Welcome from the mighty, mighty Lynx!

Welcome to the official website of the Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association of Lincoln High School in Seattle, Washington. Even though the school closed in 1981, the alumni association is alive and active! The LLAA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and annually awards scholarships to a number of outstanding high school students who are lineal descendants of Lincoln graduates and staff. Please visit the Scholarship tab to see this year's recipients. The Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association has roots going back to 1910. Membership in the LLAA is open to any person who attended Lincoln as a student, staff, or faculty member. It promotes and preserves the history of the school and has events and programs to strengthen the bonds between its members and the community. The Totem II newspaper, published three times a year, strives to reconnect and encourages contact of members. To submit an article or news, click on "Contact Us". We hope you will join the association today and receive a complimentary recent issue of Totem II and the "We are back!" refrigerator magnet. We know you will enjoy being a member of the Lincoln family!!

Lincoln High School Plans to Reopen 2019

Lincoln High School Plans to Reopen 2019

How do you like our latest promotional poster? The Board voted for this design at the recent meeting. You'll be seeing it around Wallingford in the near future! Monica Fosmire Weber '73 and Paul Aoki '68 attended meetings as representatives of Lincoln Alumni on the School Design Advisory Team. Former Lincoln teacher Lee Bassett ('71-'81)was also on the team as a representative of the Wallingford Community. Over a three month period, we examined learning styles and best practices in education, as well multiple examples of possible building and environmental designs, to determine the optimal educational environment that can be created within Lincoln's brick exteriors and outdoor spaces. Flexibility and sustainability were major considerations. Current planning has scrapped the previous plan to level the current auditorium in favor of a smaller venue with more theater support space, so our 1200 seat auditorium remains!! The blacktop will remain parking space (I miss the tennis courts and practice walls). The outdoor spaces between the main building and the big gym and auditorium building will be designed for outdoor eating and learning (not a smoking area!) and "sunny" places to enjoy the outdoors (You know, on those two days during the school year...). You can also check out the plans on the school district website HERE . You will also find notes from past meetings with the community and a depiction of the proposed accessible entry as well as virtual design tours of the new Library and the new Commons. In related news, the City of Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board recently appproved the designation of certain areas of Lincoln High School as protected landmarks. These include the original building's exterior, the central staircases within it, and the drinking fountain on the main floor. In a previous writing here, the elevated track in the gym HAD been landmarked, but this too was somehow reversed, so out goes the historic, one of a kind, elevated track. Boo! Paul Aoki, Lee Bassett and I recently attended a community meeting in the Lincoln Library where community members voiced their concerns about programs, boundaries, and enrollment. In the midst of the bantering, a woman I did not recognize rose and pointed out to everyone that the students will be very fortunate to have a very strong and active alumni association who will give them history and traditions to make them feel part of a well-loved school and supportive community.
