The end is in “site!”

The trees are planted and grass is growing! The project punch list is getting smaller, and we can expect to see the photovoltaic panels being installed on the sloped roofs in the next few weeks. Stay tuned – more about the PV system after the December 14th SBC meeting! The November photo gallery is here and the slide deck from the last meeting is here.

How it started…

How it’s going…

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony/Time Capsule Photos

We have lots of photos from the Ribbon Cutting ceremony! Click here to check out the gallery. And click here to watch the SBC slide show.

On behalf of the School Building Committee, we are so grateful to our faculty, students, administrative team, custodians, technology gurus, and the project team for working so hard to get the building ready for the Ribbon Cutting and tours. Thank you Becky McFall, Buck Creel, Rob Ford, and Brandon Kelly for leading the tours and to the students and faculty throughout the building providing additional information. And a big thank you to the students and families of Cantibile for providing such beautiful music during the tours on Saturday. It was great to see so many people in the school on both Friday and Saturday!

Ribbon Cutting!

Thank you to everyone who came to the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in person or watched it on line. It was great to see so many members of the community and to share this moment with our project team, residents, students, and current and former faculty! Thank you, too, to Rep. Tom Stanley (Lincoln’s current state representative) and Rep. Carmine Gentile (our incoming Precinct 1 state representative) for taking time to attend the event.

Couldn’t see the school today? The school will be open to the public tomorrow morning from 9:00am – 11:00am! No need to RSVP – simply show up and stroll through the building. The time capsules are still set up (see the letter below!) and there will be people on hand to share information.

To see the SBC slide show that was playing during the event, click here.

Stay tuned! There will be many more photos to come in our next blog post!

Letting the Grass Grow

The landscaping team is putting the finishing touches on the center field and the grassy areas around the school. In this image you can see new grass along the south end of the building and one of the many newly planted trees. We thank our students and the community for being patient with this part of the process. Someday the ropes will come down and we can all roam freely! Click on the October photo gallery to see more photos.

Remembering Jim Cunningham

The School Building Committee joins the Lincoln community in mourning the loss of Jim Cunningham. Jim was a dedicated volunteer who spent countless hours filming the community forums, SBC meetings, town meetings, and special town meetings that were focused on the Lincoln School project. We relied on his presence over many years to help communicate this complex process to the Town, and we deeply appreciated the technical knowledge he brought to bear on renovating the systems in the Auditorium. We are saddened by his passing and will always remember him as an integral part of the project and of Lincoln’s civic life.

SBC meets via Zoom on Wednesday, September 14th, at 7:00pm. The agenda and Zoom link are here, and the September photo gallery is here.

Welcome Back to the Lincoln School!!!

Remember how excited we were to see the temporary school being built? We are now just as thrilled to see it being deconstructed! One by one, the modular units are being prepared for transport to their new home at the Nauset Regional High School. It will take a couple of weeks to remove the temporary school, the concrete footings, and the parking lot. After that, reconstruction of the field can begin.

Also, at this week’s meeting, we learned:

  • Installation of playground equipment will begin soon!
  • The racks that support the PV panels on the roof are being installed. Work began on top of the Middle School (Reed) Gym and will progress along the building.
  • Concrete and paving work continues on the Commons courtyard, main entrance, and walkways.
  • Interior finishes are well underway, and final clean-up is starting at the preK/Kindergarten end of the building.

The link to the meeting presentation is here, and more photos have been added to the July gallery.
