Art in the Halls

Art is in the halls at Lincoln Hall!!  Our 8th grade students created a number of pieces of "street art" based on the works of Bansky, a well-known street artist in London.  There are many examples in the first floor hallway by the art room.  Look for more exciting artwork as the year progresses.

Bus Route Update

school bus

We are pleased to see that bus service overall is improving and more bus drivers are assigned permanent routes. The District administrative team is working closely with the bus company to improve trouble spots.

With the guidance of our retired longtime transportation planner and longtime dedicated parents, we have reconfigured Rutledge and Lincoln morning routes 1, 3, and 5 to more evenly distribute riders. The links below provide the revised routes with updated bus stops and pickup times as well as a map of each route. Please review carefully.

Routes 2 and 4 will stay the same because they have been running smoothly. 


A few reminders:

  • Please wait at the designated stop for the bus before it arrives. Bus routes will run late if students are not ready to board the bus when it arrives. There are some mid-block stops, but no home stops.
  • As we make improvements, we still want to know if there is something that doesn’t make sense and/or about routes that are not running well.

Students Hone Interview Skills for Community Economy

Parents volunteer for mock job interviews

Seventh grade students got a taste of the working world recently when they interviewed for jobs to be part of their class’s “Community Economy.”

Social Studies teacher Mr. Salski developed this yearlong project for students to learn about consumer economics and simulate real-world experiences. Students were coached on how to complete a job application. They each wrote an essay and prepared for a job interview, working on speaking and presentation skills.

On Sept. 10, parent volunteers conducted interviews with all of the seventh graders. Each student dressed up and did their best to win their most desired job.

“I was pretty nervous. A couple questions I had to think about before I answered, but it went great,” said Brandon, who interviewed to be a banker.

“Some of the questions were hard,” said Nicole, who wants to be a doctor.

Students will work two shifts per week either during class time, lunchtime or after school. They will earn income from the community economy through work and good behavior. They’ll make spending decisions about housing and expenses. Their community economy also has a store, opportunities to start small businesses and laws to follow. Students aren’t graded on this project; but the project includes five learning standards that involve speaking, writing and presentation skills. Most of all, it is a great example of teaching financial literacy, resulting in Children Empowered for Life!
