    I really enjoy the changes brought to Lincoln since last year with the new administrators. Parents are often reminded of activities plays award ceremonies and educational workshops. Teacher morale is high. I am also happy that Lincoln was recognized as a RtI School of Merit. PBIS is also a plus in this school.
