Students who have participated in the Giant Piggy Bank through Fidelity Bank and Trust  in the past or are interested in participating, there is a drop off box in the office to make deposits.  Please see Jeanine.


We are very excited to introduce our newest Comet. Holden James Elliott was born September 9, 2020 to Mrs. Elliott, 3rd grade teacher, and her husband, Ben.  Congratulations! Everyone is doing fine. 


A reminder that library books need to be returned the day BEFORE your student has library class this year to allow time for processing. (i.e. If your child's library class is on day 5, their books should be returned on day 4) Our first week of checkout went fabulous! If you still have books at home that didn't get returned in the spring when school closed, please send them back to school! Thank you all again for your support!


Things are off to a great start in the 4th grade classrooms.  In math we are working on factors and multiples.  Students are being encouraged to practice their multiplication facts at home when they have time.  In reading, we are learning about reading intensely and how important characters are to a story. True stories are what we are working on in writing and each student is writing about an experience that they have had.  Mrs. Ludemann and Mrs. Jurrens’s classes are working on a geography unit and how things have changed over time in social studies while Mrs. Master’s and Mrs. Sande’s classes are learning all about scientists in science class. Please remind students that they need to be reading at least 20 minutes a night at home and asking an adult to sign their reading log each night as it is an assignment that is due every day. Also, all 4 classrooms are in need of some snacks.  They would have to be individually wrapped items that could be passed out. Thanks for all your support! It has been a great year so far!


Did you know that you can still participate in the Box Top for Education Program?  Even though you probably don’t see the clip coupons on packaging much anymore, getting a little extra cash for Lincoln School is still just a click away.  Simply download the Box Top for Education App on your smartphone, Select Lincoln School, Charles City, IA, watch for any products that have the Box Top logo on it and scan your store receipt within a few days of purchase.  It is that easy.  Thank you for supporting Lincoln School.


Third grade students have been hard at work exploring multiplication. We have started making array cards that will be used all year long for games and for learning all our multiplication facts!
