Principal's Corner

What's going on at Barge-Lincoln Elementary?

January Updates at Barge-Lincoln Elementary!

The first semester (90 days long) is quickly coming to an end! This Tuesday, January 24, is our last day of the first semester. To keep you informed, your learner's teacher will send home the report card on Friday, February 3, 2023. Please be sure to check your child's backpack on February 3 to see the first semester benchmark grades. And, of course, if you have any questions, please reach out before or after school. The teachers would love to answer your questions and/or provide more in depth feedback.

You, as the family of our precious learners, are a team with our staff! Thank you for working with our school community to ensure we provide a learning environment that is positive, safe, and fun-loving. Our learners have a bright future and a supportive school that will ensure we are reaching and teaching every student, every day!

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your child's teacher first and if you need to continue the conversation, we can include the principal(s). Having a conversation with your child's teacher is the first and most important step, as they work with your learner for the majority of the day.


As a friendly reminder, when we have a delayed start to school, the school doors open at 10:15am, with breakfast served from the opening until 10:40am. Lunch will occur at the same time. If students arrive before 10:15am, there is no supervision and families will be called to come and pick up your student.

PARENTS---Don't forget! Your student(s) need to come to school dressed for the cold and wintery weather. Winter jackets, gloves, and hats are encouraged from now until the weather begins to warm up in March. If you need assistance getting a winter jacket for yourself or your students, please let our office know. We are happy to ensure your family is warm! We are a blessed school community and have received multiple donations of winter clothing. Please ask us and we can help you!

Barge-Lincoln reinforces our three standards for learning and we'd love your assistance with reinforcing these at home, as well:

  1. Show Respect
  2. Make Good Decisions
  3. Solve problems
