Student Fanfares

Since 2016, the community has gathered with staff and parents to show their support of Lakota students while welcoming them to school. 

The concept is a simple one: Line the school’s entrance and give students high-fives and words of encouragement as they are filing into school, providing students with a visual display of all their supporters during times like testing and the start of a new semester.
