What's New

Coming soon - pictures from the open house and first day of school

A fresh new look!

The hallways and classroom entrances have a more sleek, modern feel to them, thanks to some improvements made during the summer. The improvements were made as part of the ongoing sinking fund project.  Stop by the secondary school and check out the look for yourself!

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.

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 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
