During the month of March, the Student Leadership Team planned a Read Across Lincoln STEM event to celebrate Read Across America. Each student received their very own copy of The BFG and then read it as a family read-aloud activity at home to promote the love of reading. Many families participated and enjoyed the experience. We wrapped up the activity by going to see The BFG at Towne Cinema this week as an entire school. Thank you to the Lincoln STEM PTO for donating many of the books and to Towne Cinema for making it such a fun experience!

Five students took part in this year’s National German Exam, sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of German. Jack Zoellick (2nd year) and Connor Hawes earned gold medals and a place on the AATG National Honor Roll for scores above the 90th percentile. Jack Zoellick’s score was among the top 1% nationwide, and earned him the right to compete for a scholarship for a three-week study trip to Germany this summer. He has advanced to the national level of competition on the basis of an interview with college German instructors in both German and English, an application and recommendation from his German teacher, Kim Schneider. As a former resident of Germany, Connor Hawes was evaluated in comparison with other students who have had immersion experiences in German. Ava-Lynn Clyde (4th year) and Bradley Vick (2nd year) earned Achievement Awards for above average scores nationwide at their respective levels. Pictured in the back row are Jack Zoellick, Connor Hawes, Bradley Vick and front row are Isabela Kresnak, Ava-Lynn Clyde. Way to go!
