The Agriculture field is ripe with opportunities for students in Food Science, Plant Sciences, Bio-chemical Engineering, Forestry and Land Management, and various aspects of Farm Management and Production Farming. There are more jobs than graduates in most of the programs and this trend is growing, providing a bright future for those who prepare themselves to enter this field.
Also... if you want to clean your closets/garages/attics and make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation, we'd be happy to take your goodies! Drop them off after school on Thursday and you will receive a tax donation form.

The English team, including Ellen Smith, Jamie Cook, Deborah Anders, Shelby Harrell, John Howard, David Walsh, and John Stillson, correctly answered 23 out of 25 questions. The questions all pertained to this year’s theme: An American Generation: 1964 – 1980. The team had to read a collection of literature from that era, including, among others, Paul Zindel’s The Pigman and The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, Fiddler on the Roof, Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” Speech, “Caged Bird” by Maya Angelou, “Cinderella” by Anne Sexton, and “Rain on the Scarecrow” by John Mellencamp. Not only did the team post the highest score in their state class, but they posted a higher score than all other teams in all four classes.
The Science team, including Kyle Barry, Rachel Hartman, Alex Jeffirs, Savannah Mae, Matt Pearson, and Janessa Salazar correctly answered 16 out of 25 questions. They studied scientific issues, including space and underwater exploration and the development of personal computers, that pertained to the same era in history. Congratulations to our future writers and scientists!

Click the link to http://www.refresheverything.com to vote for the 5-Star program at LJHS.
You can learn more about 5-Star at www.fivestarlife.org. This worthwhile program is currently mentoring students at Lincoln.
Here's what it's not ...
a boring, preachy, predictable program focused on what's wrong with kids today
tough love and scare tactics
an after-school quarantine for problem kids
... and what it is
engaging, energizing, interactive events
a face-to-face encounter with your own potential
a way to an alternate reality — one with new purpose and possibilities
a place to build relationships, values, integrity and self-confidence
One-day road trips for fun and inspiration
coaches and volunteers who connect with kids
