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.

PFLC- Parenting and Family Literacy Program

Lincoln Centennial is one of several sites across the DSBN to house a PFLC 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 leader, Margaret White. The PFLC is open each morning from 8:45am until 12:45pm. Be sure to check this out!

Rotary Club St. Catharines

Our school is fortunate to be one of two schools chosen to participate in the Rotary Readers Initiative.  Each week a member from the Rotary Club of St. Catharines comes to our school to read a story to our primary students.  They also spent a little time talking about their job and work in the community.  The Rotary Club has also supported our literacy program by providing picture books and thesauri for our classrooms. 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.

Starbucks Coffee Company: Scott & Niagara, St. Catharines

The Starbucks Coffee Company on Scott & Niagara Street in St. Catharines, Ontario has become one of our sponsors here at Lincoln Centennial. We are grateful for their support and dedication towards the students at Lincoln Centennial.

Therapy Dogs Reading Program

Every Wednesday morning 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 CGN Therapy dogs. These specially trained dogs accept children at eye level and not show dominance, fearfulness, or aggression. This is truly a fabulous day at Lincoln Centennial!

Walmart

The Walmart Store at the Fairview Mall in St. Catharines, Ontario has become one of our sponsors here at the school. We are grateful for their support and dedication towards the students 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.
