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.
2022-2023 Donors (January-March 2023)
In Their Own Way: Quarterly Spotlight
Jamie Keraka is the parent of a newly appointed freshman, 7th grader, and 1st grader. She has been all hands-on deck and actively supporting TLA since our doors opened in the Fall of 2021. Jamie has been an active participant in the Parent Leadership Council and has helped plan and execute many of our events this year. Jamie's presence has been noted in several ways, including but not limited to supporting the Primary Dance, showering the staff with appreciation during Staff Appreciation Week, and holding down the glitter tattoo table at the End of Year Carnival. We appreciate having a thought partner and action-oriented team member who helps bring joy and gets it done. Thank you, Jamie, for all you have done and will do in the future. Your dedication has made a tremendous impact!

Education has the potential to change a child's path in life. We would like to gratefully acknowledge the generous financial contribution of Quint & Rishy Studer in support of TLA scholars. Why support TLA?
"We all likely agree that every child needs the best education to live a quality life. The challenge is how? How can a child receive an education that provides them the best opportunity to optimize their human potential. It is easy to point out problems, the key is to find and provide solutions. America's schools are desperate for ways to help children achieve educational excellence. TLA is a solution. An educational process that works. Not only for TLA scholars. Those schools that learn from TLA will help their students. Those cities that have the best talent will be the ones that thrive. TLA can and will show the way. Grateful to be part of the solution." ~ Quint Studer
Thank you, Quint & Rishy, for your generosity in investing in our scholars, our children and the future of the Beloit community!
Community Support is an investment. It may involve a financial or a material investment, but most often, it is a personal investment of time and commitment. We would like to take this opportunity to thank a number of different City of Beloit departments that have invested their time in supporting TLA scholars throughout the year. The Beloit Police Department has partnered with us in a variety of ways including support for scholars in both group and individual settings, participation on business panels, hosting job shadow opportunities and through review of the school's safety planning and security systems. Similarly, the Beloit Fire Department has participated in hands-on education with primary scholars during Fire Safety Week activities, provided job shadow opportunities and hosted a Service Learning Day project with our high school scholars. Not to be forgotten, the Department of Public Works participated in Community Helper Week activities this year with our primary scholars by reading a book about city workers and then conducting a hands-on tour of a city truck - an absolute highlight of the activities! Thank you, to each of these departments and the City of Beloit, for the generous investment of your time in supporting scholars in growing into their roles as community members and potential future employees and co-workers.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
