The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation.
At Lincoln, the PTA has provided the students with various educational programs. These programs encourage and enrich the education of the students. They occur either during the school day or in after-school activities.
The PTA has helped to make school a more meaningful place for the students and its families.

You may think as a member of the PTA, you just organize carpools and chaperone field trips. But by being a member, you do much more. While making sure they stay quiet in the back seat, your voice is being heard on all the issues that affect your kids. Kids and violence. Kids and TV. And of course, kids and education.
Just by belonging to your local PTA, you’re doing much more than car pooling.
