IMPORTANT INFORMATION

LJHS Play "Winnie the Pooh" Moved to March 1 & 2

Winnie the Pooh is Christopher Robin's little bear, who would like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes, and stopping frequently to eat "a little something." However, he finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the dismal Eeyore, anxious Piglet, wise Owl, playful Tigger, and take-charge Rabbit. Pooh's intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey keeps getting him into trouble. What will happen when a new neighbor arrives in the Hundred Acre Woods threatening the peace with of all things... a bathtub!

Schiesher Great Kindness Challenge Moved to Week of Feb 4th

The Schiesher Great Kindness Challenge has been moved to next week due to the weather cancellations this past week.  Please check Mrs. Payne's newsletter for information!
