Event Parking Reminder

Parking can be difficult on days that we host events at the building. If you find yourself parking on one of our neighboring streets, please be sure that all four tires of your vehicle are on the pavement. We would like to be respectful of our neighbors landscaping that surrounds our community.

Safety Update

I would like to remind everyone that children should not arrive to school before 9:00 AM. Those who arrive before 9:00 AM will be asked to stay off school grounds until the 9:00 AM school bell rings. We simply do not have supervision to ensure the safety of children on school grounds. I would like to thank you for adhering to this safety precaution.

Dine-Out at Oberweis

Hot Fudge Sundae, Banana Royal, Chocolate Shake or Malt, Double Scoop Waffle Cone or Bowl; Sound good? End the school year & start summer break with a tasty treat Thursday, May 26th from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Oberweis will donate 10% to Lincoln if we raise $0-$299 in sales OR 20% for $300-$599 in sales OR 30% for $600 or more in sales! Coupon is REQUIRED to track sales & earn the most possible for school. Oberweis is located at 811 E. Butterfield Rd. in Wheaton.

2nd Annual Shoes for Shelters: One More Week!!

Lincoln Elementary School, in conjunction with Just Giants Rescue, will be holding a shoe drive from Monday, April 25 through Friday, May 27. The shoes collected will help people in need in the U.S., as well as in developing countries around the World. Based on the number of shoes collected, a donation will also be made to help local rescue dogs.


Any type of footwear can be donated. Please tie laces together in a bow to keep pairs together. For non-lacing shoes, if possible, please wrap a rubber band around each matching pair. There will be a box in the main entryway hall, near room 1202, for collecting the shoes. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Sternes. kristine.skellysternes@cusd200.org
