The Everyday Heroes Program started at Lincoln in 2010, as a 12 week after-school group for 4th graders. It has grown into a weekly group for 4th and 5th graders running the entire school year. Initially it was funded by a grant from the Thompson Education Association. Currently, it is funded by Lincoln staff, who donate their time and resources. Each year the group is committed to earn NO PLACE FOR HATE status through the Anti-Defamation League's No Place for Hate Program. The group has
successfully earned this honor for the past two years, and is in the
process of this work for the 2013-2014 school year.
What do we learn?
The group spends a lot of time learning to work together. We do
cooperative adventures that require critical thinking and teamwork.
This is vital to the success of the group. We learn skills to support
self awareness & understanding, empathy, self-regulation, leadership, and individual and collective responsibility. Students are able to earn badges, for their efforts and successes. Many of the badges decorate this page.
