Angel Tree
Leadership Institute is pleased to offer the annual Angel Tree program.  Lincoln Charter has adopted 20 Angels through the Lincoln County Department of Social Services. Each grade level K-5 will adopt an angel as a grade level, MS students have chosen to adopt an Angel with their Nest.  Grades 9-12 have adopted an Angel per grade level as well.  Click here for information about each Angel and to view their wish list.  All gifts need to be new and unwrapped.  Angel gifts are due no later than December 8th.

Global Ambassadors
There are a few more open spots for the Global Ambassadors Spring Break trip to Iceland.  This trip is in partnership with EF Tours and is designed to be an immersive educational experience. Global travel awakens the senses—and mind—to different cultures and experiences. Revel in the geothermal wonders of Iceland—Blue Lagoon hot springs, volcanic craters and subarctic fauna. From the capital Reykjavik we will travel the popular Golden Circle and see Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area, where students will have the chance to learn about geyser cooking. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where education comes to life!  For more information contact Melissa Lasarsky.
