    • PTO Committees
      Lincoln is a school built around community -- and the best way for us to continually maintain that community is with the help of our families. Volunteering is an investment in our school and there are a ton of different ways to get involved. With everyone lending a hand, the work is minimal and the reward and leadership model for your students will last a lifetime.

      Check out this list of all the possible committees YOUR FAMILY can be a part of. All committees are a group effort, so grab a friend and sign up. We usually fill committee spots in the spring so that we're ready to hit the ground running in the busy fall season. If you see something you'd like to be involved in, please reach out to ptoleopards.volunteer@gmail.com.

      If you have an idea for filling a need at Lincoln and you would like to lead, please reach out to ptoleopards@gmail.com

    • Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students): Ongoing
    • Lincoln's Watch DOGS program is one of the great gems on our volunteer list. Spend the day with your student(s), eat lunch with them, and attend specials while also helping the staff and administration with jobs around school. This is a half-day or full-day commitment -- whichever works for your schedule -- and it is truly the best way to experience Lincoln (and knock out a good chunk of your volunteer hours in 1 day!). Check out available time slots here.
