Lincoln Elementary

Hello and welcome to Lincoln Elementary!
Mission:  To sustain and enhance a caring community to produce enthusiasm for lifelong learning.

My name is Greg Adams and it is a privilege to serve as principal at Lincoln Elementary.  The Osage CSD is progressive and provides excellent opportunities for children of all ages.  Osage is a county seat town of Mitchell County providing many activities and emergency services.  Active economic development, low unemployment, low SES, plans for upgrades, and low staff turnover, combine to provide a stable enrollment and financial stability, further resulting in high academic/activity standards and results.

Lincoln Elementary serves 400 of our district's 1,000 students.  Lincoln Elementary has (3) sections per grade level with an average of 65 students, serving children in grades preschool through 4th grade.

Programming includes:

My educational background and experience includes graduating from Riceville High School, earning my bachelor's degree in Agriculture Education at Iowa State University, teaching (agriculture and science), coaching at Waukon, earning my master's degree at Winona State University in Educational Leadership, serving as principal for grades 3-12 for the Riceville CSD, and serving as grades 2-6 principal/special education director for the Howard-Winneshiek CSD.  I began as a PS-4 principal in Osage in 2014.
