Lincoln East's School-wide expectations for staff and students are Respect Self, Respect Others, Respect Learning, Respect Property and Be Safe. When students demonstrate these expectations they are acknowledged with a "You've Been Caught in the Act" card. Students turn their cards into a PBiS bowl located in the Media Center, Athletic Office, Main Office and Counseling Center. A drawing takes place every Thursday during 4th period announcements for various prizes from the school and local businesses. Staff who acknowledge students are also recognized during this time.
