November 2019

Greetings Greyhound Nation,

As we enter the month of November, we find ourselves one third of the way into the second nine weeks. Lots of great and exciting things are happening at Lincoln Park Academy that we want to share and make you aware of.

Our Fall season performances took place during the month of October. Students showcased their musical talents during the middle and high school band concerts and orchestra concert. The Drama Department’s production of “James and the Giant Peach” was a huge hit, especially with the primary grade schools. Over 700 elementary students from throughout the district were in attendance during the last show. If you did not attend either of these, you surely missed out on great performances.

With fall sports moving into post-season, we are proud to report girls’ golf team member, Angelica Holman is advancing to state competition. Congratulations Angelica! The girls bowling team won the Treasure Lakes Conference, placed 2nd at districts and advanced to the state tournament, with one member of the boys’ team, Mason Day qualifying for state competition as well. In girls’ cross country, seven members advanced to the regional meet. In Swim and Dive, our boys placed 2nd at district tournament, 28 members advanced to regional competition and three of our boys qualified for state competition. They are: Jonathan Geraghty, Spencer Wagner and Jake Sciscente. Finally, our girls volleyball team finished the season as district runner-ups. Way to go Greyhounds!!!

Report cards were sent home on Monday, October 28th with all students. As a reminder, school will also be closed on Monday, November 11th in observance of Veteran’s Day. Please be sure to pay close attention to this month’s calendar, as there are other events taking place this month.

Thank you once again for your support as we move into the winter months and one step closer toward our meeting our goal of ensuring all students make learning gains and achieve academic success!
