Parent Center

Parent involvement at the elementary school level is like the heart of a vibrant community, beating with warmth and support for our learners. When parents actively participate in their child's education, magic happens within the school walls.

Imagine a place where the connection between home and school is not just a link but a strong, caring bond. Parents bring the magic of learning home, reinforcing the joy of discovery that happens in the classroom. This collaboration turns our school into a haven of positive energy and shared enthusiasm for education.

Communication becomes a dance of understanding between teachers and parents, creating a harmonious rhythm that helps address each child's unique needs. It's a partnership that goes beyond report cards; it's about celebrating successes, tackling challenges together, and cheering on every step of the educational journey.

Our school, with engaged parents, becomes more than just a place of lessons—it transforms into a supportive community. This community isn't just about academics; it's a network that nurtures the social and emotional growth of our students. Together, we create an environment where children feel secure, valued, and ready to embrace the joy of learning.

Parent Engagement Opportunities

School Site Council (SSC)

The School Site Council (SSC) is a collaborative decision-making body composed of parents, teachers, and school staff. It plays a crucial role in developing and reviewing the school's improvement plan, budget, and policies. The SSC aims to ensure that key stakeholders have a voice in shaping the educational priorities and direction of the school.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a group formed at schools to support English language learners and their families. Comprising parents of English learners, teachers, and other school staff, ELAC discusses and advises on matters related to language acquisition programs, services, and resources. Its primary focus is to enhance communication and collaboration between the school and the families of English learners.

Parents And Lincoln Staff (PALS)

All schools have parent organizations that support the school with fundraising and community building events.  Sometimes they are called the PTA.  Here at Lincoln we have PALS, a non-profit group of parents and educators that serve the same purpose.  However, there are some differences.  For example, our parent organization does not collect dues.  All parents are automatically members when their children enroll at Lincoln.  Whether you like to fundraise or enjoy helping in a classroom, there is something for everybody with PALS.
