Start them Young- 3rd Graders Talk Post-grad Options

Even when our students are only in elementary school, we here at LPCS are thinking about their journeys beyond our walls after graduation. We encourage them to dream big and plan early, and Lakewood’s College Go! Week was a perfect opportunity for such forward thinking in third grade. 

During this exciting week, third grade explored college options in Indiana and abroad. They even made a video call to Lakewood alum Aspen Pflughoeft (‘19), who is currently studying in South Korea. Aspen inspired our young students by sharing about her experience in college, her time abroad, and her plans for the future. 

Also in September, third grade joined kindergarten and first and second grades for the Walk into My Future event at Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne. Our students participated in a variety of engaging career exploration and skill development stations and began to truly imagine their future.

We can’t wait to see where this third grade class goes after they graduate in 2029!
