BEING GREEN!

Lincoln Cares!

Earth Week
  • Lincoln honors Earth Day every year with an entire week of activities, all assisted by the student Green Team.  By celebrating Mother Earth and learning about ways we can all help live more sustainably, waste less and recycle more, we instill values of caring for our environment.

Conscious Cooks
  • Conscious Cooks is a lunch-time club open to all upper graders and meets once a month.  The mission of the club is to teach Lincoln students to prepare and enjoy healthy, whole plant-based recipes with an environmental lesson tied in to each event.  Students learn that what we choose to eat can make a difference in our world!

The Garden Club
  • Lincoln has a student Garden Club that is open to all 4th, 5th and 6th graders. One day a week, participants enjoy hands-on learning as they grow, nurture and harvest an edible garden. They also assist in maintenance and planting of other specialized gardens on campus.
