Lincoln Academy June ’21

*We celebrated Read Across America during the first week of March. The students and teachers participated in a daily contest and tried to identify a quote from a famous children’s book. The teachers and staff surprised the students by dressing up as different characters each day. Everyone is participating in a reading challenge during the month as well!

Lincoln Academy December ’20

November was a very short month for Lincoln Academy!

* We made Monday mornings a little more enjoyable by throwing in some turkey trivia questions for students. Did you know wild turkeys can fly at speeds up to 55 mph? We didn’t either!
* It’s hard to believe that the second quarter of school is already halfway over. Progress reports were sent home to parents before the Thanksgiving break.
* Students have digital homework at least one night a week. The teachers are working diligently to prepare our students for virtual learning. We learned a lot in spring 2020 and it has helped us strategically plan for a successful online learning experience, should we need it. Students and parents have signed a technology user agreement for the school year. They have also been made aware of the remote learning protocols and expectations. Each class has a minimum of two meetings with the teacher each day and work is assigned online. Students must be prompt and show up to the class meetings in dress code!
* We continue to learn about a different executive functioning skill each month. Task initiation was the skill we focused on in our classrooms during the month of November. We discussed how important it is to remove distractions and begin a task right away!
* Our students and teachers have gone above and beyond in following all of our COVID health guidelines. So far, we have not had a single case at Lincoln Academy! Praise God for the blessing of being healthy and able to come to school in person!

Lincoln Academy September ’20

We are happy to have 72 students who returned to Lincoln Academy this year! Our students have acclimated to all of the safety procedures and routines very well. Each morning we screen the students, check their temperatures, and ask them to sanitize hands before we send them to class. Our motto is “Mask Up, Wash Up, Back Up” and we practice this throughout the day. Students and staff wear a mask all day and we social distance when we are in the classroom, as well as when we are outside. Some awesome volunteers made water bottle holders this summer and attached them to every desk. Each child is able to have a water bottle at his/her desk. The teachers have been very creative and made individual school supply containers, as well as activity totes for each child. This helps cut down on personal contact with others. Our volunteers also made acrylic privacy shields for each classroom. Teachers are able to utilize these when they are working with a student. While some of our daily activities may look a little different, the main things have stayed the same. We are enjoying relationships, making sure the children feel seen and heard, pouring in to them and teaching them about God’s unbelievable love for them! Thank you for your prayers and support!

Lincoln Academy August ’20

The day before school started we had a wonderful turn out for our drive up “Meet and Greet” with the parents and students. Everyone was so excited to see each other.

We are beyond thrilled to be able to start the year with face to face instruction! On the first day of school, one of our sweet students said it best. “I’m about to cry ’cause the whole gang’s getting back together!” We have truly missed one another over the last 5 months. Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to gather together and love on our children! Please continue to pray for protection over all of our children, their families and our staff. We have implemented so many new safety guidelines this year to mitigate risk. The students are doing a terrific job following our main three guidelines – Mask Up, Wash Up, Back Up!
We are happy to welcome Ms. Laura Kay Richardson to the Lincoln Academy family! She is our new fifth grade teacher this year.

Camp Lead June ’20

Life and work have been very different since the global pandemic and local social distancing. Our Camp Lead Director’s son has been able to come to work with him on a few occasions. You can see him helping deliver meals to families in need!
