At CSA Lincoln Elementary, we follow a simple motto of "Work Hard, Play Hard." We believe that school should be fun, and when school is fun, students are engaged and want to learn.

Our school has invested in people and relationships. Above all else, we base all decisions on what is best for students. This may require late nights or additional responsibilities by those working in our building, but it has become a way of life. At CSA Lincoln, it's not the exception but an expectation that we hold each other accountable too.

By genuinely getting to know our students, we can better understand how to support their learning needs. Regardless of a student's background or label, we challenge them to perform at their best. Investment by the students in this process is nearly impossible if you haven't taken the time to build a rapport with students. That is what sets us apart. Our teachers, staff, and administrators have invested heavily in building these relationships and believe that we can make a difference.

We also believe that every child should experience the joy of being successful. Success looks different for each child. It could be academic success, growing in their maturity, or making a new friend. The higher degree of difficulty in reaching that goal comes with a more fulfilling sense of accomplishment. Our goal is to push our students to reach their full potential. When that child achieves success, we celebrate it.
