Principal Denitzio’s Message

Dear Lincoln Families,

I hope this message finds you well and that you took advantage of our summer-like weather this weekend.

We’ve got a busy week ahead with four grades holding Open Houses. Wednesday morning is Picture Day and the School Picnic is that evening.

Below is the schedule of Open Houses for this week. Specific information about these events comes from grade-level teams, but the dates are below for your reference.

Kindergarten Thursday 9/28 at 8 a.m.
Grade 1 Monday 9/25 at 8 a.m.
Grade 2 Tuesday 9/26 at 8 a.m.
Grade 3 Friday 9/29 at 8 a.m.

Regarding Picture Day, every student must turn in a picture form even if not purchasing photos. Please turn forms into your student’s homeroom teacher.

This year Hayward Photography is offering Online Pre-Ordering as an option. If you choose to order this way simply go to: www.haywardphotography.com and click on “Pre Pay for Photo Day” then enter in the code : “LIN17” and follow the instructions from there. Please check off the Online Pre-Pay box on your child’s order form and send it in to school with your child. This is a new convenient and easy process this year, but you can still order by sending the form in with a check as well. There are extra picture forms in the office. If you have questions contact Julie Lacy: jlacy277@gmail.com

Also a note about a meeting for Brookline High School Expansion project. The building committee of this project will meet this Friday Sept. 29 at 8 a.m. in the School Committee Room.

Have a great week.

Writing & Organizational Coach for grades 8-12

Having recently relocated to Brookline, I’m introducing my well-seasoned writing and organizational services to this community. I work one-on-one with students on essays, research writing, and creative writing. I also help those struggling with homework organization and task management.

I’m passionately devoted to a diverse range of students—some challenged by mild or moderate disabilities, some struggling with writing assignments and deadlines, and some seeking the stimulation of special writing projects. I collaborate with teachers, counselors, and parents to foster a supportive community around each student.

Prior to our move, I worked mainly in the Lexington area, serving students attending Lexington High School, BB&N, Belmont Hill School, Belmont High School, and Dana Hall School. My holistic approach has helped many students triumph over difficult work and all that it brings in its wake.

A special note for 8th grade families:

Many middle school students struggle with the academic and emotional transition to high school. During this vulnerable time, I support students’ self-esteem while developing their writing and organizational skills for larger challenges ahead.

I’m available for both school year and summer sessions.

For more information, see my website: BuchbinderWriting.com or call (617) 735-7277.
