Lakota Junior Honor Society will be conducting the Sleep Country Foster Kids New Toy drive the week of December 9-13. Students will be collecting donations of new toys for King County foster children. There are over 1800 foster children in King County at this time, so this is an important task.
Honor Society students will be collecting first period for grades 6 and 7 and third period for 8th grade
We will deliver the toys to Sleep Country for the kids on Friday the 13th of December.
Making a happier Christmas for local foster kids.
Thanks for your support!
After a week of activity, Lakota students collected 1,603 items for the Federal Way Food Bank! That is a testament to the caring nature of Lakota students and families. Way to go! Thank you for your support.

On Thursday November 14th, Lakota families got a chance to see 21st century learning in action at the Fall Exhibition, a showcase for project-based learning (PBL). Student teams of scientists, mathematicians, web page designers, and videographers shared the results of their research and development activities over the past month during an evening program. With over 70 teams presenting various projects, it was a busy place from 6:00 until 7:30. Community members got to perform consumer product tests to validate the results from previous trials. Others watched formal presentations of websites designed by historical research teams. Families also got to test catapults as design teams explained the math behind the devices. Wandering to another area, visitors were immersed in the study of cells and their
relationships to diseases in plants and animals. Still more were treated to videos created by students as they analyzed literary elements and environmental issues. Audience members weren’t simply spectators, they were asked to complete formal feedback documents that would inform future learning activities. By presenting students with authentic problems framed around rigorous concepts, and a public exhibition, learning is much more engaging and complex, thereby flexing those adolescent brain muscles in ways traditional school can’t match. Look for future exhibitions in the spring as Lakota continues its journey to more compelling learning adventures.
The following students were selected for the 2014 All-State Honor Choir, Orchestra and Band. Out of approximately 10,000 students who auditioned, only a few hundred were selected. They will perform at the Washington Music Educators Conference in Yakima on Feb 15th along side musicians from all across the state under the direction of world class conductors. This is an amazing accomplishment and we are proud these students will represent Lakota.
The students are:
Isabel Strinsky – Choir
Nicholas Kim – Orchestra
Ben Ray – Band
Congratulations Falcon Musicians!
