    Here is the latest news from the Lakeridge JH Parent Club:

    Thank you to all those who turned out for the Resiliency Panel.  We hope that you found it to be informative and that you left with some tools that will help you support your child.  

    Our next Parent Education night is scheduled for March 12th and will feature Tara Rolstadt of Shattering Stigma.  Tara will be meeting with students that week during their Health and PE periods to talk to them about mental health awareness and resources.  Her parent talk will be a complement to the classroom discussions.  

    The BOX TOP contest ends this Friday so please get those box tops in this week.   Finally, we are planning for next year and have a number of Parent Volunteer leadership positions available.  Maybe you are just the right person!
