Lids to Benches

LB Families,

We are very close to being able to get our two new benches from the recycling project we ran last school year for “Lids to Benches,” but we still need some more lids and caps to put us at the amount we need. Please bring us all the lids and caps you have saved and drop them off in the high school office by Wednesday, August 2. Our office is open from 8:00 – 3:00 starting on July 24th.

Thank you for helping us to meet our goal!
