Lake Ridge @Home Story Time


Several Lake Ridge teachers and staff members have volunteered to read their favorite children's books on camera.

Beginning on Monday, April 6, a new storytime video will be shared each day on the Lake Ridge Academy website and on Facebook. We hope that the storytimes will give you and your family a moment of routine and something to look forward to each day.

Use this moment to share some meaningful screen time with your children or use the opportunity to take a break for yourself. Our teachers look forward to reading with you!
