#EASTSIDEPRIDE - Great Things Going On At East!            
  • Lessons aren't contained to our classrooms. Mrs. Coats-Haan took her students outside so they could experience firsthand the Bernoulli Principle

  • As is tradition, ALL speech students shined while completing their introductory one-minute speeches on the first day of class this year. Preparing them for many more trips to the podium this semester!

  • Lakota East Thunderhawk Choirs have been selected to perform at the Walt Disney World Resort for the fifth consecutive time. The Disney staff specifically mentioned not only the quality of the musicianship but also the outstanding respect the students from East show as a reason for their continued acceptance.

  • This past July 4th, Thunderhawk wrestlers qualified for and competed at the Asics Cadet and Junior Freestyle Wrestling Championships. This is the largest and toughest high school tournament in the country.  Almost every state in the country sends its best team.  Daniel Roth went 3-2, Sam Roth went 2-2, Deante Evans went 3-2, and Devon Davenport went 0-2.  All represented East extremely well against elite competition.
Assemblies for College-Bound Seniors - The Student Services staff at Lakota East will meet with all college-bound seniors to begin the college application process and to review the use of Naviance in that process. The meeting dates are September 3, 4, 10, and 11 during the Extra Help bells. Each senior will attend on only one of the four dates listed.

Seniors will report to the Theater during their Extra Help bell. View the list of Extra Help bells and teachers here to see the date that each classroom is assigned to attend.  These meetings are mandatory for all college-bound seniors. Please plan accordingly. The session will take the entire Extra Help bell. Seniors should plan to bring their own technology (laptops, tablets, phones) if they have it available. Seniors will be able to log into Naviance during the presentation. Click here for a full schedule.
Cars for Homecoming - Homecoming Festivities are right around the corner. The Homecoming Football Game is scheduled for Friday, October 10th. We are in need of convertibles for the Senior Homecoming Court Presentation at the football game. If you have a convertible, and wouldn’t mind helping out, please contact Senior Class Advisor Erin Schneider at

Picture Day - Lifetouch will be taking school pictures for Juniors/Seniors and all Sophomores that missed Orientation Night on Monday, September 8th. ALL STUDENTS MUST get their pictures taken for Student ID's. More details to come regarding picture packages.
Transportation Update - After two days, traffic patterns at both campuses are beginning to fall into place. While congestion is still heavy at times, you can lessen the time it takes to deliver or pickup your student by doing the following:
Drop Off
  • Please make sure you pull all the way forward to drop your student off. Not doing so backs traffic up onto adjacent streets and slows everyone down.
  • Avoid slowing things down by keeping book bags, instruments, etc in the car instead of the trunk. 
  • Drive slow! There are students crossing lanes of traffic as they enter the building
  • NO DROP OFFS take place in PARKING LOTS! PLEASE! We have too many new student drivers and folks walking into the building to risk adding more cars to the mix.

Pick Up

  • Best advice – plan to pick your teen up 20 minutes after the end of the school day. For Freshmen, that is around 2:45 and for Main Campus, that is around 3:00. Traffic has completely subsided and you can get in and out within minutes.     

Please remind your Main Campus Student they must report to the cafeteria/gymnasium upon arriving to school in the morning. The academic wing of the building is not accessible until fifteen minutes prior to the start of the school day. We appreciate your support with assuring our teachers have adequate planning time in the morning.
If your Senior has Flex Schedule and needs to come back onto the Main Campus near the end of the day, they need to do so no later than 2:40 pm (dismissal time). Between 2:40 pm and 3:00 pm, we will not allow cars to enter the Main Campus parking lots due to the extremely heavy traffic exiting our building.

Medication Reminder - Please don’t send ANY medications into school with your student. The ONLY medications that students are permitted to carry into/around school with them are: Insulin PUMP, Epi-Pen/Auvi-Q, inhalers and cough drops. These medications are required to have a medication permit on file with the school’s nurse prior to carrying them. 
ALL medications, both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) are required to have a medication permit on file with the school’s nurse for administration; this includes aspirin, Tylenol/acetaminophen, Motrin/Advil/Ibuprofen, and Aleve/naproxen sodium. If your student is caught carrying medication of any kind on them (whether there is a permit on file or not), outside of the above mentioned ones, there are school ramifications and/or legal ramifications. School ramifications can be found in the Student Code of Conduct under “Level III Offenses: Rule 21”.
