Parent Involvement Opportunities
We invite parents to be a part of everyday life at here at Lincoln Elementary School. Involved parents and volunteers are a very special resource. Parents & volunteers are encouraged to help in classrooms and attend school programs, extra-curricular activities, and field trips. Lincoln is a better place because of the committed families we have the privilege of working with!
Becoming a Volunteer
1 ~ In order to become a volunteer in any District 7 school, you must first complete the District Volunteer Application, available in the office and online. Upon clearance of a background check and after completion of required trainings, you will be placed on a list of available volunteers. Chaperones on field trips are considered volunteers and must also follow this process.
Volunteers returning to the service of our district are required to participate in annual training regarding confidentiality, child abuse and sexual misconduct reporting. Training information is located on the district website under Parent/Community Resources.
2 ~ Please fill out a
Lincoln Parent Volunteer Online Application
, located online from our Lincoln webpage (paper copy by request only). This will let us know what areas you are interested in and when you are available.
3 ~ Visit VolunteerSpot, the online tool we use at Lincoln to post events, simplifying the process of scheduling times to volunteer. Click on any link on the website, or go to VolunteerSpot to see what times are available and sign up for what fits in your schedule.
If you would prefer, you are welcome to call, email, or come into the office to schedule a time to volunteer. We welcome any help you are able to offer, and your students love it, too!
