Building One Community, Together
Lincoln METCO Coordinating Committee (MCC) is a volunteer organization that supports the METCO Program at the Lincoln Public Schools in order to create connections between all children and families in our district.We plan and fund a variety of extra-curricular interactions between Boston and Lincoln students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
Through our partnership with the Lincoln Extended-day Activities Program (LEAP), we offer chaperoned events and field trips including historical tours of Boston, science activities, snow tubing and bowling, to name a few. Additionally, we charter buses so that Boston and Lincoln children can “Stay and Play” after school in each other’s neighborhoods.
The quality and vibrancy of our school community would be much diminished without the 91 children from Boston. Young people of different backgrounds have an opportunity to talk about differences, solve problems together, and develop lasting friendships. These experiences enrich them personally and also help prepare them for our increasingly diverse nation and workplace.
We welcome ideas for strengthening our students’ relationships beyond the school walls. Please contact us with your suggestions or to learn more about the MCC’s work.
