Mark Schmitt, general manager of Happy Joe’s on University, has been a gracious partner with Lincoln School. Each year students and staff participate in the Battle of the Books. Mr. Schmitt donates Little Joe’s pizza certificates for all participants and trophies for the winning student and adult battle teams. Mark has offered to be the MC for a number of years, reading the battle questions during this exciting event!

Happy Joe’s has also donated pizzas for our staff during fall conferences. We are thankful and appreciate his ongoing generous support for our staff and students at Lincoln!

Since Happy Joe’s and Lincoln’s parking lots are adjacent to one another, we offer Happy Joe’s the opportunity to use our parking lot during busy evening times and on weekends.
