Family Literacy

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.

Student Emergency Needs

It's hard to learn math when you are hungry, cold or scared. Help us make sure all students are fed, warm and safe, so they can come to school ready to learn. Our Students in Need funds help families and students when emergency needs arise. We help close the gap, like making sure there is a warm coat to wear, something to eat, and the electricity is still on. Many students need your support. Please consider a donation to the Student Emergency Fund.

Recording Skills

Prescott Elementary

Have you ever listened or watched yourself preform a new skill? It was so easy to say, "Whoa! I want to change that," or "I sounded awesome!" The Easi-Speak USB recorder can help me provide Prescott first graders the opportunity to have this experience. The device is sturdy and easy to use. Students can listen to their recordings instantly and reflect on their own skills. Students' files can be loaded onto the computer and shared with the student's family. These devices will provide and engaging enhancement in the reading program for students in this class and in classrooms for years to come.

Prescott has a diverse population of eager students. The school is in a high poverty area with 70% of our students qualifying for free or reduced price lunches. The Easi-Speak USB recorders are study and available through a reliable school supply company.

Clinton Zoologists

Clinton Elementary School

We would love to end the school year animal learning by visiting the Omaha Zoo. Throughout the year we study animals, animal babies, and animal habitats in our science, writing, and reading curriculums. During second semester, students choose and animal and construct their own research books, highlighting important information about their animal. This is a big project for our first graders. You can make it an even bigger project by helping to fund this field trip that, for many Clinton students, will be the experience of a lifetime.

Thank you for your support!

Athletic Shoes

LPS High Schools

Your gifts can help hundreds of students participate in athletics this year in Lincoln Public Schools.

One-third of LPS students participate in athletics, building character, camaraderie and teamwork outside the classroom for thousands of students. With more and more students qualifying for free and reduced lunch -- 43 percent of LPS students qualify -- financial barriers to participation are becoming more common. This fund will provide athletic shoes (and physicals in some cases) to students in need, opening the door to participating in sports while giving students the freedom to feel like every other student on the team.

Your gifts are important to give all LPS students the opportunity to succeed. Thank you for your consideration.
