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!

One Moore

Moore Middle School

The One Book, One Moore program will include collaboration of teachers across multiple curricular areas and will be instrumental in connecting the book to learning objectives and social action. The title we are going to start the program with is The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Young Readers Edition by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. It is a true story about a boy in Malawi, Africa, who built an electricity-producing windmill from spare parts and scraps. The prevalent themes of innovation, imagination, ingenuity, and problem-solving will connect curricular area concepts and objectives in all grade levels.

All students at Moore Middle School will have an opportunity to read the novel. Along with making connections to curriculum objectives, students will have an opportunity to extend their learning by taking part in a community cause as well as a global cause. Although William Kamkwamba's story takes place in Africa, the topics and issues encountered affect us all and include education, food production, energy, cultural transition, and international development. Students will have the opportunity to take part in a global cause through Moving Windmills or the We Movement.

Art Display

Lincoln High School

Your gift will help more than 600 Lincoln High artists (per semester) display their work in a proper setting. These panels are professional display boards allowing students to present their work in a quality manner during the Fall and Spring Art Shows (which have been a long standing tradition at Lincoln High.) These panels will help support the Art "power" standard of Present giving students an understanding of how to arrange and display their art work.

The current panels were donations from the early 1980’s and are showing their wear (and are older than one of our teachers!). We would like to give our ninth-12th grade students pride in the quality of how their work is presented. These panels could also be utilized by others within the school.
