You Can Make a Difference
If you’re looking to help out, make some friends, and help enrich our youth, then you’re in the right place. The Abe Lincoln PTA provides many opportunities for parents to get involved. It’s part of our mission to connect with parents. We want you to be involved, get in the school, meet other parents, build a network, share your talents, and deepen relationships. Parent engagement is a key indicator of student success, so let’s make it fun! The more, the merrier! Ready to hear about some options? Let’s start at the top.
First, if you’re not a member, join today. It’s easy and there are many perks.
Volunteer for an Event
You want to help, but don’t want to be in charge? Great, we absolutely need you! Every event needs volunteers to make everything go smoothly. Your help might be needed prior to, during, or after the event and is typically time-bound.
Throughout the year, there are teacher appreciation luncheons, teacher/staff gifts and more. Signups will frequently be rotated to chip in a meal, case of water, or small donation to show our amazing teachers and staff our appreciation.
Chair a Committee (or Co-Chair)
Want to chair or co-chair a committee? With 60+ committees we have opportunities for all parents to help. There are plenty of options, allowing you to match your availability with the time commitment. Typically you will chair with a buddy and have resources from past chairs. Search all committees here
Share Your Talents
Let’s face it, you’ve got skills! Can you tell us a little bit about your talents? We often call upon our parents when a need for a certain expertise arises. Requests vary, but the intent is to give you a quick way to help others who are faced with a PTA task outside their comfort zone – and well within yours!
Volunteer In-School (PAUSED for COVID)
Eager to be involved during the school day? The Library Learning Center has monthly volunteer opportunities and Room Parents coordinate holiday parties.
