Teachers get schooled on April Fool’s

0   By TuTu Wah
At Lincoln High, April Fool’s Day is always a festive holiday for both student and teachers. Epically when a teacher is retiring like IB Coordinator John Heineman.
Heineman got pranked by the IB students and other staff members before he even entered the building. His office (Rm 331)  was filled with balloons and toilet paper around his room by the time he got to school on Wednesday. He appreciated the expression of “good, clean fun.”

Need for Make-Up crew just around the corner

By Samantha Stuefer
Mirrors plastered on every wall in a tight space, shoulder to shoulder with other kids there for the same reason as you, having a blast and making art.

By Sean Neary

Out of all the different components of LHS Links’ lives, you might have noticed junior Kira Stahly walking with a dog by her side, always in-sync with her actions and emotions. (Whenever Stahly is running and feeling peppy, the dog is running and peppy also).  “I guess we just have a really close bond, and it’s kind of like someone with a family member or a really close friend.
