Information for Seniors
Lincoln Graduation June 2024
The 2024 graduation date is Friday, June 14, 2024 at 8:00PM in Memorial Stadium, 401 5th Avenue North. All students will be issued 6 tickets for the event with an opportunity to request additional tickets near the graduation date.
Senior Class Meetings
These meetings are generally held in the auditorium during school hours and ALL seniors who are able are highly encouraged to attend as very important information is presented. If a senior is not able to attend, the meetings are always posted on the counseling Schoology page.
- Sept 15 – senior year reminders
- Oct 20 – meeting with graduation vendor
- Feb 16 – final semester timeline info
- April 19 – initial graduation information from counselors
- May 17 – graduation ceremony information and end of year info (may be moved to May 31 depending on AP test schedule)
Cap and Gown
Cap and gown orders are now open and are ordered directly from the graduation vendor, National Achiever, using the site Lincoln-lynx.com or the following link. If you have questions about any of the items on that page, please call National Achiever directly at 425-357-1338. No payment for graduation items is made to Lincoln; it is all handled by National Achiever.
Each graduate is responsible for purchasing the cap and gown package titled “Lincoln High School Cap and Gown Unit,” or if you or someone you know has a black cap and gown that will fit you, you will only need to purchase the tassel and stole for the class of 2024 (titled “2024 LHS Class Stole Only + Tassel only”). To see these items, scroll down towards the bottom of the page linked above.
Beyond the basic cap and gown package, all purchases are optional. Purchases need to be made by December 15, 2023 to qualify for the bulk rate – after that, prices will increase (for all items, including cap and gown packages). Swag items will be shipped to the school before winter break for distribution, but caps and gowns will be distributed at school in late April.
If you need financial assistance for the cap and gown purchase, please reach out to your counselor as soon as possible.

All current Seniors (Class of 2024) were mailed a copy of their current transcript (final transcript of 22-23) over the summer with the final report card for the year. Before requesting another copy please make sure that copy is not in your home! Students can request an “unofficial copy” of their transcript to use for applying to colleges by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an email reply back within 48 hours with a PDF copy attached so be sure to check your school email regularly after requesting a copy.
Paper copies of your transcript can be requested through email@example.com as well. As a general rule, paper copies are only necessary for international schools. You can request up to 5 paper copies for free. If more copies are needed see Mr. Lee to pay for additional copies. Once the official copies have been signed and sealed into envelopes you will be notified to pick them up to address and mail yourself. Lincoln does not provide postage for mailing paper copies of transcripts.
Recommendation Letters for College Applications
Information was presented at the end of the 22-23 school year and was gone over again at the senior class meeting on September 15. Seniors need to only request letters if their university requires them, and if so, must request them in writing to their staff member at least 3 weeks in advance of the due date.
Parents and families: Please help us support the college application process by encouraging your student to reach out to their desired recommenders in a kind and professional manner to receive the form. Counselors presented the process to request a letter of recommendation from teachers and staff to 12th grade students on September 15, 2023. The whole staff is following the same process and students are welcome to ask any teacher or counselor if they have any questions about that. The steps of the process can also be found on the counselor’s Schoology page in the slides from the September presentation. We appreciate your partnership.
