New Season of DMD Academy's Mustang TV Starts! Check it Out!

mustang tv season starts

Greetings Fellow Mustangs!

Lincoln's Digital Media Design (DMD) Academy's students have been busy all school year attending school events such as Mustang sports games, VAPA arts performances, and ASB events in order to capture videos and images to preserve a permanent record of this school year for years to come. Their captured images are posted, within a week of the event, to Lincoln's website Homepage and social media pages (Instagram, Facebook, & Twitter) throughout the school year, as well as edited together with raw video footage to create highlight videos to post in the spring semester to the Mustang TV website. These dedicated DMD students have logged 100's of hours capturing footage and editing videos to serve the greater Lincoln Community, and for that we owe them a great debt of gratitude. Some Mustang TV teams have created special video series which they thought would benefit teenagers of similar interest and the Lincoln Community.

Please check out the newly posted videos from today, and for new videos posted over the next few weeks as well. FYI: The premiere of the Mustang TV season was delayed due to..., you guessed it, the pandemic.

Thank you,

The DMD Academy Students

and Mr. Goncalves (DMD Lead Teacher)

Message to Students and Families from Principal Balisi On Distance Learning-April 9, 2020

Dear ALHS Students and Families:

I hope this email finds you and your families well and healthy,  I reach out to all of you especially the students with my warmest wishes for good health and wellness.  The ALHS community is amazingly strong and resilient. Teachers are working hard to provide the best curriculum and moving toward a digital format.  Students have come together and reached out to make plans for school spirit, to honor the Perfect Vision Class of 2020. As we are learning how to “do school” from home, we are aware of the need for flexibility.  Our teachers, students and parents have spoken about the challenges they have faced in the last few weeks; we are in a constant state of assessment to shape the way we can thrive in this “new normal.” Attached you have the ALHS DIstance Learning Schedule.

The ALHS Support Team consisting of counselors, deans, wellness staff, parent liaisons are available to you as we move through our Distance Learning days. Continue to check your counselor’s’ Google Classroom for updated information.  The Administrative Team is also available to assist in any way that we can. Students, if you are having a hard time with the classwork or instruction, please let us know so we can help you get back on track.

As we navigate the new world of digital learning, there are some best practices for parents to support their student’s success. The following suggestions are from a variety of sources and are considered to be best practices:

  • Help your child set regular bedtimes and wake-up times

  • Provide a quiet space to engage during their scheduled class time

  • Ensure child is dressed appropriately during the class time and scheduled meetings

  • Ensure that your child understands that classroom behavior expectations apply in virtual session and they must treat the teacher and their peers with consideration and respect

  • Please remind your child that they should not discuss personal information about themselves or their peers in the interactive classroom environment, to preserve the privacy of all participants

  • Ensure that your child is exercising and getting fresh air, while still practicing social distancing rules.

  • Encourage your teen to reach out to friends and classmates for some social connection.

  • Prepare yourself and your child for online ethical behavior by reviewing the Student Norms for Learning Online, located below, and the Digital Citizenship resources on the SFUSD Continuity of Learning

  • Reach out to the Support Team for assistance

Student Norms for Learning Online

  • Be respectful, responsible, and safe- The rules from your school apply to your online environments as well. Keep your language respectful. Treat your teacher and peers with respect and consideration.

  • Consider your Digital Footprint- Anything recorded or posted online is out there for anyone to find and use, positively or negatively. Make sure what you put out there shows you in a positive light.

  • Don’t share your personal or private information- Keep personal information off the internet that others can use like your full name, birthdate, address and phone number. Never share your username or password.

  • Dress appropriately during class time and any scheduled meetings with ALHS staff

  • Write and read postings carefully to avoid unnecessary confusion- Remember that your peers cannot see your body language or hear your tone of voice, so you need to keep your language direct and respectful.

  • Ask for help if you get lost- If you are having a hard time following what’s being talked about or don't understand a part of the conversation, please let others know so they can help you get back on track.

SFUSD Definition of Distance Learning

Students engage in learning and make academic progress when they are not physically present in schools. This is accomplished using a variety of digital and print resources, and differentiated modes of interaction with teachers (and peers, when possible). How teachers engage students in distance learning is informed by the student’s access to technology and the internet.

SFUSD’s Distance Learning Approach

  • Digital Distance Approach

    • Teachers engage students digitally when we have confirmation that a student has a device/ internet access at home. 

    • With this confirmation, the teacher interacts with the student using digital resources (Google Classroom, Zoom, etc.)

    • Students submit work electronically or as directed by their teachers.

  • Print-Based Distance Approach

    • If a student does not have a device or internet access, the teacher engages that student in print-based learning (text books, work packets, etc.)  

    • Teachers make group or individual calls (typically phone calls) to students to teach and check in on work. 

    • Students submit work at designated check-points or at the end of the closure as directed by their teachers

Synchronous Instruction/Learning

Synchronous learning refers to a learning event in which a group of students are engaging in learning at the same time.

Asynchronous Instruction/Learning

Asynchronous learning occurs when the teacher and the students interact in different places and during different times.

I thank you in advance for your support and for the support you will provide our staff and students.

2020 Yearbook Distribution Info:

A BIG thank you to all that pre-ordered the ALHS 2020 Yearbook!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, our yearbook publishing factory shut down for a month for the safety of its workers, which has delayed the printing of our yearbooks and also SFUSD has completely closed all school campuses through the end of this school year, so yearbook distribution has been postponed and will happen sometime in mid-August 2020. We are so sorry about this!

Keep an eye out for a SFUSD email that will list specific info on what date and how to receive your 2020 Yearbook.

"Lincoln Log" visited by SFUSD Commissoner

The "Lincoln Log" was honored by a visit from the SFUSD Commissioner, Alison Collins, who said she has been "blown away" by the student journalism in the newspaper, and that it "is better journalism than [she's] been reading in our local papers." Ms. Collins spoke to the class about her experience as an educator and advocate for education. She reminded them how powerful journalism is and encouraged students to continue using their voices.
