We want you...



to congratulate our own Chelsey  K.!
Our (ahem) hats are off to Chelsey, who received honorable mention in a nationwide photo contest hosted by Brightspark, a tour-planning company. This truly is a winning pic, Chelsey - great job! We can't decide what's cooler - the hat or the little white beard.

Lessons from the field...of forensic science

  

Students in Deb Hasselschwert's forensic science class received a special visit from Det. F/Lt. Jason Teddy in early June. Teddy has been with the Michigan State Police for 20 years and he currently works in the special investigation section at the third district headquarters. He oversees detectives at the MSP posts within this district. He talked about forensic science in general and he discussed what is done at the Bridgeport laboratory. He said a majority of what is done in the lab is analyzing narcotics. He discussed employment requirements and opportunities within MSP forensic science. Teddy answered student questions and shared some personal tales from cases he's worked on in the past. He noted he never had a forensic science class in high school. "We didn't have cool classes like this when I went to school," he said.
Lakers has offered a forensic science class for the past three years, Hasselschwert said. 


Class of 2014 - one epic class!
Best wishes to each one of you!

  


The Class of 2014 left its mark - most of the seniors wore sunglasses during the processional and recessional. Pictured are Thad VanTifflin and Mia Smith. The class left its mark in many other ways, as well. For instance, it is the first senior class to be involved with the one-to-one iPad program and the Rachel's Challenge program. It also has the No. 1 ACT composite score in Huron County (20.3) and it is No. 1 in the percentage of students meeting ACT College Readiness Standards in the county (the class took the ACT last year as juniors).
We are very proud of our graduates!

    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 is 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

 


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
