Good morning Lincoln High, Welcome to LinksLive! The Lincoln High Morning News Show.

Welcome back from that four-day weekend. We hope you enjoyed the snow day on Friday and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day yesterday.

We had several activities planned last Friday that were canceled or postponed. Check in tomorrow for a complete list of rescheduled events.

Congratulations to all of the LHS students involved in the planning of yesterday’s 25th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Youth Rally and March. This event was months in the planning, and it was one of the biggest crowds ever. Great job student leaders and scholars.

Also thanks to the LHS students and staff who attended the program. Links were well-represented for both the program and the incredibly cold march to the capitol. Keep walking together all year.

8th Grade Open House is TONIGHT at 6:30pm. If you have loved ones or neighbors who are considering coming to LHS next year, please invite them to come see what Lincoln High has to offer.
