Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Lincoln-Way High School District 210 teachers and staff members kicked off the 2015-2016 school year today with a commitment to students during the Opening Day Institute held at Lincoln-Way East.

More than 300 marching band students from Lincoln-Way Central, East, North and West filled the auditorium, playing the National Anthem from the aisles. The colors were presented by Lincoln-Way Air Force Junior ROTC cadets.

Its a favorite tradition among Lincoln-Way staff to start the year off with a performance from all four Lincoln-Way bands, said Superintendent Dr. R. Scott Tingley.

This is the most important year in our history, Tingley said. We will begin this year as one Lincoln-Way. Every student is a Lincoln-Way student. Our drum majors, quarterbacks, team captains, and club leaders are all Lincoln-Way students and we will give them the very best high school experience.

Lincoln-Way 210 Board of Education members were also in attendance and Board President Kevin Molloy offered words of gratitude for the work of teachers and staff to make Lincoln-Way great.

Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Tim Reilly highlighted the districts academic growth. This year marked Lincoln-Ways highest composite ACT scores and graduation rates continue to climb.

We are going to do what we do best and that is giving Lincoln-Way students every academic and social opportunity to succeed, Reilly said.
