“Welcome to Saratoga, Home of the Saratoga Stars!” At Saratoga we pride ourselves at being able to offer a safe friendly environment for students and families. Saratoga serves students Pre-school through 5th grade and is a Title I School. We have two classroom teachers at each grade level from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our school houses two inclusive ExCite classrooms, one in the morning and in the afternoon. In addition, Saratoga has the benefit of offering Reading Recovery services to students in grade 1. Students also benefit from both vocal and instrumental music, art, physical education and a library/media center. Saratoga students also have access to a full computer lab plus lap top computers to use during the day. Saratoga has a breakfast program that starts at 7:45 A.M. We work as a staff to teach our students life skills. Saratoga uses the B.I.S.T. (Behavior Intervention Support Team) program while teaching these skills. Our students learn expectations while being protected. They know that it is never okay to be disruptive or hurtful. The school provides a community connection for our students, their families, and community businesses. The Lena Merrill Community Learning Center provides year round programs to our families through educational, social, mental health, and recreational services. The Community Learning Center works in partnership with Lincoln Family Services and Lincoln Public Schools Federal Programs. Please contact me with any questions or comments.

Mission Statement:

“Our mission is to provide a safe and respectful environment where each student experiences a motivating and challenging curriculum that fosters family involvement and proficiency in all subject areas.”

Mission Snapshot: (This is recited by our staff and students at every Monday Morning Meeting, which is an all school assembly strengthening our school community.)

“The mission of every student, parent and staff is to learn. We know effort works and we give 100%!”
