From the Principal


November 12, 2014


Dear Lincoln High School Families:

Now that the first marking period has ended, and you have had the opportunity to review your child's academic progress, I would like to remind you of several academic interventions that we offer at Lincoln High School.

  1. Encourage your child to take advantage of their teacher's contractual extra help day from 2:30 p.m. - 3:15 p.m. (See enclosed schedule).
  2. Our Targeted Instruction program is scheduled to start on January 6, 2015.
  3.  If you have concerns with an individual class, please e-mail the teacher and copy me or the grade level administrator.
  4. If you have not already done so, please schedule an appointment with your child's counselor.

Mayor Mike Spano Names Lincoln School of the Month

Link to story.
Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano recognized Lincoln High School as the City’s School of the Month for June 2014. Specifically recognizing the school’s EcoPark, an outdoor garden and growing area in the school’s courtyard, Mayor Spano joined Superintendent Dr. Michael Yazurlo, Principal Ian Sherman and Lincoln HS students and teachers to pay tribute to the school.

EcoPark is part of the Horticulture Special Education program at Lincoln HS and began four years ago when the school’s former courtyard was transformed into a large garden. As an ongoing hands-on learning center, EcoPark is maintained daily by more than one dozen Special Education students. The school’s science students use the park to study ‘green’ sources of energy, growing, bio-mass, recycling, and sustainability. Read the article and view photo on the City of Yonkers Webisite.
