Sprinkles, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and a cherry will be matched with ice cream or sorbet scoops from everyone’s favorite ice cream parlor, The Brown Cow.  Enjoy your dessert while collecting signatures from friends and even teachers in the beloved Lincoln yearbook.

How can you make a difference in your child’s community next year?

The Lincoln PTO is looking for volunteers for the 2014/15 school year. We are fortunate to have a history of dedicated parents with diverse talents and interests on the PTO, and we need your ideas and expertise for next year.   Regardless of your schedule, there are rewarding and time flexible PTO opportunities. Whether you can volunteer for a couple of hours or would like to chair a committee, we would love to have your help.  Many parents initially join the PTO when they are new to the community and find that it’s a great way to make lasting friendships while contributing to their children’s school.  Each year we begin with a new executive board and committee members and we promise you’ll have lots of fun as you help make Lincoln an outstanding place for students, teachers and families. We will have a PTO information table at the Ice Cream Social to help answer any questions. Open PTO Positions for 2014-5:
