Welcome to Lincoln Junior High School and another amazing school year! The staff of Lincoln Junior High is eager to welcome your student(s) to a new and exciting school year. We are looking forward to collaborating with you and our students as we live our mission in supporting students to be self-directed learners, collaborative workers, complex thinkers, quality producers, and community contributors.
Clear communication with all of our stakeholders is vital. Talk 203 e-mails will be sent out to all families on a regular basis. When you enrolled your student(s) in District 203, you were signed up to receive these communications. We strongly encourage you to visit both the District 203 and Lincoln Junior High School websites frequently.
Our Home and School President, Mrs. Jeanne O’Connell, will be working very hard to ensure that we are partnering with all of our Lancer families to support each and every one of our students. We have monthly Home and School meetings that we welcome you to attend to learn more about what is taking place at LJHS.
We are truly looking forward to partnering with you as parents this school year as we continue moving forward to implement the District’s vision and mission to promote lifelong learning for all of our Lincoln Lancers.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at any time.

FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
Effective communication and community relations.
Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting. To watch that presentation, please click here.
