Lincoln Community High School will host a FAFSA Completion
Workshop at the school's computer lab on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is an
electronic application that all college-bound students must submit
in order to obtain financial aid. A financial aid professional will
be on hand to help students and parents complete the FAFSA and
answer all questions about financial aid.
Parents may attend the workshop at their convenience or call the
counseling office at LCHS, 217-732-4131, ext. 235, to make an
appointment. All college-bound students and their parents are
welcome and invited to attend.
Swing back into the new year. Swing dance lessons have
returned to the Lincoln Park District as Ethan Tapscott and his
wife, Emilie, return to teach East Coast swing. They will teach a
basic course covering what steps to take, proper technique and how
to apply those aspects to music.
The class will be a one-hour lesson starting at 6 p.m. and will
run for five consecutive weeks, beginning Friday, Feb. 3, and ending
Friday, March 2.
The cost of the class will be $75 for a couple and $40 for a
single. So if you are looking to try something new, or want to brush
up on some previous skills, the Lincoln Park District is your place
to be this February. Preregistration is encouraged, and interested
parties should contact the Lincoln Park District at 732-8770.
