Irving Middle School

First Lego League Robotics Team Start-Up

We would like to start a competition First Lego League team that will meet after-school at Irving Middle. Students will apply science, technology, engineering, and math principals to FLL challenges. Students will be engaged in robotic build and design, coding for completion of robotic challenges, and research/design skills for project innovation. 

The funds will be used to register for competitions, purchase a Spike Lego Robot and expansion set, competition board build, and challenge mats. Requesting $2,000 plus cost reimbursement.

LPS Athletics & Activities

Shoes & Assistance for LPS Student Athletes 2023-24

Your gifts can help hundreds of students participate in athletics this year in Lincoln Public Schools.

One-quarter of LPS middle school and high school students participate in athletics. Building character, camaraderie and teamwork outside the classroom for thousands of students. With more and more students qualifying for free and reduced lunch, financial barriers to participation are becoming more common. This campaign will provide athletic shoes (and physicals in some cases) to students in need, opening the door to participating in sports while giving students the freedom to feel like every other student on the team.
Requesting $6,000 plus cost reimbursement.

Your gifts are important to give all LPS students the opportunity to succeed -- your gifts to this fund will help 75 students this year if the full amount is raised.

Thank you for your consideration.

Rousseau Elementary

Animal Adaptations and Ecology and Zoo Design and Engineering

Rousseau fifth-grade students have an incredible opportunity coming at the end of their elementary school years. Fifth graders will go to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. For many of our students this will be a first visit to the Omaha zoo and for some a first zoo visit ever. They will be tasked with three engaging and enriching projects to extend learning both in and beyond our classroom!
First, students will select an animal found at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo and analyze the animal's adaptations and the ecology of the animal's natural habitat. They will create a presentation about their animal using Google Slides to share with peers.
Secondly, students will design an animal game board to play, including information from a presentation about adaptations, natural habitat, and their animal's unique characteristics. Students will present their information on Google Slides before other peers play their games to test the peer's knowledge of the animal.
Finally, after learning from a local guest engineer about math skills needed when completing an engineering project, students will design a unique and creative zoo using area, perimeter, and other math and research skills.
We are requesting funds for transportation to Omaha and admission for students to the zoo. This trip builds lasting memories, and it also allows students to observe the animal they researched while experiencing a zoo and analyzing the layout and features of a zoo. Requesting $1,000 plus cost reimbursement.
