Please Help Lincoln Park High School
With Needed Supplies
Wish List Drive
Now through May 31

Lincoln Park High is a very special school, with a much broader array of programs than most high schools. From its International Baccalaureate programs to musical theatre, from growing sports teams to fantastic orchestras, the arts, sports and fine academics are all there.

But in the public system, it's hard to fund all the needed supplies for such a wide scope. That's why Friends of Lincoln Park High School have worked with the faculty and staff to develop a Wish List of items needed by the school to take it to the next level.

Even if you don't have children at the school, the quality of this school is important to our community, our city - and our property values.

Here is the wish list. Please give generously.
