SNOWFLAKE GIFT CARD DRIVE FOR LJHS FAMILIES IN NEED
November 14 - December 9th
LJHS counselors are collecting gift cards, cash or checks (made out to LJHS), which will be given to LJHS families who are in need of a little extra assistance this holiday season. Gift cards for groceries, toys, restaurants, etc. are greatly appreciated! Fred Meyer and Target are especially helpful because they cover many different needs. Donations can be brought to the office and placed in the Snowflake Gift Card Collection Box. Questions? Please contact Marcy Watts at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
LJHS COAT DRIVE
November 14-17 and November 28-30
LJHS is working to provide local families in need with some wonderful resources for the upcoming winter season. We are collecting new or gently used winter coats, gloves, and scarves - all sizes welcome, infant to adult. Donations will go to Holiday Hope Sparrow Services and Transitional Youth. All donations will benefit our community first and foremost and any overflow will go to families in surrounding communities.
- We will be collecting donations at school drop off and in bins located outside of the office. If you can help with collections on one more more days (11/14-17 and 11/28-30), please sign up here. Any questions, please contact Christina Monk firstname.lastname@example.org or Kari Curry email@example.com.
- Thank you in advance for all your help and support!
CALLING ALL CROSSING GUARDS
Starting 11/7 from 7:20-8:00 am
We are 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 starting on Monday, November 7th. Contact Kari Curry or Tamara DiVergilio with questions.
