Learn more about Lincoln/Roosevelt School.
Roxbury's Lincoln Roosevelt Elementary School has a rich history of providing students with the academic and social tools that have led them to successful careers in an ever-changing and ever-expanding global market. The tradition of excellence in education continues as our current enrollment of approximately five hundred students enjoys the many opportunities available to them. In addition, the 2018/2019 school year culminated with the determination of five core values which will reinforce the ideals that are worked towards each day. These core values, as well as an emphasis on responsive classroom practices, are tangible reminders of the emphasis our school places on social emotional learning.
Lincoln Roosevelt's focus is to provide students with a well-rounded education. LRS's curriculums are aligned to state standards which promote 21st century learning skills. Students participate in cycle classes that emphasize art, music, foreign language and technology. Students may participate in enrichment opportunities such as band, orchestra and choir. Each day students have a designated time (LAP) where they may receive extra help from teachers or participate in the Gifted & Talented program.
Clubs and other after-school activities complement our curricular offerings and allow our students yet another venue to explore a wide range of interests. Currently students have the opportunity to participate in the following extracurricular activities: Art Club, Computer Club, Forensics, Student Council, Honors Choir, and our community-service club, K-Kids.
Our school welcomes scouting, art classes, STEAM classes, coding and many other community programs for after-school enrichment through the Roxbury Community School portal.
A great deal of collaboration occurs among the teachers at each grade level, using a learning community format to provide interdisciplinary experiences when possible. To support these collaborative efforts, a large classroom has been dedicated for teachers to combine their classes for related activities. Furthermore, supervisors dedicated to subjects specific to Grades K through 5 and 6 through 12 engage in a variety of tasks that help guide the direction of our curricular programs.
The Special Education Department provides an excellent program for students in the least restrictive environment with programming designed to meet specific needs. In addition, Lincoln Roosevelt offers support for English Language Learners, as well as an I&RS committee designed to help struggling learners.
The goal of the health and physical education program is to help students establish habits, attitudes and skills that will aid them with understanding and appreciating physical activity and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle. This has further been supported by the school's recent adoption of the "Health and Wellness Program."
Lincoln Roosevelt School has a very active PTO that supports school curriculum and student activities. They take leadership roles in running book fairs, purchasing items for the students, coordinating student end of year activities, and providing assemblies for the school.
Lincoln Roosevelt's well-equipped library/media center is furnished with Chromebooks, iPads and desktop computers. It offers students a variety of research tools. Changes have been made to the main entrance of the school to increase security measures. The new security vestibule has been built as part of a district-wide initiative to increase the physical security of our buildings. In addition, there have been new windows installed in the Lincoln building and the roof of the school has been replaced.
New safety measures have been put into place for the transition of students to their parents/guardians. New practices have been enacted for visitors who must now scan their ID card, wear a lanyard, and be escorted to their point of destination. In addition, the school often participates in extensive emergency drills to make students and staff accustomed to various safety protocols.
Students are able to interact with makerspaces that are housed in the media center. 3D printers have been supplied to 6th grade science teachers to promote students actively creating projects that can be brought to life. In addition, end of the year projects have been created for the students allowing them to participate in team activities that challenge them to encompass cross-curricular skills to complete such tasks.
Lincoln Roosevelt prides itself on providing a unique learning experience for our students. It is a school that brings together four different elementary schools. Its mission is to bring together students as a graduating class and prepare them for the challenges that lie ahead in middle school and high school. Students are provided with an increased amount of opportunities to showcase their talents and become more independent in their learning experiences. This year, L/R is moving toward utilizing its new Core Value program, as well as Responsive Classroom methodologies, to adapt and promote awareness of social and emotional learning.
