This past weekend, Food for Neighbors hosted a food collection event at Luther Jackson Middle School. The five year old non-profit received a record amount of food: over 21,000 pounds of food from over 1,200 households. Several special guests were in attendance, including LJMS principal Mike Magliola, and school board members Karl Frisch, Lara Jane Cohen, and Dr. Ricardi Anderson. Read more here.
The PTA is excited to continue our work with the LJMS Administration as we work to expand the structure and outreach of our in-school food pantry. A number of our students and their families rely on the food support we are able to offer through this program. By working with Luther Jackson’s Family Liaison and Social Worker, we are uniquely positioned to eliminate hunger as an obstacle to learning.
Reflections is a National PTA-sponsored program that encourages students to express themselves through the arts. Students can submit work in the following categories: Dance, Music, Literature, Photography, Film Production, Visual Arts, and Special Artist. The art is judged a the school level with the winner in each category moving on to the County level, then District level, State level, and finally National level.
There are two ways to become a member or donate to the PTA:
Join or donate online with a credit card
NOTE: you will be charged a credit card fee of 3.3% + 0.50 per transaction.
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.
