• LEAP Grid

    Every morning, we recite these words together: “At Lincoln-Eliot we celebrate our diversity, and work together to learn, grow, succeed and become our best selves.”

    We live these values through our commitment to our L.E.A.P. agreements.

    We are the Lincoln-Eliot Leopards and together we LEAP:

    • Learners: We are smart and capable. We persevere to go grow our brains.
    • Encouraging: We are kind and supportive.
    • Accountable: We take ownership of what we do and say.
    • Proud: We celebrate the many identities in our community. 

    Each month, we focus on a social-emotional skill (most of which are also highlighted in the EL Education Language Arts curriculum) - collaboration, initiative, respect, responsibility, integrity, empathy, compassion, perseverance, citizenship and pride. Students learn about and practice these skills in their classrooms, at school-wide assemblies, and at monthly meetings of cross-grade level groups. 

    The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) defines social and emotional learning (SEL) as an “integral part of education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.” At Lincoln-Eliot, we believe that supporting and nurturing students’ development of SEL skills leads to reaching academic success.
