Orion Oaks principal reads all day for BOOK IT! program Orion Oaks principal reads to students

Orion Oaks Elementary experienced a Monday the students will remember for years.

Beginning with principal Drew Towlerton on the school's roof as students arrived -- dressed as a giant Chuck Taylor basketball shoe -- the day eventually connected with every student in the building.

Towlerton accepted the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! program Principal Challenge to read from bell to bell and he made the move creatively, reading everywhere from that roof (with a megaphone) to the lunchroom, recess and even with a few bus drivers on the bus at day's end. But the primary focus was classrooms as Towlerton and a few friends from other district buildings appeard in nearly every class throughout the day, reading age-appropriate books and sharing with other students and their reaidng activities.

The students were thrilled and the message was undeniable: National Young Readers Week was a major success in Lake Orion, thanks to Towlerton and the Orion Oaks community.

Excellence in Transportation is a prestigious award given to Oakland County School bus drivers. This year’s recipients from Lake Orion are Chad Sylvester (pictured, right) and Tim Clouse. Both Chad and Tim have given selflessly of themselves to assist LO Transportation and its’ drivers.

Chad has been a Lake Orion bus driver for five years. He has participated in two bus rodeos, a driving skills course competition. This has included a special-needs rodeo, as well as one for traditional school buses. Both were serious challenges with the many skilled bus drivers. Chad placed ninth in each competition and will participate in the 2017 rodeo. He also is a “Buster” team member who visits Lake Orion Schools to teach students bus safety.

Tim is a retired investment advisor with JP Morgan Chase and Anixter. Lake Orion Schools has been fortunate to have Tim as a bus driver for the past three-and-a-half years. A graduate of LOCS himself, he married his high school sweetheart and felt blessed to have all four of their children graduate from Lake Orion. Tim said that driving for Lake Orion is the best job, less stressful than his previous jobs.

Congratulations Chad and Tim for your excellence in transportation!

Lake Orion successfully hosts Student Council State Conference in Grand Rapids!

Lake Orion's student leadership class set the bar to a new high as host of this year’s Michigan Association of Student Councils State Conference in Grand Rapids earlier this month.  Our students arranged for Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio to be a keynote speaker at the event, which included 2,000-plus high school leadership students from more than 100 schools across the state. This was the first time Coach Dantonio had ever addressed such a large group of teenagers and his message to push through challenges and “win” every day fit perfectly with the crowd, made up of leaders in their schools and communities. He shared his own leadership experiences with the students, stressing the importance of setting goals and the importance of communication. Lake Orion’s leadership class planned the entire weekend event, from establishing the theme “Free to Lead” to selecting the speakers and organizing group exercises and small group presentations. Several LO students also were recognized individually, including Lindsey Hodge, Unsung Hero Award; Madison Stephens, Ryan Kolp, Emma Modock and Jessica Laconis, Award of Excellence; and JP Gurgel, Exceptional Service Project Nominee.

Superintendent forming LO Legislative Advocacy Committee Lake Orion Community Schools

More legislative actions are having an effect on the financing of our schools, as well as  various aspects of our instructional programs. It is important that our legislators learn the effects, both positive and negative, that their decisions are ultimately having on our students. While educators meet and communicate with our legislators, it is important that they hear from all of our stakeholders. I am inviting members of our community to be a part of a Lake Orion Legislative Advocacy Committee.

If you have an interest in participating in this important initiative, we ask that you complete a short survey indicating your interest and level of preferred involvement. The survey will remain open for two weeks (until April 28). Our goal is to have a broad representation of stakeholders; parents, educators and community members. CLICK HERE to access the survey. Thank you in advance for considering to be a member of the LO Legislative Advocacy Committee.
