Marcia DeVore
Principal, Lincoln Elementary School

Welcome to the Lincoln Elementary School website.  I am honored and proud to serve as the principal of Lincoln Elementary School.  Building strong relationships with our Charles City families and community is one of my primary goals.  We must work together to ensure our students have a world-class, well-rounded education

Our school serves students in grades 3 & 4.  We offer a supportive and nurturing environment with wonderful opportunities for all students to meet their full potential as learners.  We are proud to be at the forefront of technology with all of our K-5 classrooms being “technology smart”.  Our 1:1 Chromebook initiative enhances daily classroom instruction and prepares our students for the 21st-century world in which we live. Our students have the advantage of being exposed to the latest innovations in a separate technology class and all of our teachers embrace digital teaching tools as we prepare our students for an increasingly technology-driven society.

Along with our dedicated classroom teachers, the curriculum at Lincoln Elementary is enriched by many other wonderful programs.  Our art, music, and physical education programs are thriving as students begin to explore and develop their talents in these areas. Students and teachers alike are also supported by highly qualified teachers in our library, guidance, and talented & gifted programs.  

In addition, our students are fortunate to be supported by an active PTO.  This dedicated group believes in working together to develop strong partnerships with teachers and administrators so that we all may serve in the best interests of our children.  I encourage every parent to join the PTO and become a more active participant in your child’s education.  Research supports that the number one factor influencing academic success is the level of involvement and support children receive from their parents.  Our teachers are all interested in establishing open lines of communication, so please make it a point to ask questions and maintain consistent communication with your child’s teacher throughout the year.

At Lincoln Elementary School we are excited to see all of our students grow and succeed. Please be assured that I am always available to answer any question you may have.  Feel free to call the office at (641)257-6560 at any time.
