“New” Goodwill Bag it Up is coming!
It is time to clean out your closets! LPA student council is collecting gently used clothing and toys for Goodwill’s “Bag it Up” Drive on April 9 & 10 from 7:45-9:00 am.
When we donate, our students “pay it forward” by giving items no longer used to others. In addition, all students who donate will receive a Good Citizen and a YoBe certificate. Donators will be eligible for a drawing to win a family four pack of tickets to Alligator Farm or Walt Disney World. If LPA meets our participation goal, Goodwill will donate $1000 and a computer station to LPA. Please help us help others!

“Updated” Test proctors needed
The testing season has begun and we are in need of proctors for various days throughout the months of March, April, and May. Proctors must be approved volunteers and attend a short proctor training prior to testing. Proctors who have been trained already this school year do not need to be trained again.
We currently have a sign-up genius for the second wave of testing, which is for the remainder of March and early April.
If you are interested in signing up for dates that are not yet posted in sign-up genius please email Carlene Moody at Carlene.Moody@stjohns.k12.fl.us or call 547-7900.
Thank you for your assistance!
