basic graduation requirements in various subjects to enhance their college applications. Keep in mind that through our after school program we not only offer credit recovery, tutoring and homework support, but also have free SAT prep classes for juniors and a community service program through the Stonestown YMCA. Students and families should contact counselors with any questions.
I would like to invite all 9th grade families to a new tradition, 9th Grade Parent Information Night, on Thursday January 23, 2014 at 6:00pm in the auditorium. I will personally review graduation and college entrance requirements, the ALHS course selection sheet, and special courses and programs that will be available for next year. All 9th grade families are invited to attend.
Finally, I would like to remind all Lincoln families to continue with active participation in the PTSA. I am grateful to the PTSA for their fund raising efforts, support of Lincoln teachers, and for constantly keeping me accountable to provide the highest level of service to Lincoln students.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Barnaby O. Payne, Principal
Abraham Lincoln High School, SFUSD
