Science rocks at Laker High!

  
From working with little cars in physical science class to learn about time, distance and motion (pictured top in Scott  Lebsack's class) to creating precise water clocks in physics class (pictured below in Deb Hasselschwert's class), Laker students are learning about science in the coolest ways possible - hands-on, diving right in, figuring things out, discovering and working with classmates. That's how science is done in the real world and that's how it's done at Lakers - living the lessons, experiencing education.  

Rachel's Legacy, Chain Reaction -
 Renewing the promise for kindness, compassion

  

This year, Laker Secondary School students are being re-inspired to continue the chain reaction started with last year's Rachel's Challenge. During the second week of school, all 6-12th grade students viewed the Rachel's Legacy assembly; the next day, about 100 students and 20 adult volunteers participated in the six-hour intensive training session, Chain Reaction. Both the assembly and the training introduced five new challenges. The Chain Reaction training included a mixture of physical activities and small and large group discussion sessions.
Rachel's Challenge facilitators Todd and Keona kept the action flowing throughout the day. By the end of the Chain Reaction training, students were exhausted (physically and emotionally), but it was a very rewarding experience. They learned more about how many people wear masks and don't share their true selves. They realized the importance of reaching out to one another and showing support rather than pre-judging. They learned they're not alone in their life struggles - oftentimes, other students and adults are facing the same challenges and frustrations. Students enjoyed learning more about one another and they learned more about themselves. 
Kudos to all who took part in Chain Reaction - let's keep the chain strong - all year long! 


A Uniquely Lakers feature   
 Laker HS special education students enjoy annual trip

Each year, high school special education students embark on a spring trip just for them - a trip to a big city where they learn about the history of the U.S., along with learning about themselves. It's a valuable experience for the students and it's an opportunity not many - if any - Michigan high schools offer for their special education students. In 2014, the destination was New York City; in 2013, the group went to Boston. 


 Laker teacher Tim Blakeney explains what inspired him to make the trips an annual event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ae_u9fGUBiw

 


Former Laker teacher Joe Wiley talks about what types of things the students do on the trips and the uniqueness of the trips:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7J5hXtpg78
