More steel should be rising on Lincoln's landscape soon     Send a link to a friend

[MARCH 20, 2004]  Construction managers from the S.M. Wilson company were on hand Wednesday at the board of education meeting with a report on the progress made on Lincoln Elementary School District 27 Junior High.

The deck and foundation are almost complete at this time, and the elevator tower is rising within the building. A retaining wall on the east side of the school is also in progress. Lincoln residents can expect to see steel rising on the site as early as Wednesday, March 24, if weather permits. The crane will arrive at the site on Monday, and steel is expected to be delivered Tuesday.

The board adopted a new mathematics series for kindergarten through fifth-grade students to use next year. The series is published by a well-known textbook company, Houghton Mifflin Company.

In a telephone interview Superintendent Robert Kidd said the only other notable achievement at the meeting was the rehiring of "a whole slew of nontenured teachers," who will be returning to the district schools next school year.
