Mentor / Mentee Program
Thank you to Mrs. Drake and Mrs. A for guiding, pairing and nurturing our high school mentor program.  This program annually trains approximately 60 high school students to mentor our elementary or middle school students in need of a positive role model for some aspect of support and encouragement.  These students work together for a possible two years, then train a replacement mentor ready to take the reins. Our end of the year pizza party is a culminating activity celebrating the hard work and strengthened relationships among our LCS K-12 community.  Thank you, Mrs. Drake and Mrs. A! Thank you also to all of our high school mentors who believed in us and supported us this year! Photo  

Academics
Every year, Lincoln Charter asks for input from our families in several ways.  

First, we ask that you vote in this year’s School Board election. These parent-elected School Board representatives serve our community in many ways.  You can access this year’s ballot here – School Board Ballot.  Voting closes on 5/17.

We also need your input on our annual parent survey.  Our admin team and staff review these results each year.  This helps us to evaluate our service to our community. Please take the time to complete this survey; your response will help us grow and improve!  You can access the survey here – Parent Survey.

Testing Calendar
Click here for the End of Year Testing Calendar.  Please note that this schedule is specific to the Denver Campus.  AP exams, EOGs, EOCs, and high school class exams are posted with the time and date of each testing session.  As a friendly reminder, EOCs and EOGs are state-mandated exams that students in those respective grades are required to take. Please contact your building administrator if you have questions or concerns.

The School Board has changed the meeting time for the May meeting to the 28th at 6:30 at the Lincolnton Campus.
