DID YOU KNOW?Top of Page


Lakes has a new addition to the staff. His name is Brix, and he is a therapy dog. Brix is a French bulldog owned by Dr. Toni Johnson, School Psychologist. He has trained since he was 3 months old and passed the Therapy Dogs International test in the fall. He visits Lakes every week and loves our students. He enjoys going into classes and observing students learning. If you see Brix, be sure to say, "Hello," and he will likely greet you back with a kiss.

Lakes Kindergarten students participated in a food drive in lieu of party donations for Halloween.  Teachers provided all needed party supplies while families sent in canned goods to be donated to Gleaner's Food Bank in Livingston County.  Kindergartners collected 210 pounds of food to donate to Gleaner's!  They sorted, counted and packed all foods to be donated.  What a great experience for our young learners!
