Register Today!

The Lincoln PTA Registration for the 2021-22 school year is open now!

PTA Membership DOESN’T obligate you to volunteer or attend meetings. Your membership fee helps to support the administrative aspects of the Lincoln PTA, as well as finances some free PTA activities for all Lincoln Families and Staff throughout the year. If you’re interested in volunteering, please make sure to check out our volunteering opportunities after you register.

Being a Lincoln PTA member also includes some awesome benefits! You will receive Lincoln PTA Emails, keeping you in-the-know on all of our Lincoln PTA happenings. PTA Members can vote during our General PTA Meetings, so YOU get to help decide the direction of the Lincoln PTA. Have an idea for a great event or an initiative that would benefit Lincoln? Members also have the opportunity to chair an event or a committee of their choosing.

But wait, there’s more! Membership also gives you access to National PTA resources: grants, magazines, discounts, and special offers that are only available for paid PTA members. For more information on National PTA Benefits: click here.

This year: we have 4 registration options to choose from:

  • Faculty, $8: one vote at our general PTA meetings for our Lincoln Faculty Members
  • Individual, $8: one vote at our general PTA meetings
  • Family, $12: votes for up to 2 individuals in the same household at our general PTA meetings
  • Lynx, $25: votes for up to 2 individuals in the same household at our general PTA meetings. This membership also sponsors a grade-level shirt for one of our students whose families receive public aid* (17.4% of our population) and provides additional financial support to the PTA.

Don’t forget: after you have completed your registration process, check out some of our volunteer opportunities for the 2021-22 fiscal year. Remember: “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart” —Elizabeth Andrew

*Disclaimer: you will not receive a this shirt. This shirt will be gifted to a low-income student on your behalf. Thank you for your benevolence in supporting Lincoln School Spirit for all students! Keep an eye out for our grade-level shirt sale coming in August!

School Supply Boxes

Looking for an easy way to get back-to-school supplies that doesn’t include going to multiple stores, scouring the aisles for hours on end to get all the correct supplies?

Well, you’re in luck! The Lincoln PTA has made it easy for you to order your pre-filled back-to-school supplies for your child.

Simply go to our school toolbox, and select the box for your student based on grade level and last name. The box ships directly to you, and with every box ordered, Lincoln earns money AND you help support an incredible organization called Feed My Starving Children. It’s a win/win!

Lincoln Grows Stewardship Program!

Thank you for your interest in joining the LincolnGrows Stewardship Team!

We are looking for friends, families, and community members to come and help with summer maintenance of the outdoor classroom.

LincolnGrows is our outdoor classroom initiative designed to engage, inspire, and empower through getting outdoors. Studies have shown that schools with an outdoor curriculum score higher than those with traditional systems in 72% of assessments: in everything from math and science to attendance. Apart from academics, research shows that time in nature: facilitates physical development, reduces violence and bullying, develops and interest in science and math in connection with nature, increases cooperation, boosts cognitive functioning, reduces stress, improves focus and attention, and builds stewardship skills for the environment. For more information about LincolnGrows, Click Here!

What you can do:

-Sign up for a slot HERE

-Bring gloves & watering cans (and water bottles for you… it can get hot out there!)

-Weeding: if you aren’t sure if its a weed, PLEASE leave it alone. It is a big space, so don’t feel like you need to do everything. Every little bit helps!

-Water (if it hasn’t rained in the last 2 days) the plants that look thirsty. The water barrel in the southeast corner of the space should be full of water. High-maintenance fellows like our hydrangea should get hit with water every time you go out there. Our raised beds are irrigated, so you don’t need to water there.

-Explore the space with your group and see how nature can be used to teach: grit, growth mindset, curiosity, collaboration, and empathy. There might even be a few fun games out there to play while you work!

Thank you for supporting Lincoln and giving our kinesthetic learners a place to learn and grow!

Lincoln PTA Planner Proposal

Hi Lincoln Community!

The time has come to start setting up the schedule for PTA happenings at Lincoln for next year! Over the next few weeks, our newly elected PTA board will be setting the budget for next year and WE WANT YOUR INPUT! The Lincoln PTA is committed to supporting Lincoln’s Core Values of Grit, Growth Mindset, Curiosity, Collaboration, and Empathy.

Things are beginning to open up again, but, due to COVID, this year will still look very different than years past. Odds are that we will still not be able to have our large-scale events like Fall Fest, but even though things will look different, we are hoping to be able to follow along in the very successful vein of the QuaranTEAM Quest, STEM Week, Read-a-Thon, and the Hi-Jynx Scavenger hunt with things that will bring us together to the best of our ability.

If there is a fundraiser, event, or initiative that you have an idea for, enjoyed in the past, or maybe you are a new family joining us from Walkers Grove or Eagle Pointe… we would love to get your ideas for things you would like to see occur at Lincoln.

Below is our PTA planner. If you are interested in proposing something… the below planner may help you to get organized to provide the most details about your event.

If you would like to propose something, please submit your ideas to lincoln202pta@gmail.com no later than May 31st, 2021 to be considered for money allocated for next year’s budget.

We are also looking for chairs for the following committees. If you would like to volunteer (or chair) one of these committees, again, please email us at lincoln202pta@gmail.com:

  • CAPE (District PTO) Representative
  • Spiritwear/Class Color Shirts
  • Lincoln Loves Plainfield/No-Cook Nights
  • Yearbook
  • Fifth Grade Farewell
  • Staff Appreciation
  • LincolnGrows
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Thank you for your help and we look forward to safely seeing you all soon!
