The American Academy Parent Teacher Organization at Lincoln Meadows (AAPTO-LM), a chapter of The Foundation for Douglas County Schools, exists to support the students, faculty, and parents of American Academy – Lincoln Meadows (AA-LM) in achieving academic excellence while encouraging pride in our student, faculty and parent community. This goal is accomplished by raising funds for American Academy – Lincoln Meadows through our fundraising events and on-going collection programs, by giving back to our teachers and staff who work incredibly hard to educate and care for our children, by developing a sense of community in our school with social gatherings, and lastly by giving to those in need through our various outreach programs.
These tasks are overseen by the executive board members of the AAPTO-LM and are distributed across 4 divisions:
Fundraising Events is responsible for planning, organizing, and executing the Fun Run and the Spring Gala. These events are held to raise funds for specific needs at AA-LM that are not able to be funded by the district budget.

Service has a mission to give – to those in need as well as giving back to those who work hard for our children. It is responsible for the Clothing, Food, Toy, and School Supply Drives that go directly to benefit outreach programs that the LM-PTO support. Within our AA-LM community, Service manages the Giving Tree, Teacher/Staff Holiday Fund, monthly Teacher Appreciation programs and Teacher Appreciation Week.
