Student Life
Angel Tree
Thank you for helping to spread holiday cheer!  The 20 Angels that were adopted have certainly been blessed by the Lincoln Charter Community.  What a great way to show empathy through service.  The members of Leadership Institute thank you and wish you a Happy Holiday!

Lincoln Charter Mountain Bike Club
Used Bike Drive
As we approach this upcoming holiday season, it would be great to give less fortunate children a Christmas gift of a bicycle. The Mountain Bike Club of Lincoln Charter has partnered with the Denver Fire Department to make that happen.  We will be collecting used bikes to give to the Denver Fire Department to distribute to local children who otherwise would not have a bike. The club will clean and make minor repairs to any bike that needs a little love.  Please contact David Balok to arrange pick-up or if you have any questions.
