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.

Science Day is coming up on April 17. This is a huge event that our students look forward to every year! Please let us know if you are willing to volunteer or help with donations.

Ms. Thompson's March is Reading Month suggestion is Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. Ellen Rosen, a Jewish girl in Denmark, is taken in by her best friend's family and concealed as one of them to protect her during World War II.

This novel is a Newbery Medal winner, an award given each year to the most distinguished contribution in American children's literature.

Update on Abraham Lincoln from Mr. Skeels:

Greetings! Within the last couple of years, fundraising efforts have taken place to restore the Abraham Lincoln statue currently in the lobby of Lincoln. For those who attended Adrian, you may remember this statue in the district, at different buildings, during different eras. Though we are significantly short on reaching the needed amount of money, we do plan to continue our efforts to make this restoration a reality. We are seeking an individual or small group of people to take over the lead in these fundraising efforts. The staff and administration are not able to make this project a priority when considering the mission and goals of the district and school. If you are interested in this, please contact Sam Skeels, Lincoln principal, at 517-265-8544 or [email protected].
