Abraham Lincoln Elementary School WELCOME TO THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR! The PTO would like to welcome all new and returning students and their families to Lincoln!                           The goal of the Lincoln PTO is to provide each child who attends our school with opportunities that will enhance their learning experience and to support our teachers.   We are fortunate to have our wonderful principal, Mr Johnson, and an outstanding team of teachers and staff.  A strong, supportive connection between parents and teachers makes Lincoln a very special place where our children can thrive.  The PTO funds field trips, assemblies, class parties, and many other events  for the students.  Throughout the year you will have many opportunities to help the Lincoln PTO to raise the necessary funds for these activities.                 In this packet you will find important information and materials to get you started.              Here are some ways to support the PTO. 1. Become a member of the PTO for $10 per family 2. Direct Donation...The PTO will glady accept your direct donation of any amount! 3.
