Student council is starting off this year with a bang. They already have 38 active mem­bers which is a much larger group than it was last year. “With this bigger group, the students are looking forward to being more involved with both the school and the com­munity,” states Denise Craig, the new student council sponsor for this year. One main thing that the student council members are focus­ing on this year is trying to get other LHS students to come to them with new ideas on how to make Lincoln High even better.

Some community and school service projects that are already being planned for this year include Trick-or-Treat So Tots Can Eat and a Halloween party for special education students.

Also, they are planning on holding a Thanksgiving dinner for ELL students like they did last year. There is also the Lids for Kids event for the Make- A-Wish foundation. Last, but not least, they are planning on doing Bands Against Bullying. There will be more information on what all of these events are later on.

One important project they are doing this year is hosting the District 6 Student Council Convention. This conven­tion involves 250-300 student council students from not just Lancaster County, but other surrounding counties. The student council members are busy trying to recruit a keynote speaker, holding mini breakout sessions, planning meals and service projects for everyone who attends the convention. The one main person that they have in mind for the keynote speaker is Michelle Obama. How amazing would that be?! They do have other speakers in mind just in case she can’t attend the convention.

One last thing that student council is currently working on, is putting plans together for the Homecoming Spirit Week and the Homecoming Dance itself. They are work­ing on plans and decorations for the dance, the theme this year is going to be Candy land.
