About Us

What We Do
The Lincoln School PTA’s purpose is to foster every child’s potential in pursuit of excellence through engaging our families, community and school resources.

We coordinate and sponsor many in-school and extracurricular activities and events. Volunteers work together to help make these things possible. Our community of teachers, staff, parents, caregivers and students all contribute to Lincoln’s fun, vibrant, learning community. Contact us at lincolnschoolpta@gmail.com or visit us on Facebook and Twitter.
