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.

Coping Bags

McPhee Elementary School

Last year we noticed that “coping bags” helped students work through overwhelming emotions that previously got in the way of learning. Your gifts will help us purchase materials to create coping bags that include two or three tactile items will keep students in the classroom longer to receive as much quality instruction as possible.

These bags gently ease students through the process of de-escalation while assisting them in re-focusing on their studies. Once students have calmed, they are able to quickly process through whatever issue has come up and get back to the task at hand – academics.

Let's Play Soccer!

Prescott Elementary School

We think everyone should be able to play on a soccer team. This fall we would like to register 10 players from Irving Middle School and Prescott Elementary -- of these 10, four will need one-time uniform packages. Your gifts will also help us purchase practice materials like soccer balls, shin guards and socks. The YMCA is generously giving us 50 percent off the registration fee for our players, we just need to fund the rest.

Solar Eclipse

Goodrich Middle School

This year, on August 21, there will be a total solar eclipse that occurs over Lincoln. The next time we will be able to see a total solar eclipse here is 2023. Since this eclipse will occur on a Sunday, we would like to purchase solar eclipse glasses for our students to safely see the eclipse with their families.

One of the eighth grade science standards is to understand lunar and solar eclipses. Having access to the glasses will allow students to experience the eclipse safely with their families, creating a family learning experience that will benefit current students, their parents, and their siblings. Students in the sixth and seventh grades will also have lessons about the eclipse so that when the are in eighth grade they will have had an experience with eclipses. Currently, we have 780 students who will be involved -- 78 percent of whom are part of our free and reduced lunch program and the experience might not be possible if we don't provide the structure and equipment.
