On Wednesday, Sept. 4, Lincoln Academy in Newcastle will host its annual open house for families of LA students. This year, the event will take place earlier in the school year and start with class meetings for parents in each grade level. All LA parents are encouraged to attend.
Because many are new to the school, ninth-grade families will meet at 6 p.m. and have an extra half-hour for parent orientation. Tenth-, 11th-, and 12th-grade parents will meet at 6:30 p.m.
Families will meet in the following locations based on grade level: ninth grade, Nelson Bailey gymnasium; 10th grade, Alumni Dining Commons; 11th grade, Applied Technology and Engineering Center, room 409; 12th grade, LA library (upstairs from the front office).
At these meetings, administrators and faculty will talk to parents about what to expect in each year of high school, for example, when juniors take the PSAT, and how seniors order caps and gowns.
After the grade-level meetings, families will receive a mini “bell schedule” to follow from class to class. Each period will meet for 10 minutes, allowing parents and guardians to meet each of their students’ teachers and learn a little about each class, as well as walking from class to class just like their students do in a typical day. During students’ free periods, families are invited to stop by the main office to meet new LA Head of School Jeff Burroughs and other members of the administration.
No RSVP is necessary. Questions about Lincoln Academy’s open house should be directed to Kelley Duffy, director of curriculum and instruction, at email@example.com or 563-3596 ext. 250.
