Academic Advising & CCP Information Sessions for grades 7-12.
On Nov. 13, four groups of Lakota students traveled to Columbus to showcase their achievements at the Ohio School Boards Association’s Capital Conference. The Student Achievement Fair at the Capital Conference gives school districts around the state the opportunity to highlight what their students have accomplished at school through unique programming.
Far more than a hundred pounds of cucumbers and a couple pounds of carrots sprouted from the new gardens at Lakota’s four junior schools. In fact, according to 7-12 gifted advisor Ron Henrich, at the root of the philanthropy project led by a subgroup of gifted students for a local food pantry was leadership training.
“For a lot of the students I work with, all their lives they’re told they’re smart and truly exceptional, but are we training them to lead,” challenged Henrich, who leans into an annual project with his seventh-graders across all four junior schools to do just that. “Leadership skills need to be intentionally taught and experienced and once that happens, it’s ingrained."
Over 40 Lakota junior and high school students from Liberty Junior, Ridge Junior, Lakota East & Lakota West earned spots to compete at the national Technology Student Association (TSA) conference this summer in Louisville, Ky. The Lakota and Butler Tech teams, joined by 7,000 students hailing from 48 states and three other countries, placed in seven different national events.
