Note from Mr. Schulte


It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is this week. Each year seems to go faster than the one prior. I encourage you to spend some time in the next few days to slow down and reflect both individually and with family on those things for which you are thankful. In terms of Lincoln Elementary, here is a portion of my list:

I am thankful for...

  • boys and girls who are excited to learn things each and every day.
  • teachers who, each day, teach, counsel and love their students.
  • a school staff who helps make our building a safe and welcoming.
  • parents who love and support their children, offering grace when mistakes are made.
  • for a community that values education and supports us with prayer, volunteering and financial resources.

Please have a blessed Thanksgiving break with family and friends. We will see you back next week.

Rich Schulte

Please know that if money is short and you need help with winter weather gear, please stop by and see Sheri or Mr. Schulte in the office.

Sorry, No Pets at Pick Up

Parents, we love pets here at Lincoln, however we need to ask that you no longer bring your pets when you pick up your child from school. We have had a couple of safety concerns come up due to pets at pick up. Please do not bring your pets to the group of students waiting for pick up after school. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
