PROBLEMS AT THE BRYANT AND JEAN INTERSECTION!
A HUGE thank you to parent volunteer, Cheryl Travers, for helping out at this week!! BUT she can't do it all the time, so we still need more volunteers. Can you help? We are looking for parents to help children crossing at the intersection of Bryant and Jean roads. The visibility is extremely poor and many parents have called the school with concern. Can you help, either before or after school gets out? Contact Kari Curry or Tamara DiVergilio with questions.
EASY WAYS TO HELP THE SCHOOL:
- BRING IN YOUR BOX TOPS: Each one is worth 10 cents! Find participating BoxTops on hundreds of products. Please drop off BoxTops in the bright blue box hanging on the wall outside the LJHS office. Some are expiring soon so don't delay. If you have any questions, please contact the BoxTops Coordinator, Anne Lambson at email@example.com.
- BE A LUNCH MONITOR: Be a part of your child's day by spending half an hour at school for lunchtime activity and outside supervision. It is super easy and doesn’t take much time. Three people needed every full school day. Schedule your preferred days and times. Sign up here.
