The Lincoln Staff has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to educate, support, and engage our kiddos remotely, and we wanted to orchestrate a little something to celebrate them for this winter season.
If you find yourself shopping over the next week, and you feel inspired to donate: we have a list of items* here that you can sign up to donate! Tinyurl.com/winterappreciation
There will be a big tote outside Lincoln from Monday 12/7-Friday 12/11 for item dropoff, or contact email@example.com and one of our elves can pop by your house for pickup!
Flyers to join the PTA went out in your child’s take-home material bag, but we wanted to make it official:
IT’S TIME TO JOIN THE PTA FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR!
If you were in the PTA last year, your membership ends on September 30th and we don’t want you to miss out on some of the fun things we are doing this year. We are *hoping* to have things back to normal by January, but in the meantime, we are planning a calendar that adheres to social distancing guidelines set up by the CDC.
Through fundraising efforts, the PTA has been able to purchase educational materials and equipment, build an outdoor classroom, support classroom teachers, purchase water bottle filling stations, purchase technology for the media center, and support school activities (like the Hi-Jynx Scavenger Hunt that starts tomorrow in YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!).
A membership is the first and easiest step to becoming a part of the PTA. Your annual support of $8 per individual (1 vote) and $12 per family (2 votes)* helps fund school improvements, events, programs, and more. The PTA is made up of parents, teachers, and staff. The PTA is a great way to get information about the events that are happening at Lincoln, meet people, show your support, and it gives you a vote at any PTA general meeting.
*Due to COVID, we will only be accepting online PTA registrations this year. Please use our link to register for the PTA and stay in-the-know on all things Lincoln!
In response to COVID-19, we are doing only online SHIP to HOME for school supplies this year. It is open now and closes out August 1st. Go to their website www.schooltoolbox.com. Questions? Contact Erin Keane or shoot us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the request of several families (some of whom are graduating fifth grade families who would like to honor their children’s achievement) the Lincoln Elementary PTA has decided to reopen the brick fundraiser that was due to close in April.
What better way to leave the mark of your child, family, or that special teacher for all to see than with a personalized engraved brick? Funds raised by this drive will be used to support Lincoln Grows, our outdoor classroom initiative. Any excess funds will be used to support one of the many events and initiatives sponsored throughout the school year by the Lincoln Elementary PTA.
Each brick costs $85, and that includes engraving, shipping, and installation of the pavers. Just tell us what you want it to say, and we will handle the rest! Each brick is 4×8 and has 3 lines that can be engraved up to 13 characters per line. One special graphic can be added and is included in the price; however, the icon takes up three spaces in two lines of the grid.
