Student, Lincoln - Way East High School, Class of 2016,
The type of student who should attend Lincoln - Way East should have strong characteristics in Effort, Attitude, Spirit, and Teamwork. This is what EAST stands for. We are expected to have these 4 characteristics because we are a community. Communities help each other, make each other feel welcome, and, most importantly, are nice to each other. We work hard academically and we work hard at keeping the peace and being friendly to each other. That is effort. We have a kind attitude towards the student body and a respectful attitude towards our teachers. We have a positive attitude while doing our work as well. That is attitude. Everywhere we go and in everything we do, we represent East. That is spirit. We help out all the teachers and work with all the students to make East a place the students can call home. That is teamwork. Very special people attend Lincoln - Way East, and every student there, including myself, is proud to say we are a part of this school.
