Lincoln Latin Leadership
Lincoln Latin Leadership (LLL) parent involvement group was started six years ago. Mr. Manny Moreno, anatomy and physiology teacher at Lincoln High School, felt compelled to address the need for more involvement of the parents of Latino students in Lincoln Unified. “By increasing the opportunities for parents to be involved with our schools, we build links among families and strengthen the school culture”, says Moreno.
Lincoln Latin Leadership has grown from it’s original five membership to over 80 members, with ambassadors from every school. The group also receives tremendous support from many community organizations such as Delta College, University of the Pacific, El Concilio, and the Mexican Consulate, to name a few.
The goals of Lincoln Latin Leadership are:
- To build a communication bridge between parents, teachers and the Latino community at large
- To improve the scholastic opportunities and expectations of all Latino students at Lincoln Unified School District
- To create a support system/plan to assist all Latino students
- To identify community resources and programs to be used with Latino students at Lincoln Unified School District
Students and parents are encouraged to attend monthly LLL meetings and find out how to become involved. For more information, please see the contact information below.
