Lake After Prom Committee Football “Yard Sale”

Picture of Football field yard markings

The Lake After Prom Committee is again sponsoring a “Yard Sale” this football season!

There will be 99 yard lines and 2 end zones sold at $20.00 each.  At the five (5) home Varsity Football games, TWO lucky yard line ticket holders will win $50.00 if the play stops and is marked on their yard line at the end of the First and Third Quarters.  If the winning yard is not purchased, the money will rollover to the next quarter; double the winnings!

If you would like to purchase a yard line or yard lines for the 2017 Varsity Football Season please contact Susan Deal at 419-250-8117.

You can select a specific yard line, but they will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.  If you do not want a specific yard line, we will randomly pick the others at our next meeting on 8/17/16.

Please note that the players and football coaches are prohibited from participating in this fundraiser.

If you have any questions, please contact any After Prom “Yard Sale” Committee Member (Lesley Briggs, Susan Deal, Gretchen Fisher, Wendy Matlack or Marcy Hodgson).

We appreciate your support of this fundraiser as it allows us to provide a safe and fun event for our kids.

Lake students will be taking state achievement tests online this spring

Lake Local teachers and administrators are prepping for a change in the state tests for this spring.   The Ohio Department of Education is no longer allowing the district to assess students with the paper and pencil versions of the state achievement tests.   Our teachers and administrators are putting plans in place to assist students in becoming more comfortable with the new testing conditions, and to practice with this type of testing.

Students in grades 3-12 will be tested at some point during the testing window. The testing window begins in March and will be completed by mid-May. The state achievement tests are approximately 90-105 minutes in length, depending on grade level and content area.

Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about these tests. As with any new situation, there will be a learning curve. We do not want students to become upset or anxious because of these changes.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the spring testing, please contact Jodi Takats at jtakats@lakeschools.org.

LHS Fall Play Reindeer Games

Lake High School is getting into the holiday spirit a little early as they prepare for this year’s Fall Play, Reindeer Games. Written and directed by high school teacher Jeff Lake, this appropriate-for-all-ages story recounts the tale of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and how he makes his way onto the team with the rest of Santa’s reindeer. The play will take place November 4 and 5 at 7:00 PM both nights. Tickets are general admission (no reservations accepted) and will be available at the box office half an hour before each show. Tickets are $5 for adults 18-59, and $3 for all students under 18, as well as for seniors over 60. Grey Flyer passes also accepted.

Bond Refinancing to Save Lake Taxpayers over $827,000

Bond Refinancing to Save Lake Taxpayers over $827,000

 

The Lake Local Board of Education is pleased to announce the completion of a bond refinancing that will save the Lake taxpayers an estimated $827,500. The original bonds, sold in 2001 for the construction of the middle school, were scheduled to be fully amortized in December 2025. These original bonds, however, were refinanced in 2007 that netted a total interest cost savings of $1,034,091.

“We’ve now been able to take advantage of this second refinancing, that when added to first, provided a savings of $1,861,591 in total interest costs and shorten the life of the obligation by nearly 2 years.”, according to Treasurer Jeff Carpenter.

Board President Tim Krugh said, “The bond refinancing neither helps, nor hurts, the finances of the school district in any way. All the savings goes back to the taxpayers.” “This”, explains Board member John Ervin, “underscores the Board’s commitment to the community….to be good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars by seeking cost savings whenever and wherever possible.”

2001 Original Bonds – Sold with interest rates ranges of 3.5% to 5.3%

2007 Refinanced Bonds – All sold with 4% interest rates

2016 Refinanced bonds – Average interest rate of 1.8%
