About Lincoln Elementary

The goal of the Lincoln program is to provide every student with an educational experience which promotes individual achievement, the feeling of self-worth, and an intrinsic lifelong motivation toward learning. The educational program is designed to address the academic, social, emotional and physical development of all children, thus emphasis is placed on the whole child. Lincoln is proud of its diverse population of learners.  

Lincoln is organized into self-contained classrooms. The curriculum emphasizes a strong foundation in reading, writing, oral communication, literature, math, scientific investigations skills, problem-solving, critical thinking skills and an appreciation of the fine arts.

A number of traditional all school activities are an integral part of the educational program at Lincoln. Each year, a special year-long All School Project, developed around a central theme, is planned to provide enrichment activities for all students. Other traditional activities include visiting authors, a Lincoln Pancake Day Celebration, Student Council events, and buddy classroom activities.

A sense of collegiality is evident through the involvement of students, staff and parents in the Lincoln community. The Lincoln PTO is an active group, supporting the educational program by sponsoring artist in residence programs, visiting authors, book fairs,STEAM Night, ice skating evening, International Night, an Ice Cream Social to begin the school year and a Family Fun Night in the spring. 

Lincoln students attend Southeast Junior High School and then attend City High School. 

Lincoln Elementary was opened in 1926. Lincoln has been remodeled with students returning during the fall of 2019 to updated classrooms and media center, and a new gymnasium built in response to a growing population. Lincoln remains one of the smaller elementary schools in the district. Because of Lincoln's smaller school population, the articulation and continuity of the educational program, the many traditional activities and sense of collegiality among students, staff and parents, ensures new families soon feel a part of the Lincoln Elementary School community.

All School Traditions

Lincoln has many traditions that bind our school community into a family and build a healthy environment. Most of our traditions have been practiced for many years! Traditions make everyone feel like they belong and leave memories that students and staff can cherish forever.

All-School Project

The first all-school project was created in the 1970's and has become a yearly tradition. Each school year, an all-school focus for special projects is determined. Through special activities in classrooms and with older and younger buddies, students extend their learning and participate in activities that are fun. Past all school projects have included a focus on fine arts, Iowa, cultures around the world, entrepreneurship, and helping others. All school projects change every year, but always have the common goal of bringing the whole school together to learn and do unique and interesting activities.

Fun Night

Fun Night is a PTO fundraiser carnival which includes mini-golf, a cakewalk, face painting and numerous other fun activities. It is usually held in April or Mayl on a Saturday night from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. This tradition started a long time ago and is open to all families and also enjoyed by many former Lincoln students.

Outdoor Day

Outdoor Day is a time when the entire school goes outside to play games. Outdoor Day started in 1980 to build a sense of community and to get students involved in cooperative and noncompetitive sports. All the staff and kids participate in Outdoor Day. Outdoor Day is planned in the spring and is led by sixth grade students. 

Pancake Day

Lincoln School honors Abraham Lincoln with a celebration on February 12, his birth date. Students help make pancakes with our own special recipe. We think Abe Lincoln might have enjoyed "Flap Jacks" like ours! The students make the pancakes with the help of parent volunteers, and then add toppings and eat them. They learn interesting facts about our namesake, too!

Memory Book

Each year the PTO generously provides a memory book for each student.  

Students as Leaders
There are many opportunities for student leadership at Lincoln.

Student Council

Upper-level students may serve as student representatives on the Student Council.  The student council focuses on promoting Lincoln pride through a variety of school activities during the school year.

Buddy Classrooms

Students from upper-elementary classes are paired with students from lower-elementary classes and participate in monthly activities including buddy reading, school projects, etc.
