HELP OUR PTSA EARN $500!!

The University of Oklahoma is conducting a survey regarding the perception of parents of high school age students regarding shop class, vocational/technical training, and careers in construction.  The university is collecting data from schools in four different metropolitan areas (Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Atlanta). The project uses an internet-based survey for parents that takes about 15 minutes to complete.  If they can get 100 survey responses from Lebanon Trail HS parents, they will contribute $500 to our PTSA. Please take a moment to read, respond and share. Deadline is February 28th.
