Jan. 15 Learning Lunch: 'VOICE at LPS: Readiness for Resumes, Rent and Recreation'

When any Lincoln Public Schools employee is asked to describe their mission, a phrase you're likely to hear is, "All means all." LPS wraps its arms around every student and embraces their uniqueness. There's no better example of that than the Vocational Opportunity in Community Experience (VOICE) program, which helps students of transition age, primarily 18-21, gain the necessary knowledge and skills to facilitate a positive transition into adult living after high school. This program is the topic of the next LPS Learning Lunch, "VOICE: Readiness for Resumes, Rent and Recreation," presented Jan. 15 by VOICE Coordinator Tonya Jolley.

Learning Lunches are scheduled for noon in the Board Room at LPS District Office, 5905 O St., open to the public as well as LPS staff. Doors open at 11:45 a.m., program starts at noon, questions and answers to follow. Please bring your own lunch – we’ll provide dessert.

 LPS Learning Lunches offer “Untold Stories of our Schools.” The schedule for the rest of the 2018-19 season:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 26: "Budget Development in LPS," Liz Standish, associate superintendent for Business Affairs at LPS
  • Tuesday, March 19: "Twenty-five Years of Student-Built Houses," Bob Freese, Lincoln Northeast High School teacher
  • Tuesday, April 16: "LPS Student Debate," Mindy Murphy, LPS curriculum specialist for English Language Arts for secondary education
  • Tuesday, May 14: "Aprenda mientras toma su almuerzo con los Mariachis de las Ciudad Estrella! (Learn while you have your lunch with The Star City Mariachi Ensemble)," Lance Nielsen, curriculum specialist for Music at LPS.
