Message from the Principal

Dear Parents and Students,


Welcome to a new school year. I am honored to return to the Lincoln family as your principal. I look forward to continuing our work together for our students. I am extremely excited to see our Lincoln family growing with the addition of the students from Draper.  

Educating children is a group effort. I feel that it is important for schools and parents to work along side one another in order to provide the most consistent and successful school experience. I am a firm believer that all students can learn, just not in the same way or the same day.  

Let's work together this year in preparing our students in becoming college and career ready.

Again, I am looking forward to working with you all during this school year.  


Karen R. Cook, Principal
