Fall Fundraiser now in progress
Sept 07 – Sept 22
Please encourage your child to sell at least one item. Proceeds help pay for the yearbook this year.


Yearbooks

Fund-A-Need

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 tgross@lps.org

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.

Sincerely,
Gene Thompson – Principal


Having students arrive to school in the safest possible manner is our goal at the start of each school day. Flexibility is needed to meet this goal, especially in winter weather when students are all bundled up on slippery surfaces. It is very important that drop-off traffic follow the traffic pattern. The plan also ensures that students are exiting vehicles on the sidewalk side of school. Even one car going the wrong way can halt traffic for everyone.
Even though the traffic pattern might not be the fastest (see included map), it is significantly safer for the children to have traffic drop offs spread out around campus. The necessity of going one way on the side streets around Mickle is to maintain traffic flow around parked cars or during poor winter weather.


Parents may request and the District will provide information regarding the professional qualifications of their student’s teachers and paraprofessionals.
