Volunteering Information

  • We value our community partnerships. It is with this help that we are able to achieve excellence in our school. Volunteers help make Lincoln a more productive and interesting place to learn. Your help with resources and time can be of great assistance whether you work in the classroom, help out from home or work on organizing projects in the office. Volunteers are an integral part of the Lincoln school program.

    Many ways to help ...
    Whether you have one hour a week, or you want to run for PTA President, or to chair a one-time only special project, there are many opportunities to help in the classroom, around the school, or from home. Donating your time to help improve our school environment and quality can be one of the most rewarding experiences you have ever had.

    Classroom Volunteering
    Many Lincoln parents help children in the classrooms, in the library, on field trips, and in other special programs. They tutor students, work with small groups, read stories, and assist with projects. If you wish to participate in your child's education, please contact your child's teacher directly. 

    Yard Duty Supervisor
    Lincoln always needs parents to volunteer for yard duty. Yard duty supervisors are in charge of the playground during recess. The school will pay those who can come weekly, but we always need occasional volunteers to fill in. Contact the school office (408) 252-4798 to sign up. State law requires that all yard duty volunteers must file a Certificate of Tuberculosis Examination with the school office and sign in at the office.

    Valet Supervisor
    Parents supervise student "valets" who assist cars in the morning at the front drop-off zone. The valets open the car doors and help the passenger get out with all their belongings. The valet program helps traffic move more smoothly and keeps kids safe from cars. Contact the school office (408) 252-4798 to sign up. State law requires that all volunteers must file a Certificate of Tuberculosis Examination with the school office.


    PTA Volunteering
    Lincoln's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has a large number of volunteer opportunities to help deliver a quality student experience.  Bookfair, Yearbook, PTA Board members, Walkathon, are just a few of the 'jobs' that are available each year.  Check the PTA web site for more information.

    Note: For our students' health and safety, State Law requires that all volunteers must file a Certificate of Tuberculosis Examination with the school office and have been fingerprinted and cleared.   All volunteers are asked to sign in at the office and wear their volunteer badge.  This helps us recognize who is on our campus, and students identify strangers versus visitors based on the badge.  2-hour parking permits are available in the office.

    Thank you for volunteering here at Lincoln Elementary School.
