Give Sight Globally
 
 
Lovejoy's COOL Club (Charity Out of Love) is hosting a donation drive this month, and we'd love to have your help. We are partnering with VSPglobal's Eyes of Hope® program and collecting used eyeglasses to provide the gift of sight to those in need. Over 2 billion people globally need glasses but are unable to access them. Allowing children to succeed in school or adults to care for their families, seeing clearly provides endless opportunities. We are simply asking you to donate any used pairs of glasses instead of throwing them away so that someone else can be given the same privilege of seeing that you had. 
 
 
The collection box will be located in the commons throughout the month of January - Just look for the gold box with a dog on it and drop the glasses in!

The Lovejoy HS annual "Java and Jazz" joint concert with our Lovejoy Jazz Band and A cappella Choir will be here before you know it. Join us for an evening of great music starting at 7:00PM on Friday, February 28th. The musicians are sounding great and we have a HUGE program to play for all of you. 

We will have refreshments for you to enjoy while you relax and listen. Don't get too comfortable though, as there will be an open dance floor for students and parents alike. The groups will play a combination of some classic swing-era classics and slow ballads. We want a crowded dance floor...don't be shy! 

If you want to be extra prepared, check out these videos on some basic swing moves.

Turn Lucas Green! 
 
 
 
greem3

Did you know that it is estimated to take 500+ years for one styrofoam item to decompose in our landfills?  In an effort to keep styrofoam out of our landfills, the Turn Lucas Green group would like to bring awareness to the Lucas community about our Styrofoam Recycling Program!

The First Saturday of every month, Turn Lucas Green has a Styrofoam Drop Off Event in the Lucas Starbucks parking lot (next to the Lucas Walmart) from 1:00-3:00 pm!  Please rinse, clean, and collect your Styrofoam throughout the month and bring it to the drop-off.


Acceptable Styrofoam items are all marked #6 and include:

  • egg cartons
  • meat trays
  • fast food clamshell containers
  • cups
  • packing materials

We CANNOT accept packing peanuts

Please join Turn Lucas Green Facebook and Twitter groups for up-to-date reminders and Recycle Events going on in and around Lucas!!

Make a difference & Recycle♻️
