Community Support
at TLA

K4Kindness Day.jpg

The Lincoln Academy is grateful for the incredible support we receive from individuals, families, and organizations throughout the different corners of our community. Your valuable contributions of time, materials and funds make it possible for scholars to explore and enrich their learning, development and aspirations through field trips, technology, equipment, incentives, participation in school events and extracurricular activities. Your support for these activities and resources - things beyond the basics - enhances learning and outcomes for scholars.

We extend our thanks to everyone who, in their own way, has contributed to supporting scholars in preparing to achieve their dreams and live a choice-filled life.

In Their Own Way: Quarterly Spotlight

DonyaBundy phot.jpeg

We have many awesome volunteers who continue to give their time to make The Lincoln Academy successful. This quarter we would like to put the spotlight on Donya Bundy! Donya has been a parent volunteer from the start. She has assisted with special events such as Seal-A-Smile, picture day, and TLA’s end-of-year Carnival, just to name a few. Donya always goes above and beyond and has built many positive relationships with our scholars and staff. She finds joy in all that she does. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, Donya! We honestly could not do it without you.

If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about volunteering at TLA, please complete the volunteer application and we will reach out to you.

We would like to gratefully acknowledge a recent donation from Jim and Nancy Packard. Their generous contribution provided operational support for things like equipment, field trips, curriculum, scholar incentives and staff professional development. Thank you for investing in preparing scholars to achieve their dreams and live a choice-filled life!

Home Depot donated three different project kits, allowing our high school construction and manufacturing scholars to collaborate with every scholar in three different grade levels. The kits each connected to a monthly career focus and/or a unit the younger scholar had just finished learning about. Third graders constructed a toolbox during manufacturing month and, having just learned about stars, the 1st graders made a constellation viewer during STEAM month. Next up, an amphibious vehicle project! Thank you, Home Depot-Janesville, for your donation!

If you are a business, organization or personally interested in supporting  or participating in TLA's career exploration activities, please contact Laura Benisch, Director of Career Planning and Partnerships, at

There Are Many Ways to Support TLA!

Support Us Through Purposity!

At TLA, we’ve been working hard to ensure all of our scholars have the resources they need to be successful at school (and beyond).  We are excited to announce our partnership with the Purposity app!  Purposity (a blend of “Purpose” + “Generosity”) allows us to share out anonymous scholar needs to members of our school and larger community who want to help and be able to provide support through just a few clicks on their phone. Please help us reach our goal of 200 followers in order to be able to post more needs! To get started, download the Purposity app and be sure to follow The Lincoln Academy!  If you have any questions about the app or supporting scholar needs, please contact Mrs. Nitz, School Social Worker, at (608) 690-5158 or
