Lincoln Elementary is the BEST school my children have EVER attended! Because we have had to move so much (due to work, etc.), my children have had the opportunity to go to quite a few great schools in S.D., including Lincoln and Jefferson here in Watertown. EVERYONE at Lincoln is so kind, caring, nurturing, and they all meet you and your children with huge smiles EVERY morning! Lincoln is GREAT about doing activities outside of school that the whole family can go to (movie night, pirate family fun night, Indian Culture night, etc...)! These things are done to get the families together so that they can get to know each other, and also the parents and children get to know the staff outside of school. The arts/music programs can NOT be beat! If your child needs extra help, the teachers are MORE than happy to spend extra time with that child. Dr. Patrick is also the best principal I could ever imagine a school having! She is very easy to talk to, sincerely concerned about every child in her district, knows ALL the children by name as she goes through the halls, and instead of the children being "scared" of her as a principal, they look at her more as a teacher/friend that cares!
