Lincoln Parent Staff Group

The staff at Lincoln welcomes parent participation in both daily classroom activities and special school events.

Parents are encouraged to be active and involved in all aspects of the educational program, whether it be refining current school practicies or providing input on their own child’s education.

Our Lincoln Parent Staff Group, or LPSG, provides valuable assistance with many school activities. They meet on the second Thursday of every month.

For information or to volunteer, call 360-313-2300.

WATCH D.O.G.S.

Watch Dog
We are proud to have the WATCH D.O.G.S. program in our school. This is our effort to
provide positive male role models for students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. This is a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into schools across the country. WATCH D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles and male mentors who volunteer at least one day during the school year. We have an amazing group of men here at Lincoln who have embraced our invitation and have made an immediate impact on our school culture. Our WATCH D.O.G.S. visit different classrooms, eat lunch with students, play outside at recess and are a visible male presence in our school.

Lunch Buddy

Lincoln needs lunch buddies! Our program connects community members with students once a week for lunch for the school year. Make a difference in a student’s life by being a positive role model and giving the gift of your time.
