Centennial Homecoming Week is Here!
Homecoming week is here! Our student leadership group has been planning since the summer to make this week the most enjoyable time of year for our students. The theme, in honor of our centennial celebration, is Lincoln Through the Decades. There are many ways for students, staff, and families to engage at Lincoln this week.
