Superintendent's Message

Kevin Tobin


February / March 2021

I hope that each of you are finding this school year to be fulfilling and successful. We have had many obstacles as we navigated this school year and I believe we have done an admiral job of maintaining focus on our children and their individual needs. I know there are times where things may not be as we wish, but as we continue to forge ahead we seem most often to arrive at the desired destination.

The coming months will have their own challenges as we head into the testing season. Our students will be expected to do their very best on the many state assessments that we are required to administer. I have found over the years that our kids do their best when we collectively support them during this stressful time. We must encourage and help our children understand these tests are a snapshot in time and do not define who they are and what they have accomplished. We will continue to encourage them to do their best! If they can do that, all will be fine.

The remaining months of school will also bring new milestones for our students. Our seniors are just a few short months away from graduating from Lake Middle/High School. This will mean something different to each of them as they begin a new journey after Lake. I find the graduation ceremony of our students to be one of our more rewarding days. I enjoy having the opportunity to share in that special moment and congratulate all of our graduates on a job well done!

We began this school year with so many unknowns as we navigated a return to school in person. I am so grateful to our students, staff, parents and community for all of their efforts in doing what is necessary for us to remain in school, in person. Many of our Lake children have not been able to attend in person for various reasons, and we have been able to connect and allow their education to continue. We are grateful that ALL of our students have the opportunities to learn and find success daily.

Thank you to each of you for your continued support of the Lake Local Schools and our children.
