Mr. William Sweeney

I have been teaching at Lincoln High School for twelve years, and in the Yonkers Public Schools for a total of eighteen years. I worked as a teacher in the Bronx for two years prior to starting in Yonkers. 

My on-line assignments are on Microsoft Teams, and on this Teacher's website (see Assignments). Also, I am available on Remind. My hours are from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Mondays through Fridays. I will check repeatedly beyond those hours and on the weekends.

This is my sixth consecutive year as the Moderator for The Scroll school newspaper. Each year we publish two issues. The Lincoln High School website has last year's two issues published on the Home Page, and has archived the previous years' issues. So far this year, we published one issue on March 5, 2020. For that issue, we had four new editors and five student writers. I am always interested in accepting students submissions of articles and photographs related to promoting the Lincoln High School community. Join The Scroll school newspaper Club. We meet on Thursdays from 2:40 to 3:15 in room 318. During that time we work on editing student writings and designing the layout of upcoming newspaper issues in Publisher. Students who publish articles have a great advantage to showcase when applying to college.
