Welcome to Archway Lincoln Parent Service Organization

Latest PSO Updates

Volunteer Clearance through Raptor

If you would like to volunteer on campus for the 21/22 school year, you MUST register online by clicking on this link to fill out and complete the volunteer application. The cost is $5. The enrollment is good from July 1, 2021 through the following June. Each July, you will need to re-register for the following school year if you would like to volunteer on campus. .

Once completed, the Raptor system will respond within 48 hours to let you know if you are cleared to volunteer. All volunteers must be approved through this process, no exceptions. Please note, when selecting our school it will not separate Archway Lincoln and Lincoln Prep; it will clear you for both schools. You may choose multiple campuses if that applies to your family.

Birthday Book Club on January 21st!

On January 21st we will celebrate January birthdays.

Lincoln honors birthdays through the Birthday Book Club instead of in-class birthday celebrations. All students with a January birthday will receive a special treat, but students who have made a donation will also get to put their name on a special sticker in a book that will forever be a part of the library as a remembrance of their special day. Parents are allowed to come witness and share in their child’s Birthday Book Club experience at 2pm even if they are not signed up to volunteer for the event.

To make a donation please visit https://archwaylincolnpso.com/store/. Select “Birthday Book Club” and be sure to enter your child’s name/grade/section.

For more information about Birthday Book Club check out our Birthday Book Club page on the PSO website at https://archwaylincolnpso.com/library-and-birthday-book-club/birthday-book-club/

To sign up to be a volunteer for Birthday Book Club go to https://signup.com/go/znUxUug.
