Community Partnerships

Lincoln Centennial Public School recognizes the importance of a positive ongoing relationship with our community: neighbours, whether they be our next door neighbours, local businesses or social service clubs and agencies. We thank our partners for their support.

EarlyON Program

Lincoln Centennial is one of several sites across the DSBN to house an EarlyON centre in our building. This is a drop-in centre for families with children 0-4. Families can participate in a variety of activities with other parents, all lead by program leaders Joanne Burtch and Carli Mederios. The EarlyON is open daily!

Rotary Club St. Catharines

Our school is fortunate to have the support of the Rotary Club of St. Catharines. We are also very lucky to have members of the Rotary Club volunteer their time for our daily breakfast program that is available for our students from 8:30am-8:55am. Each week members from the Rotary Club of St. Catharines comes to our school to read a story to our kindergarten students. 

Therapy Dogs Reading Program

Our students have the opportunity to spend time reading to certified therapy dogs and their owners. Since 2011, Lincoln Centennial Public School have been enjoying the program with the Certified Therapy dogs through the Therapy Tails organization. These specially trained dogs accept children at eye level and not show dominance, fearfulness, or aggression. This is truly a fabulous program at Lincoln Centennial!

Niagara Nutrition Partners

Our breakfast and snack programs are run through the Niagara Nutrition Partners, part of Community Care. Many volunteers from the community assist in providing nutritious food for our students.  The Niagara Nutrition Partners are an amazing support for these programs.

Education Foundation of Niagara

The EFN has been very supportive of our school providing additional funds for student trips, purchasing physical education equipment and musical instruments.  This year they are funding to support our Character Education initiative.
