All meetings are open to the public, regardless of whether you serve on the council.


The next meeting will be held on Thursday, November 17 at 2:15 in the Media Center. For more information see the SAC page on Landrum’s website https://www-lms.stjohns.k12.fl.us/sac/ or contact Chair Jennifer Myer at jennifer.myer@stjohns.k12.fl.us.

INTRODUCING THE LANDRUM LION SIGN SALE

It's one of our favorite times of the year here at Landrum... that fall crisp feeling (finally) below 90 degrees, one hurricane behind us, Halloween ahead of us ….and now it's time for our FALL fundraiser! The Landrum Lion Sign Fundraiser!


The Landrum Lion Sign Sale is so simple, and yet supports the school in so many ways. Our fundraiser requires absolutely no volunteering, no baking, no RUNNING, no door to door sales of wrapping paper or candy. In fact, your kids won’t be asked to sell anything at all. There is NO walking, swimming or running in ANY activity that has the word “THON” in it! It’s simple and it enhances our school spirit, not only on campus, but in our community as well! You’re welcome.


We ask you for a donation to the school and we deliver right to your yard … a Landrum LAWN sign. Our goal is to see a Landrum sign in every lawn throughout our community! In every development, in every subdivision and in every cul-de-sac we drive around! Your donation will have an immediate impact on the 2022-2023 school year at Landrum.

Show your neighbors and community that you're a proud member of our Den. This fundraiser will run for TWO weeks only and it’s open NOW!
