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.



Powderpuff basketball Feb. 9

Powderpuff basketball for non-basketball players will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 9 in the high school gym. In game 1, juniors will play against the freshmen. In game 2, seniors will play the sophomores. The third game will pit the winners of games 1 and 2 against each other for the championship. Admission is $3. The money will be used for future school projects. Again, this is for people who are not on the jv or varsity basketball teams. Get ready to rumble!
