The search for Lakota’s next superintendent continues to move forward. The Board of Education contracted with national education recruiting firm Finding Leaders to lead the process.

After reviewing feedback the district received over the past year, and all three sources mirroring one another, Finding Leaders has moved forward to begin the search.

Eight Lakota schools are piloting a new, more unified school-to-home communication tool called ParentSquare. Beginning Monday, April 22 and through the remainder of the school year, ParentSquare will replace the current notification system for sending email, phone and text alerts to families and staff at these schools: Liberty ECS, Cherokee, Endeavor, Union, Liberty Jr., Ridge Jr. and both Lakota East and Lakota West high schools (main campus only). 

For parents and staff at these schools, no action will be required to continue receiving communications, but be on the lookout for an invite to log into your account via OneLogin to customize your communications experience and get the most out of ParentSquare. All other schools will transition to the new platform over the summer and in time for the 2024-2025 school year.

Due to increasing enrollment throughout Lakota Local Schools, especially in grades kindergarten through six, changes have been made to Administrative Guideline 5113, Inter-District Open Enrollment. Lakota Local Schools will no longer offer open enrollment for any non-employee students in these grades.

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

Nearly every first- and second-grader at Wyandot Early Childhood School will have put their own stamp on Wyandot’s first-ever school play when the curtain opens for “The Wizard of Oz” Wednesday night.

“For some of these kids, theater is going to be their main outlet,” said Wyandot first grade teacher Len Martin, whose personal experience as a theater major and performer herself drove her to tackle the milestone project. The mother of a Lakota East theater student, she has also seen firsthand the positive impact of theater.

Oversized red Stanley cup built out of red canned goods in front of a window

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.
