Campbell Elementary is one of 29 Nebraska 21st Century Community Learning Centers in Lincoln Public Schools. As a CLC school, Campbell offers a variety of expanded-learning opportunities and community-focused programming through its partnership with Civic Nebraska. Our goal is to use the school as a hub for community services and organization.
As an entire school building Campbell Elementary is a Community Learning Center (CLC). Extended CLC is the portion of our program that guarantees students a spot between 7am-6pm, Monday-Friday, as a safe and enriched space for students to spend the out of school hours. Extended CLC is a low-cost, state-licensed option for families needing the extra hours for drop off and pick up. Students part of Extended CLC participate in rotations before school (gym, computer lab, makerspace, etc.) and are encouraged to choose club opportunities that fit their interests during the after-school hours. As participants in this paid-programming Extended CLC students can attend on PLC Days and certain Non-School Days. Extended CLC costs a flat rate of $55/week/student with options to apply for a Civic Nebraska scholarship or use state subsidy funds. To enroll your student in the Extended CLC program at Campbell Elementary please fill out the paperwork below.
Throughout the year there are FREE after-school clubs between 3:38-4:45pm. These clubs are open to all Campbell students and registration forms will come home on a quarterly basis in Thursday folders. Students will preference their club choices and could participate in up to 3-4 clubs per week at no cost to the family. Clubs will be cancelled on PLC Days, Non-School Days, and Parent/Teacher Conference Days. These clubs are run by CLC Site Leaders and community partners.
The Campbell CLC Summer Program runs between the months of June and July. Breakfast and lunch are provided at no additional cost during program hours and off-site field trips are a part of the weekly rate and are also no extra cost to families.
The cost of the program is $55 per student/per week and there are no part-time or am/pm only options, it is a flat rate of $55. Civic Nebraska is committed to working with families to ensure that all students are given an opportunity to participate in programming. Scholarships are available as needed and the state Child Care Subsidy is accepted. Please communicate the needs of your family with the Civic Nebraska accountant and the SCC; it is always our goal to partner and do what is best for families.
Any student not a part of Extended CLC, is welcome to attend a Non-School Day at the cost of $25/student/day.
Parents can pay here via PayPal, in cash or check, or by making other arrangements with the Civic Nebraska accountant. Invoices are sent monthly via a printed copy on-site, email, or mail.
Getting Ahead: In partnership with the Food Bank of Lincoln and Collective Impact Lincoln, the Campbell CLC offers a parent education course called Getting Ahead in a Just Getting By World. This 10-module course allows parents to focus on personal goal-setting and community assessment. Childcare, dinner, and a stipend are provided as a way for the adult participating to come full engaged and in a mental space to learn, reflect, and create a future story.
Family Literacy: Family Literacy is a partner program operated and hosted by Lincoln Public Schools. Family Literacy allows for English-language-learning parents to meet daily and acclimate to life in the United States. Two sections of this course are offered every day at Campbell (a morning and afternoon session) and childcare is provided. Parents in Family Literacy also participate in PACT time (Parent And Child Together time), where they come alongside their student’s learning in the Campbell classroom.
For questions about Family Literacy please contact Ms. Leesa Kraeger at email@example.com
It is the goal of the Campbell Community Learning Center to engage community partners within the school neighborhood – parents, religious organizations, community agencies, business owners, students, and so on. We aim to do this through a sustaining SNAC (School Neighborhood Advisory Committee) group. This group is focused on providing a space and a means to keep the Campbell school community thriving through conversations and collaborative efforts.
Campbell SNAC meetings will coordinate with PTO. Child care and pizza are provided. Twice a year, a collaborative larger body called the North Central Lincoln Community Council will meet and this will include the CLC/SNAC groups at Belmont Elementary, Goodrich Middle School, and North Star High School.
Our Campbell School Community Coordinator is the contact for the Campbell PTO and School Neighborhood Advisory Committee.
The Campbell Community Learning Center braids the missions of Lincoln CLCs, Civic Nebraska, and Lincoln Public Schools to serve students, families, and communities connected to Campbell Elementary.
