October/November 2018

The 2018-19 school year is off to a great start. As we approach the end of the first nine weeks, we have successfully transitioned to our new building with the majority of our facility project complete. We recently held parent teacher conferences in all of our buildings. I sincerely hope that all of our parents and guardians had the opportunity to communicate with our teachers and staff. It is so important we work together for the success of our children. We are certainly blessed at Lake Local with parents and a community that are engaged in the education and development of our children. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our staff to discuss any issues that your child may be facing.

This year we are thankful to be able to be using new academic spaces for all of our children. The recently completed Lake Elementary is an incredible learning space. The design of the building is allowing us to deliver instruction in a far more engaging manner and allowing our students to grow in new and exciting ways. The Middle/High School has wonderful learning spaces as well, while the fact that the building is still under construction has presented many challenges. I am thankful to our staff and our students as they navigate the use of the new additions while we combat daily challenges due to the ongoing work.

We are looking forward to moving all of our pre-kindergarten through 1st grade students to the new Lake Primary in January. That building is taking shape and we are extremely pleased with its progress. Lake Primary will be a great space for our children to learn for many years to come.

As we approach the month of November two important holidays occur. The first being Veterans Day. I would like to remind all of our local veterans that the Lake High School Annual Veterans Day Ceremony will take place on Friday, November 9 in the Lake HS Gymnasium. Please contact the Lake Middle/High School office for more information. I hope we all can find time to thank veterans as we live with freedoms like no other country in the world. We are grateful to all of those who have served and to those who continue to serve and defend our freedom and way of life.

The second holiday occurring in November is Thanksgiving. I am certain that Thanksgiving looks different to each of our families. Many are blessed to have a wonderful gathering of family and friends and can share all for which we are thankful. Not all of our families are as fortunate and we should find ways to help those less fortunate in this spirit of Thanksgiving. You will see numerous instances our school continues to teach our children the important lessons of service to others. I hope that you can participate in the many opportunities we will provide in giving to others through this season. Most often it is not a monetary or tangible item of giving, but just your time and compassion to someone in need.

I am often reminded of the tough times we face in our community and our nation with all of the negative news we hear daily. Whether it is the unfortunate havoc a natural storm can bring or another death due to violence or our opioid crisis, there is an abundance of some sad news reported. Despite this backdrop, each day I observe the great efforts of our teachers and staff, along with their commitment to our young people, and this gives me great hope for the future. Our kids are doing great things at Lake Local and we could not be prouder of their efforts and their continued perseverance.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support of the Lake Local schools and our children. They are indeed our most precious resource.

Sincerely,

Kevin Tobin, Superintendent

Go Blue Streaks!
