    Volunteer Parent Mentor Opportunity
    Dear Kinder/1st grade families,
    Now that you are seasoned veterans of Lincoln Academy, would you be willing to help incoming new families get oriented to the school by being a mentor for the New Family Mentor Program? The time commitment is fairly small but has a huge impact on our new families. You will be assigned a few new families to contact by phone and email, inviting them to school events and offering to answer questions. Please contact Kristi Geisz if you are willing to help at kristi.geisz@gmail.com
