“The girls cross country team competed in two meets last week. They all continued their streak of dropping time from the beginning of the season. Tuesday, at Valley, Jaenelle Bryant dropped 35 seconds off her previous best time on their course. Thursday, at North, she dropped one minute and 12 seconds off her previous best time on their course and earned her first top 10 medal, placing 9th overall. Great job, ladies! Keep up the hard work.”

  • The Homecoming Dance is two weeks out! Have you thought about who you might bring with? Remember, if they do not attend Lincoln in person, they need to be invited by a Lincoln student, and you need to get a guest form for them from Student Services. Two key things about guests – We do not allow middle school students or those 21 or over to attend high school dances. The guest forms need to be completed and returned back to Student Services by September 29th.
  • You will be nominating your potential Homecoming Court (Seniors Only) in the next few days. When you get the survey form for nominations, please complete the form as soon as possible. The deadline will be Monday by the end of the school day, and it should hit your email by the end of today!
