Welcome to Lincoln Elementary School's Website. We are so glad you have taken the time to see what's going on at Lincoln.
At Lincoln Elementary School we believe that "every child can learn and has a right to be successful." We want our students to enjoy coming to school and to feel that they are an important member of our school community. Through the combined efforts of students, staff, parents, and administrators we can make this belief a reality. Working together we can ensure the success of all students, both in school and beyond.
Please take the time to visit all of our classroom sites and links to get a better picture of the "GREAT THINGS" that make Lincoln a great place to learn.

The Adams County Children’s Advocacy Center (ACCAC) is hosting ERIN MERRYN on Thursday, May 11 at the Gettysburg Area Middle School. Erin Merryn is a childhood sexual abuse survivor who is now an author, speaker, child advocate, speaker, wife, mother, activist, and the founder and president of Erin’s Law.“Erin’s Law” requires all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program which teaches:
1. Students in grades pre-K through 12th grade age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult;
2. School personnel all about child sexual abuse; and
3. Parents and guardians the warning signs of child sexual abuse, plus needed assistance, referral or resource information to support sexually abused children and their families.
To date, 28 states including Pennsylvania have passed Erin’s Law.
On May 11, Erin will conduct a 1-hour presentation followed by a book signing. The event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend this event. Donations to support the ACCAC will be accepted following Erin’s presentation.
The ACCAC is looking for your support of this very special event. It is through the courageous efforts of individuals like Erin Merryn who share their story and their message that child abuse victims can heal and move forward in their lives and children will all have the opportunity to participate in child abuse prevention initiatives because child abuse prevention is the key to ending child abuse.
We encourage all school district staff to join us in this event which will provide support of the ACCAC’s mission to end child abuse.

The Gettysburg Area School District has agreed to partner with 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.
