About Helping at School

When you think back to your own childhood (well, at least until you hit middle school!), wasn't it fun to see your parents helping out at school?  These committees offer very flexible schedules, while still allowing you to participate in your child's school day. 

Parent Patrol and Safe Routes

Safe Routes to School

SRTS IL Logo.jpgSafe Routes to School encourages school children to walk or bike to and from school by providing a small token of recognition to students that "walk to school" days. 

Safe Routes addresses growing obesity trends in our children, reduces our carbon footprint and alleviates traffic congestion around our school. Encourage your child to walk or ride their bike to school every day.

Ways to Help

Do you want to get involved at the school but can't commit to a weekly schedule or an organizing role on a committee? 

If you can help out for just one hour one time, once a month or once a week, the volunteer programs highlighted on this page will offer you the opportunity to help out on a schedule that works for YOU!!

No matter how much time you can give, these programs all truly benefit from any time you can provide.  The school appreciates our help, and the kids always look forward to seeing their parents or caregivers during the day! 

Parent Patrol

Parent Patrol gif.gifParent Patrol is a dedicated group of parent volunteers who supervise the four busy corners around our school during drop off and pick up.   Parent Patrollers raise a STOP sign when kids are about to cross, providing a strong visual reminder to drivers that kids are in the intersection.  Doesn't sound like much, right?  But we know that your presence at the corner helps ensure that cars follow the posted traffic rules and that kids cross more safely!!


Please see our Safe Routes map for pedestrian safety. Lincoln Traffic Map


This volunteer position is perfect for someone who can volunteer weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.  A stop sign is provided.
