Lake Local Schools
Mission: Educating generations, serving our community
Superintendent's Message
 
Moving Forward Together at Lake 
 
As we prepare for another great year at Lake Local, there is much to be excited about!

We will soon be completing the smooth rollout of laptop computers to students in grades 7-12, this is one example of how we are following through on our 2015 bond issue pledge to provide 21st technology to our students.

As a preliminary step to getting their laptops, we introduced an online system for Lake families to provide necessary back-to-school information to us. We appreciate cooperation we’ve received from our parents in using this new system – it has allowed us to deliver laptops to students much more efficiently and smoothly.

Our new grades 2-6 and 7-12 school buildings are also well underway and taking shape before our eyes from week to week. Meanwhile, the transformation of Uniontown Elementary into a PreK-1 building has begun, with initial site prep work now completed.

Our construction partners, Hammond Construction and SoL Harris Day Architects, and Facility Project Manager John McAllister have done an impressive job overseeing the ongoing construction and design requirements involved with these massive projects. Currently construction at each location is proceeding on time and within budget. When done, our three buildings will promote student centered learning, flexible learning spaces, and continued integration of technology.

For the second consecutive year we are enjoying a unique collaboration with corporate neighbors located minutes away from our high school campus. Goodyear’s Airship Operations, at Wingfoot Lake, are again providing some of our best high school STEM students incredible learning opportunities. This year students observed Goodyear’s newest blimp (still under construction), saw a second blimp fly overhead, and talked with a blimp pilot.

Lake students also received training to create messaging for the blimp’s electronic sign, and are considering creating a scale model of a blimp using Zeppelin drawings.  We thank Goodyear for this opportunity, and welcome more ways to use our community as a classroom.

We also learned for the second consecutive year that one of our staff was selected as Teacher of the Year for District 8 by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).

Congratulations to Lake Middle School’s Intervention Specialist Kiel Gallina, who was chosen for excellence in providing positive relationships, creativity, and enthusiasm, and being a role model while serving his students in special education.  Last year Deb Bordo, our high school vocal music/choir director, received similar District 8 recognition from the ODE.

With your help and support, we will continue to pursue our mission to educate generations and serve our community as we move forward together at Lake.
 
Sincerely,


Kevin T. Tobin
