Lincoln News for Jan. 18
LINCOLN — For the students at Lincoln Community School (LCS), their journey to Japan has begun. As part of their month-long cultural study, students were treated to a Taiko drumming performance, participated in a Taiko performance and explored various “intro” groups such as origami, robotics and technology, the Japanese language, tea, fans and more.
Students will study in each of these groups then choose which group they would like to become an “expert” in. At the conclusion of their journey will be a celebration of the cultures of Japan on Friday, Feb. 16, highlighting everything they learned throughout their “travels.”
LCS students welcomed back music teacher, Lindsey Dunham and counselor, Regina Robbins from maternity leave. They also welcomed Dylan Sparks, who has joined LCS until April as a student teacher in Devon MacLeod’s classroom.
