Bubba's Closet, an annual charity event, donated over 900 winter coats to children in need from LPS! Unfortunately, there's still a waiting list for students in need of a coat. If you are able, please read more to learn how you can donate!
Many students in LPS were influenced by Andrea Kaborek, and her inspirational battle with cancer. During her final days, she coined the phrase, “I can, I will.” With these words of wisdom in mind, the Foundation is helping Andrea’s influence continue to affect student’s lives through the Andrea Kaborek "I Can, I Will" Cross Country Scholarship.
The Sue and Roger Kirby Science Enhancement Fund is a resource for students and educators seeking funding for hands-on research projects. Students learn the scientific process through experiments, and explore the world around them through science!
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.
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.
Middle school students have a way of saying the funniest things. Your gifts will help us capture their voices while at the same time using their words to create powerful learning. Creating podcasts and vidoes allows students to publish audible stories and tutorials to use in many creative settings such as: school and special activity announcements; book-reads for special needs students; and creative dialog and storytelling.
With a creative base set of tools, students will strengthen their talents and skills as they further develop ways to communicate through technology-- with voice, with drawings, and with video.
Each year we have the opportunity to expose our students (many of whom have never had this chance) to a fishing excursion. Thus far, we have had to hunt and gather enough supplies each year to make this happen. Your gifts will outfit our club with a set of 12 simple rod/reel combos and basic tackle that we would be able to use year after year with our group.

Your gifts can help purchase and replace equipment needed in PANgea, an LPS steel drum band. You can PANgea continue to thrive and provide memorable musical experience to percussionists across Lincoln Public Schools. Instruments were originally purchased in 2003. All additional equipment since then has been added from the group's founder's personal inventory.
We hope to replace a set of double second pans, as well as the cymbals for our drumset. Thank you for considering a donation to PANgea!
