Junior League of San Joaquin County recognizes the importance of academic success for our community and dedicates many community service hours and funds to help schools reach this goal.

At the Jan. 14 Lodi Unified School District board meeting, Junior League of SJC donated funds to purchase iPads and accessories for a first and third grade class. The Crete Family Foundation partnered with Junior League with a matching grant to make this possible. Lodi schools have shown measurable improvement in academic success with the use of the iPads.

In addition to electronic equipment, Junior League has provided over 3,000 backpacks, cases of school supplies, books, and other school items to multiple schools in various districts. Dedicated Junior League members have assisted in various reading programs, become pen-pals with older students, participated in one-on-one reading with young students as well as school wide read-in sessions.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
