Please Note: Lakota Schools will now be using a new email system. Each staff member now has a new email address. New emails (with a few exceptions) begin with the first initial and last name of the person with the ending: @lakotaschools.org. Emails sent to the old addresses will be forwarded to the new email.
Middle school students can improve their academic skills through participation in an After-School Program. This program will begin Monday, January 13 and will run every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday until May 14, when the program ends. Teachers and other classified personnel will be available from 3:00 – 4:15 to provide middle school students with academic support to prepare for the April Ohio Achievement Assessments and to reinforce valuable content standards taught within the classrooms.
Students will be provided with snacks during the After-School Program. Further, a bus will leave Lakota Middle School at 4:15 and drop students off in Bradner at 4:30 at the United Methodist Church and in Risingsun at 4:40 at the First Church of God. Parents are expected to pick their students up at the school at 4:15 or be at one of the two designated drop-off spots at the time the students arrive.
Please contact the middle school office (419-986-6630) if you want your student to participate in the program. Your student may stay one day of the week or all three days. Mr. Tackett, the principal, or Mrs. Beck, the secretary, will be able to answer any questions you may have about the program. Thank you for your continued support!
