Laker Elementary - an Academic State Champ!



Laker Elementary ranks in the Top 5 percent statewide, according to Bridge Magazine (a publication by The Center for Michigan). The school is number 25 out of 653 elementary schools. The ranking is based on state test scores from 2011-13 and on free/reduced lunch figures. In addition, Lakers (as a district) ranks in the top 22 percent statewide (number 112 out of 507 districts).

Lakers to place tech bond proposal on May ballot

The technology bond proposal on the May 5 ballot will raise the same amount of money as the previous technology bond, but for nearly half the millage - .27 mill compared to .48 mill. 
For more information on this proposal, visit "The Laker Wave news blog" page (see the tab above, next to the "Our Schools" tab).
Today's powerful potential.  Tomorrow's top-notch technology. The lifeline to the future is in our hands.

Lakers saving taxpayers money!

 At the February meeting, the board approved a bond refinancing/refunding resolution that’s set to benefit taxpayers in a big way — by saving them about $650,000. Representatives from the Thrun Law Firm presented details on the refinancing, saying “it’s an opportunity to (do away with) old bonds at higher interest rates that ultimately results in lower millage rates for taxpayers.” This does not impact the district's budget. 

Calendar reminder: March 13 - half day (PD day); March 30-April 6 spring break

INFO FOR PARENTS about two-hour delays

On days when there is a two-hour delay, the start times are as follows:
Laker Elementary: 9:42 a.m.
Laker Secondary: 9:50 a.m. 

A TV station typically states the start time  is 10 a.m. This is NOT CORRECT. We apologize for any confusion this has caused parents. We are working to remedy this situation.
