Lorain County Pride Day
Saturday, May 17th is Pride Day in Lorain County. This yearly event is a chance for residents to show how much they care about their communities. No matter how the litter gets there, it affects all of us. Think about how you can help your community by picking up litter in your area. The Lorain County Solid Waste Management District has trash bags and seeds that you can plant to help with your beautification project. Please call the Waste Management office at (440)329-5467 for more information. 
WOW, has it been a bad winter for us this year, and we have had nine “NO SCHOOL” days due to bad weather! Unfortunately we have exceeded our number of allotted days by the state, and we need to make up three days between now and the end of the school year. It has been determined that we will use our last advertised Waiver Day of May 12th as a normal school day, as well as June 4th and 5th. So students will now attend school on May 12th, and their last day will be June 5th instead of June 3rd. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Maybe next year we can send a copy of our school calendar to Mother Nature :-). 
Our local libraries have wonderful activities throughout the year for parents, as well as for students.  To learn more about all the fun things available at your library, visit www.lorainpubliclibrary.org
