Big picture

February 9, 2022

Greetings from Lakeridge Middle School!

We are eager to connect with our incoming sixth grade families and students. This spring affords us numerous opportunities to welcome you, get to know you, help you get to know us, and for all of us to imagine together the adventures and learning that await you and your child in middle school.


This first message launches our connection and begins our planning toward the fall. In the weeks ahead your child’s counselor will visit 5th grade classrooms, you’ll make exciting elective choices, and you’ll hear more about middle school. Later this spring we’ll have a chance for tours of the building and our campus. In May, we’ll host a special session for parents to learn what to expect from middle school featuring presentations by a panel of student experts, some of our caring 6th grade teachers, your child’s amazing counselor, experienced middle school parents, and our administrative team.


We are eager to get to know you and your child and cannot wait to learn together. To launch it all, please watch the videos in this Welcome Playlist. Students who have questions about any of this info can ask Ms. Binder when she visits their 5th grade classrooms this month. Families with questions are welcome to attend one of our optional Q&A sessions with Ms. Binder and Dr. Schultz on February 23rd at either 9:30AM or 6:30PM.


If you’d like to return to any of the segments in the playlist, we've embedded them below this message and here are direct links to each message as well:

  1. Welcome from your principal, Dr. Schultz

  2. Information from your counselor, Ms. Binder

  3. Music program info from our stellar music team

  4. Spanish immersion info from Maestras Pena y Petrides


Welcome to the Lakeridge Middle School community where our mission is to be a nurturing and safe learning community that embraces the uniqueness of middle school and supports everyone as thoughtful, contributing learners and citizens.
