From the Principal's Desk

This week students in grades 3-5 took the Illinois Assessment for Readiness, this statewide test will be administered this upcoming week and the following week. Students are encouraged to work hard and do their best, this should not be a stressful situation please ensure that they know this and get enough sleep and eat a healthy breakfast. I know they will do well, they have continued to learn and grow this year.

This upcoming Monday is the deadline for inter-district transfers if you are interested please complete the form by Monday, April 19th.

Next week we have some fun activities, first on Thursday--EARTH DAY, we will have an author visit for grades K-2, see the information below. On Friday, it is World Book Day, at Lincoln we plan to celebrate this within the classroom, but also students can celebrate by dressing up as their favorite story character, author, or illustrator. I look forward to seeing all of our favorites. Finally below are opportunities for those interested in band and or orchestra

The final Leopard Contest for this school year will be starting this week and ending on April 23. Can you guess where Leo is at?

For the 2021-22 school year ALL elementary students have been assigned to their attendance area school by the District. This includes elementary students currently attending a school on an intra-district transfer. An Intra-District Transfer Request must be submitted online no sooner than 8:00 a.m. on April 6, 2021 and no later than 4:00 p.m. on April 19, 2021. A link to the request form will be posted on the District 303 web page by 8:00 a.m. on April 6 - Intra-District Transfer Policy and Boundary Map | St. Charles Community Unit School District 303

If you are requesting a transfer for more than one child, a separate request must be submitted for each. Due to fluctuating class sizes at schools and each grade level, siblings are not guaranteed placement. If granted, transportation is the responsibility of the parents.


Parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website. Parents/guardians will use their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials to sign in and select individual students to complete each registration. See flyer for more information.

Virtual Author Visit for our Primary Students

To celebrate Earth Day on Thursday, April 22, Lincoln is excited to welcome Caldecott Medal Winner Michaela Goade and Carole Lindstrom for a virtual event for our Kindergarten through 2nd-grade students. Ms. Goade and Ms. Lindstrom will talk with our K-2 students about their careers and discuss their new book, We Are Water Protectors.

This virtual visit will be from 12 PM to about 1 PM, so our AM kindergarten students are invited to return to school for this special event. If your kindergarten student is interested in attending, please let Mrs. Cranmer know by emailing

Any member of the Lincoln community can order a signed copy of this beautiful book by clicking here. Orders are due by April 29, and books will be delivered to Lincoln after May 3.
