Help in the Holiday Season
It’s that wonderful time of year when families and loved ones gather together and celebrate many traditions. Although this time of year can be very happy for many people, it can be very difficult for families with not enough financial resources. We have many families right here in Lake Oswego who struggle to make ends meet each month. The holiday season only magnifies this situation. Each year, we collect gift card donations from generous families in our community. We are able to put these resources to good use by assisting our families in need here at Lakeridge Middle School. In the past, we have received enough donations to continue the assistance after the holiday season.
If you would like to donate a gift card, please turn it into the front office or drop them in the counselor’s boxes. We will be collecting gift cards from now through Monday, Dec. 16th. The counselors, Monica Binder, Marcy Watts and Callie Charon, will be collecting them and distributing them to families. If you are a family in need of assistance, please contact one of the counselors by email or phone, 503-534-2343. This information is confidential.
6th grade – Monica Binder email@example.com
7th grade – Marcy Watts firstname.lastname@example.org
8th grade - Callie Charon email@example.com
The Art Literacy Training meeting for the 6th grade Egypt project is Wednesday, Dec. 4th 9:15-10:30 am in Room #9. If you plan to help with this project the week of December 10th-13th, please attend the meeting. If you have not yet signed up as a volunteer, but would like to help, contact Heather Wick (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly to be added to the Art Lit email list.

School Store Volunteers 2019-2020 > Sign up HERE
Come and work with the students for 20 minutes during lunch to oversee sales and check-out lines. Working at the the School Store is a great leadership tool; students learn to handle money, customer service, as well as the importance of showing up when scheduled and focusing on the task at hand. This is a valuable hands-on learning and an excellent way to volunteer.
