LPS Athletics & Activities

Shoes & Assistance for LPS Student Athletes

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

One-third of LPS 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 -- 46 percent of LPS students qualify -- financial barriers to participation are becoming more common. This fund 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 could help 75 students this year.

Thank you for your consideration.

LPS Dance Teams Dance-A-Thon (Lincoln Northeast Star Strutters)


The LPS Dance Teams Dance-A-Thon is back! Throughout the school year and during the summer months, dance teams for Lincoln Public Schools promote school spirit, pride, and community service through entertainment at various activities, including performances at varsity football and basketball games, pep rallies, dance competitions, and other events throughout the community. This summer, five of LPS's dance teams -- Lincoln East Apollonaires, Lincoln North Star Dazzlers, Lincoln Northeast Star Strutters, Lincoln Southeast Shirettes, and Lincoln Southwest Emeralds -- will combine forces to participate in a three-hour dance marathon to fundraise for each team's annual expenses for the year. Your monetary donation will help pay for various items such as dance tops and skirts, poms, jackets, shoes, dance camp, competition fees, and other various expenses that arise as being a part of an LPS dance team. A portion of the funds raised (20%) will also be donated to the Food Bank of Lincoln's Backpack Program, which provided food-filled backpacks to LPS students in need of food over the weekend.

Fundraising will take place July 1-July 24 at 4:00 p.m. If you are interested in supporting any of the dancers or the team as a whole, please click on the "Donate" button on the page. Any donation would be a flat donation, not a per hour donation. You may donate any amount you wish (minimum donation is $10). Your donation can go towards a specific dancer on the team, but you must write the dancer's name in the "in honor of" line. Otherwise, the donation will go towards the entire team. If you wish to donate to more than one dancer on the team, please make separate donations for each dancer, as we cannot split donations among dancers.

This is such a beneficial event. Not only does it help alleviate some of their annual expenses for the season, as well as raise money for an important LPS program, but it allows all the dancers to build camaraderie, gain experience, and showcase talent among one another, building a stronger dance community among the LPS high schools. We thank you in advance for considering this fundraiser!
