U.S. News and World Report has named Laker High as a bronze medal school. Only 20 percent of schools across the nation were deemed as bronze schools - this is a great honor. It's based on the fact that Laker students performed better than the state average on the 2012-13 Michigan Merit Exam reading and math assessments. The performance of economically disadvantaged students was factored in, as well. Kudos to our hard working, dedicated staff and students for this honor. For more information, visit this website.
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).

Three Laker seniors are the recipients this year of the Gordon W. and Loyse B. Hueschen Science Scholarship. They are Kaitlyn Reinhardt, daughter of Jason and Patti Reinhardt of Pigeon; Cody Voelker, son of Eric and Pauline Voelker of Pigeon; and Kalyn Wurst, daughter of Chris and Shelly Wurst of Bay Port. This prestigious scholarship - only available to Laker High students - provides up to four years of full tuition, fees, room and board to MSU. Students need to be entering a qualifying science program at MSU and need to meet certain academic standards in order to be considered for the scholarship. Congrats to all of these families!
Laker Secondary School has received a Michigan School Wellness Bronze Award for the work it does to promote student wellness every day, including services offered through the Laker Wellness Clinic.
A special ceremony for winning schools took place May 13 at the Michigan State Capitol building, where Lakers received a plaque and a certificate. We are so appreciative of Scheurer Hospital for partnering with us in offering many of the wellness services students receive.

The Michigan-based group The Moxie Strings performed with the new 24-member Laker Strings Club April 22 at two assemblies and an evening concert.
The Laker group includes players from second grade through 12th grade.
The Moxie Strings first came to Lakers earlier this school year to jump start the strings club as part of a $12,578 grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (which paid for The Moxie Strings and local instruction). A $1,200 Michigan Youth Arts Equipment / Supplies grant, along with a gracious local donation from Dr. Mancuso, paid for the violins.
Since then, the Laker strings group has taken off, and the group practices once a week after school under the direction of Samantha Corrion, band director.
During their stay, the Moxie Strings worked with the Laker strings group and within one day, the Laker group learned a new song from The Moxie Strings, which was performed during the assemblies and the concert. The song featured some solo performances from some of our musicians!
The Laker strings group members include Lindsey Steele, Lauren Scaddan, Heidi Keim, Hannah Keim, Savannah Schultz, Rachel Schember, Nicole Hagan, Lydia Esh, Bryn Esh, Cheyanne Kociba, Chris Potter, Andrew Davis, Derek Moreno, Joy Bonke, Madelyn Rusch, Sayge Ackerman, Tia Zhang, Aubrey Dickens, Martha Moreno, Galen Miller, Ellie Esh, Josie Born, Michaela Love and Kim Holzwart.
