LOSD to host first bond update meeting
The Lake Oswego School District has scheduled its first meeting to update the community on planned improvements funded by the 2017 bond measure. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20, in the cafeteria at Lakeridge Junior High (4700 Jean Road, Lake Oswego).
The $187 million bond includes funds to replace Lakeridge Junior High and the LOSD's swimming pool; create makerspaces and STEM centers; improve security, safety and technology; and address a decade of deferred maintenance at all 10 of the district's schools.
"The community has been our No. 1 partner every step of the way," said Randy Miller, executive director of project management. "These meetings will be a great opportunity for parents and community members to learn more about the bond, what projects we started in 2017 and what they can expect in the coming years."
Staff members from the district bond office and representatives from the Bond Accountability Committee, the School Board, and the Superintendent's office have been invited to attend the meeting. There will be a Q & A session after Miller's presentation; child care will be provided, and refreshments will be served.

Study for finals at the public library
Students who need a quiet place to study for upcoming final exams need look no further than the Lake Oswego Public Library (706 Fourth St.). Starting Saturday and continuing through Wednesday, staff will have tables set up from 3 p.m. to closing for group studying in the children's library, and they'll provide granola bars and juice to help students power through.
'Catch of the Day' fundraiser returns
Fresh crab. Lakeridge High baseball. The Super Bowl.
What do those three seemingly unrelated items have in common? Easy — it's the Pacer baseball team's 12th annual "Catch of the Day" Crab Dinner fundraiser.
Supporters of Lakeridge High baseball, Lakeridge sports or just lovers of fresh crab are encouraged to support the "Catch of the Day" Crab Dinner, one of the most important and successful fundraisers for Pacer Baseball every year.
Proceeds from the event will help provide funding to support resources and programs such as facilities maintenance and improvements, equipment purchases, uniforms, umpires, player transportation, spring break trip, summer ball and many other needs.
Supporters can place their orders for $35 through Wednesday, Jan. 24, and then pick up their take-home dinners on Feb. 3 — just in time for Super Bowl Sunday. Each dinner includes: 1/2 pound of Oregon Dungeness crab meat (no shells); two side salads (coleslaw and potato salad); two rolls with butter; and cocktail sauce and lemon.
Participants will pick up their meals between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Feb. 3 at the Lakeridge High School main entrance, 1200 Overlook Dr. in Lake Oswego (all meals not picked up during this time will be donated).
