“It is our mission to grow students and ensure high levels of achievement for all.”
Lincoln Elementary School currently serves students from the North Casper neighborhood, as well as imports students from all over Casper. Lincoln continues to be “The Home of the Hardest Working Students in Casper.” The goal of the school is to build strong foundations that lead to unlimited future success in our students. Our continuous school improvement efforts are addressed through our leadership team and four goal teams – K-2 primary reading, 3-5 intermediate reading, math, and behavior – always seeking out effective, evidence-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 and staff at Lincoln Elementary School deliver standards-based units and lessons that follow the NCSD curriculum. In a combination of grade-level, whole-class activities and differentiated small group lessons, we incorporate research-based strategies into our instructional planning and delivery. Five years ago, we rolled out our new ELA (reading and writing) program, EL Education’s K-5 Language Arts Program from Open Up Resources. We will continue to focus on the five essential components of reading – phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension – as well as the fundamentals of writing. 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 Eureka Math2 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 before- and after-school student enrichment opportunities, to include Homework Clubs, Reading Club, Sign Language Club, and Lego Robotics. 4th and 5th graders can participate in volleyball and basketball through the Casper Recreation Center. Due to our close proximity, many of our students participate in after-school programming and extra-curricular opportunities at the Boys and Girls Club. Lincoln Elementary School also hosts several parent involvement nights throughout the year.
Lincoln ES has four preschool programs. Our morning sessions run from 8:40 to 11:25 a.m.; afternoon sessions from 12:45 to 3:30 p.m. Our preschool programs accept students starting at age 3.
K-5 classes run from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Breakfast is served from 8:10 to 8:30 a.m.
