Lincoln School Happenings

FULL STEAM AHEAD AT LINCOLN MIDDLE SCHOOL

 

 

The eighth grade STEAM club members have been busy transforming Lincoln Middle School’s central courtyard. The students recently designed and constructed a cold frame, used to protect plants from the harmful early spring frost. This new addition to the garden was made possible by a grant from Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal (MSUNER).
The idea of building the cold frame originated within the Social Studies department, to have students grow vegetables typically found on a New England colonial farm in order to develop an appreciation of the hardships faced by early American settlers.
With the collaboration of LMS teachers and students, the project has developed into an interdisciplinary learning experience, infusing science, technology, engineering, math, and fun. After harvesting, students will calculate nutritional values and design a farm that would meet the nutritional needs of their families.


CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs. Huff's first period Honors English class (Lincoln Middle School) on winning the "Read to Succeed" contest sponsored by Achieve3000.  From Monday, November 2, through Friday, December 4, every time a student in the class completed a multiple choice activity, the class earned one point. For every score of 75%, the class earned two points. And for every score of 88% or higher, the class earned three points! Mrs. Huff's class scored the most points on average at Lincoln Middle School, and won a $30.00 gift card, which will be used for a lunchtime celebration!


Congratulations! Lincoln Middle School which has been chosen as a recipient of the 2015 BASF Science Education Grant of $5,000.  Special thanks to Ms. McMasters, Mrs. McCarthy, and Mrs. Hester-Fearon for their efforts in the application process.  Their work in fostering students' interest in the sciences is commended.

Lincoln Middle School Rain Garden Classroom Project Completed 


 

The Rain Garden project that was completed at Lincoln Middle School resulted from a partnership between Rutgers University and Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission. The project included the following a rainwater garden, a rainwater harvesting system, tree and vegetable plantings, raised garden beds and gardening areas to enhance science education curriculum, and the creation of an outdoor classroom by installing benches for 24 students.
During the construction process, the initial plans were modified to also include over 700 feet of boardwalk style decking around the raised garden beds to make them handicapped accessible, a teacher podium for the outdoor classroom, and a large greenhouse was purchased.
The time needed to complete the project exceeded 750 man hours.
Lincoln Middle School is grateful for the gift that has been given to our school and community.

Lincoln Middle School worked diligently creating Valentine cards for dosomething.org.
In one week, the students handed in 1,168 cards which are donated to Chrill Care in Verona, N.J. The cards will be delivered along with daily meals in their  "Meals on Wheels" program, which feeds about 400 seniors.
For every card that was created the children received a free raffle ticket to win Ted E. 



In the picture, please find Nicole Leon, our seventh grade student who won Ted E.  She, herself, created 64 Valentines in an effort to "share the love" and give Ted E. a new home!

I'm so proud of our LMS students for their loving efforts.
