“We build strong foundations leading to unlimited success through high expectations, high time on task, a strong academic focus, strong instructional leadership, and accountability.”
Lincoln Elementary School is currently the newest school in the district, serving the North Casper neighborhood, as well as importing students from throughout Casper. Lincoln continues to be “The Home of the Hardest Working Students in Casper.” The mission of the school is to build strong foundations that lead to unlimited success in students. Our continuous school improvement efforts are addressed through our leadership team and four goal teams – reading, writing, math, and behavior – always seeking out effective, research-based instructional techniques and best practices. Lincoln strives to deliver a rigorous and relevant comprehensive program to meet a diverse spectrum of needs and interests while modeling and building healthy relationships.
Teachers at Lincoln Elementary School develop standards-based units and lessons that follow the NCSD ELA curriculum. Classroom teachers continue to deliver a combination of grade-level, whole-class lessons and differentiated small group instruction with research-based strategies, focusing on the five essential components of reading: phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Students’ writing needs will continue to be addressed via our new “Being a Writer” program, adopted two years ago. Students learn how to be better readers and writers when they are provided quality models of literature, opportunities to practice, and appropriate feedback in an engaging environment. We use a variety of teaching and learning resources for math, allowing multiple opportunities for modeling, guided practice, and independent practice in a variety of ways. We, at Lincoln Elementary School, are continually addressing student academic needs and working toward alignment to the Common Core. Lincoln provides additional tutoring services for struggling students. We also have an ESL program for second-language learners.
Students may participate in a variety of after-school student enrichment opportunities – Homework Club, Cooking Club, Science Club, Reading Club or Drum Circle. 4th and 5th graders may participate in volleyball and basketball through the Casper Recreation Center. Due to our close proximity, many of your students participate in extra-curricular opportunities at the Boys and Girls Club. Lincoln Elementary School also hosts several parent involvement nights throughout the year.
