Annual Appeal 2016
We’re kicking off our annual appeal. Please support our kids and our schools. The money raised from this campaign will pay for credentialed classroom teacher and counselors throughout our school district.Give a little. Give a lot. Just give. The Foundation is the only parent organization that can raise funds to hire credentialed classroom teachers and counselors. Substantial donations could mean more individualized attention, smaller classes and additional school counselors. Donations, which can be put on credit cards as well as broken down into interest-free installments, can be made online or via the paperwork brought home by the students.
The Foundation has supported the district by donating over a million dollars in the past four years. Superintendent Dr. Dan Stepenosky expressed his appreciation for the organization’s efforts. “The reality is that in today’s budget environment, successful school districts must develop a culture of local, community giving to be able to continue to offer the educational opportunities our children deserve,” he said. “Our partnership with The Foundation helps ensure each and every one of our schools have the resources necessary for success.”

Going Green Raises Funds.
You may have noticed a new green bin on your campus. The Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools is happy to announce a new program to recycle books, CDs and DVDs from our school and from our homes. Please bring any items that are no longer needed in your home and put them in the bin. You may also schedule a home pick-up for large donations. This program will raise a minimum of $650 every month that will be reinvested in the Library Media Centers throughout the district. So clean out your bookshelves and share the gift of reading all while helping enhance our schools’ resources. If you have any questions about this program, please contact Tina Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
