Derrick Walton Basketball Camp

Over 100 3rd-8th grade students registered for our 1st Annual Derrick Walton Basketball Camp. During this 3-day camp, featuring boys and girls, newcomers and seasoned players, all participants are trained to develop their basketball skills with a variety of different drills.

Caden Skelton, 5th grade student at Lake Orion Community Schools, wore his special ordered Walton shirt proud. The 53 minute drive from Lake Orion to the Shores would not stop him, or his parents, from camp attendance.

It is a beautiful thing to see Lake Shore basketball players coach and mentor younger, aspiring basketball players alongside Miami Heat’s Derrick Walton Jr.


Bond Updates

Our summer construction wave has produced new and improved schools and grounds. We have completed or broke ground on major infrastructure renovations, such as roofing, windows, HVAC and technology upgrades. New construction projects (Lake Shore High School, Masonic Heights Elementary and North Lake High School, Violet Elementary and Taylor) include sustainability features, helping us maximize life cycles. Thank you, Lake Shore Community, for passing a $35 million Safety, Security, and Technology bond back in 2016.
