Email Update-8/9/17

Posted on: August 9, 2017
Here are some updates and reminders from LJHS: (This was sent via email on 8/9/17.  To receive email updates, please make sure your email address is correct in Progressbook once school starts.)

The LJHS PTO met on Monday, August 7th, for the first time during the 2017-18 school year. At this meeting, we discussed the annual budget, vacant officer positions, and the 2017 Warrior Walk.   The link below takes you to a google form designed to collect some basic information for the PTO. By completing the form, you will get email updates and learn about PTO volunteer opportunities.

Last year,  the LJHS PTO donated a chromebook cart ($7500), 3 picnic tables for the courtyard ($2000+) , provided funding for school programs like Renaissance and numerous teacher grants to the school community ($3000+).  In addition to completing the survey, please consider taking a leadership role within the PTO.  We are looking for a President (or Vice President) and a Secretary.    

Thank you in advance for completing the survey and staying involved with your child's education while they are at the junior high school.  As children get older, it becomes harder to stay involved with the school.  Participating in the PTO is a great way to be involved.  (And....We have made a commitment to keep all meetings to one hour or less.)  

PTO Information Form-  Please take a minute to fill out this form for the PTO!
