Lakeville North High School Teachers Come Together for "Amazing Race" Event
Lakeville North High School teachers participated in an "Amazing Race" themed kick-off where they were employees for a day at local Lakeville businesses. Students often ask their teachers why the material they are learning matters. This activity helped teachers find answers to those questions by connecting the skills and qualities they teach to what employers are needing/looking for in employees. Before the teams took off for the day, the Mayor and city officials shared a few words.
Lakeville North High School Principal Kim Budde partnered with local businesses in Lakeville, city administration and the Lakeville Chamber of Commerce to create this fun training.
Ready, Set, Achieve Recap!
Last week Lakeville Area Schools had the annual Ready, Set, Achieve event. Shoutout to everyone who donated funds, supplies and time to make this event happen! More than 780 students received school supplies and backpacks needed to start their year strong. We could not do it without the help of our community. Thank you also to all the students and families who were able to come and make the day so fun!
