Lake Ridge New Tech Supports Local Businesses


During Teacher Appreciation Week earlier this month, the Lake Ridge New Tech Schools partnered with two local businesses to provide food to Head Start staff.

On May 2, the district purchased family chicken dinners from Strack & Van Til. On May 4, food was ordered from Samia Pizza in Gary. 

In talking with Mike, the owner of Samia, school staff learned that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to close his second location. He told us how much the pandemic impacted his small business and how much the order from our school meant to him. It was such a great feeling to be able to hand him the check, knowing that not only were we expressing our gratitude to our teachers and staff, but we were also supporting a local business!
