SIES kindergarten students were given a surprise visit by Abraham Lincoln on President’s Day. Charles Dieckmann, a longtime visitor to IOP, dresses up like President Lincoln and shares a great deal of knowledge about our 16th President. Mrs. Dieckmann dresses up as Mary Todd, Mrs. Lincoln, but her large dress did not make the visit to SC, from their home state of Indiana. The Dieckmanns farm corn, wheat, and beans, while also, attending to cattle.
The SIES students were treated to photos and a special story, as “Mr. Lincoln” was the Mystery Reader for President’s Day 2019.
