The Middle School Program

 Lincoln Lutheran has implemented several special programs at the middle school level.

Breaks

Students can expect to have a daily break. Snacks can be allowed during break at the discretion of the Lincoln Lutheran faculty. Snacks, when allowed, should be nutritious and follow the guidelines of the Lincoln Lutheran School Nutrition Policy.

Students are expected to adhere to all Lincoln Lutheran behavior guidelines during break time.
Specific behavior guidelines related to break time include:
• Students are expected to be in a supervised area and use the assigned restrooms.
• Students are expected to have permission before leaving a supervised area.
• Inappropriate behavior and misuse of equipment will not be tolerated.

Failure to follow these guidelines will result in the loss of break privileges.

Access

All middle school students have a class called Access every non-chapel school day, normally Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Access is a Life Skills course to help students adapt to changes that commonly occur in middle school, and gives them a spiritual framework within which to manage these changes. Topics such as goal setting, communication skills, problem solving, digital citizenship, and leadership are included in Access.

Exploratory Classes

Students will have the opportunity to supplement their core curriculum with shorter-term exploratory classes. Exploratory classes may include Use of Computers, Family and Consumer Science, Art, Business and Careers, Physical Education, and Health. Exploratory classes are six weeks long and meet each semester.
