Parade of Graduates is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our Seniors and wish them well on their path of the 4E's (Enlistment, Employment, Entrepreneurship, or advanced Education) that they will be following. It helps builds a strong environment of inclusiveness and achievement for students of all backgrounds, inspiring our youngest learners to see these graduates as role models.
Every May, graduating seniors from both Lakota East and Lakota West high schools are invited to parade the hallways at one of Lakota's elementary schools dressed in their caps and gowns. Many of them return to the buildings they once attended. The younger students line the halls, cheering on and celebrating the seniors as they pass and as a parting souvenir, give each senior hand-written letters of advice and encouragement.
More information about sign-ups for the Class of 2023 parade will be available here soon.
