Lincoln Elementary School
Greetings from Lincoln School!
Lincoln Elementary School is a School-wide Title 1 School with a population of about 410 students k-5. We serve approximately another 150 general and special education students in our regional preschool.
Without a doubt, we have much to be proud of at Lincoln. We are designated a “Status” school in South Dakota, performing within the top 10% of all schools in Reading and Math. This is a rare honor for a School-wide Title 1 School! Lincoln is a child and family-centered facility with a part-time nurse and a full-service counseling program. Approximately 75 staff members work with our children daily.
We take pride at Lincoln school in having Parent University nights during the school year. We have parents who sit on our School Improvement Committee and we have a very active, involved PTA. They are in the process of purchasing new playground equipment for our children as we start the 2014 school year. As well, our PTA is very supportive of our mission and purpose: helping children to grow and excel academically and socially into productive citizens and life-long learners. Our PTA also has provided extensive upgrades to our playground as well.
Affectively, we recognize Lincoln Lights, (those modeling respectful and responsible behaviors). We incorporate mentors, various levels of behavior plans, Student Assistance Team, a Breakfast Club, Buddy Classrooms, monthly classroom Student Recognition Ceremonies, birthday lunches with the principal, peer mentors, conflict managers and the use of the Boy’s Town model for teaching social skills.
During the summer of 2013, our building was remodeled enhancing our building security and creating a new library, gym and multi-purpose room.
Come and visit us! We think you will sense our climate of community and collegiality when you do.
