Message from our Principal:

Dear Rocket Families,

The 2018-2019 school year is off and running. Students are transitioning well to the new school year and in many ways. This fall we welcome approximately 445 new Freshmen to our Rocket Family. The energy in these early weeks has been invigorating and I look forward to the coming months and the opportunities that lie before us as we continue to be: Respectful, Inclusive, Safe and Engaged. #Rockets R.I.S.E.

In addition to a new Freshmen class, we are welcoming 35 new teachers and staff members this year. Additionally, I would like to introduce you to three new administrators:

  • Dr. Darla Berks, Associate Principal
  • Mr. Ben Haney, Instructional Coordinator/PBiS Coordinator
  • Mrs. Susan Lowe, Assistant Special Educational Coordinator

Dr. Berks, Mr. Haney and Mrs. Lowe help round out an administrative team with whom I am very lucky to work with each day.

I sense a lot of positive energy and I am excited to watch and help support students as they continue to set goals for themselves and then work to achieve those goals. For some, this year will represent a successful path much like previous years. For others, this year will be an opportunity for new beginnings. Regardless of where students are when they enter through our doors each day, our dedicated staff is committed to building relationships and helping students succeed. It’s going to be a great year!

LNE Mission Statement: Lincoln Northeast High School is dedicated to educating all students by emphasizing positive relationships, high academic expectations and respect for diversity.
