Lincoln Elementary School is a neighborhood school serving the population of southwestern Augusta. Lincoln is one of the newest schools in Augusta having opened in September of 1988.
Lincoln meets the varied needs of its students through a variety of programs. In addition to the fourteen regular classes there are: a gifted and talented program, a Title One program, a Project Pride program, a computer lab, a library/media center, a variety of special education programs and Art, French, Music and Physical Education programs. Lincoln's staff works hard to provide an academic program which challenges students to achieve to their highest potential.
Its only been a few days, but the school year is off and running. Students are quickly getting back into routines as teachers establish their expectations for academics and behaviors. This year, our staff will be learning about Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). This means establishing consistent core values and expectations in all areas of the building with staff utilizing common language with all of our students. We are looking forward to learning more about this practice with a goal to be fully implemented come school year 17/18.
Attending school regularly is important to the academic success of our students. Here is a great resource for parents to access when looking at school attendance and supporting their child: http://www.absencesaddup.org/. At Lincoln, attendance is always a goal of ours. Each month, we strive for 94% school wide. Our students get recognized on a monthly basis for their efforts. When students are sick, we certainly want them to stay home, but we appreciate our parents’ efforts with their attention to this. Establishing consistent routines at home such as checking student planners, a place to do homework, and going to bed at a good time will contribute to student success.

Lincoln School Report Card
The Maine Department of Education released this year's letter grades to all Maine schools. We are proud to say that Lincoln's report card for this year is a B (280 points). We went up 13 points and a letter grade from our previous year score. We went up in all but one of the sub groups. The grade is based on our NECAP (New England Comprehensive Assessment Program) three-year average scores in reading and math, as well as our PAAP (Personalized Alternate Assessment Portfolio) results. The scores reflect the school’s overall students who met/exceeded proficiency, students who showed growth, and the growth of the students who scored in the bottom 25% from the previous year. Lincoln staff will continue its efforts with improving instruction in the areas of math, reading, and writing as well as providing our students with direct support to meet their academic needs.
