This year, every student will receive a yearbook. Throughout the year I will be collecting donations for the yearbooks. If you or your company would like to help make this happen, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the LPS Foudation Fund-A-Need at this link: Mickle Student Yearbooks. You can also send money to school marked for the yearbook.
Another way to help support this cause is to collect “Boxtops for Education” labels. Proceeds from those will also go to the students yearbook purchase. If you have questions please email Teresa Searls at

Student Supports at Lincoln Public Schools

At Mickle Middle School, we want all students to be successful. In order to ensure that students find success, Lincoln Public Schools has developed a framework of best practices for supporting student behavior throughout the school day. This framework includes evidence-based practices that we know lead to more positive outcomes for students. Some of the most powerful practices faculty and staff use include:

  • Developing and teaching all students our school and classroom expectations
  • Acknowledging positive behavior when we see it
  • Consistently practicing strategies that prevent problem behavior before it happens
  • Establishing consistent consequences
  • Using data to make decisions

Here at Mickle, we are working especially hard during these first weeks of school to teach our expectations and acknowledge positive behavior when we see it. In this way, we know we are laying the foundation for a productive and positive school year.
