The hallways of Lakes High School’s new Success Building were full of curious parents and community members, who took student-led tours of the new facility as part of Lancer Night on Jan. 5. Lakes’ Ignite Mentors led small groups of people through the new building, which features classrooms and laboratories, a gymnasium, cafeteria, pool, student store and administrative offices.
After the tours, a community pep assembly was held in the new gym. Participants were welcomed by school and district leaders, sang the high school’s Fight Song and Alma Mater and were treated to performances by the high school’s cheer staff, dance team, Army JROTC, Jazz Band, Pacific Islander Club and Studio Choir. Students and staff finished the event with a class competition to show off their athletic and academic skills.
The Success Building is part of Phase II construction of the new high school and is the result of the $65 million school construction bond, approved by Lakewood voters in February 2006. Phase III, which is scheduled for completion this fall, includes demolition of the old high school and completion of new athletic fields, tennis courts, bus loops and parking.
