Principal's Welcome

  •  JM


    Dear Lakeridge Families, 

    It’s hard to believe that 2016 is almost over.  On behalf of all the Lakeridge teachers and staff, I’d like to thank you for all your support in creating a wonderful, collaborative, fun, and safe learning environment for all of our students.  As I walk through the classrooms and visit with students, I am amazed to see how much growth they have made in the few months of the 2016-17 school year.  Students are digging deep into texts, having authentic discussions with their peers, asking each other high level questions, and challenging each other’s thinking in a respectful way.  They are hard working mathematicians and persevering through complex, multi-step story problems.  As writers, they published incredible personal narratives, zooming in to provide interesting details and learning to engage their readers.  I can’t wait to see what your students will do in 2017!
