LPS students and staff observe Patriot Day

Staff and students across Lincoln Public Schools observed Patriot Day on Tuesday through a variety of special events and activities, including:

  • Lux Middle School -  As part of the “One Book, One Lux” tradition, the entire school is reading the novel, "Nine, Ten: A September 11 Story." In conjunction, Lux honored first responders on Tuesday by inviting them to sit and share lunch with students. Lux hosted 32 representatives from the Lincoln Fire Department, Lincoln Police Department, National Guard, Red Cross and Nebraska Emergency Management Association.
  • Culler Middle School - Students paused for a moment of silence during class at 8:46 a.m. in remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001. They also were encouraged to stop by the media center and leave a note about how they would give back to their community.
  • Kahoa Elementary School - Boy Scouts at Kahoa Elementary School presented their color guard on the school’s walking track and led the entire school in the Pledge of Allegiance.
  • Maxey Elementary School - Staff and students gathered around the track behind the school and connected roughly 700 paper links they had created to make a "Patriotic Chain of Kindness."
