Lincoln Elementary School
Warm greetings from Lincoln School, “Where Everybody is Somebody!”
Lincoln Elementary School is a School-wide Title I School with a student population of around 400 students in K-5. Our Life Skills/Enrich Classroom meets the needs of students who spend a portion of their day in general education as well. Our Preschool serves approximately 150 general education and special education students. For the past three years Lincoln has been designated as a “Distinguished School” based upon our test scores. This is a rare honor for a Schoolwide Title I 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 students daily.
We take pride at Lincoln in having two Parent Universities every year. We have parents who sit on our Attendance Committee and our School Improvement Committee. Our PTA has purchased Sound Field systems for every classroom. With SmartBoards in all classrooms as well, we are utilizing proven technological tools to enhance the learning environment. Our PTA is very visible and supportive of our mission and purpose: helping children to grow and excel academically and socially into productive citizens and life-long learners.
After adopting Math Expressions, an inquiry based math approach, our math scores have jumped significantly. We have met AYP in all areas each year since the passing of the federal legislation No Child Left Behind.
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 use of the Boy’s Town model for teaching social skills.
In 2002 Lincoln School was remodeled to enhance the educational experience of our students. Come and visit us! We think you will sense our feeling of community and collegiality when you do.
