    PTSA Corner

    December is here, Lincoln friends, and it's time for the PTSA Season of Gratitude and Giving!

    To GIVE to our Lincoln families in need this holiday season, please consider a donation to our Lincoln Family Emergency Fund, which will provide support for several families in need of food, clothing and other necessities during these cold winter months. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please see your options below:

    1. Text LYNXLOVE to 41444 to make a donation
    2. You can also do this online at Lincoln Family and Emergency Support Fund
    3. Purchase a gift card to Safeway, Fred Meyer/QFC or Target and drop off INSIDE the Lincoln High School office. Please do not leave gift cards in the atrium.

    To SHOW YOUR GRATITUDE to our teachers and staff, the PTSA is collecting funds for gifts to ensure each of our 85 staff member receives a holiday treat and card. This will also reduce the number of people coming into the school with items or gifts to drop off. If you would like to contribute to this fund, your options are below:

    1. Text THXLYNX to 41444 and make a donation.
    2. You can also do this online at Holiday Teacher Treats
    3. If you are unable to contribute at this time, please consider mailing or dropping off a holiday card or thank you note in the school atrium. Simply address a card to a teacher or staff member and the office will collect cards in large envelopes. Lincoln PTSA will pay for postage to send cards to staff as needed. If you mail your card to the school, please address ATTN: [teacher or staff name], Lincoln High School, 4400 Interlake Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103. (Please DO NOT drop off gift cards in the atrium.)
