TO THE LINCOLN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIBRARY!
of the Reading Lions!
We are excited to announce our students are learning to use Destiny Discover (an online portal app in their Clever account) to place library books on hold! Teachers will be sharing more with students and parents this week about how this is done.
These books can be picked up and returned during our NEW Drive-Up Library on Wednesdays from 2pm-3:30pm in the blacktop parking lot.
Each student can reserve one book at a time. The deadline is Tuesday at 3PM. Books reserved after 3pm on Tuesday will be available the next week.
If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Cameron, our librarian, at [email protected]
, call the library at 327-7289, or contact your child’s teacher.

Accelerated Reader Program
At Lincoln, students will be engaged in the Accelerated Reader (AR) program through 6th grade. This program is designed to assess each student's reading level and reading comprehension. After a student finishes reading a book, 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.
Reader’s Den Award
A student's AR points are the determining factor in earning the Reader's Den Award. Each grade level's yearly AR goal is listed below.
- 1st Grade: 50 books plus 6 projects
- 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 or 4,000 pages verified (or a combination of both)
*AR quizzes may be taken in the
classroom, library, or in the tech lab.
