We all love our Oregon Pinot Noirs but there are so many more amazing wines being produced throughout the state! This is a chance for you to taste some great wine, hear the stories behind the wines you taste and discover the huge variety of wines that Oregon has to offer. The evening will include tastings of at least 6 different wines, snacks to nibble on, and detailed descriptions of each wine to take home. Sign up here

Join Stephanie Rubenstein, Master trainer and LJHS mom, for a 60 minute full body work out at barre3 in Lake Oswego then mingle at the barre for wine and snacks. No experience required and all are welcome. You will also receive a free pass to come back and try another class. Sign up here

Check out the new long-sleeved Lakeridge spirit wear available at the LJHS Student Store! We have a new unisex grey hoodie ($30), a new girls’ scoop neck sweatshirt ($40), and more of the popular ‘trucker’ style hats ($22) and beanie caps ($15). Come visit the Powerhouse School Store during all 3 lunch periods. We accept cash or checks (made payable to LJHS Parent Club). Questions? Email: email@example.com
CALLING ALL CROSSING GUARDS
M-F, 7:20-8:00 am -- NEED MORE GUARDS
We are still looking for parents 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.
LUNCH MONITORS NEEDED
In the LJHS cafeteria
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. Click here to sign up.
