Toy Drive

Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                      

This year, the students at Lakota Local Schools are invited to participate in helping other children in the area with Holiday items. We will be working with a program called “Christmas for Every Child”, partnered with “Toys for Tots”, who accepts toy donations for local families in need of help during the Holidays. This is a great opportunity for children to learn the importance of giving back and helping others in need.

If you are interested in having your child participate, we will be running a toy drive from Monday December 2nd – Tuesday December 10th.  If able, please consider donating NEW toys geared to children ages 3 through 12, to this program, to help those who are less fortunate.  Used toys will not be accepted.  Toys can be delivered to the student’s homeroom teacher.

Should you have any questions regarding the toy drive, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Connors, Middle School Counselor, at (419)986-6630, ext. 5106 or by email.

School Messenger for Alerts…


Dear Parents/Guardians of Lakota Local Schools,

We believe it is important to communicate with our families.  One way we do that is with our instant message system. We are using a company called School Messenger.

The phone numbers and emails that will be used initially are the contacts listed in our student information system.  If you would like to be able to change how you are contacted please contact your child’s school office.

Help Us Recycle!

Once again, the Lakota Schools will be collecting markers for recycling as part of the Crayola ColorCycle program.  In the past two years, we as a district have sent in over 7,000 markers to be recycled!  That is 7,000 we have kept out of our landfills!  Our collection drive will run through the end of the school year.  All forms and brands of markers will be accepted – including dry erase, permanent, and highlighters.  Please send in your old markers with your child or drop off at your building’s office.  We will have collection bins located throughout the buildings.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Melissa Renfro at

Thank you for your help!
