This week, District 7 3rd -8th grade students and high school students enrolled in select courses will participate in the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career) assessments.
The PARCC assessment is one test with two parts. Students took the first part, known as the performance-based assessment (PBA) in March. The PBA measured critical thinking, reasoning and application skills through “extended tasks” such as written answers or multi-step math problems.
The end-of-year assessment (EOY), being administered this week, consists of short answer questions and questions that measure skills like reading comprehension, vocabulary and math proficiency.
The Illinois State Board of Education has informed us that we can anticipate test results after Thanksgiving. We will share those results with you as they become available.
A Better Place to Play
As a continuation of our partnership with the City of Edwardsville Parks and Recreation Department, District 7 is pleased to share information on an exciting new city initiative – “A Better Place to Play.”
The campaign, “A Better Place to Play,” will fund three projects in Edwardsville: a Spray & Play Park - which feature a splash pad and dry playground, fitness track, shade structures and pavilions, an Ice Rink/Teen Center which features a 43,000 sq. ft. indoor facility for hockey, figure skating, and recreational skate use, and a multi-use Sports Park which meets the growing need for field space for athletes of all ages.
We believe that this campaign is a great initiative that not only improves recreational facilities, but also provides additional opportunities for all District 7 students and community residents. “A Better Place to Play” is the future of our Edwardsville community! [More Info]
On behalf of the staff, I want to welcome you to our Lincoln Middle School web site. It is our goal to ensure that all students have opportunities for social, emotional, and physical growth, as well as intellectual development.
Our theme for the 2014-15 school year which was developed by our Prevention Program, is The Path To Success Starts Here. We at Lincoln truly believe that when we work together as a community that we all be successful.
We have high expectations for our students and will work hard to create an environment where they can excel. These expectations include those related to academic performance and student behavior. This is where we can use your help. I invite you to get involved in what is going on within our school and to communicate any concerns or ideas.
In addition to our daily announcements and information about after school activities, bus routes, and athletics, we have included our student and parent handbooks on our site. These documents contain policies and procedures, as well as information about opportunities for our students to participate in a variety of programs. We urge parents to read this information thoroughly and to discuss it with your children.
If you have any questions, I may be reached by phone at 618.656.0485 or by email at email@example.com.

Student Pick-up/Drop-off Procedures
Posted: April 12, 2010
Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us at Lincoln Middle School. Please review the following procedures for dropping off or picking up your children at Lincoln Middle School.
When dropping off students, please utilize the drop-off lanes in either the upper parking lot between Lincoln and Woodland or the circle drive off of West Street. While it is also permissible to pick up at either spot in the afternoon, there is very little parking available in the circle drive. You may find it more convenient to pick up your child in the upper parking lot. From 7:30-8:20 a.m. and 2:30-3:15 p.m., during student delivery and pick up times, the gym parking lot is closed to vehicular traffic. Students are exiting and boarding buses, and for safety reasons, we ask that you not try to enter or park in this lot at those times.
If you have any questions I may be reached by phone at 618.656.0485 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
