Greetings Lincoln Prep Families!

We hope you are finding the information on the PSO blog useful. Please spread the word to your Lincoln Prep friends to sign up for updates. Only about 25% of Lincoln families are on the update list. This is information that is useful to all of our families.

There will be a general PSO meeting on Wednesday, August 30th after drop-off. For those who are unable to attend morning meetings due to your work schedules, we will have an evening general PSO meeting in early September.

PSO members are still sorting through many interest cards and contacting volunteers to be placed on committees. If you have not been contacted yet, you will be soon. Our goal is to have all committees filled by the August 30th meeting.

Current volunteer needs include lunch volunteers for a couple of openings in August, and almost all of September. If you have not committed to 3 lunch sessions yet this year, there’s no better time to start. Many volunteers are new too, so you won’t be alone in training! Sign up here.

If you are an 8th grade parent with fingerprint clearance and you would like to chaperone the 8th grade field trip to the Musical Instrument Museum on Wednesday, September 6th, view the sign up here.

A couple of events that your families will not want to miss are the Lincoln Prep ice skating social held at AZ ICE Gilbert on Saturday, August 26th from 7pm to 9:30pm, and the Great Hearts Back to School Bash at Chase Field on Sunday, August 26th. Scroll through last week’s blog post for further information on both.

Speaking of events, the Great Hearts Gala is set for September 23rd. It is a fundraiser for teacher professional development. Funds raised at the Gala will help us address the critical need for more high-quality teachers in Arizona and will help provide professional development programs for over 1,000 teachers throughout the Valley. Read more about this very special event here: http://greatheartsgala.greatheartsacademies.org/

Please visit, and tell your friends to visit the PSO table during Curriculum Night, on Thursday, August 24th at 6:30pm. Fill out an interest card, and leave it at the table. Join the PSO with a friend!

Prior to the start of Curriculum Night, there will be a uniform sale at Lincoln Prep at 6pm. If you are still in need of any uniforms, there are plenty available for purchase. Shirts, shorts and pants are $5 and skirts, sweaters and jackets are $15. It’s hot now, but you will need those pants and sweaters before you know it.

The update on carpooling, is that links are yet to be finalized. That information will be posted as soon as it is available. We apologize for the delay. Thank you for your patience.

Have a great week and thank you for stopping back!
