LJES Class Basketball Nights Are Coming (3/23 & 3/26)

Attention Parent and/or Guardian;

Come and help us celebrate some “March Madness” by attending our annual “LJES Class Basketball Game Night” held at Bernheim Middle School.  We have been working hard across all grade levels in P.E. on basketball. Students have been busy improving their dribbling, passing, and shooting skills in basketball.   Our students would love to show you what they have learned. Concessions will be available for purchase both nights thanks to our PTA. Admission to the game will be donations only.  All donations will go to help fund our P.E. department and will help in the purchase of additional P.E. equipment and supplies. Please see the schedule below to see when your child will be playing basketball.  Hope to see you at the Bernheim Middle School gymnasium for some basketball action!
