    Upcoming Anti-Racism Activity in ELA and Social Studies Classes

    Lincoln High School’s Asian Student Union (ASU) has prepared a student-centered lesson and discussion on the history and impact of Anti-Asian and Pacific Islander racism and violence. Student leaders presented to the LHS staff this week and guided us through a powerful and reflective discussion on this topic and the impact that this violence has had on our own community. This student-created presentation and student-led conversations will be shared through either ELA or Social Studies classes to our entire student body in the coming week.

    Athletics Update

    Our athletic season is off to a great start. We have over 300 students participating this season. Safety remains our highest priority, and we have several safety measures that have been put in place for practices and competition. Among these include making our competitions closed to the public. We understand that this is a disappointment to many of our families and community members, but it’s a key component of our district-wide plan to keep our athletes safe.
    We have begun to live stream select sporting events at Lincoln. Please visit our ASB YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiZiET6faxUxf9tD6bc6CJQ.
