LincolnGrows Needs You!

Are you looking for a way to get your kids outside while giving back to your community? Take part in our LincolnGrows Stewardship Team! Take your kids out and teach them about science, diversity, empathy, and preservation while taking care of our outdoor classroom.

Choose a day to be in charge of watering and weeding the garden. You choose the date and time! Pick either a Sunday or Monday date, or a Thursday or Friday date. You can go whatever time fits into your family’s schedule, but the weather is typically coolest earlier in the morning or later in the evening.

Current conditions with COVID prevent us from providing universal watering cans at the school, so you will need to bring your own watering cans and gloves. Water can be obtained from the water barrel and please only water the plants that need it. Only weed as long as you are comfortable. Take a small section and clear it of weeds as best as you can: there will always be more weeds than you have time for.

You can partner with another person/family if you are comfortable, but please no more than 10 people total at a time and remember to practice social distancing.

Also: if your kiddos are asking what the plants are in the space: please feel free to use our Plant ID Book!

2020-2021 Brainstorm

Hi Lincoln PTA Families,

I think we all can agree that since March 2020, our world has changed quite a bit. It is said that you hope for the best but prepare for the worst; and that has never been truer than it is right now. 

With so many unknowns, the newly elected Lincoln PTA Board has been working hard with Administration to scale elements previously experienced in-person to ones that will fit the environment we are most likely to face in August.

We are currently attempting to brainstorm ways we can stay connected-at-a-distance: virtual events, fundraisers, CDC compliant events with less than 50 people, etc. And if you or your older children are willing to volunteer experience in digital media, graphic design, animation, or video production: please let us know!

We are planning a web conference on Wednesday, June 17th at 6:00pm to brainstorm some of these things and WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! If you would like to be included in that planning meeting (even if your incoming kindergartener hasn’t yet begun at Lincoln) please email us at lincoln202pta@gmail.com so we can forward you the call info. And if you can’t make it to the meeting but still have an idea, please feel free to comment below or use our Suggestion Box!

Please join us in our quest as we strive to engage and improve the Lincoln experience by bringing together staff, families, and the wider community to create a respectful, responsible and safe learning environment where students can excel and feel confident in themselves. #LincolnProud

Share the Love!

Hi Lincoln Community!

To celebrate the last couple days in May, we would LOVE to see/hear the ways that your teachers came together to make the last few weeks of remote learning special for you and your children.

Lincoln Staff: if you’re proud of something, post it! It is a chance to share some really cool ideas that other teachers can utilize to connect with their students in the future.

Let’s let each and every one of our staff know that they’re so very appreciated by posting how your teacher went the extra mile here or over on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/lincolnptaplainfield
