Happy Friday to our Lakeridge Families!
I will be sending home a weekly (instead of monthly) newsletter in order to stay better connected and to keep you more informed. We have settled into the new school year and our students have made new friends, connected with old friends, and are getting down to learning. It’s been exciting to see the hallways fill up with poems, art work, and stories about summer fun!
