I want to express my appreciation to Lincoln staff, Lincoln parents, and the Lincoln PTO for their combined efforts to make our parent/teacher conferences a worthwhile experience. Conferences are offered once a year, but open communication between home and school is encouraged throughout the year. Please feel free to contact your child's teachers via email at any time during the school year. The success and well-being of our students is a common goal shared by both home and school. Have a great weekend.

Attention students interested in joining the wrestling team! Please make sure to have a current physical on file with the school nurse prior to the first practice on December 1 from 3:30-5:00pm in the cafeteria. There will be a parent meeting on November 30 at 6:00pm in the LRC. Wrestling will be in full COVID compliance. Wrestling sign-ups can be found at this link.


The following guidelines are in place so that families can attend athletics events at Lincoln:

  • All spectators are to be masked for the duration of their time in the building.
  • Only family members of players/performers will be admitted as spectators.
  • There is no "student section."
  • Siblings of athletes must sit with their parents.
  • Due to limited capacity in our stands, we want to prioritize our limited space for families of athletes.
  • This policy is consistent with all schools in the MSMSAC athletic conference.

Adherence to these guidelines is mandatory so that Lincoln can participate in and host athletic events as a member of the Mid-Suburban Middle School Athletic Conference during the Covid-19 pandemic. Thank you for your cooperation.

Multicultural Matrix . . . New Club at Lincoln !

Do you speak another language other than English? Were you born in another country? Have you visited other countries or perhaps been interested in visiting other countries? Whether you answered yes or no, it doesn’t matter! You are invited to join the Multicultural Matrix at Lincoln Middle School. We will be learning about different countries--their customs, traditions, and foods--and we will also be making crafts and connecting with each other. We are more alike than we are different, but we will be celebrating our differences in various ways. Please join us on two Wednesdays of every month for a fun and meaningful time together. Do you have ideas or suggestions for our Multicultural Matrix? If so, join us at our first meeting on Wednesday, November 3. We look forward to seeing you!

Please send a copy of your child's Covid vaccination card to the health office after your child receives dose #2 of the Covid vaccine. This information is important to have on file as students who are fully vaccinated (2 weeks post 2nd dose) do not need to quarantine if identified as a close contact (per IDPH guidelines).

Conference Snack Donation Thank you

Thank you! Many thanks to those who generously donated toward grab-and-go snacks for recent parent-teacher conferences. With this funding, the PTO was able to provide snacks and beverages for Lincoln teachers and staff all three evenings of conferences.

Each evening, staff had the option of healthy snacks (trail mix and nuts), sweet treats (cookies and candy), salty snacks (chips and pretzels) and mints. Varying flavors of K-cups and carbonated water were also provided. Thank you for making these long days a little nicer for our teachers and staff.

The District 57 Education Foundation is a non-profit organization comprised of Mount Prospect community members whose mission is to raise money to fund grants in the areas of curriculum, wellness, and technology. Grant requests may be written and submitted by district teachers, staff, students, and parents. The grants enrich the educational experiences of all students, helping them to achieve at their highest potential. Funded grants allow teachers to have access to the resources they need to support teaching and learning at Westbrook, Lions Park, Fairview, and Lincoln schools.

Over the years, the Foundation has funded computers, iPads, ELMO projectors, Smartboards, musical instruments, art supplies, fitness equipment, and supplemental reading material - all to enrich our children’s educational experiences. We are currently in a new Grant Request Cycle. A description of the grant request submission process and form is located within the Grants section of our website at

Grant requests are due by 12/17/2021 to the Ed Foundation at

Parent community members who are interested in submitting a grant request should contact the school principal to which the grant will benefit. The Ed Foundation will review all requests at our February meeting. Please contact the Ed Foundation Grant team at with any questions. Thank you for your continuous support of the D57 Education Foundation.
