Student Life

Angel Tree Drive

Lincoln Charter, along with the Leadership Institute, is excited to announce that we will partner with the Lincoln County Department of Social Services again this year to sponsor 20 Angels for the holiday season.  The collection period is scheduled for Nov. 13th - Dec. 2nd. Click here for detailed info about each Angel.  


Angel Tree is a program that provides Christmas assistance to children of Lincoln County. The purpose of the program is to provide new clothing and toys for children in need. Angel Tree is a great opportunity for Lincoln Charter students to practice empathy.  Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Each Angel that is being sponsored provides a wish list of items. Donated items must be new and unwrapped. 


LCS Breakfast- K-12- $3

Running late?  Be sure to start your day off right!  New this year, Lincoln Charter School Denver Campus is offering a breakfast option for our LCS families for grades kindergarten through twelfth grade.  The breakfast is a simple continental breakfast that includes three components. The menu varies daily with two items offered from each of the first two components. Your student picks the choice of their liking.  All students are billed on MPP at the end of each week. This is offered daily from 6:30 AM to 7:50 AM in the k-6 multi-purpose room.  


Veterans Day Recap

Lincoln Charter was pleased to host 74 Veterans Monday morning for the annual Veterans Day Breakfast and Program.  Thank you to all of the student groups that supported the day’s efforts. What a blessing to learn from those that have sacrificed for our everyday way of life.  Happy Veterans Day!
