Click to read full article

Every Thursday, the 16 middle school students who are part of the Leadership Club walk to Trinity Elementary and do play-oriented learning activities with both Mrs. Mrs Leimbach's kindergarten class and Mrs. Christiansen's pre-school class (at least the ones who are awake at that time).  The purpose of the Middle School Leadership Club is to develop a mindset of servant leadership in our students. "The Trinity kids are always super excited about our visit!  The teachers really appreciate it to and are eager to accommodate the experience." This program is just a part of Lincoln Lutheran's overall focus on encouraging all our students to participate in servant leadership both now and into the future. All the Middle School students will get the opportunity to serve the greater Lincoln community on December 19th as they participate in our bi-annual Middle School Service Day. The students will be going out to a number of different non-profits to serve for the morning.

Congratulations and a big shout out to the varsity volleyball team as they made it to the championship match of the 2018 Nebraska State volleyball tournament. The team made it an exciting match, as they came out strong and took down #1 seed Wahoo  25-18 in set 1. But then the opponents came back and took sets 2 and 3, 25-20, 25-14. Our  Lincoln Lutheran Warriors did not quit, as they pushed their way back and took down Wahoo in set 4, 25-21.  In the fifth set, LL was down 3-0, yet pushed back and had the score at 7-6. After the Wahoo time out,  they extended their lead 10-6. Our team put up a battle but lost in the 5th set 15-10.  It was a great match to watch, probably the best of the day! Great high-level volleyball!! Very proud of the team, coaches, and fans!! The team ended their season with a 34-4 record. The most in school history! We Are Warriors!!

Jazz Band Tour

Click to read full article

On March 5th, 2018, the Lincoln Lutheran Jazz Band toured the Lutheran schools of Lincoln.  This experience allowed jazz band members to share their musical talents and Warrior pride to elementary students.  While visiting Messiah, Trinity, Faith, and Christ, they were able to interact with many students varying in ages. Fifth graders incorporated their musical talents by talking about their own personal instruments with Lincoln Lutheran students who play in the same section.  Other students got to learn more about instruments. One girl asked how heavy the tuba was and was invited to come up and try to lift the instrument herself. Elementary students got to see what it would be like playing in a high school band and joining the Lincoln Lutheran community. The jazz band grade school tour is a positive experience for both the high school and elementary students.  Christa Grimpo, a freshman, says, “It was so fun to see all the kids enjoying what we were playing and getting excited about the music”.

On March 10, 2018, the Lincoln Lutheran Jazz Band joined the Community Outreach Team for a servant event at the Lancaster Rehab Center.  Sophomore, James Admiraal did most of the organizing for the event.

Lancaster Rehab Center Activities Director, Kelly Zetocha stated, “I would like to thank you and the students for Saturday’s performance.  The residents really enjoyed it! I wanted to share with you some positive feedback. Our receptionist mentioned to me how polite and respectful the students were as they passed through the lobby.  She also said that multiple residents and their family members complimented on not only the performance, but also how interactive and kind the students were. Please thank the band members and volunteers who helped with the craft!  They represented your school well.”
