Lincoln Avenue

  • “Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait; the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.” HENRY FORD


    Once Lincoln Avenue’s most “well-mannered” class processed into the auditorium for their 2015 Moving-Up Ceremony, Principal Dr. Michele LeBlanc welcomed them, their families, and the District Administrators in attendance. BOE President John Verdone (a former Lincoln parent) made an appearance and shared a few words, Principal Tom Murray offered assurances about Middle School, and Dr. LeBlanc acknowledged the “graduating” Lincoln parents for their six years of support. She also thanked the special PTA, SEPTA, and Site-BasedTeam volunteers for their countless hours of service. 

    During her address, Dr. LeBlanc cited Henry Ford’s quote on enthusiasm [see above] to best describe the amazing class. “It is hard to miss the enthusiasm within this group: the sparkle, the swing, the will, and the energy. You will see it this morning.” Dr. LeBlanc also noted how the spirit of cooperation within this class (another of Ford’s favorite subjects), has enabled these Fifth graders to work together “within and outside the classroom. This is a group that is highly willing to serve others, and they thoroughly enjoyed that role.” Dr. LeBlanc attributed the successes this class has seen to “their energy and will combined with their ability to work together. There is a maturity within the group that for me adds sparkle and swing to the ceremony and I feel this class is prepared…” In thinking about this very special group of talented children, Dr. LeBlanc concluded with another quote from Mr. Ford; “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. You would make Henry Ford so proud as you have me. Congratulations, students. Congratulations, parents.”

    Representing each Fifth-grade class, three students (Eva Kosak, William Kretz, Madison Galaris) read their insightful essays about their years at Lincoln, and all the students performed two songs: the traditional For Just a Little While, and this year’s hit that was cleverly and appropriately paraphrased All About the Lockers (lyrics rewritten by Sayville Music teachers Christine Cirillo and Kristi Woerner to the music of All About the Bass) regarding lockers at the Middle School.
