  • Volunteer Hours over 500 Lakota East Students passed the 500 volunteer hours at the Community Meal Center in Hamilton, a food kitchen serving every Friday! Since last October, 43 volunteers have logged upwards of 570 hours . Congratulations to these Thunderhawks who are taking time to make a difference!
  • Thunderhawk Lives Out Dream On Stage With Cincinnati Pops
    Senior Haley Stevens was invited to sing on stage at Riverbend Music Center with the Cincinnati POPS Symphony Orchestra and Broadway Star Kristin Chenoweth.  Haley and Kristin Chenoweth performed the duet "For Good." It was an amazing experience and a dream come true for Haley since Kristin Chenoweth is her idol. Haley is an active member of the Thunderhawk Choir and Theater Programs!




  • Wrestler Breaks Into National Rankings
    Jon Spaulding, a senior member of the Lakota East Wrestling Team, has moved into the National Rankings coming in at 18th in his weight class. This is a tremendous honor for Jon and is a reflection of his dedication and hard work on the mats.
Start of the School Year - We look forward to welcoming everyone back tomorrow! A few reminders......
1 - The Freshman Campus will open daily at 6:45 am for students. The Main Campus will open daily at 7:00 am for students. Please do not drop off your child prior to that time. All students will report to the Cafeteria/Gymnasium at their respective campus upon arrival to school. Freshman Campus Students will have immediate access to their lockers. Main Campus Students will be released to their lockers at 7:50 am.
2 – Students will receive their “official” schedule tomorrow morning. That copy will include locker numbers and combinations for our Juniors and Seniors.
3 - Expect traffic to be extremely heavy the first few days. Please leave plenty of time to get to school, get into the building and to the opening class on time. Traffic flow diagrams are attached below. For the safety of our students, staff and parents, everyone MUST follow the directions we have communicated. NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE!   East Freshman/Main Campus Traffic Maps 
4 - The buildings will close daily at 3:30 pm. Please make arrangements for your child to have a ride home by 3:30 pm
Schedule Changes - Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate most schedule change requests. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The following are the only reasons schedule changes will be made:
  • Missing a graduation requirement (Seniors)
  • Took a course over the summer and passed
  • Athletes needing 5 solids for eligibility
  • Obvious error on our part (For instance, two English classes)
Office Hours - Offices at both East Freshman/Main Campuses are now open Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Emergency Medical Forms (EMF's) - To ensure the safety of our students a completed Emergency Medical Form (EMF) must be completed and returned for every student prior to the start of the school year. A blank copy of the Emergency Medical Form can be found here. Completed Emergency Medical Forms can be returned at Orientation Sessions, when picking up parking passes or in the Main Office. Please DO NOT return to coaches/directors/athletic trainers. In addition, we encourage you to make copies of the completed form as often times needs arise throughout the year for additional EMF’s and this will prevent you from having to complete the form multiple times. This will allow our staff to begin processing paperwork prior to the start of the school year to assure accurate communication.
