Silent Auction Committee

The silent auction accounts for almost 20% of the PTO’s annual budget – it’s a very important fundraiser for Lincoln School. This year, it’s being run differently – not in conjunction with Pumpkinfest, but rather sometime in January/February. It’s a great way to support the school and make community connections at the same time. If you are interested in joining and/or chairing the committee, please reach out to Holly Reil (hollycreil@gmail.com) with any questions.

We need your support!

Do you know that with your generous donations to the PTO last year, the PTO was able to provide for lots of enrichment programs across K-8, such as Raz-Kids, Learning A-Z, BrainPop, Morphology workbook, Poetry journals, Math Station/Differentiation support, the 8th grade’s trip, etc.?

As the new school year begins we will need your generous support once again. No donation is too small, and there are so many easy ways to donate, for example:

  • Press the “Donate” button on the right of this homepage to donate via PayPal or with credit cards
  • Send us donations with the white envelopes that have gone home with your kids
  • Drop by our table near the library over the week of September 12 to donate. We take cash, checks and credit cards

And don’t forget… your work place may double your donations by matching!

Multiply your support by gift-matching

Do you know if your work place may have programs that match your generous donations to Lincoln PTO? Gift-matching is one of the most powerful ways to maximize your donation support. To accept Lincoln PTO as an eligible non-profit organization to receive gift-matching, your work place may request certain information. Do let us know via treasurer@lincolnschoolpto.org and we will provide the information that you need.

First Friday Coffee

This year’s first First Friday Coffee is October 7 @ 8-9am.  This will be held at the Brookline Music School – directly across the circle from the main Lincoln entrance.

Come get to know Principal Brian Denitzio and Vice Principal Isabel Gunther.  They will be introducing themselves and sharing their vision for the year, and answering your questions.

Lincoln parents and guardians are encouraged to attend our informative meetings held the first Friday of every month during the school year, from 8:00-9:00am, in the Lincoln school library.

A different topic is presented each month during which Lincoln families ask questions and share ideas and feedback. The presentations are typically given by the Brookline School District administrators, and Lincoln principal, teachers, or specialists.

If you have suggestions for new topics or have questions, ideas, or other feedback, please contact your PTO Co-Chairs at whlpto@gmail.com
