And now here’s a message from Vinyl Club
Attention music lovers:
I would like to let you know about a new after school club we are calling “Vinyl Hour”
This club will meet Wednesdays after school in room 106 from 3:15 to 4:15 and will be hosted by myself, Mr. Goodbrake, and the one and only Mr. Maly
As the name of the club suggests, this club will focus on the appreciation of the music medium of vinyl records.
At our meetings we will of course listen to all kinds of music from blues and jazz to rock and pop music of the ‘50s to the ‘70s, as well as early/modern hip hop.
We will also be discussing how to build and maintain a record collection, as well as how to care for your records and equipment.
This will also be a great chance to simply unwind after the school day and share our love of music and the wonderful, somewhat forgotten pleasure of listening to analog music on old-fashioned vinyl records.
All are invited to vinyl hour after school on Wednesdays from 3:15 to 4:15 in room 106 see you there!!

I’m Grace. And I’m ABO Joe. And we’re from Red Cross Club.
Only 37 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood – less than 10 percent do annually. About one in seven people entering a hospital need blood. Just your donation of one pint of blood can save up to three lives.” that means that if all of the 20 students in your class where to donate blood, as many as 60 lives could be saved ! This Friday, January 17th, Lincoln High will be holding our second blood drive of the year! Your blood will go to the Nebraska Community Blood Bank and will be transported all over the state. Forms to sign up can be found in Mr. Riley’s room (room 138 in band hall) or can be picked up at the attendance office. You must be at least 16 years to sign up.Turn in your forms to a Red Cross member or the office. When you turn in your forms, there will be a sign up sheet in the attendance office which will have a time and period to sign up for when you would like to donate. After your donation, you will get snacks like cookies and juice. Even if you hate needles, you can still be a hero today! So please make the decision to give blood and make a difference in somebody’s life.
