Lake George Elementary School is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year!

Over 60 LGES retired administrators and teachers, LGES alumni, and special guests "came home" to commemorate the occasion with current students, faculty, and staff on Friday, September 21, 2018.


The assembly featured music by k-12 band, choir, and drumline; a brief history of the vision behind our innovative school; and a slideshow of memories from the building's first 50 years and the people who made it "A Great Place to Grow." 


During the assembly, the Lake George Elementary School was proud to recognize retired LGES Principal Mr. Robert Ross for his dynamic leadership, commitment to excellence, and dedication to the children of Lake George. Under his leadership from July 1, 1977-June 30, 1997, the school achieved the following accolades: 

  • 1985-86: National Recognition School of Excellence
  • 1991-92: National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence
