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!

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!

Read-A-Thon AT Lincoln

We will be starting on:
04-07-2021

Welcome Parents, Students, and Friends to our Read-a-thon!

This year, we are excited to announce that we will hold a Read-a-thon fundraiser. Our Read-a-thon is a program that brings students together with family and friends to encourage reading and to build literacy skills, EVEN AT-A-DISTANCE! The main focus of the Read-a-thon is for everyone to know we are committed to improving reading skills. To that end, the Read-a-thon promises to be a fun, exciting journey for all participants as they begin a personal Reading Adventure that challenges each reader to complete 10 reading sessions over our 2-week event.

Our Read-a-thon will start April 7, 2021.

We encourage you to activate your reader’s account today by clicking on https://www.read-a-thon.com/readers/r/GoTdBe and following the simple instructions. (search by teacher or by code you received from your teacher)

We understand that, as parents, you have high expectations for the quality of your child’s education but also have limited time. That’s why we chose to hold a Read-a-thon. You will find this to be the easiest fundraiser possible. By simply activating your reader’s personal page and using the promotional tools found there, friends and family anywhere in the world can show their support for your reader by making a donation to your Read-a-thon.

But wait, there’s more! 

The Top 3 Readers and the Top 3 Earners at Lincoln will win a prize!

Eric Smith said that “When kids grow up not seeing themselves in books, they grow up feeling like they don’t matter.” Instead of teachers having to pay out-of-pocket to add variety to their classroom libraries, this fundraiser is helping teachers supplement their classroom libraries with more diverse books! If we exceed our fundraising goal for books, the money raised by this fundraiser will also go towards enhancing PTA initiatives that will better reflect our physically, mentally, and emotionally diverse Lincoln Community. Curious about some of the characteristics at Lincoln? You can check out our Illinois Report Card!

Your involvement in the Read-a-thon will help your child develop a lasting love of reading. We hope each one of you will activate your child’s personal page the day your child brings home their paperwork.
