Miller and Fuller worked together in Mentor Schools in northern Ohio before coming to Lakota in 2017 and they used the YouTube videos successfully there, said Fuller.
“The videos provide a different format in which to reach our parents, staff and community members to share important information and all of the great things that are happening at Lakota. Videos are a way for our community to hear directly from students and staff while giving them a glimpse into our classrooms, schools and events,” she said.
The videos are available on YouTube by searching “Lakota Local Schools.”
School parents said they appreciate the new way of conveying what’s going on in their children’s schools.
“My initial reaction that is typical of Lakota these days in that they are right on the cutting edge of keeping us tied to what’s going on,” said Lakota school parent Amy Rupp.
“It’s awesome and the time-length is perfect. Me and my husband both enjoy watching them,” said Rupp.
