Snacks and more..

O.K. parents of 7th graders, it is your turn to bring in snacks for the teachers this month. Let’s keep them fed, they’ve got a lot of work ahead of them. We also have a few more volunteering opportunities for you: we need more cookies for Fine Arts Night, one more person to help with set up, one more for clean up. Please see the signup here. We also need proctors, a lot of them! This is a HUGE help for our teachers. Please click here, and get signed up. Thank you so much for your assistance, it’s what keeps Lincoln Prep’s community strong!


Upcoming PSO meetings and needs

Hello Lincoln Prep families- I wanted to remind everyone to take a look at my previous blog, “Teacher Appreciation Signup Opportunity.” We still need people to signup to bring food for the monthly Teacher Appreciation lunch, this Wednesday. I also wanted to make you aware of the new entry under the Volunteer tab. I have listed the upcoming volunteer needs for the month of December, and for January, right after we get back from the break.  I also wanted to let you know the dates for our upcoming PSO meetings: Nov. 28th,  January 23rd, February 20th,  March 20th, April 17th, May 15th.

Field Trip Chaperones Needed

Parents of 9th graders in particular, now is your time to shine! Your student is going on a Field Trip THIS THURSDAY. We only have 1 volunteer at this time, and need 3 more. If you have fingerprint clearance, and you’d like to spend some time with your student, and maybe check out their classmates that they’ve been talking about, NOW IS THE TIME. Click here, to get signed up.

Taking care of tummies

Hello parents of 6th graders at Lincoln Prep-

We are asking for donations of snacks and/or classroom supplies for our teachers. We will have a cart that will be in the front office, where you can drop off your donation. In case you are wondering, we have around 35 teachers, but keep in mind, any and all snacks are appreciated. *Currently, our snack need is greater than our supply need.

The teacher’s wish list for classroom supplies is located in the link here. Please click on it, to see what classroom supplies the teachers are wishing for.


Thank you for supporting our teachers, it is greatly appreciated!

We love our teachers!

Hello Lincoln Prep families-

Last year the PSO organized and provided snacks or supplies to our teachers on a monthly basis. The PSO would like to continue this service to help support our teachers. It was well received by the teachers last year.

Here’s how it would work: at the beginning of the month I will send out an email blast. Each grade will be assigned a month contributing snacks and/or something from the teacher’s wish list. For example, tissues, dry erase markers, disinfecting wipes, etc. The link to the teacher’s wish list will be included in the email blast.

This month will be the 6th grade, December will be 7th grade, etc. We will combine the 10th and 11th grades, since the 11th grade class is small.

Look for my email blast in the next day or two.

As always, your support is appreciated.

Go Lightning!


*The PSO currently organizes lunch for the teachers and support staff once a month. In addition to this, we would like to provide snacks or supplies at the beginning of each month.

This week’s happenings

Hello Lincoln Prep families: I am so grateful for the volunteers that have stepped up to assist me with stocking the vending machine. Michelle Brinkman, Ali Mills, Stephanie Niemyjski, and Dee Ulano. Your volunteering is appreciated!

Our Fall Sports Banquet is around the corner, on November 7th, from 5:30-7pm, and we need some help. Please click here, to look at the signup genius and get plugged in. It’s a great way to show your support for our student athletes.

Just a reminder, on Friday, November 9th, from 8:30-10:00 pm, we will be going to Feed My Starving Children, located at 1345 S. Alma School Rd., Mesa, 85210. If you intend on going, you MUST make online reservations. Simply go to, then scroll down towards the bottom of the page, you will see two white colored boxes, click on the one that says  VOLUNTEER, then scroll down towards the bottom of the next page, where you will see the question, “ LOOKING FOR A  SPECIFIC GROUP?”,  under that question is a box, enter in the  code 1499048, then hit SEARCH GROUPS. You will see Melissa Malcom’s name, and Lincoln Prep PSO. Click the JOIN box. Follow the prompts to complete your registration, to ensure your place and that you can be in the school’s group. This would be a great way to teach your student to be grateful. Oftentimes, kids do not know how good they have it, until they participate in something that exposes them to other people in this world.  I hope that you and your family will consider coming to this event, it will be a great way to meet people from the school and to give back to those less fortunate.

The 9th grade field trip is on Thursday, November 15th. They will be going to a couple of different local History museums. Chaperones are needed, click here, to signup.

Our next Student Night Life is on Friday, November 16th, at 6pm. This is a chance for your student to mingle with, and get to know other students, in other grades, that they normally would not get to meet. This is a student led event, with the girls meeting in one place on campus, while the boys meet somewhere else. They do various activities, eat pizza, and get to see some of their teachers wearing jeans! There is no cost, and the students do not have to wear their uniforms.

Our next PSO meeting will be on Wednesday, November 28th, 8am, at The Wildflower Bread Company, located at 75 E. Rivulon Blvd., just north of the 202.  I hope to see you there.

  Have a great weekend and thanks as always for your support! Go Lightning!
