Laker Junior High students are fortunate to participate in the Five Star Life program, which was developed in part by Laker graduate Seth Maust. This awesome program challenges students to change the way they live by changing the way they think. Students learn the value of respect, responsibility, integrity, sacrifice and courage. The program helps students to become stronger and healthier - on the inside.

Laker Junior High students enjoy field trips each year. The sixth graders and seventh graders embark on a week-long adventure to the Leelenau Outdoor Camp, where they do a variety of outdoor activities that help them bond with their classmates and learn more about themselves. The sixth graders go in the fall and the seventh graders go in the winter. They do many fun hands-on projects while learning valuable life lessons. More information on these camps can be found on the LOC website. For videos that feature Laker students and teachers talking about the LOC trips, click on the sixth and seventh-grade trip pictures.
The eighth graders take a week-long trip to Washington, D.C. in the spring. They are kept very busy during this time, visiting many historical landmarks and learning a lot about the nation’s history. They also visit museums and enjoy live entertainment throughout the city. This is one of the most important trips these students take in their lifetime. It’s a valued Laker tradition that’s been going for decades. For an article about this wonderful experience, click on the eighth-grade trip picture.
While the school day ends just after 3 p.m., that doesn’t mean the school experience ends at Laker Junior High. Throughout the year, students can get involved in a variety of after-school activities. Each one develops skills and confidence that will benefit students for many years to come. Some of the activities involve competition, while others are offered just so students can gain a unique experience.
Every school day, Laker Junior High students have a half-hour class called Seminar. During this time, they can do homework, get assistance from teachers, work on projects, etc. For students who are doing well academically, there are opportunities for fun activities. On most Fridays, seminar time includes an assembly that has students doing team-based activities.
The Laker Parent Association, which is for parents of students in grades 6-12, meets on the third Monday of each month in room 101 of the secondary school. Come out and see what we are planning for Laker students this year!
