On Wednesday, Lincoln School students and faculty celebrated the placement of the final beam in a “topping off” ceremony. With her permission, we are sharing Principal Sarah Collmer’s letter to parents:
Dear K-4 Community,
Today we had a “Topping Off Ceremony” to commemorate the final beam being placed in Phase 2 of the Lincoln School Building Project! Consigli painted the beam white and all of the K-4 students and staff, as well as the 5th graders (who weren’t at the middle school last year to do the Phase 1 ceremony) added their names so that we will always be a part of the building’s history!
We went outside to watch the crane place the beam in its spot over what will be the new Learning Commons! It was extremely moving to be together as a school – something we have not done since before the pandemic; and what a thrill it was to hear the kids clapping and cheering. Your child will be coming home with a gift bag from Consigli with a few items to help them remember this special day.
Thank you to the School Building Committee, Consigli, and the Town of Lincoln for all of their hard work and commitment to this project. We are looking forward to returning to the new and renovated Lincoln School in the fall!
What a fun way to close out 2021! On behalf of the School Building Committee, we wish you good health, time to regenerate, and all the best as we start 2022.
