Dear La Canada School Families and Community Members,

As we enter the Holiday Season, we can’t help but reflect on the year that has passed and all of the wonderful experiences and friendships that this community has provided, both for our children as well as for ourselves.

As co-presidents of the La Canada Flintridge Educational Foundation, we are in the unique position of seeing the direct impact that our community’s incredible generosity provides for our school district. Because of your giving and your continued commitment to our schools, LCHS will be opening the highly anticipated College and Career Center in January of 2023. This service, in conjunction with the IRC and the Wellness Center, will serve as a well-rounded, preparatory collegiate experience for our high school students.

We feel so fortunate to live in this community and to be able to send our children to our award-winning La Canada Schools. From the incredible teachers and the administration on all of our campuses to the parents and volunteers who work tirelessly in support of our kids – we appreciate you!  As 2022 winds down, we would like to thank each and every donor who has contributed to Inspiring Excellence and Nurturing Wellness for All of Our Students. We will continue to work diligently in support of our children’s needs, which includes keeping our class sizes small, providing Spanish, music, art and drama for our elementary school students, offering after school tutoring and reduced Spanish class sizes at 7/8, providing counselors at the high school as well as the funding for the College and Career Center.

If you have not yet given, please know that no gift is too big or small; every dollar counts. Our hope is that each and every family will join in the effort to reach our $2 million dollar fundraising goal for the 2022/2023 school year. Keep in mind that company matching and in-kind donations all go toward your giving for the year. Year end tax deductions are also helpful as you consider donating during the holiday season.

Thank you to our amazing community and families. We appreciate and value your continued support.

 

Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season.

 

Warmly,

Tracey Nelson: Co-President                          Yvonne Lutz: Co-President

 

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.
