Solar Eclipse Glasses for All!

Students of all ages in Lincoln Public Schools will have a once in a lifetime opportunity on August 21, 2017, to view a total solar eclipse. The event will start as the moon begins blocking out the sun around 11:00 a.m. A complete shadow, or totality, will occur around 1:00 p.m. giving students at all LPS schools a front row seat on this astrological event just by walking outside the door.

Family Literacy - 2Gen

Family Literacy aims to help students and parents of all cultures learn imporant English language literacy skills. Last year, the program helped 120 students and 120 parents learn these skills, and 97% of participants thought that the program had made a significant difference! In addition to language skills, the Family Literacy program helps parents understand the importance of supporting their children's education.

Activities Assistance Fund

For most families, parents can support the equipment and supplies needed to be a part of a team. But for some, this can become a barrier to participate. This fund helps level the playing field. Each student who qualifies receives a voucher to purchase shoes, equipment and a physical provided by a community partner. Last year alone we distributed over $9,000 to 109 athletes. Help a student now so they can be a part of the team.

Wysong Zoo Trip

Wysong Elementary School

Wysong first grade students hope to take a field trip to the Lincoln Children's Zoo on May 5, 2017. This is a perfect field trip for first graders because we learn about animals' wants/needs, body coverings, food, and habitats throughout the year. The students will have fun applying their knowledge as they see real live animals! Wysong students will be able to participate in the Lincoln community as they practice being responsible, respectful, and safe.

Become Writers

Clinton Elementary School

Help us travel to the Plum Creek Literacy Festival at Concordia College in Seward on September 29, 2017! We need bus transportation to learn from real-life authors that we have spent time studying about. We get so excited to read books by these authors and try out some of their writing techniques in our own writing. We learn about what made these authors keep persevering even when they did not succeed on their first try. It is beneficial for our students to understand and value the skill of perseverance and determination!

Your gifts will help students listen to real life authors that we have studied in a small group setting. The students will also have the opportunity to ask questions. We appreciate any and all support to get our writers excited to create compositions of their own!

Empowerment

Huntington Elementary School

A variety of fifth grade students at Huntington have the opportunity to participate in the Young Men's and Women's empowerment clubs. We focus on building leadership, character, and responsibility by providing experiences that offer students the opportunity to reflect, set goals, and learn how to build these valuable traits.

Students are encouraged to set themselves apart by dressing for success on days we meet as a club. They participate in community service projects and go on field trips around the community. Overall, these students have impact and are mentored in such a way that empowers them to build their leadership and character skills for the betterment of their community.

Your gifts will provide formal dress apparel for students in addition to a variety of field trip opportunities that students would otherwise not experience.
