Lincoln Elementary, known as "A Small School with A Big Heart," is a kindergarten through fourth grade elementary school, located in the historic suburban community of St. Charles, Missouri, along the Missouri River. Lincoln Elementary has mastered the art of building and fostering lasting relationships. Relationships and connection are at the heart of everything we do at Lincoln Elementary School, therefore we have a rich tradition of family and community engagement.
The way that our staff interacts and supports each other, lays the foundation for how our staff supports our students and their families. Our interactions create a culture of trust, care, respect, and high expectations. When problems arise that have the potential to negatively impact our school culture, we all hold ourselves accountable to act with integrity and do what is best for the school community. Our dedication to maintaining a healthy culture produces outstanding results for the students, families, and staff at Lincoln. This culture creates lasting connections and relationships.
We develop and strengthen our relationships with our students, their families, and our community, as we believe these connections contribute much to our school success. This is done through the foundation of Restorative Practices, community building circles, and Positive Behavior Supports. Due to our predictable structures, dedication to building authentic relationships, and high expectations, we have exceptional and lasting connections with students. The strength of these connections result in emotional safety felt by students and adults and high student academic achievement. Lincoln's size may be small, but our impact is large.
