Good morning Lincoln High! Welcome to LINKS LIVE! The Lincoln High Morning News Show!

I’m Liam Ducey and I’m Jacob Vanderford

The LHS Play Festival is today. As you may have already noticed 10 schools from around the state will be here performing their One Act plays in the Ted Sorensen Theatre. The halls will be full of people in costume hauling pieces of equipment and sets throughout the day. Thank you in advance for your help and support.

There are no after school opportunities today due to the LHS Play Festival and the media center will close at 3:15

“IIG Step Chain invites all students and staff to come support them at their very first performance. This performance is tonight at 7:30pm at Lincoln Northeast High School for their Star Strutter Show. Activity passes and student ID’s will not work due to it being a fundraiser. The admission is $5 per person or $4 per person with a canned or non-perishable food donation to the Food Bank of Lincoln. You are more than welcome to bring more than one donation but the $1 discount only works once. The doors will open at 6:30pm.

You will also get a chance to watch our Cheer team and Pomalinks perform too! IIG looks forward to your support! ”
