Welcome from the Principal
My name is Mike Frampus and I am thrilled and honored to be the principal at Lincoln Elementary! Lincoln is truly a special place and I am sincerely looking forward to the school year. During this difficult and unique time, it is my goal to maintain the family atmosphere that has defined Lincoln elementary for decades, but also to keep our students and staff safe and healthy. I also feel it is important to improve student learning and continue to create a culture that reflects character and respect throughout the Lincoln family.
Please let me tell you a little about myself. I have worked for the Petoskey Schools for over 25 years. My responsibilities have varied during this time as I have previously worked as a coach, librarian, teacher, and an assistant principal. Prior to that I taught history and coached track in Farmington, Michigan. My wife, Tami, and I have been married for 27 years and we have two sons, Andy and Aaron. Andy is a graduate student at Grand Valley State, and Aaron recently graduated from PHS and is entering his first year at Michigan State. Both of my sons attended Lincoln and they still reflect fondly back at their elementary years as a special time in their lives. I feel fortunate to be an active part of the fun and learning opportunities at Lincoln. I believe that a quality education is essential to improving the lives of all people and I have committed my life to this cause.
