Supply List


 Supply List Printable Version

We have made every effort to make the supply list manageable and realistic. Please contact your child’s counselor for outreach support if you need help getting these supplies.



Supplies to bring from home


  • Pencils mechanical or other
  • Black or blue ballpoint pens
  • Highlighters (variety of colors)
  • 4GB memory stick
  • Kleenex
  • post it notes, 3 x 5 index cards ,dry erase makers, glue sticks, colored pencils and other supplies may be required in individual classes. Your child will hear about these requirements during the first few days of school
  • Spiral notebooks, 3 ring binders, graphing paper - specific requirements for each class will be detailed by teachers in the first few days of school

BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) While certainly not required, many ask if their child should have a laptop for school.   Although not every classroom at Lincoln allows personal computers in class; many do allow and even encourage their use. For parents considering purchasing such a device we recommend a Chromebook based on its size, price, and ease of use.

Message from the Principal

Message from our Principal

Dear Current and Prospective Lincoln Families,

Welcome to Lincoln High School! We’re proud to be one of the top 100 college prep 
International Baccalaureate (IB) high schools in the United States with thriving International Studies and Spanish Immersion programs. Our students are actively involved and think critically about the world in which they live. In addition, Lincoln students regularly participate in highly competitive 6A athletics, a host of club sports and a variety of engaging and meaningful extra-curricular activities and community service projects. Our community is one in which “parents and neighbors are welcome partners.” Above all else, at Lincoln it is “cool to be smart.” We are fortunate to be able to offer a rigorous core academic program, 21st century electives and a full spectrum of fine and performing arts. In addition to Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German, Lincoln is excited to be one of a handful of schools in the nation to offer Arabic to high school students. Finally, Lincoln is consistently rated an “Outstanding” School in Oregon meeting AYP and all other state and federal requirements while producing amazing graduates who go on to pursue a wide variety of opportunities. 

As Principal I am honored to serve the Lincoln community. Please contact me at peytonc@pps.net if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. Come join the Cardinal “Flock" and explore some of our student and alum successes at www.lincolnflock.org.

With Warm Regards,



 follow Mr. Neal
