RECURRING ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Lincoln Lacrosse Spring Registration Meetings - Informational meetings for the Spring High School Lacrosse season will be held at the Walt Public Library in Lincoln (next to the YMCA South) on Tuesday January 28th or Thursday January 30th, 2014.  The meeting will start at 6:30.  To find out more information visit our web site lincolnlax.net.

LPS high school students are now able to apply online for over 150 scholarships available through the Foundation for LPS at www.foundationforlps.org/ScholarshipApplication.  Scholarships range from $250 to $10,000.  All applications must be submitted online regardless of what the criteria stated in the past.  Students create an application profile and the software will direct them to specific scholarships they may be eligible for.  Multiple copies of required documents will no longer be necessary since these items (i.e. transcripts, letters of recommendations, etc.) can be uploaded to their profile/application(s) once and linked to multiple scholarships.  Applications are due by March 7.
