Christ Lincoln Schools Elementary & Child Care
Christ Lincoln Schools has seen incredible growth since its beginning in the church basement in 2003 with 26 students in our Elementary School program and the opening of our Child Care in what is currently the church office space.
We were blessed by the use of the portable building for Elementary School and then, in 2009, moved into our current building which houses Grades K-5 (double classrooms of K-2) and our infant-toddlers in our Child Care program. Due to our sustained growth, the new building was immediately outgrown and the portable remains in use daily throughout the year for full-day Preschool/Pre-K, Half-Day Preschool, Before & After School Care for Elementary age, and our School Age Summer Program.
Build for Central is crucial in allowing for a number of specific matters to be addressed that will affect the growth and prosperity of Christ Lincoln Schools well into the future (see Proposed Plans for details):
The urgency to replace the portable which has needed to outlast its life-expectancy by a number of years and is increasingly costly to maintain, with several major repairs needed in the near future.
Allows all Child Care spaces to be centralized in one building and maintain our current number of students at 160, while growing our ministry simultaneously at our new Christ Lincoln South location.
Doubles the classroom space for our Elementary School which has current enrollment goals of having double classrooms in Grades K-5 by the year 2023.
Playground spaces all located in one area and next to the building for convenience and safety of our students.
Dedicated spaces for art, music, media and services provided to our students by LPS. Our former art room was converted to space for an additional second grade room for the 2018-19 school year and beyond.
Movement of a current first grade classroom space (in the old church library) into the main school space.
Additional space for needed storage.
Centralized administration offices combined with the church staff for greater unity.
Centralized reception area and fewer entrances providing a more secure space for our children and staff.
Commercial kitchen moved closer to the classrooms, freeing up the Fellowship Hall and allowing for greater use of the new Founder’s Pavilion.
