Superintendent forming LO Legislative Advocacy Committee Lake Orion Community Schools

More legislative actions are having an effect on the financing of our schools, as well as  various aspects of our instructional programs. It is important that our legislators learn the effects, both positive and negative, that their decisions are ultimately having on our students. While educators meet and communicate with our legislators, it is important that they hear from all of our stakeholders. I am inviting members of our community to be a part of a Lake Orion Legislative Advocacy Committee.

If you have an interest in participating in this important initiative, we ask that you complete a short survey indicating your interest and level of preferred involvement. The survey will remain open for two weeks (until April 28). Our goal is to have a broad representation of stakeholders; parents, educators and community members. CLICK HERE to access the survey. Thank you in advance for considering to be a member of the LO Legislative Advocacy Committee.

Marion Ginopolis, Superintendent

Do you have a Screenager? Find out on April 24 Screenagers
Do you find that your student is using a cell phone or playing video games more and more each day? Are they continuously checking their social media? Are they losing sleep or having difficulties paying attention because of these distractions? Are you getting phone calls from the teacher because of too much cell phone usage in the classroom? If you answered yes to any other these questions, then Screenagers is a movie you need to see.
 
On April 24 at 7:00 p.m., the Lake Orion High School PTO will be sponsoring a viewing of Screenagers. This is a documentary about teenagers and the challenges parents face with cell phones, video games and/or technology. The event is open to the entire district. CLICK HERE for a preview!
