This past school holiday we had the pleasure of hosting a campus tour for Mary Beth Simons, Class of 1975, having been at Lincoln between 1969 and 1972. Mary Beth took a look at all the recent features of our beautiful campus with her family. It is always a pleasure to see our alumni back on campus!
To all our current students, welcome back to school and we hope you have a fabulous 2018-19 school year!
This year´s recipients of the Iris Lestani Scholarship and the Jim Gill and Claudia Cansler Zaunbrecher Award were awarded at the Lincoln Graduation Ceremony held on June 16th. We were all fortunate enough to have Mr. Gregory Dayton Mohl of Class of 1971, and Ms. Iris Lestani present at the ceremony to award the deserving recipients.
Gregory Dayton Mohl graduated from Lincoln in 1971 and went on to pursue his passion for acting. He gained local notoriety for having played Superman in 1994 for the local comedy special, Cha Cha Cha. He went on to perform in several films including his portrayal of Her Muller in the 1996 film El Hombre que Capturó a Eichmann. Among his credits Gregory is also known for having performed alongside Robert Duvall in the 2002 film, Assasination Tango.

Did you attend the American Grammar and High School in Belgrano? Are you wondering what this campus looks like today? Currently a retirement home, our old High School is still considered a vibrant historical building in Belgrano. If you have any fun facts or stories to share of either campuses, please let us know in the comments!
We have received some interesting news from community members and enjoyed a few visits during the month of March, here at Lincoln Campus.

Terry McGrath Laikko attended Lincoln Elementary and Middle School from 1969 to 1972. She and her husband was surprised with how much our Middle School has grown. It was great having them on Campus!
John Lowell who left in Grade 11, but is a member of the Class of 1976, stopped by today. He was impressed by our Gym and was excited to see our pool which was in construction in the year he left Lincoln.
This month Hugo Otero, long time Lincoln PE teacher will be retiring. Hugo came to Lincoln in May of 1986. Since then he has served Lincoln as Physical Education teachers, Athletic Dept.
