Many good thoughts and words of wisdom were spoken to the graduates by Dr. Weiss, Dr. Bailey, Board President Mr. Anderson, and students: Sarah B., Amy I., Mohammad L., and Nicholas L. Here are some of the special words of the evening:
"Do the right thing even if no one is looking"
"Do not be in a hurry to grow up too fast"
"Lincoln Hall is the best school and we excel in everything we do"
"We've had the best teachers that have prepared us well for high school and in a fun way"
"Curiousity leads us to new paths"
"Be kind; no matter how hard it is, treat others as you would like to be treated"
"We must strive to be successful"
"Always give back to your community"

7th Grade Court Cases
Through the Constitution unit, seventh grade students in humanities and social studies have learned that the Supreme Court is the final court a person can go to appeal a court case decision. As a culmination of the many Common Core standards that the students have learned this year, students have been retrying Supreme court cases. Students were given an actual case that was heard in theSupreme court. While a decision was made, their task was to retry the case to see if the decision would change. Students spent a few weeks identifying, summarizing, explaining, and researching information regarding their case and cases that were similar to their case. Students prepared arguments that included claim, evidence, and warrants, which involved these past law cases. Ultimately, the group presented the court case in front of nine justices (parents and students) that acted as the U.S. Supreme Court. Their task was to convince the justices to rule in their favor and change the outlook of that particular amendment. This was a great learning experience for the students.

Celebrating Memorial Day
Students from the Lincoln Hall Chorale helped celebrate Memorial Day by singing at the Village ceremony on Monday. They performed "Freedom." The ceremony was a great tribute to our veterans.
