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.

Sensory Safari

Lux Middle School

I have a classroom of students with significant mental, visual, sensory and physical impairments. I would love to have the opportunity to take them to the Children's Zoo for the Sensory Safari. This would provide my students not only with a community experience, but also a hands-on interpretative experience with the zoo, nature center and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Staff. The staff leads students through a variety of stations while incorporating the use of student's vision, smell, hearing, touch and feel.

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.
