The Lincoln Lightning

"Your SPARK of information!"

September 10th, 2021

Good afternoon Lincoln Families!

I hope this message finds you doing well and settling in as you develop your new school year schedules. Routines and procedures create a sense of security and safety for our children, and over the past two weeks, we have been working diligently to remind students of how they show their SPARK at Lincoln Elementary. For families new to our Lincoln community, SPARK stands for...

S - Scholarly Students

P - Prepared and On Task

A - Act Responsibly

R - Respectful of Others

K - Kind with Words and Actions

This year we will emphasize ways each child can Find their SPARK as Lincoln Ignites Learning! We are committed to supporting each child and family. We will strive to create an inclusive learning community where every student feels they are valued and belong.

Have a wonderful weekend and make sure to mark your calendars for our Back to School BBQ! One more week until this exciting tradition continues!

Be well,

Michelle Miner, Ed.D

Principal, Lincoln Elementary

Big picture

Student Dismissal Form

All teachers will walk students out of the building every day as we dismiss at 3:20pm (2:20pm on Wednesdays). It's important that we are aware of your child's dismissal plan to assure the safety of all our students. Please fill out the following form for each of your children who attend Lincoln School. If there is a change of plans, make sure to let the teacher and our office staff know before 3:00pm (2:00pm on Wednesdays). Teachers do not always have an opportunity to check their emails/voicemails before dismissal, so double-checking with our office is a good way to ensure students know the plan. Thank you!

Free Breakfast and Lunch 2021-22

We will be providing free breakfast and lunch, provided by Sodexo for the 2021-2022 school year. A grab-and-go breakfast will be available for all students from 8:00-8:15am as they enter the building during our soft-landing. Students will eat this breakfast in the classroom as they prepare to start their day.

Lincoln's Fall BBQ

Hi everyone, as the end of the school year approaches, we wanted to let you know about an exciting event that will occur at the beginning of next school year. Yes, the Lincoln BBQ will return! It will be held on Friday, September 17, 2021 from approximately 5 pm to 7 pm on the school grounds. It will be a great time to get reacquainted with each other at the beginning of the school year, and enjoy our new school. The Tosa East marching band has already committed to attending, and of course we will have delicious food prepared by the dads of Lincoln. Thank you to the Lincoln PTO for sponsoring this great event.

If any dads would like to volunteer, please contact me at or 414-477-9132.
