Learning Options High School: A Better Choice for Alternative Education

Structured, Focused and Results-Oriented. Learning Options High School, Lake Orion's alternative education choice, is accepting a limited number of students from both inside and outside the school district for the winter semester 2015, starting January 26.  Learning Options' unique approach combines classroom instruction with online coursework in a small-school setting that fosters communication, a strong-sense of self-worth and accountability.  Visit the school's open house on Jan. 7, 2015, from 6-8 p.m, to meet our students, educators and see our facility.  For more information, contact Learning Options coordinator Drew Towlerton, 248-693-5450.

Dragons Hit the Hardwood before Holidays!

Lake Orion's boys basketball team has started the 2014-15 season a little slow, dropping its first two games to Oxford and Rochester Adams. The Dragons were tied with the Highlanders at the end of regulation, but lost in overtime.  Coach Risi, however, says the team's younger players are starting to play better.  The team does not play again until after the holidays.  Check out the action from the season opener versus the Wildcats.

It expires on June 30, 2019. The team provided the school with scores in teaching and learning impact, leadership capacity and resource utilization that exceeded the national average of all AdvancED accredited schools across the nation. A more detailed report on the team’s findings will be available later this winter.

Spirit of the Holidays: Carpenter and Webber Families Gather 8,500 Food Items for Local Pantries
Recognizing there are people in our communities less fortunate, students and staff at Carpenter and Webber Elementary Schools conducted canned food drives at their schools this month to support the food pantries at Remnant Project Ministries (Community of Christ Church in Lake Orion) and Oxford/Orion FISH, respectively. Combined, the two schools gathered more than 8,500 items for the food pantries, to be distributed to families in need this holiday season. Both of the food pantries accept food and monetary donations throughout the year.

Winter is Here! Time to Talk Weather-Related School Closings

Winter’s icy breath has come early this year.  At least we are not alone, for most of the country is unseasonably cold right now.  Thank you Mother Nature!  Nobody wishes a repeat of last winter, but Superintendent Ginopolis and her team recognize there will probably be at least a few days of missed school due to inclement weather.  The district also knows the decision to open or close the district in such situations has a big impact on families.  Our top priority when making such choices is the safety of our students and staff.  A number of factors are considered when making the decision to close our schools due to the weather conditions.  Click Here
