Farm to School Program  

Lincoln Elementary plans to implement a Farm to School Program in the fall of 2013.  The program will involve a partnering with local grocers and farms for seasonal produce to be offered to students during their snack periods.  Starting the third week in September each Thursday one grade level will be served a fruit or vegetable during their snack time.  One or two volunteer parents per classroom along with available student council members will prepare and deliver the snack to the classrooms.  The fall snack program will run for 14 weeks as will the spring snack program for a total of 28 weeks. 


Parents with a connection to a local grower, experience with Farm to School, or an interest in volunteering with the Farm to School Program are urged to contact:

Upcoming Events  

Lincoln School Garden  

First installed in May of 2013 with the assistance of Lincoln School neighbors, the three raised bed gardens are a living classroom, where students can engage in the science and biology of food, to see firsthand, the process from start to finish. The wide variety of vegetables planted included tomato's, cucumbers, Swiss chard, zucchini, onions, carrots, and beans.  The success of the gardens is noteworthy, and its expansion has allowed all grades to learn how food grows.

Parents/Guardians Please Note -
The district is "going green" and in order to save paper and help the environment, we ask that you visit the following link to view current fliers that will give your child(ren) opportunities to participate in a number of activities.

Dismissal Form  

Student safety is our foremost concern on a daily basis.  Throughout the district all elementary schools are sending home dismissal forms for parents to designate their child’s dismissal plan.  It should be noted that this plan will be followed daily unless we have receive a phone call or note from the parent to indicate a change in the plan.  Please review this plan with your child so that they have a clear understanding of your family plan.  A copy of this form will be sent home with every student. If you need another copy or have a change please download and print the form below.
