We're Having a Book Fair!

We are working hard to keep kids reading and raise critical funds for our school with our Scholastic Online-Only Book Fair from March 1-14, 2021.

The Fair will connect your kids to notable books and inspiring characters — helping them become lifelong readers. And you’ll love the new option to shop for Book Fair exclusives — directly from the interactive booklist.

the PTO Needs You!

A Note from our Co-Presidents, Pem Hessing and Sarah Severson:

More than ever, we need a strong school community to support our children and teachers. This upcoming school year is going to be about making sure everyone has their needs met, are heard, and feel a sense of belonging. Life in the time of COVID has shown us how these things are so needed. Join us in making this happen by volunteering with the 2021-2022 Lincoln PTO.

Won’t you join us? Email the VPs of Nominations & Volunteers, Laura Sakiyama at and Meghann Moses at by Monday, March 22nd and let us know what role(s) you are interested in. It’s easy—and it really makes a difference!
