The Vision of Kincaid Elementary is to create a learning environment where all students are motivated to work hard, do the right thing and learn something every day.

The mission of Kincaid Elementary is to encourage every individual child to reach his or her potential while celebrating the diversity of our school family. We strive to create a safe and cooperative environment where students will develop and demonstrate responsibility and respect for themselves and others.

We believe that every student should be valued for his or her unique qualities.

We believe that all decisions should be based on student learning and success.

We believe that students learn in different ways and that differentiated instruction should be provided to meet student needs.

We believe that a strong foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics is essential to success in all contest areas.

We believe that students learn best when they have the appropriate resources available to them, including state-of-the-art technology.

We believe that a safe and civil environment promotes optimal student learning.

We believe that academic success and strong character development is a shared responsibility of both the school and the families.

We believe that all students can attain character qualities and develop work habits that will assure greater success in learning.

  Some of Our Students Are Taking Control of Their Environment

Some of our Target students have developed their own DonorsChoose project. They did some research, analyzed data and created their own solution to a problem that they felt was important. Your donations (no matter how small) can help these students see their project completed.

Other teachers at Kincaid also create projects on DonorsChoose throughout the year. Please take a moment to look over the projects and think about giving a little to support the students at Kincaid. Share the link on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Email your friends and family members. Ask your employer if they match donations. With your help we can make sure our students have everything they need to grow and learn.

Donors Choose

Does your company have a donation matching program? Take a moment and check out Kincaid's DonorsChoose page and give to a class room right here at Kincaid. DonorsChoose is a wonderful resource for teachers that need/want supplies or equipment for their students. Give what you can, share the link with family and friends, post the link to Facebook and Twitter. It's a wonderful way to give back to your child's school.
