Lakeridge Elementary School is home to a community of approximately 500 learners from Kindergarten to Grade 8. Our school is located in the southeast corner of the river city of Saskatoon in the "Land of the Living Skies" -- Saskatchewan, Canada.
We work diligently to provide our students with a rock-solid foundation of core educational skills. Our goal is to instil in students the habits of life long learners and to be engaged in charting the course for their own learning destinations. We are focused on our strong learning agenda, which reflects best practices for achieving student academic success through instructional strategies, Assessment for Learning, staff professional development and family involvement. Our goal is to develop ethical, global citizens by empowering students to make a difference in their own lives, in their community and in the world.
LAKERIDGE SCHOOL VISION STATEMENT
We believe that all students and staff can succeed and grow when given opportunities, freedom, trust, and responsibilities in conjunction with high expectations for academic and social progress in a caring, sharing, democratic environment.
A Closer Look ...
Student Achievement: Our students have achieved high recognition at all levels and have participated in local, provincial and national mathematics, science and geography challenges. We are especially proud of our Culture Fair, Science Fair, Project Business Experience and JUST READ initiatives.
Student Learning: We believe that literacy in reading, writing and numeracy is key to student success. We promote reading at school and at home. Our students are engaged in inductive learning through the Picture Word Inductive Model (PWIM) in primary grades, and through inquiry-based learning in Grades 4 to 8. We practice quality, daily physical education. Our fine arts program includes strong music, band, visual art, dance, drama, and drumming components.
