Lava Ridge Elementary School is gearing up to host their annual Lion Dash event! The Lion Dash is a fun and exciting initiative that promotes fitness and teamwork among our students and community.

For every $2000 raised we will add another "mystery bucket" to our end of the year assembly. This is where teachers, staff, and parents get a "mystery bucket" dumped over their heads. It could be anything from popcorn to spaghetti to gravy. This fun event is a student favorite they look forward to all year long!


This is a FLAT DONATION event, not a per-mile-pledge. Raffles and prizes will be awarded to students for the participating. 100% of funds collected will go directly to support Music and Physical Education, Running Club, and other PTO-funded programs. Donations are Tax Deductible! Please help us reach our goal by making an online donation today.
