Lincoln Families Rise to the Famous Art “Quarantine” Challenge!!

Despite closing classrooms due to the COVID-19 pandemic, families are still finding ways to feel artistically inspired from the comfort of their homes.  Last month, Lincoln Art teacher, Ms. Babik sent out a “challenge” to families who were self-isolating at home to recreate their favorite pieces of artwork using everyday household items.

Lincoln families proved more than willing to accept the challenge and responded to the call with personalized remakes of  famous Art pieces by the likes of Edvard Munch, Rembrandt van Rijn, Leonardo DaVinci and more. The stay-at-home artists pulled from their stashes of household supplies, enlisted the help of their pets, stuffed animals and children’s toys  to remake the perfect portrayal of a famous work of Art of their choice.

And… although school is out for the summer… We challenge YOU
to take a break from the everyday and get inspired!

We will continue this challenge through summer and into the fall, so there is still time to participate!!  Search for Famous Art, re-create the Artwork from supplies found around the house, and submit BOTH photos to Ms. Babik at

Lincoln’s End of the Year Parade

Many teachers of the Lincoln staff came out to participate in the Lincoln’s year end parade.  The teachers wanted to send a message to the students that we miss them.  Twenty five cars were led by a district Fire truck with Fire Captain Chuck Eggleston leading our parade.  Many students and families were on the route that was created by Officer Currington.  Trish Dicesare, our school guidance counselor, was instrumental in planning and comunicating all of the information to the staff essentially making this event possible.   The teachers expressed how special it was to see all of their students waving and cheering as they drove by.  Thank you Lincoln students… you are AWESOME!
