At Abraham Lincoln School No. 22:
Reading instruction is enhanced through the 100 Book Challenge Independent Reading Program which provides reading materials at students’ independent reading level and helps them progress to more advanced levels. The Principal's Book of the Month and Literacy Night enable students and parents to share in the joy of reading.
We embrace and support Spanish-speaking students through a Bilingual Program that develops literacy in English and Spanish at grades K-6. Both Spanish and English languages are used throughout the building and an appreciation for both languages is modeled in various school activities.
Our PBIS program and Model Student programs reward students for making positive choices. Our students follow “Lincoln Laws” by being responsible, respectful and safe. Students earn “Gotcha” tickets when they are caught “doing the right thing,” by the staff. They then visit the “Gotcha” store where they purchase prizes. (For example: lunch with an administrator or other school staff of their choice, school supplies, games, toys, etc.) In addition, our Model Students are recognized school-wide and participate in fun activities to celebrate their positive behavior. Students can participate in programs such as the Safety Patrol, and the Resiliency Program.
Celebrations are held throughout the school year including a Multicultural Fair and a Spring Carnival organized by our community partners. We celebrate Hispanic Heritage and Black History Months as well as academic celebrations like the 100 Book Challenge.
Over 200 volunteers share in the support of our school’s mission. These include partnerships with the First Unitarian Church, AmeriCorps, Baden Street, The Community Place of Rochester, Eastman Rochester New Horizons, Greater Rochester Quality Partner Council, Anthony Jordan Health Center, and the Scott Spino Literacy Foundation. Our Scott Spino volunteers work with students on one-to-one reading activities that encourage them to develop a love of reading.
Our computer lab and mobile laptop computer lab are used in classrooms to assist students in learning and using technology. The library is equipped with computers and a Smartboard which allows students to utilize various computer programs. Many of our classes have access to Smartboards as well.
