There will be a meeting for any 8th grade parents interested in serving on the PTA committee to prepare for this year's promotion activities. The meeting will be held on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00pm in the Media Center at Lopatcong Middle School.
On Friday, May 24, Lopatcong Middle School will hold a Parent Visitation Day in conjunction with Career Day activities. I am currently working on a schedule for both events with members of the middle school staff and details will be made available as soon as we make final decisions.
At this time I am actively searching for parents and community members who would be willing to present during our Career Day. If you or anyone you know would be interesting in working with our student body, please contact me at your earliest convenience. I am looking forward to this great event here at Lopatcong Middle School!
The next Parent Liaison will be held on January 16, 2013 at 6:00pm at the Lopatcong Middle School.

I will share my update from that meeting as well as discuss new items.
If you plan on attending, please email me at email@example.com. Also include topics of consideration that you would like to discuss at future meetings.
