IN THE NEWS...
The Lake Oswego Review had an article last week on our very own Lakeridge Junior High parent, Cheryl Travers, highlighting her wonderful volunteer work as crossing guard for our students. Way to go, Cheryl! Click here to see the article. Want to help Cheryl out? See below for details.
VOLUNTEER NEEDS - PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!
- Crossing Guard at Bryant & Jean Intersection - We are still 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.
- 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.
