Music is a safe kind of high.
In addition to classes during the day, the music department has several clubs and after school groups that provide more opportunities for students.
Tri-M Music Honor Society
Tri-M will be new to Lincoln in 2016-2017. It is a chapter of a national organization that is much like National Honor Society but for music students. Tri-M will do a service project, hold small fundraisers for music activities and events, and foster musicianship and leadership in its members.
Tri-M Honor Society members will be selected by Mr. Kays and Ms. Schweitzer and will undergo an induction ceremony in the fall. Students must be enrolled in a music class, and must maintain a B grade average in music classes and a C grade average overall to participate. They must also remain active in the chapter to preserve their membership. Students involved in Tri-M can earn awards and honors for their achievements in the group.
