WELCOME TO THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR!
"AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH IN 2020-2021, L-H!
This year, we will need each other like never before. We will need to lean on each other, cheer for each other, support each other, understand each other and celebrate each other like never before - and yes - the “little victories count.” When all is said and done - this will be a moment in time for all of us and your children. So, let’s make the moment count to the best of our ability - in a way that sets a lifelong example for them.
In the end. when we return to the school format we “used to know” - our experiences now and how we interacted with each other will be important because the dust will have settled.
Let’s take care of each other, L-H.

Overview of The Arts at Lincoln-Hubbard -
We are extremely proud of the development and success of our Musical Theatre program at Lincoln Hubbard School. Our partnership with local organizations such as SPARC ( Summit Performing Arts Resource Committee) has enabled our students to shine on stage and behind the scenes over the years in productions including: The Lion King, The Wizard of Oz, Aladdin, Suessical, Annie.
Additionally, our students in grades 4 and 5 experience a 10 day residency when the circus comes to town as L-H welcomes "Circus Around the World" with Mr. Kevin O'Keefe every other year.

On the final day - they perform in an actual circus!
