4 Take HEART against Bullying Week Next week, November 18–22, Lake Ridge School is kicking off its 2 nd annual “Take Heart Against Bullying” Week. The week will begin with 4 days of themed fun followed by grade-level assemblies! Please encourage your child to participate in the following theme days by dressing up and supporting our school rules against bullying:

5 Monday (November 18): Wacky Dress Day Tuesday (November 19): Super Hero Day Wednesday (November 20): Team Day Thursday (November 21): Rock Star Day Friday (November 22): School Spirit Day

6 Lake Ridge is one of four local schools recognized by the State of Tennessee as a Reward School, based on TCAP test results for the 2012-2013 school year. This means that our students ranked in the top 5 percent of students statewide for academic achievement. Mr. Phillips received an award at this week’s School Board meeting on behalf of our school. Congratulations to our students and teachers… We are proud of you! HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS???

7 Lake Ridge Yearbook Among the Stars The Yearbook Committee needs your pictures! If you have pictures from field trips, class parties, Fall Festival, sports events, etc., please email them to The school year is off to a great start, and we want to capture your students' memories in the Yearbook! The deadline for early order pricing has passed, but you may still place an order for $35 for a standard cover or $40 for a personalized cover Yearbook. You may download an order form from the school website.

8 WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL’S FUND RAISERS? Lake Ridge is not a Title I school, and therefore is not eligible for some Federal funds that other schools in our area receive. PTA fundraisers help finance school projects and materials that we would not otherwise have. Every dollar received is a gift from friends and family of Lake Ridge, and is used to benefit our school. Thank you for your support!

9 Thank you to the families who donated items to our SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE in October! These were distributed to teachers who requested them for their classes. We will be publishing an updated list each month of supply needs for Lake Ridge classrooms. Please keep this in mind when you are at the store, and pick up an extra supply or two when you have an opportunity. A collection box will be located in the school lobby. Thanks! Teachers were also given new pencil sharpeners, and a Back-to-School supply bag which included: disinfectant wipes, tissue, hand sanitizer, and a ream of copy paper.
