New Initiatives

This is a new committee at Lincoln that will help identify and launch new  parent supported initiatives for the Lincoln Elementary school.  This group is responsible for working with parents and teachers to identify new programs for consideration as well as collect ideas to improve existing programs.  Committee members can also serve as a resource for anyone interested in launching a new program who needs extra support.

 

To kick off this committee we are collecting ideas from parents and teachers.  If you have an idea (or know of a successful program at another school), please submit below and we will add to our list. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The LSPA will meet in September (first LSPA Meeting) to discuss and prioritize potential program ideas.  The goal is to launch at least one pilot program during the 2014-2015 school year. 

 

Thanks for your ideas and please email Alli Gaiko if you are interested in joining the committee.
