The mission of Lincoln Elementary School is to ensure student learning, guide students to develop self esteem, attain knowledge, and become responsible, caring citizens. We believe this can be done by:
*Providing a safe and caring learning environment.
*Promoting child-centered and active learning projects across the curriculum.
*Utilizing collaboration, collective inquiry and common assessments.
*Respecting the dignity and individuality of each member of our learning community.
*Assigning knowledgeable and dedicated educators to work with elementary students.
*Encouraging students to take increasing responsibility for their own behavior and independent learning.
*Cultivating and maintaining active participation of parents and community in the life of Lincoln School.
*Empowering all children to be productive in a rapidly changing, technologically complex world.
The staff and administration at Lincoln Elementary School believe that students are the center of our school. We believe that this philosophy creates an atmosphere in which the students can learn better and gain the selfconfidence and self-esteem necessary to become life-long learners, who responsibly care for themselves, each other, and our planet.
