BASH (Before & After School Help) is back! While school is remote, BASH will be scheduled on Wednesdays from 10:30-11:30am and 2:00-2:45pm. During BASH, students can drop-in to complete homework, join study groups, collaborate with classmates, get help from tutors and staff, or meet with Lincoln’s Academic Intervention Specialist, Ms. Pentecost. Students who would like to attend BASH can join from the Remo link on the Academic Support Center (ASC) Schoology page. Information about joining Remo and troubleshooting is available on the ASC Schoology page as well.
Weekly Planning Guide
To support students with planning and organization we have created two different Remote Learning Weekly Planner options which students can use to map out their academic plans for the week in one place. This tool can be printed or completed electronically, depending on available resources and student preference. It can also be modified to meet individual student needs. Our recommendation is for students to fill this out Sunday evening or Monday morning using the information from their teachers’ Schoology page. This is also a good resource for families to use to help track progress for the week. Following are links to printable versions of the two Remote Learning Weekly Planners:
Weekly Planner Version 1 (PDF)
Weekly Planner Version 2 (PDF)
If you would like a copy of either Weekly Planner in a Word document please email email@example.com.
