Our hearts go out to the family of Mr. Paul Johnston as they struggle with the loss of a very loved man. Mr. Johnston served as an assistant principal at Lakeland High School and as principal at Parkside Elementary. He also spent some time this past school year volunteering at Lakeland Primary. The staff remember him as a compassionate leader, who was tough because he cared. He will be missed by Laker Nation!

Lakeland School Corporation is working hard to offer expanded opportunities in Career and Technical Education through graduation pathways. We are adding a CDA program this Fall . We have partnered with Ivy Tech to make it a dual enrollment program, and Ambassador Enterprises has agreed to cover the tuition costs for any students involved. Students who complete this program will come out certified to work in child care and with college credits! We appreciate the work that Jenna Anderson with Thrive by 5 of LaGrange & Noble Counties has put in to help us make this happen!
