Swartzendruber Award for Academic Excellence
Lincoln Elementary is the back to back Swartzendruber Award Winner for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years! The award is given to the school that shows the most growth on Iowa Assessments.
Lincoln Elementary School is an awesome place to learn! Lincoln is home to 430 elementary students in pre-k through 5th grade. If you visit Lincoln you will find wonderful students, fabulous parents, and a staff so dedicated they stay late every week to write lesson plans with their team. We have a family night once a month for families to come and see what their students are doing at school and to see how parents can help at home. Student achievement goals focus on literacy and math. School climate and safety are promoted through PBIS. We also use Cool Tools, which are videos of our Lincoln students doing their job and making good choices. All classrooms have community time in the morning to build a sense of community in the classroom and in the school as a whole.
In addition to our families and staff we also have a great network with our partners in education. They work hard to ensure our students have everything they need to be successful at school. From donations of dress code clothing to pen pals to our adopt-a-family during the holidays, our partners are great about helping Lincoln when the need arises.
If you ever have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to call or set up an appointment to meet.
Lincoln Elementary, Watch Us Grow!!
