Lakota Local Schools is excited to debut the first-ever “Light Up Lakota!” school showcase at Lakota West High School from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11.
The next iteration of Lakota’s former “State of the Schools” tradition, “Light Up Lakota!” will shine the spotlight on the coursework, classroom lessons, and other school and district programs and initiatives that directly support the four pillars of Lakota’s strategic plan: WE are Personalized; WE are Future Ready; WE are Fiscally Responsible; and WE are In This Together.
The event is open to the entire community. Beyond the traditional school showcase that includes a booth for each of Lakota’s 23 schools, feature presentations happening on the event’s mainstage will showcase select programs at every grade level that make up the Lakota experience. Attendees will be able to enjoy the open house format of the evening around the scheduled presentations they wish to hear more about.
“Every single day, our teachers and staff get to see the moments that make their students light up and get excited about learning,” said Lakota's Interim Superintendent Robb Vogelmann. “This is an opportunity for our community to experience the same thing and see firsthand what it looks like and feels like to learn at Lakota. It’s an exciting adaptation of our traditional State of the Schools event that puts more of our students and staff in the spotlight.”
