LPS showcases after-school activities

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Lincoln Public Schools held an event on Thursday to highlight the after-school activities at its Community Learning Centers.

Organizations set up tables at Lincoln High School to show parents and students what they offer.

“Highlighting the work that our partners are doing in our schools and highlighting and sharing kind of those high-quality experiences that our students are having is just a really great thing,” said Nola Derby-Bennett, director of the Community Learning Centers.

One program showcased was an after-school African drum class that students can enroll in.

And outside, clubs at the high school held a trunk-or-treat event for kids.

“Anytime that we can get, give free activities for families to be involved in, that’s a really big deal,” Derby-Bennett said.
