Lincoln School Closing

“No more pencils, no more books…” A Wednesday night tribute to Lincoln Elementary school in Lamar became a final reunion of sorts. Former students from years or decades ago arrived singly or as couples to catch up with others from when they were students there. In a cost-cutting move, the RE-2 school board recently made a difficult decision and concluded this would be Lincoln’s final year of operation. Lincoln students next year will be taught at Parkview for fifth graders, and sixth grade students will attend the Lamar Middle School.

Friends and former classmates gathered in the library Wednesday evening for a slice of cake, a chance to look through a compilation of school pictures contained in albums and reminisce with old friends about the years they shared.
