Laker middle school 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.

While the school day ends just after 3 p.m., that doesn’t mean the school experience ends at Laker Middle School. Throughout the year, middle school 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.
In the 2021-22 school year, Laker Junior High is being transformed into Laker Middle School with a more specific focus on the needs of this unique age group. There will be more activities geared for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Stay tuned for the exciting updates!
Laker Middle School 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.
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 on for decades. For an article about this wonderful middle school experience, click on the eighth-grade trip picture below.
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!
