The DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Committee would like to invite you to the Inaugural “Cocoa & Conversations” a monthly event, where adults from diverse backgrounds, communities, cultures and beliefs can talk to one another.

It’s pizza time! Starting today and for the next 4 weeks, Lincoln Fifth Graders are selling Pizza Kits to raise money so we can celebrate the Fifth Grade Farewell! To reach our goal and be successful, we need everyone’s help. It’s super easy to join the fun!
If you have a fifth grader: follow this link to create your very own Seller page. You can customize your page, upload a video, create an avatar, and watch how many pizza kits you’ve sold. You’ll get your own special link to send to your friends and family so they can buy delicious pizza kits and support our fundraiser. Pizza Kits will be delivered directly to their home by FedEx, so send the link to your out of state family and friends, too. You can even post your Seller link on your social media pages. Every kit we sell earns $6 profit and makes an impact. Don’t forget to buy some for yourself!
If you’d love to help fund the Fifth Grade Farewell but aren’t interested in pizza? You can also donate directly to this event via a Fifth Grade Farewell donation.
-Liaison between PTA and teachers for Core-value weeks in supporting classroom parties. (Collaborate with your team and teacher on activities kids can complete in class. Currently, we cannot have parent volunteers actually IN the classroom due to Covid, so you would just be dropping off activities, crafts, or games to the school for your classroom teacher.) First up: Empathy for our friends (Valentine’s day)
-Have the opportunity to volunteer during school hours in the OUTDOOR classroom and get to know some of the students!
-Lead Collaborators will be chosen at random, and will coordinate communication for the team. Sign up by Wednesday 1/26 to be included in the drawing! You will be given a chance to opt out of the Lead drawing during sign up if you don’t want that role.
