  • THANK YOU to everyone that made the ORANGE OUT last Friday Night a HUGE SUCCESS! The unbelievable support shown by the entire Eastside Community highlighted just how great our students, parents and community are when supporting amazing causes. Special thanks to Sydney Rader, Nick Plymale and Dalton Strunk for coordinating this great event; to FASTSIGNS owners Barb and Ray Goff for the donation of the Dragonfly Banner and to the kids and families from the Dragonfly Foundation for joining us on such a special night.

  • Students in Dennis Beck's Physical Science classes recently took part in a lab studying force and Newton's Law. Students dropped golf balls from the second floor at East Freshman Campus to test their designs for the upcoming egg drop.

  • We recently received an e-mail from a long time OHSAA Wrestling Official commending the Lakota East wrestlers, coaches and fans for their outstanding sportsmanship and enthusiasm during a recent wrestling match. The official noted the Lakota East coaches are always sportsmanlike and the wrestlers always address the official with respect and handle their wins and losses in a sportsmanlike manner. We always celebrate the outstanding sportsmanship of our student athletes and coaches but this was a great opportunity to hear from folks outside of East how OUSTANDING our wrestlers, wrestling coaches and wrestling families represent our school! CONGRATULATIONS to Head Coach Jim Lehman and the entire coaching staff and wrestlers!
