Student Fanfare Events: An Easy Way to Support Our Students

Lakota Local Schools has introduced a new series of community fanfare events supporting student achievement. 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 is inviting community residents and businesses to join school staff for a fanfare-like welcome to school for students.  

The group’s task is a simple one: Line the school’s entrance and give students high-fives and words of encouragement as they’re filing into school. The new tradition aims to provide students with a visual display of all their supporters during times like testing and the start of a new semester, for example.

All are welcome! Click here to sign up and commit to one or more fanfare events.

The complete 2016-2017 student fanfare schedule is as follows. Please check back often for new additions.
