Welcome to the Randolph Elementary School website. It is our hope that students, families and neighbors use this website as a resource for current information pertaining to our school community. Our Mission is educating all children well. This means we work together to develop children who are: effective consumers of the information, lifelong learners, responsible citizens of the world, and active students who develop positive self-images.
Message from Principal Kristen Finley
It is an honor to be named the principal of Randolph Elementary School. This is my 21st year working for Lincoln Public Schools and it is a pleasure to serve our students, parents and staff. A Randolph School has existed in Lincoln since the 1868. Our current building has been our school for the past 85 years, and thousands of children have learned to read, to write, and to compute mathematics here. They have also learned to be responsible citizens, cooperative workers, and leaders in our nation, community, and families. (Click here to see our Randolph School history.)
Randolph is currently home to approximately 450 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and our families represent a wide variety of economic realities. Randolph is a Title One school that is organized into grade level instructional teams. Our specialists (Art, Music, Physical Education, and Technology) support students on a daily basis as well as our Interventionists, Librarian, Family Care Coach, Social Worker, Counselor and Special Education Staff. All staff work closely with the administrative team to provide focused instruction as we implement a rigorous academic program across every grade level.

At Randolph, we abide by our Code of Conduct and make sure students understand and can demonstrate what it looks like and sounds like to be Safe, Respectful, Honest, Responsible, and Courteous. Ours is a safe, orderly, respectful environment that promotes high levels of student engagement and performance. There are two guiding principles for acceptable behavior: first, it is never okay to be hurtful; and second, it is never okay to be disruptive.
Honoring the diversity and unique strengths and talents of each student guides our planning for individual success. We hope you will see why we are so proud of our students, families, and staff when you visit our website and our school.
Mrs. Kristen Finley
