Empowering Education: A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Supporters

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the compassionate donors who together raised a staggering $21,880 to support summer school in the LWSD. Your unwavering support has enabled us to make a profound impact on the lives of students in our school district.

With these funds, we will provide scholarships and transportation assistance for students experiencing homelessness, ensuring they have equal access to education. Additionally, we will enrich the experiences of students attending our Title 1 Summer Schools by funding engaging activities and covering transportation costs. Lastly, we will be using a portion of the funds to provide scholarships for grade enhancement. Your generosity has ensured that all students have equal access to the extraordinary educational opportunities in the LWSD.

We extend our deepest appreciation to each and every one of you who contributed to this campaign. Together, we are creating a brighter future, where every student can overcome obstacles and achieve their full potential.
