Lost library books must be reported lost to Ms. Andrus so a fine can be created. Once the fine is created, it can be paid online. You must enter the student’s name, ID number, and parent’s name in order for the payment to be processed. Click here

Accelerated Reader Program
At Lincoln, students will be engaged in the Accelerated Reader (AR) program
from 1st through 6th grade. This program is designed to assess each student's reading level and reading comprehension. Students take a STAR reading test each quarter to determine their appropriate reading level. After a student finishes reading a book in their AR level, they will take an AR test on campus. The higher score they receive, the more points they will earn. A score that is not passing will earn 0 points.
Readers’ Den Award
A student's AR points are the determining factor in earning the Readers’ Den Award and participating in the End of Year Reading Celebration. Each grade level's yearly AR goal is listed below.
- 1st Grade: All Book Projects Completed
- 2nd Grade: 30 AR points
- 3rd Grade: 45 AR points
- 4th Grade: 60 AR points
- 5th Grade: 75 AR points
- 6th Grade: 90 AR points
*AR quizzes are taken at school during school hours.
At Lincoln, we have two book fairs per year. The proceeds go to support our library. Parents and students are invited to volunteer as a fun and exciting way to get involved!
