Welcome back! I send a special welcome to our new families. I hope you all had a wonderful summer and you are ready for another great year. I am honored to be serving as your Parent Club President this year and I’d like to share a little about us and what have in store.
The Lakeridge Junior High School Parent Club is our version of a PTO. We are community builders and fundraisers. We are here to support our students, teachers, and families. We work hand in hand with Principal Kurt Schultz and his staff to help make sure our students have what they need to learn and the teachers have what they need to create the best learning environments. We also work hard to make sure our parent community stays informed and has lots of opportunities to get involved. Check out our website for more information.
Our success depends upon our parent community. WE NEED YOU! Please join! Dues are only $35 and with them you get access to our online school directory and voting privileges on this year’s Parent Club decisions -- plus your dues directly support students and staff. If financial need prevents you from joining, please contact Principal Kurt Schultz. It is our hope that all families can participate. Also please check out the many volunteer and committee opportunities -- any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Our major fundraiser of the year is our Oktoberfest Auction. This incredibly FUN party will be on Saturday, October 15 (adults only) at the "Hofbrauhaus" at the Embassy Suites in Tigard. The money we raise from this event is usually spent in the first half of the year, so all grade levels benefit. Last year, we were able to benefit every student and almost every classroom with the dollars we raised. We purchased Chromebooks, musical instruments, science equipment and audio visual equipment. So, please JOIN THE PARTY AND GIVE! Visit the event website to buy tickets, donate items, become a sponsor and/or volunteer!
The Parent Club Board will be at school registration (August 17 & 18) to assist you and your students. We will have details on our Parent Welcome Coffee (Sept. 7), Back to School BBQ (Sept. 9), Oktoberfest (Oct. 15), Parent Club membership, the school store, spirit wear and more. And don't forget to bring your checkbook or credit card to join the Parent Club and to buy Oktoberfest tickets, BBQ tickets, and/or spirit wear, etc. Please plan on stopping by and saying hi. We look forward to meeting you!
