April 7th NSCAS ACT Information (Juniors Only)

Parent Consent:  Watch for an email requesting your permission to have your child’s ACT information to be sent to colleges, universities, and financial programs. If shared, scores from the ACT can be used as part of the college admission process for most colleges and universities, and for scholarship and other financial aid applications. If you do not receive an email; go online to: www.lps.org and enter the code OFYF in the Search Window. This will allow you to sign electronically for parental consent.

Score Replacement: Students with high enough scores can choose to opt-out of NSCAS ACT. Here is the Score Replacement Form. In order to be approved students should score 22 or above in Math, 20 or above in ELA (if they chose not to take the writing, the Reading and English score should total 60) and 23 or above in Science.

DECA 

Lincoln East DECA was recently recognized by DECA, Inc for earning Thrive status in completing DECA’s Global Entrepreneurship Week, Promotion, and Community Service Campaigns. This recognition qualifies two students to attend the International Career Development Conference (ICDC)  in Nashville. 

DECA hopes to qualify more students for ICDC at our State Conference coming up on March 18-19 at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln. Nebraska DECA is currently recruiting judges for the state conference. If you are interested or would like more information please contact Lincoln East DECA advisor Matt Maw at imaw@lps.org. 

We celebrate Elise Benson, Brendan Crimmins, Nathaniel Herpel, Winston Hou, Josh Kohel, Harper Odom, and Caleb Shirk who all placed at our DECA Districts competition!

 

East High School Library

No Fines at the Lincoln City Libraries!

LPS students can check out up to four items from the Lincoln City Libraries and not incur any fines. It’s super simple! Just give the city librarian your student ID number when checking out items. 

Digital Citizenship Key Concepts - Passwords

The LPS Key Concepts for Digital Citizenship emphasize students’ understanding of the importance of password security and knowledge of strategies for developing strong passwords. Parents can help their students with mastering these concepts by asking, “Why is it important to keep your password private?” and “How are you keeping your LPS password secure?” 

Parents should also know they CAN and SHOULD have access to their minor student's password so they can see exactly what their digital learning experience looks like. If you haven’t already, ask your student to share their password with you… better yet, ask them for a tour of the digital tools they use for school.

 

POST PROM

Preparations are already underway for the 36th annual Post Prom event at Lincoln East High School.  Post Prom is an event following the formal dance, designed to provide a SAFE environment for our kids on this special night.  It is a fun and drug free option offering free food, activities, and prizes for all students attending. We invite you to help sponsor this year's Post Prom event: 'Spartan County Fair'.  Here is a LINK to our Go Fund Me page.

We also are asking for your time! We need approximately 150 volunteers to make Post Prom a fun and safe night for about 700 of our students in attendance. Please consider volunteering - it’s fun - and a great way to see the students having a blast at all the activities!

There are several ways and times to volunteer for ‘Spartan County Fair’! You can sign up to volunteer for Post Prom by clicking on this Sign-Up Genius LINK.

Also, according to LPS Board policy, everyone who volunteers will need to sign-up as a level 2 volunteer on the LPS website. This is for all volunteers, staff included. This LPS Volunteer LINK will take you to the level 2 sign-up.

Thank you for your consideration in supporting Lincoln East Students!
