Inspire Excellence and Nurture Wellness for All of Our Students
Dear La Canada School Families and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! We are thrilled to share with you that, as a result of our community’s generosity and support last year, the La Canada Flintridge Educational Foundation (LCFEF) not only met our fundraising goal for the year, but exceeded that goal by over $500,000, with donations totaling over $2.5 million! In addition, our Paddle Pledge held at our annual spring gala surpassed our fundraising target, which means we will be moving forward with plans for the highly anticipated Career and College Center at the high school. Once again, our incredible community has come together in support of our kids, empowering our District to Inspire Excellence and Nurture Wellness for All of Our Students.
Every year our volunteer Directors are tasked with organizing the community to help bridge the funding gap between what the District takes in from the state and what we recognize is needed for our kids to flourish. The money that we raise will pay the salaries of our elementary drama, art, music and Spanish teachers. Additionally, LCFEF provides the funding for advances in technology needs as well as LCHS 7/8 STEM offerings. We were also able to add counselors and licensed therapists to provide additional support to our students on all campuses. Our small class sizes allow for optimal learning and growth in the classroom, insuring individualized and personal attention for every student.
La Canada Schools provide an education that is robust, rigorous, and individualized to our student’s specific needs. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for our community’s resolve to continue supporting our students on their educational journey. Your unfaltering support as we move into the new school year will allow us to continue to provide the things that make our schools so remarkable. We look forward to building on our success and making the 2022-23 school year our most successful yet!
