AboutAbout the Schools

THE HISTORY OF LINCOLN SCHOOL:

(from the 1977 Bicentennial)

By 1964 both Jefferson and Grundy Schools were overcrowded.  A referendum was passed in April of 1964, and the decision was made to build a new school.  This school was to be located at

100 South Nebraska Avenue

It was built on an eleven-acre site and was named the Lincoln School.  It was first occupied on September 1, 1965, with Wayne Sutter as Principal.  The teachers for the first year were:

  • Kindergarten, Glenna Ferrell
  • First Grade, Doris Morton
  • Second Grade, Madeline Strunk
  • Third Grade, Frances Naron
  • Fourth Grade, Millie Holder
  • Fifth Grade (2 sections), Gail Delfs and Ann McConkey
  • Sixth Grade (2 sections), Fern Downs and Joyce Strunk for 1/2 day with the principal teaching the other half day
  • Music, Mary Swanstrom
  • Physical Education, Lillian Dallinger
  • Speech Therapy, Linda Jenkins

The enrollment for the first year was 288 pupils.

On January 25, 1966 another referendum was passed and 14 classrooms, a set of restrooms, and additional equipment were added to the Lincoln School.  This addition was first occupied in September of 1967, and by this time the school had an enrollment of 575 students, plus full time physical education and music teachers and an E.M.H. teacher.

In 1968 Mr. Sutter, the Principal of Lincoln School, was hired as Assistant Superintendent of District #644.  Jolyon Webb, who had been a sixth grade teacher at Jefferson School, now became Principal.

HOW LINCOLN SCHOOL WAS NAMED:

A letter is framed and hung inside the Lincoln School office that signifies how Lincoln School was named.

                                                                      

January 15, 1965

                       

                        I believe that a fitting name for the new

                        School would be Lincoln Grade School in honor

                        of our 16th President because:  HE IS KNOWN

                        FOR HIS INTEGRITY, HONESTY, LOVE OF BOOKS AND

                        KNOWLEDGE, A CHAMPION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND

                        FREEDOM - A CHALLENGE TO PRESENT GENERATIONS!

 

                                                                        Sincerely,

                                                                        Mrs. George D. Crumrine, Jr

                                                                        100 N. Maple St.

                                                                        Morton, IL  61550
