APS Lincoln Elementary

Lincoln Elementary in Adrian, Michigan The school is located near Adrian College in the center of an established family neighborhood in the southwest section of the city.

Lincoln prides itself on parent and community enthusiasm and participation. Extensive work with two local colleges, Adrian College and Siena Heights University, provides direct contact with student teachers, interns and tutors who give students a one-on-one partnership that is a very successful environment for learning.

Operating as usual


Our librarian, Miss Ann, recommends anything by Oliver Jeffers or Peter Reynolds. She says these are "beautifully illustrated children's books that will mean a lot to adults, too. Both authors seek to form bonds with children and introduce to them to the world and all it contains. They will pull at your heart strings and help you rejoice in life."


Family Literacy Night (2021-03-10 at 15:04 GMT-8)

Did you miss Literacy Night? You can still watch the video to hear how Lincoln teaches reading, tips to help your readers at home, and stories read by Dori Durbin and a special Mystery Reader.

Our next March is Reading Month book recommendation comes from Mrs. Finch, one of our in-person 4th grade teachers. "Our Service Dogs" is by a very special author--her daughter, Amber Hill!

She says, "This is the second book written by my daughter, Amber. It's about child disability and the service dogs that help. Her daughter was born with cerebral palsy, and is the inspiration behind the book. I like the book because it features real children with real disabilities and real service dogs. Also, I am probably partial because she is my daughter. :) She is coming to visit 4th grade next week to read her book and introduce Riley, her service dog, to us."


Lincoln students Ethan Nichols and Giuliana Alvarado, along with several other K-12 APS students, have art being displayed in downtown Adrian business fronts for the 2021 spring art exhibition. Artwork will be proudly displayed for the next two months!


Do you have a child who's interested in Little League? Registration runs through March 31!


Here's our March newsletter.


We're so excited!

The Recreation Department is finally back up and running after a tough year away from our students. We are ready to launch new programs starting this spring, and there will be more this summer to keep our Maple students busy.

One new change is the shift to on-line registration only. Through financial support from the City of Adrian, we are now able to partner with RecDesk, an interactive sports and recreation software that will allow parents to create students an account, register them with ease, keep track of upcoming activities, as well as review previous programs, upload pertinent medical info, and a wealth of other important features.

This spring, we are launching our Maple Pride Swim Program as well as our Cross Country Run Club, which has partnered with this year's Spring Into Fitness 5K. Registration is now open, and we are excited to be back.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Recreation Director Jeremiah Davies at 517-417-6299 or [email protected]

As part of March is Reading Month, we'll be sharing our staff members' favorite books. Some are childhood favorites and others are what they love as an adult.

Our first selection is from Mrs. Armstrong, one of our 4th grade teachers who is teaching virtually this year. She says of "The Forgotten Door," "I read this book to my students every year and every year they love it. It's about a boy from a different planet who accidentally gets stranded on earth, and It's a great way to launch talk about how we sometimes treat people who are different from ourselves. I loved this book when I was a child, and I still enjoy it to this day. Another famous book by this author is Escape to Witch Mountain."

[03/04/21]   Reminder: Both today and tomorrow are half days with 12:10 pm dismissal.
