Common Core Resources
Looking for information about the Common Core tests your students took last spring? AUSD’s "Common Core Assessments" web page offers a wealth of information on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), also known as the "Common Core Test" or "Smarter, Balanced Test." Please visit the page to find an FAQ about CAASPP, links to layperson-friendly websites about the assessment, and updates on when the results from last spring's test will be released. Families will also be receiving information about understanding the test results in the mail when the individual student reports are sent out in September.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 11 from 9:00-10:00 a.m., for our annual Lincoln Middle School 5th grade student tours of our 6th grade program. Students in attendance will gather in the Lincoln MS amphitheater, hear about our programs, break into small groups led by our student tour guides, and end up in the courtyard in front of the office where they will re-connect with person who brought them to the tour. Student(s) not able to attend the tour, please attend the Lincoln Middle School Open House: The Lincoln staff is excited to announce the Lincoln Middle School Open House on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. This year we are transforming our Open House into a student centered major event, highlighting our programs and all of the various opportunities we provide students at LMS. I encourage all of our community members to stop by classrooms to meet our teachers and hear from our student volunteers. I predict that visitors will see fantastic projects and hear about some of the wonderful learning experiences our students have at Lincoln. Visitors to our Open House will be the first to tour our brand new Visual and Performing Arts Gallery where student work from Music, Shop and Art classes will be on display. Our LMS Cheerleaders and Leadership students will be on campus handing out the program highlights. Visitors can partake in student led discussions and learn about the different clubs we have on campus. Maybe they will see jugglers performing from our Juggling Club or perhaps attend a stretching demonstration led by the Running Club? Hopefully they will hear our wonderful music students perform or get to view some of the student construction projects designed and created by Outdoor Development and Environmental Science classes. Visitors could tour some of the last remaining Art and Shop classrooms in the Bay Area or listen to students speaking French, Mandarin and Spanish from our wonderful World Language program. The opportunities for showcasing everything that we do at Lincoln is endless and I’m excited for the possibilities this night has to offer.
