Message From The Principal

  • Principal Matthew McFarland

    Welcome to Lincoln Elementary School's Website!

    I am very excited to be your principal and greatly look forward to the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.  At Lincoln Elementary School we strive to provide you and your family with an education in a safe, nurturing, student-centered environment.  It is our goal here at Lincoln Elementary School to instill in our students a life-long commitment to learning.  I believe with the resources, technology, curriculum, and dedicated staff here at Lincoln Elementary School we can accomplish this goal.  We want our students to walk out of our doors each day better prepared to face life’s challenges than when they walked in.  I feel honored and privileged to be the principal at Lincoln Elementary School and look forward to working with you and your family this year.

  • Backpack Program Partners with Community Aid: sustainability

    Ruth's Harvest The Gettysburg Area School District has agreed to partner with Partners in Adams County Support CommunityAid, a non-profit organization with a mission to help those most vulnerable in our local communities.

    All proceeds earned from the bins on our campuses will be earmarked for the Ruth's Harvest and Franklin Friends weekend meals programs in the District.  The District will receive a monthly donation, based on the amount of clothing items collected in the bins.  Additionally, our needy students will be eligible to receive clothing care cards to shop at their Hanover or Mechanicsburg stores.

    This is an easy way for your used (and clean) clothes to be converted to cash and support our students. Last year we had 230 students in Ruth's Harvest and 51 students in Franklin Friends programs.

    Please consider making a clothing donation!  (If you have more donations than will fit in the bin - we can make special arrangements with the CommunityAid organization so the District receives the financial credit.
