Mission: Abraham Lincoln School No. 22 supports students as they work toward reaching state standards and school learning goals. It is a collaborative community of learners that challenges, empowers, and prepares all students to become productive, responsible, and contributing citizens in a global society.
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.
In addition to our hands-on approach to math (Math Investigations), our Math Academy Program encourages students to become fluent in basic facts by participating in weekly competitions. A new computer lab offers math programs such as Compass Learning to reinforce skills.
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 KBA Basketball,Safety Patrol,Scott Spino Literacy Foundation, Resiliency Program, Jr.Debutante/ Stepping into Manhood and Girl & Boy Scout programs.
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 academiccelebrations like the 100 Book Challenge.
Over 200 volunteers share in the support of our school’s mission. These include partnerships with of the First Unitarian Church, Buddies, Bridges & Brains, the Scott Spino Literacy Foundation, and the Free Partnership. Our 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 new computers and a Smartboard, which allows students to utilize various computer programs. Many of our classes have access to Smartboards, as well.
Our Alternative to Suspension program is built on preventative education, along with creating and building cohesive relationships with faculty, students, and parents. A full-time RCSD teacher and a full-time Center for Youth counselor staff the Alternative to Suspension room. The teacher keeps the student on target with classroom assignments and the counselor provides life skills workshops (for example, peer mediation, conflict resolution, and anger management).
Our Family C.A.R.E.E.R.S./ Toyota Family Literacy Program is an important component to Lincoln School No. 22. Family C.A.R.E.E.R.S. is a combined Family Literacy and work force development program run by the Rochester City School District’s Office of Adult and Career Education Services. Parents attend school with their children and participate in Literacy activities, adult education (GED and/ or ESL) and are partnered with a school employee mentor in a one-on-one relationship to gain valuable work skills. Parents can complete their TANF/ WEP hours at the school.
