Keeping the lines of communication open between home and school is extremely important at Lincoln Elementary School. We encourage all parents to take an active role in their child’s education by getting involved in classroom activities and working hand-in-hand with teachers.
There are many ways parents can stay involved in their child’s education. Whether it’s volunteering in the classroom on a regular basis or signing up to help out with a special project once in a while, your child will have a more successful educational experience if you’re actively engaged. And if you can’t make it into the classroom because of work or family commitments, don’t worry! There are many ways you can stay involved from home, including offering homework help and exchanging occasional emails with your child’s teacher. Just asking your child, “What did you do in school today?” is a great way to begin!
We invite parents to consider joining our school’s parent-teacher organization and or/attending regular PTO meetings. Visit this page often to learn about all our latest projects, and contact our office to find out how you can get involved.
School Site Council (SSC)
The school site council (SSC) is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students (at the middle school level) that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the school site council are elected by their peers.
English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC)
The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a group of English Learner parents and community members who advise and assist schools in making important decisions related to services for English Learners. The California Education Code requires an ELAC be formed at schools with more than 20 identified English Learners. Any student's parent or community member can serve on the ELAC. The ELAC executive board is made up of five ELAC members who can only be elected by parents of English Learners. At least three members of the executive board must be parents of English Learners themselves. The chairperson must be a parent of an English Learner in attendance at the school.
The Lincoln Elementary PTO meets on the last Thursday of every month at 5:00 p.m. in the Parent Room. Please join us!
