Share your middle school stories
Help Lakeridge Middle School Theatre Arts with a salute to the lives impacted by 4700 Jean Road. They are looking for real stories and memories from people who were or are students, staff, parents of students of the school. All stories, serious and funny, are welcome — so long as they are middle school appropriate. If your story is selected, the creative writing class will dramatize it for the Theatre arts department to produce as a spring play in 2020. Not all submissions will be selected, but the hope is that this can be part of a fitting celebration of this building's impact on our community from 1962 to 2020.
