Parents and guardians of currently enrolled students impacted by this decision will be contacted in writing by Lakota’s Welcome Center.

A few Lakota school hallways, cafeterias, classrooms and front offices were home to mounds of canned goods sculpted into true works of art this month.

The sculptures - on display at Lakota East High School, both East and West freshman campuses, and Ridge and Plains junior schools - were the culmination of students’ response to a community-wide challenge put forth by Reach Out Lakota. Called Can Creations, the second annual competition was designed to encourage local youth groups to build and display sculptures out of items needed by the local food pantry. Community voting takes place from March 15-22.
