Announcements for 9/15

September 15, 2015

Good morning! Today is Tuesday, September 15, and it is a B Day for everyone.

The Illinois School Safety Drill Act requires school curriculum to include instruction and participation in various security drills in order to reinforce safety procedures for Lincoln Magnet School staff and students. One of the security measures is called a “ Lock Down”. A “ Lock Down” drill will be conducted on September 15, 2015, in order for our students to understand the procedures to be followed in case of an outside threat to our school.

Congratulations to the Leopards Cross Country Team, whose boys and girls
defeated Washington, Grant, and Illinois Central at the meet last night.
Congratulations to Aurora B, who was the first LMS runner to finish in a
season best time of 15:30; also, Shae H ran a personal best time of 19:17.
Please welcome Cort S, who ran his first meet yesterday.

6th Grade Boys Basketball Tryouts will be held on Monday, September 21 and Tuesday, September 22 at Ball Charter School from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Students are expected to attend both tryouts. If there are questions or conflicts, please contact Mr. Hampsey at LMS ahead of time. These are closed tryouts, which means that no one will be permitted inside the gym or Ball Charter School during tryouts. Students will exit the back gym door after tryouts.

7th & 8th Boys Basketball Information: Tryouts will be held in October. Students interested in trying out for the team should make sure that they have a current physical on file prior to tryouts.
