Dear Lincoln Prairie Community,

Thank you to our incredibly supportive and creative Lincoln Prairie Parent Teacher Student Association and families for showering our teachers and staff members with gratitude and gifts this Teacher Appreciation Week. Colorful, personalized notes from students to teachers and happy conversations filled with “thank yous” spread through the halls and decorated the walls. Together, we were able to recognize the high levels of collaboration, care, and hard work our teachers invest to bring out the best in our students. We are continuously impressed with their dedication! 

We are in the final planning stages for our BIG EVENT, WITWILP, this Spring. We WONDER “Where In The World Is Lincoln Prairie” going this year? Remote families, please anticipate a letter including additional information about your participation in person for these events! We look forward to creating a memorable experience for all.

Social-Emotional Learning Survey-Parents

District 54 is committed to ensuring not only the academic success of each child, but also their social-emotional wellbeing. Similar to this winter, we are asking for your insight as a parent/guardian in creating the most well rounded picture of your child’s strengths and opportunities for growth. Please complete the survey for your child in grades 3-8 no later than May 14, 2021. Thank you in advance for participating in this survey, as we believe the home-school collaboration is critical to best support your child’s overall well-being. 

Registration for 2021-2022 School Year

You are also able to pay the $50 consumable fee for 2021-2022, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal.
