LCS Spirit Night at the Charlotte Checkers Game 3.1.19
Please join us for our second annual LCS Spirit Night at the Charlotte Checkers game on 3.1.19!  Our LCS Elementary Chorus will be performing “God Bless America,” and some of our students will be featured in other fun activities during the game. All LCS ticket holders will receive a free Checkers hat!  Tickets are only $16 and can be purchased at GOCHECKERS.COM/LCS.  $5 from each ticket comes right back to Lincoln Charter!   Tickets will be delivered to your email and you can invite friends directly so that you can all get seats together. Please direct any questions to Melissa Peterman.  Go Checkers!

Yearbooks for each level are on sale through Jostens now.  LCS produces three different yearbooks, and direct links to purchase yours are below.
Please note that students in both Lincolnton and Denver share a combined book at each level, so there is no need to differentiate between campuses.  

Yearbook Recognition Ads
Now is the time to start gathering those photos of your “babies” young and old.  In addition to high school seniors, elementary and middle school “graduates” will have the opportunity to be featured in the ads section of their respective yearbooks this year.  Go to Jostens.com to upload pictures, enter your message, choose your layout and pay for your ad.

The final deadline for purchasing ads is February 16.

Yearbook Advertising Opportunity
In addition to senior recognition ads, the yearbook currently has space available for members of our community to showcase their businesses and services. Whether you’re a realtor, stylist, office manager or owner of any other business, our yearbook staff would love to create an ad to showcase what you do.  Contact taylor.p.helms@lincolncharter.org by February 16 for more information.
