Principal's Message

Dear Lakota Families,

As we embark on a new school year, I am filled with anticipation and excitement to welcome each scholar and their families to the Lakota community. Our mission remains steadfast: to create an environment where scholars can learn, thrive, and succeed. It is our commitment to provide rigorous, standards-based, culturally responsive instruction that empowers every scholar to reach their fullest potential. At Lakota, we believe that every scholar deserves to be seen, valued, and heard, and to feel a strong sense of belonging. Our guiding principles of Responsibility, Inclusivity, Safety, and Empathy (RISE) shape our interactions, decisions, and the way we foster a supportive community.

As we set forth into the new school year, guided by our Strategic Plan, we reaffirm our dedication to placing scholars at the heart of all our endeavors. We will elevate their voices, engage in meaningful partnerships, and collectively work towards ensuring a bright future for each scholar. Together, let's embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, knowing that the Lakota Middle School community is here to support, uplift, and inspire.

Here's to an exceptional year of growth, discovery, and achievement!

Warmest regards,

Jessica Buchan
Principal, Lakota Middle School
