Lincoln East held their annual 8th-grade orientation on January 8 in the Lincoln East South gym. Prospective students and their parents gathered for information on what it’s like to be a student here, as well as some entertainment from the spirit squad. The graduating class of 2023 freshmen class is over 650 students. I interviewed two incoming freshmen Emmy Troy and Johnny Liesfeld to see what they think about the jump to high school. I had two very simple questions, what are they most excited for about high school, and what are they most afraid of for high school? Liesfeld said, “I am excited to meet new people, but I am afraid I won’t be able to find any of my classes.” According to the two current eighth graders interviewed, the most commonly asked questions is, “are you nervous?” When next year starts, East High will be closing. This means they will not allow any more students into the school if they are not in their district. The school will have met its capacity. We are expecting somewhere around 2,300 plus students compared to our current 2,200. Our freshmen class has continued to grow every year. What will the graduating class of 2024 look like?
