Principal's Welcome

    Dear Lakeridge Families,

    What a wonderful week at Lakeridge!  We had a Veteran’s Day Assembly today and celebrated family members and all Veterans that have served our country.  Our Boy Scouts led the assembly, our K Kids handed out homemade cards to the Veterans, and our 3rd graders sang patriotic songs.  There is nothing as moving as the sound of children singing – it was wonderful!

    The Character Trait of the Month is Gratitude and I wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of our students, staff, and parents for….

    Showing kindness and compassion to each other
    Celebrating our differences and learning from each other
    Taking responsibility for your actions and choosing your words wisely
    Being positive role models, great citizens, and the kind of people that make us proud to be Lakeridge Lions and Americans!
