Lincoln Lions

Pawsitive, Courageous, Fearless Future Leaders


It has been an exciting first few weeks back to school. We are working out many kinks as we navigate this school year. The weather should be cooling down which is exciting for our building. Please remember, flip flops can be dangerous on our playground so we would prefer students wore other foot attire.

We have some exciting news and dates below


Tonight, September 20th is Lincoln's Culvers give back night. A portion of the proceeds from tonight's foods sales will be donated back to Lincoln.

Lincoln Elementary is so happy to announce our therapy dog Lincoln!! She is adorable as ever and has been a great addition. She is just a puppy so she hasn't been out and about to much in the classrooms. We are thankful that the United Way selected us to be recipients of a therapy dog. Many have asked if we have any needs for our Lincoln so we have created a list of items that would be helpful. 2 of our staff members are her full time parents and take on full financial responsibility for her.

Some items we are in need of are

  • Dog playpen - high need at this time- 2 would be nice
  • Dog food - Purina Pro Plan - puppy - only salmon flavor
  • treats
  • chew toys - Kong, Nylabones
  • blankets - only need a couple
  • puppy pads
  • gallon jugs of water
  • poop bags
  • pooper scooper
  • tennis balls
  • brain games for dogs

Items can be dropped off at the front office.
