Lakehoma Elementary was the third Mustang elementary school, which was built in 1978. The principal was Mr. Larry Bruce. Our school secretary was Mrs. Sandy Jantz. Mrs. Vickie Hadlock was our cafeteria manager. Our custodian was Mr. Melton. That year we were home to 428 students:
58 Kindergarten students (Mrs. Knippers, Mrs. Stewart); 89 First Grade students (Mrs. Armstrong, Mrs. Berry, Mrs. Howard, Mrs. Mayo); 72 Second Grade students (Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Owens, Mrs. Smith); 69 Third students (Mrs. Goodman, Mrs. Homan, Mrs. Purdy); 69 Fourth students (Ms. Hull, Mrs. Moen, Mrs. Schwartz); 71 Fifth Grade students (Mrs. Engel, Mrs. Fishburn, Ms. Holmes). The essential teachers were: Mrs. Maynard-Counselor; Ms. Wedman-PE; Ms. St.Cyr-Art; Ms. Burchett-Reading; Mrs. Crowder-Music; Ms. Prather-Library Media Specialist; Mrs. Womack-Learning Lab; Ms. O'Toole-Learning Lab.
For many years, Lakehoma served as a Kindergarten through 5th grade. As the years have changed, the school has grown and developed. Now Lakehoma currently serves students from Kindergarten to 4th grade. We are seeing some second generation students and it is so much fun to see the Lakehoma tradition continue.
We are a Great Expectations Model school. This means that we have been recognized by the character education program, Great Expectations, as having implemented the practices so thoroughly we are a model of their program.
