Grade-level T-shirts are a great way for us to show our Lincoln Pride during spirit weeks! Grade-level shirts are worn during all of our larger-scale events and spirit weeks: The Grit Games*, Field Day, Growth Mindset Week, Collaboration Week, Empathy Week, and Curiosity Week. Your shirt purchase allows the Lincoln PTA to afford fun events and important school initiatives throughout the year. Deadline to order these shirts for in-classroom delivery is noon on 8/28.
We want our Grade-Level Shirts to be an inclusive endeavor for ALL Lincoln children, so if you are unable to afford a shirt for your student, please contact Cathy at email@example.com. She may be able to get a shirt for your child at no-cost.
Thank you for your support!
*August 28th at noon is the deadline to deliver shirts to your child’s classroom. We will be delivering these in September during Grit Week so the children can wear them for the Grit Games (Buddy Run). Shirts will be available for purchase after this cutoff; however, you may need to pay for shipping if you order after 8/28.
Join us for the Kindergarten Treasure Hunt* on Friday, August 13th at 9am! This is where you will meet your child’s teacher, drop off school supplies, and get your child comfortable with the Lincoln Building. Clubs (like the girl scouts) will be set-up in the multipurpose room if you would like more information.
Don’t forget to head out to the LincolnGrows outdoor classroom (in the back of the building) for a picture in our photo booth or with our mascot: Jynx the Lynx! PTA information will also be available, as well as an opportunity to register for the PTA to earn some prizes!
Our Back-To-School Social looks a little different this year*. Our event will be on Tuesday, August 17th, and we will be staggering the schedule based on your student’s Last Name.
A-L will be from 11:30AM-12:30PM
M-Z will be from 12:30PM-1:30PM
Remember to bring your school supplies, and check with the teacher to see if there is anything you can help with. Clubs will be set-up in the multipurpose room if you would like more information.
PTA information, including grade-level shirt info, and drawings will be available in the outdoor classroom. For Tuesday only, The WonderBus and Hazel Marie’s will be set up in the outdoor classroom selling ice cream and cookies and giving a portion of the proceeds to Lincoln! Cash Only!
*As new normal protocols continue in all Illinois schools, please make sure both you and your child are wearing a mask in the building.
Illinois PTA is hosting a series of webinar trainings and workshops. You can train at home, or with a friend; all you need is a computer with good internet connection or a phone to participate via conference call.

Register for each session that you want to attend.
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
