Inktober 2020 is here!

Not all of us are professional artists but we all like to doodle now and then, even if it might be on the edges of our meeting notes or homework.

Join us for the 2020 INKTOBER Event.

Each day, draw an image in ink or anything else if you don’t have a pen based on that day’s prompt. Do a 5 minute sketch or ink out a full drawing over 4 hours. It is your art, your creativity! Tag us on Twitter @JL_Eagles_PTA and #inktober2020.

Remembering 9/11

In remembrance of the tragedy 19 years ago, the Juarez-Lincoln PTA would like to say thank you to all first responders, wherever you are, active or retired.

Thank you for answering the call. Thank you for risking life and limb to save others in time of need, despite the danger, despite the chaos, despite the pain and suffering. We thank you for your dedication, your commitment, your beliefs, for putting it all on the line so others may live.

We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice of the 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, 8 EMTs, and 1 patrolmen who never came back home that day to their families along with the 2,565 victims in the towers and on the aircrafts.

Thank you.

Our ideas include working with Staff to see if it is a viable option to host online clubs with materials provided by the PTA through donors like you. The clubs may include art club, reading club, science club, writing club, etc. The Scholastic Book Fair has been moved online as of right now with books and items delivered straight to your door.
