2020-2021 is, without a doubt, a new school year. A new way to start and navigate high school, which is beyond anything we could imagine. A new way of learning that we are still getting our heads around.
One thing though isn't new — the need to provide support to everyone in the Lincoln community. Friends of Lincoln is here to enrich our students' education. In previous years it has meant:
Helping support athletics, theater, choir and specific teacher requests
Funding teaching positions threatened by budget cuts.
Supporting families in need - of which we have 300 historically underserved at Lincoln. As well as one in ten of our students facing food insecurity.
We are here to help them all. This year, online learning and making sure there is equity for all students will be our focus, without a doubt.
Friends of Lincoln’s (FoL) Board of Directors and committee members are a mix of volunteer parents and alumni who support fundraising efforts, community events and school-related activities inclusive of clubs, athletics and in-school needs. FoL also leads the co-ordination of events like the Flock Party and teacher appreciation week, Back to School night and Parent Teacher Conferences. FoL combines the roles and support activities previously delivered by the Lincoln Boosters, PTSO and Foundation into one unified support system for the broader LHS community.
Everything you need to know that your student will probably never mention. We have tried to think of everything you have on your mind. Everything we would have discussed at a welcome evening - which we cannot hold. Or that you would have found out at the Principal's Coffee - which we cannot hold.
