Destination Imagination is a world-wide program which focuses on creativity and problem solving.Teams of 5-7 students work together to solve a challenge. There are five challenges provided by the program officials each year. After choosing one of the challenges the team meets weekly to find a solution to the challenge. They create a skit in which to share their solution. Teams take their solutions to a regional tournament. This is a competitive meet and teams are judged on how well they solve the challenge. The regional tournament is an excellent time to meet teams from other schools, to celebrate creativity, and to have fun.
This program relies on parent volunteers to serve as team managers. It is often difficult to find parents who have 2-5 hours per week to give to this program. Training is provided by the NH Destination Imagination program on a Saturday in the fall. If you are interested in serving as a DI team manager, please contact Jan Smith at 775-8860.
Volunteers play a vital role in the Lincoln Street School community. We are fortunate to have parent volunteers, community members who come to help us, and volunteers from within the building - both staff members and students. We hope that this model of giving and sharing will make our students better citizens.
Lincoln Street School has a very active Volunteer Program. Lots of our parents and other community members volunteer their time in schools in a variety of roles; reading to classes, assisting with academics, helping in the cafeteria or library, teaching Math Problem Solvers, providing math fact practice, or volunteering in the Music Programs and Art Programs.

We have an active Student Council directed by Mr. Schmitt, which is instrumental in leading us with school spirit activities. A student from every homeroom represents our population, and together they help plan such activities as theme days, pep rallies, community service projects, daily announcements pertaining to character and citizenship, recycling, and school yard clean ups.
