BACK TO SCHOOL BBQ
Friday Sept. 11, 5-7pm at LJHS, rain or shine!
Bring your family and help celebrate the new year with fellow LJHS families! This is a family event - no drop-offs please!
- Pine Shed Ribs will be cooking up a meal that includes your choice of Pulled Pork or Portabella Mushroom Sliders with slaw, chips, cookie, and a drink.
- Order meals through Monday, September 7. Meals can be purchased online for $8.25 each. If you prepay for meals, your name will be on the list at the event. If you miss the order deadline (Monday, Sept. 7) feel free to pack up a picnic dinner and join us on the lawn.
- Enjoy performances by the Pacer Band, along with the Cheer and Dance teams. The fun continues through the evening at Lakeridge High School's first football game of the season. Take the shuttle from the LJHS parking lot and avoid the search for a parking space (for both parents and students.)
