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

I’m Evan Dang

All boys not in a winter sport who are interested in playing soccer this spring should attend a brief meeting Friday, February 7 at 3:15pm in room 157 (The Athletic Conference Room). We will discuss the remainder of the preseason, getting ready for tryouts, and what to expect for tryouts.

Anyone interested in playing boys golf this season, there will be a 5-10 minute meeting on Monday Feb. 10th in room 144 at 3:15.

Here’s a message from African American Caucus:
(Mason Madden)
Plessy v. Ferguson was a landmark 1896 U.S. Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation under the “separate but equal” doctrine. The case stemmed from an 1892 incident in which African American train passenger Homer Plessy refused to sit in a car for blacks. The Supreme Court ruled that a law that “implies merely a legal distinction” between whites and blacks was not unconstitutional.
It would not be until the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, at the dawn of the civil rights movement, that the majority of the Supreme Court would essentially concur with Harlan’s opinion in Plessy v. Ferguson.

And now, here’s a message from the Counseling Center:

Good morning. This is Judy Tuttle, your school counselor, and today is the first day of National School Counseling Week. Our focus for the week is “Resilience,” the inner strength that helps you overcome the challenges and obstacles you have in life to help you become a better human.

Maya Angelou, the great writer and poet, faced a lot of struggles and traumas during her childhood. She moved from one family to another, where she witnessed and was a victim of violence. But she never gave up pursuing her dreams. She once said, “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
As your school counselor, I’m here to help you work on the skills that will help you become resilient so you can pursue all of your dreams. Come by and talk to me soon, and let’s make today great!

“Hello LINKS Community!This Thursday the Lincoln High Community Learning Center invites STUDENTS, FAMILIES, STAFF, & COMMUNITY MEMBERS to come together as ONE community for a meal and conversation.

Hosts are there to set the space and intention so that everyone who attends discovers meaningful connection that unites us as a community.No two cafe experiences are alike because they are driven by conversation of the individuals who are in the room! We hope that you and your family will be in the room for this engaging evening of food and connection. :The Community LINKS Cafe is this Thursday February 6th from 6-7:30pm in the Lincoln High cafeteria.
