Laker HS is a bronze-medal recipient

U.S. News and World Report has named Laker High as a bronze medal school. Only 20 percent of schools across the nation were deemed as bronze schools - this is a great honor. It's based on the fact that Laker students performed better than the state average on the 2012-13 Michigan Merit Exam reading and math assessments. The performance of economically disadvantaged students was factored in, as well. Kudos to our hard working, dedicated staff and students for this honor. For more information, visit this website.

Mark Weidman hired as Dean of Students

The Laker Board of Education has hired former Laker teacher/coach/athletic director Mark Weidman as the Dean of Students for the secondary school, starting Jan. 4. He will serve in this position until the end of the school year. He will handle student and staff support duties, including student discipline. "This is a neat opportunity to go back to work at a place where I am familiar with the people and the surroundings," Weidman said. "I am thankful for this opportunity to work with students again, to mentor and guide them. I really enjoy interactions with students and helping them develop and succeed in life." A Laker grad, he taught at Lakers for 31 years and coached a variety of sports during that time. For 2 1/2 years, he served as athletic director. Welcome back, Mr. Weidman!
