Dear Lincoln Prairie Community,

The final countdown is on. We are pleased to say the end of the year is ending almost as “normal” as a typical school year. Our Big Event plans, student excitement and end of year traditions are in full effect! Thank you for encouraging full participation from your children next week. We want them to be part of knowing that these times are important to their well-being and socialization. Ending this year on a high note will help bridge students to starting next year off successfully!

Where in the World is Lincoln Prairie?

WITWILP (Where In The World Is Lincoln Prairie) is coming soon! We are looking forward to celebrating our annual Big Event with our students on May 25-27! This three day simulation experience will “take” our students on an adventure through different experiences that relate to our theme of Wonder. Remote students who are remaining home should please plan to pick up materials needed for WITWILP at Lincoln Prairie on Monday, May 24th anytime between 8:30-4:30 p.m. A separate link will be sent to you Monday to ensure your child can participate in the experience. 

Lincoln Prairie Class of 2021 

We enjoyed celebrating our 8th graders today as we practiced for their upcoming ceremony, surprised them with a celebration parade and shared a commemorative video with them. Our 8th graders will graduate this Sunday, May 23 at Hoffman Estates High School. We are looking forward to our school choir and band’s performance at the event as well! We will be sending out a link of the Graduation Recording next week for those that would like to celebrate their accomplishments.

The following is the updated list for open chair positions:
