Principals Desk

As we enter our winter break, I want to wish every single Lincoln family a happy, relaxing, and joy-filled two weeks. Please take this time to celebrate your families and build traditions and lifelong memories. My boys are returning from hockey in New Jersey and I look forward to cookie baking, and hopefully some outdoor ice skating, and sledding this break. Happy holidays from my family to yours.

This past week we had many fun-filled celebrations across the school, including spirit week, movie watching at lunch, Grinch day, wrapping the week and final days of 2021 with pajama day, the culmination of our food drive, and classroom celebrations!

Our band and orchestra students did a remarkable job on Wednesday and Thursday showcasing their learning in the first return to in-person performance.

Student Council Updates

Thank you to our student council for organizing a fun spirit week! Also with their leadership, Lincoln was able to conduct a food drive to benefit the Food Depository. We were able to collect enough boxes to fill Mrs. Kappele's jeep and it weighed in as 253 pounds of food! Great job Lincoln! Look out for information in January or February for a schoolwide service project. We will share details regarding this in the new year.


This is just a reminder to label all of your children’s belongings (hoodies, coats, water bottles, lunch boxes, etc). We have already had some items turned into the Lost & Found with no names on them. If these items are labeled, we can bring them back to your student’s class.

What is happening in EMPOWER?

During the end of November and the month of December, students in Empower will be experiencing new modules! The fifth graders will get an introduction to World Languages with our FLEX module, and our K-4 students will address a need in their community with our Make a Difference Module. See some of the photos of the work our students have done!
