The Lincoln Elementary School Choir has quickly become one of the most highly regarded choirs in Vancouver Public Schools. Under the direction of music teacher Erik Smith, our choir performs at school functions and community events. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade meet once per week throughout the school year. Choir focuses on vocal training, collaboration, listening skills and the joy of making music and performing in front of parents and community members.
Athletics are a fun way for students to learn sportsmanship and get exercise. Fourth- and fifth-grade students are invited to participate in volleyball in the fall, basketball in the winter and track in the spring. After 10 or more practices at the school level, students and coaches participate in what we call a Skill-er-ee, where students from several schools have a friendly competition at one of the school sites. Parents also are invited to attend
Lincoln students always look forward to fifth grade so they can participate in our Safety Patrol program. Working with adults, this group of responsible students helps other students and parents safely cross nearby intersections both before and after school. Safety Patrol is a fabulous way for fifth graders to be involved in our school and begin to develop leadership skills as they approach middle school. Interested students may apply with paraprofessional Joan Hagist.
Want to be impressed? Stop by Lincoln Elementary School between 9:10 and 9:15 to hear our always-entertaining morning announcements. Students shout their support for their classroom-adopted college or university, lead the school in the Pledge of Allegiance, recite the school rules and make other important announcements. We rotate so that all students from all classrooms have a chance to do this.
