Nurturing the Whole Student


Dear La Cañada Families and Community Members,

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! As incoming president of the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation (LCFEF), I extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to the scores of unwavering supporters of our schools. You mobilized last year to bring much-needed funds to bridge the gap between what the La Cañada Unified School District takes in from the state and what we know we need for our kids to thrive. Because of your amazing generosity and determination, we surpassed $2.1 million in donations—making it possible for the District to focus on Nurturing the Whole Student.

We’re strengthening and sustaining La Cañada’s legacy of academic excellence, while investing in opportunities for children at every grade level to meet with licensed therapists as they settle into routines back on campus this Fall. Our elementary students will benefit from an additional  math and English Intervention program, which will include assessments and tutorials for students. Annual fund gifts are replenishing technology needs, including Chromebooks used during virtual learning for our younger TK-3rd graders. The drama program returns to our elementary campuses with the hiring of a new teacher and an expanded schedule, and our TK-6 learners will be creating and exploring with more time allotted with art and music instructors. Class sizes will remain small, ventilation upgrades are coming to 7/8 and the high school, and our 9th-12th graders will have access to an additional counselor.
Your continued support as we kick off this year of fundraising ensures our students learn and grow to their fullest potential. I’m inspired and humbled by our community’s commitment to the greater good, and I look forward to seeing you around campus as my sons begin their journeys in 7th and 9th grades!
In Appreciation,

Joyce Mayne
LCFEF President 2021-22


In addition to its Annual Fund, the LCFEF also runs an Endowment Fund, which invests Endowment-directed donations for the long-term success and security of our schools.
