"SCREENAGERS" MOVIE SHOWING
Wednesday, February 22 -- 6:30 meeting, 7:00 movie -- LJHS
Lakeridge Junior High and the LJHS Parent Club are excited to offer a screening of the documentary Screenagers followed by roundtable discussions of topics brought up in the film. Please join us for this exciting event -- and bring your middle schooler too. Watch for more details about the film and a chance to RSVP as the date approaches. In the meantime, you can see a trailer and read more at the website for Screenagers here at http://www.screenagersmovie.com/ and check out the reviews on Common Sense Media here.
- NOTE: We'll have a brief Parent Club meeting before the movie. We'd love to see you for that too -- and it's a great way to claim a great seat!
CALLING ALL CROSSING GUARDS
M-F, 7:20-8:00 am -- NEED MORE GUARDS, ESP. MON, TUE, THUR & FRI!
We are now down from 3 guards to just 1! We desperately need volunteers to help children cross the intersection of Bryant and Jean roads. The visibility is extremely poor and this will help prevent any further accidents from happening.
- Can you help? Shifts are from 7:20-8:00am. Contact Kari Curry or Tamara DiVergilio to volunteer or with any questions.
