With students returning to the building, Luther Jackson’s Family Liaison and Social Worker are back to working to eliminate hunger as an obstacle to learning. On the first day, 40 bags were prepared and distributed to very grateful students. Please support the Food Pantry at Luther Jackson today by becoming a Food for Neighbors (FFN) Red Bag Donor. The deadline to have a bag picked up on Saturday, November 7th, is Tuesday, October 27th.
FFN says “Hunger is closer than you think.” and we know all FCPS schools are dealing with it. Supporting FFN is the best way to support your local school. Please share this post with your friends.
On Monday October 12, LJMS PTA will host its first hospitality event for Luther Jackson teachers and staff to show our gratitude during this extraordinary school year. Faculty has been invited to drive through to pick up a boxed lunch from Jason’s Deli and a goodie bag from 11:00am-12:30pm at the Kiss and Ride circle in the front of the school.
How can YOU help?
1) We are asking for donations of helium inflated balloons (with weights if possible) and fresh cut flowers to be dropped off at the front of the school between 10:00am-11:00am on Monday.
2) For any parents who are available on Monday between 11:00am and 12:30pm, please drop by (wearing a mask) for as little or as long as you can to form a socially distanced line along the kiss and ride loop to wave and clap as staff members drive through the line to pick up their items. *Unfortunately, at this time we cannot have students or other children at the school, this event is for parents only.
We will have several limited volunteer opportunities coming in October. To name a few, we are hoping to have Spirit Wear distribution event and the Teacher Appreciation Drive Through. While our capacity remains limited for volunteers based on School Board guidelines, we still will need help! Please look out for these and other chances to volunteer and support our school community efforts.

Please support your child and the student community at LJMS by joining the PTA and making a donation to support the PTA. This is the ONLY school wide fundraiser we hold during the year. Your donation here means that students do not have the task of going door to door to collect money or deliver goods. Your support is crucial in covering the cost of field trips, student planners, staff appreciation, after school clubs, registration for school teams at competitions and more.
Your time is equally important in supporting and enriching the learning experience at our school. Please visit our Volunteer Page for more information.
