5th Graders Visit French Restaurant
Fifth graders were treated to a culinary experience during a field trip to French restaurant Bistro L'hermitage in Occoquan. The students enjoyed a choice of desserts, which they ordered in French. Merci beaucoup to the LRES PTO for helping to defray the cost of this special experience.The students had a wonderful time!
Character Counts Day
Recently, we celebrated LRES Character Counts Day. Students and staff dressed in different colors representing the six pillars: Citizenship, Respect, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Fairness, and Caring. We were fortunate to have Mrs. Matory as our guest speaker. She gave a wonderful presentation on the six pillars and provided fun activities for the students. Thank you, Mrs. Matory, for helping LRES students celebrate Character Counts Day!
Lake Ridge Elementary School celebrated classes that "Kept their 10" in the cafeteria with a science presentation from Dr. Jason Calhoun, Science Supervisor for Prince William County Schools. We'd like to thank Dr. Calhoun for the interesting and fun demonstrations he shared with our school. The students had a great time and learned a lot about science!
Family Reading Night LRES families enjoyed an evening of reading and entertainment when Ronald McDonald presented a program about the fun and magic or reading at our Family Reading Night. The evening ended with the excitement of a free raffle of McDonald's gift cards.
Boosterthon Fun Run
Our Boosterthon Fun Run was held recently, with lots of fitness and fun for our students! This PTO fundraiser provides students with positive messages about fitness and friendship and has a goal of raising money for a set of iPads and an iPad cart for our students. Thank you to our students for their enthusiastic participation and to the many parents who helped with the event.
Third Grade Visits Lake Ridge Park
Our third grade students, parents, and teachers had a wonderful time on their recent field trip to nearby Lake Ridge Park and Marina. While there, they participated in a habitat hike, a game about food chains, and a water cycle activity that focused on transpiration. We'd like to thank Prince William County Parks and Recreation for sponsoring these fun learning activities!
LRES Celebrates French Week
As a French World Languages school, we recently celebrated French Week at LRES. Madame Rigot and Madame Saxon provided special activities in their French classes. As part of the celebration, they served crêpes to students in all classes. We'd like to thank the parent volunteers who helped with our celebration and who donated crêpes, water, and paper products. Thank you!
