A New Website for the New School Year.

Welcome to the brand new Lincoln Lutheran school website. We talked to parents and students. We talked to faculty, our own and others. We researched current trends in school websites both secondary and post secondary. We listened to what you liked and disliked about the former site. You can see the results today.

Any website is about communication, and we wanted to be able to use our website to better communicate with everyone associated with the Lincoln Lutheran community: students, parents, association churches, alumni and supporters. Our old website served as a good starting point, and we learned a lot from it: what to do and what not to do.

The new website is the result of the hard work of many individuals. Our faculty, administrators, coaches and staff spent many hours going over each page and updating the information (there are over 160 pages on the new website).  Our website design class did a wonderful job exploring what was good and bad about the former website. The journalism class took hundreds of photos that you see throughout the website. Our parents, students, faculty and supporters answered surveys and participated in card sorts to determine the best way to present this information to you. The new website was truely a team effort.

Where is the _________ page now?

It might be a little hard at first to find the information that you're after on the new site, but we're confident that everything is in a logical place, and that you'll be able to get to everything you need in just a click or two.

There's a new menu at the top of the page, and you can get to every page of the site from one of those six choices. Chances are pretty good that your first choice will be the correct one, so just click around. You never know what new information you'll find.

Most common requests:

  • PowerSchool: link at the bottom of each page (soon to be at the top of the page)
  • Moodle: link at the bottom of each page (soon to be at the top of the page)
  • News: icon below search on each page (or "read more" links)
  • Calendar: icon below search on each page (or "full calendar" links)


We do know that there are some pages that still need content, and there are some features that we are planning to add in the near future. There are also some typos. We've asked Mrs. Kuhn to proofread everything for us, but she hasn't had a chance to yet. We're still a work in progress, but we were so excited about the new site that we wanted to share it with you as soon as it was feasable to do so.
