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.


The ABC's of the Everyday Heroes are Act, Believe and Care

ACT - Do Something 

If something is not right, don't stand by and watch.


BELIEVE -Believe you can make a difference

You can do something that will have an impact.


CARE - Care about yourself and others.

Promote healthy relationships.





 What do we do?

The Everyday Heroes sponsor activities and events throughout the school year. 

We have taken on projects  such as:

  • Marches Against Bullying
  • Creating Videos & Materials Exploring Prejudice, Stereotypes, and Discrimination
  • Creating a New Student Orientation Program
  • Educational Assemblies
  • Developing a Buddy Training Program for Students
  • ​Supporting Students in Conflict Resolution
