October 27 School pictures retake
SIX DAYS and counting! LJHS Oktoberfest is now less than one week away! Join us in kicking off our inaugural event on Saturday, October 18 at 6pm at the Portland Brewing Company Taproom. There will be live music, a silent auction, a super silent auction, a hearty German buffet, games and more. This is a CASUAL and FUN event benefiting our kids! Come dressed up in traditional Bavarian dress and be entered into our costume contest. Lederhosen and dirndls are always in style for Oktoberfest!
*** For all you U of O Duck lovers, YES, we will have the game on! Watch the Ducks take on the Huskies on two big screens while enjoying hearty German fare!
Buy your tickets online here for $70. You can start the party early by riding the complementary party bus to and from the venue. Sign up for the bus online when purchasing your tickets or email Julie to be added to the bus. Thank you to Vanillawood for being our Responsible Host sponsor of the party bus! THERE ARE VERY FEW BUS TICKETS LEFT, SO PLEASE SIGN UP SOON!
Can’t wait to see what fabulous items have been procured for your pleasure? The online auction catalog is LIVE NOW. EVERYONE can participate in the auction, even if you aren’t able to join us for the event. You can even start bidding now! Many things have a bit of a bidding war going on, so check them out soon before you miss your chance! Check out our Auction Catalog ONLINE! Fantastic packages are added every day, so check back often!
The night of the event, there will be a regular silent auction and a new super silent auction that will be by mobile bidding only. Yes, we’ve gone all high tech and have ventured into the world of bidding on your mobile phone for some very special, unique items. It’s super EASY, super FAST, and super SILENT!
Thank you to our sponsors - Kendall Bergstrom, Directors Mortgage and Wacom! We are also grateful for the generous support of our community and are overwhelmed by the quick and generous responses of so many!
MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK
Have you thought about how you can help your school this year? Some of us have a full time job at home across multiple schools and activities and others also have outside work on top of that! There's something here for everyone. Perhaps it is supporting the auction so our enrichment programs can be funded. Perhaps you can spend 30 minutes a couple of days a week or month at lunch supervision or the school store? What about a hands-on classroom project that is not only rewarding for you, but so valued by the students and teachers? Art Literacy is only three units per year per grade. Still not sure? Contact our Parent Club Team - take the step!
***Our next Parent Club meeting is Oct. 22 at 9:30a in the LJHS conference room (across from the gym).
