Annual School and Community Events (2019-2020)
Lincoln Square Summer Nights
Friends of Lincoln Square sponsor this family friendly event in Yard B every first Friday beginning at 5 p.m. from June to October. The event has games, food, booths with fun activities and information, prizes, and a raffle. The Golden Dragon Project has a table at the event in the fall. This year the GDP will have a table with activities and literature for the August, September, and October Lincoln Square Friday Nights. We are always in need of parent volunteers to help staff the table, run the games or assist with other activities. Parents who are bilingual in Chinese and English or Chinese and Arabic are highly encouraged to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering, please speak to Tina in the Parent Center for more information.
