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.

Ukulele Club

Everett Elementary School

We want to expand Everett's Ukulele Club into something truly special. The goal of the funding request is to provide a student model ukulele at no cost to each club member who attends 75 percent of club meetings and completes a small school service project.

Your gifts will help purchase 15 ukuleles for students to take home after completion, Ukulele Club T-shirts for members of the club, and a four-month subscription to Ukulele Underground -- an online ukulele lesson and play-along site to be used in group and individual instruction.

We have been working with a ukulele builder and a local music retailer to provide instruments at a lower price. Just imagine the impact you could have in providing a quality musical instrument to a student in need!

5th Grade Camp

Riley Elementary School

Our fifth grade teachers will take the 65 students to Camp Carol Joy Holling in the spring. This is a celebration of their elementary career. The group does team-building activities, hiking, fishing and canoeing. The amount requested provides the bus and the day at the camp. The activities that students do strengthens their relationships with each other and helps build self-confidence as they prepare to head to middle school.

Supercalifragilistic...

Belmont Elementary

Belmont Elementary has been invited to Lincoln Southwest High School for their spring performance of “Mary Poppins.” Your gift will pay for the bus expenses incurred in taking approximately 530 students and staff to the performance. Belmont is in a high poverty area with 79% of our students receiving free or reduced lunches. Our school parent group is a very small group of about three adults. The group does not have the resources to fund this journey.

Belmont student families typically do not have the money to take their children to theater arts events. This experience will be an opportunity for teachers to demonstrate and teach their students proper etiquette and behavior in a theater setting. This is also an excellent opportunity for the Belmont students to enjoy a musical performance.
