They did a mock common council, saw how 911 calls work, and met the head of the health department. The mayor was really great with the kids and took a picture with each child for a souvenir. The students learned a lot of this trip and had a wonderful time!

At Lincoln School, 6th grade students from Mrs. Stark and Mr. Casper's class recently worked on architecture project.
The project is called Bridge Building. The students formed teams that consisted of an architect, an accountant, and a project director. These teams were then required to build a bridge that was aesthetically pleasing as well as strong. The students were given a budget of over a million dollars to "purchase" the supplies needed to build the bridges. These supplies included little wood sticks and wood glue.
The bridge breaking ceremony was held on Tuesday, June 10th at Lincoln School. The bridge that held the most weight was declared the strongest bridge. There were other awards given this day as well.
Mayor McCue and City Engineer Craig Faucett came to critique the bridges and gave advice on how they could improve their bridges. The students really enjoyed meeting them and listening to their suggestions.
The teacher who started their education became the same teacher who presented them with a scholarship during their final days of high school.
On Senior Recognition Night, kindergarten teacher Mrs. Lipske presented the 2007/2008 Lincoln Parent Teacher Association scholarships to three students: Colleen Woyach, Jonnine Verburgt, and Peter Bossow. All three students attended Lincoln School.
