Lincoln Middle School sixth-graders will hold an all-day celebration of learning on Wednesday, June 3, that focuses on issues the students feel passionately about.

The students have been researching topics such as transgender rights, animal rights and gender inequality and more and will present the findings of their research.

The students’ message is: “These topics are important to learn about, they might make you motivated to be an activist, and you should know how to prevent/fix them.”

Lincoln Principal Suellyn Santiago said, “Students self-selected topics of interest, and many speakers from the community have come in to inspire students and add to their research. They have been working so hard and I am extremely impressed with their energy, passion, and leadership on these topics!”
