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

Your gifts will help us expand Everett Elementary's Ukulele Club into something truly special. This has been an incredible music education experience!

Donors helped award 16 ukuleles this spring to students who completed the required ukulele club meetings. Having ukuleles they can own gives students a musical experience they would otherwise not likely have. We want to expand this opportunity to even more Everett students for the 2017-18 school year.

Each semester we will allow a new group of students to enter the club and work toward earning their own FREE ukulele to keep.

With your help, you can provide a student-model ukulele at no cost to each club member who attends 75 percent of club meetings for Quarter 1 and Quarter 3.

Listen to students' progress so far this quarter!

Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools

Spark Summer Learning needs your help! As a STEAM based summer learning program, we provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent. Some of our projects are in need of more items to allow them to build everything their mind can imagine.

Our Spark-lers will be in the driver's seat as they conceptualize, plan, budget for, and execute the biggest project of the summer. Our students need to purchase several special materials, test their designs with several rapid prototypes, and potentially install and maintain their project. Currently our kiddos are brainstorming and coming to consensus.

This is very exciting for all of us, so thank you for supporting our students' ability to dream BIG this summer!

Moore Innovation

Moore Middle School

Your gifts can help make Moore and Goodrich middle schools the only two in the world with this unique keyboard instruction and curriculum.

Yamaha electronic keyboards are on loan to Goodrich Middle School for a pilot program and Yamaha has offered to sell the keyboards to Goodrich and to Moore Middle School for half price.

The program is unique because Brian Moore, associate professor of music education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has volunteered his expertise to write a curriculum that uses the iPad technology that already exists at the school. Moore’s work in education has been nationally recognized for its focus on implementing technology to teach music and composition.

The keyboards are split so two students can rehearse at the same time, using the same iPad. This keyboard lab would be used for a general music curriculum, a composition/arranging units of study, and possibly piano class for both students and an evening adult class. All sixth graders would have an opportunity to use this lab as well as elective music classes in seventh and eighth grade.
