Student Fanfare Events:
An Easy Way to Support Our Students

Lakota Local Schools introduced a new series of community fanfare events supporting student achievement during the 2016-17 school year.

The concept is a simple one: Line the school’s entrance and give students high-fives and words of encouragement as they are filing into school, providing students with a visual display of all their supporters during times like testing and the start of a new semester. 
The concept, derived from a first day of school tradition at Hopewell Junior School, brings community and school leaders together to send a message of support to Lakota students. At different times throughout the school year, the district invited community residents and businesses to join school staff for a fanfare-like welcome for students at every Lakota school.  

The student fanfares have proven so popular with students, their families and community members that they are now an annual tradition. Please see the calendar to the right for this year's fanfare events.
