2018/2019 Back To School



It’s that time again to start thinking about bed times, setting alarm clocks, lunches, school events and so much more!

Please welcome our new 2018-2019 PTO Board… Miriam Dunn – Pres., Callie Kackley-VP, Stephanie Walker –  Treasure, Kim Switzer – Secretary, and Katie Speck – Volunteer Coordinator. Read more about them here.

If you haven’t already starting gathering your school supplies you can find the Lava Ridge Elementary supply list here.

If you plan on volunteering at the school this year, please take a few minutes to update your information for your background check (use this link). Please note, background checks need to be completed every two years. With the new renovations to the front end of the school, it’s best to have all your info updated to make that first day back to school as smooth as possible.

Be sure you add Lava Ridge Elementary OPEN HOUSE to your calendar. The OPEN HOUSE will take place on Thursday, August 30th from 3pm-5pm. This is a great time to check out the new updates done over the summer, find out who your new teachers are and get informed with all the new and exciting plans for the school year.

Lastly, if you’re interested in staying updated with PTO events and volunteer opportunities, please take a few minutest to fill out this form. This will provide us with your contact info, update you on major events taking place and give you a heads up with the various volunteer opportunities.
