Middle school students who are hungry after school are welcome to join us at Food Fan Club at the Main Library on Thursday, April 24, at 4 p.m. for a blind taste test! Those who correctly identify the most foods will win a prize!
This collaboration with the Santa Monica Farmers Market aims to educate tweens and teens about organic, healthy food. While they taste delicious and exotic fresh and dried fruits, as well as veggies, a Farmers Market teacher talks about who grows the food, where it comes from, and its history.
The program is aimed at grades 6-12, and is quick, about 45 minutes long. Ideal for after-school snacking! Hope to see some students from Lincoln there. Food Fan Club takes place in the Children' s Activity Room at the Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard.

CIF varsity lacrosse is coming to Santa Monica High School this coming season, spring 2014 – as long as we raise $50,000 in the next three weeks. This is a huge task, but together we can do it! Here’s what you can do to pitch in:
$1,000 if you are a current Santa Monica High School family (you won’t need to pay Spring 2014 registration fees!) $500 if you are a Santa Monica middle school family $250 if you are a Santa Monica elementary school family $100 or more for all other supporters of Samohi lacrosse
Any amount will help! Your donation will provide the seed money to establish the legacy of Santa Monica High School Lacrosse, champions for many years to come!
2. Solicit tax-deductible donations from friends, families, and business associates – they can go directly to the same link above. Make sure they know that varsity lacrosse is a way to give kids self-confidence and a sense of community, teaches them values like teamwork, dedication, and hard work, keeps them engaged, focused and striving to do their best, and improves graduation rates. Wow!
3. Run the Santa Monica 5000 5k/10k on October 6 – register at http://www.santamonica5000.com. $5.00 of your entry fee will go to Samohi girls and boys lacrosse, and by registering as a fundraiser, you can ask grandma and grandpa, aunts and uncles, and the lacrosse family down the street to make a donation in your name to Samohi lacrosse (details to follow).
4. Attend the Santa Monica Vikings Youth Lacrosse fundraising party on September 21 at 6:00 p.m. This is a great way to meet the Santa Monica Lacrosse community, and the $25 suggested donation will go directly to Samohi girls and boys lacrosse (details to follow). GO VIKINGS!
