And now here’s your Native American Heritage Month fact of the day: 

I’m Mia White Bull, and I’m Oglala Lakota.

The Iroquois Confederacy, founded by the Great Peacemaker in 1142, is the oldest living participatory democracy on earth. In 1988, the U.S. Senate paid tribute with a resolution that said, “The confederation of the original 13 colonies into one republic was influenced by the political system developed by the Iroquois Confederacy, as were many of the democratic principles which were incorporated into the Constitution itself.” 

Thanks, from Native American Caucus. 


Lincoln High’s Annual Fundraiser, Hoops 4 Hope, is Friday, November 15th in Johnson Gym at 7 pm. Admission is only $5.


And now here’s an announcement from HOSA

“Sophia: Hi, I’m Sophia.

Ella: and I’m Ella, and we’re here with your HOSA Week daily announcement.

 Sophia: Tuesday is our mental illness awareness day and for that, we are wearing green. Millions of Americans suffer from a mental illness, both directly and indirectly, with many of them being of high school age. One in ten young people have experienced a period of major depression. Along with that, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. 

Ella: However, there are ways to help. Studies show that people with mental health problems get better and many recover completely. Friends and loved ones can make a big difference and be important influences to help someone get the treatment and services they need by reaching out and letting them know you are available to help. So in honor of mental illness awareness, check up on your friends and family and let them know you’re there to help. Thanks for wearing green to show your support today!  

Sophia: Your mental health is important. We all live with stress and anxiety. 

Ella: Did you know that LHS CLC offers Wise Mind Project on Tuesdays after school?  This group provides a space for students to decompress, practice mindfulness skills, learn strategies to regulate emotions and manage stress.

Please join the Wise Mind Project in room 118 on Tuesdays after school to starting building a Wise Mind!  

Sophia: Tomorrow – Wednesday –  HOSA is dedicating to AIDS & STD Awareness. 

 Thursday will be cancer awareness, specifically with Team Jack and Friday HOSA is hosting a Hat Day for Team Jack. For tomorrow show your support by wearing Red for AIDS & STD Awareness.
