Final Newsletter of the 2016-17 school year:

Thank you to our Lester Park School community for a successful year! 

Fundraising included our Annual Fall Give campaign and Spring plant sale. The funds raised continue to support after school programming, teacher grants and school garden.

Our Spanish program is in need of a teacher in order to continue this program in the fall. We are open to foreign language options. If you know of someone who may be interested, please contact Christa Lane at christagulland@hotmail.com or email lesterparkfoundation@gmail.com

Thank you to Lego Robotics and Destination Imagination Program volunteers. The success of these programs is due to their time, talent and commitment.

Teacher Grants were offered and $2000 was awarded to staff to supply materials that cannot be funded by school the district. 

School Garden project has come to fruition! Flowers are blooming and with continued care, there will be vegetables this summer/fall. Thank you for your support of this educational project. 

Thank you to all of the Foundation board members including outgoing officers, Matt Licari and Sara Hendrickson. They have committed 4 years of support and dedication to the Foundation board.

Enjoy the summer,

Sarah Ching

Outgoing Board Chair

The Lester Park Foundation believes that public education is the backbone of our community.  

We support a variety of after-school academic-enrichment programs, and provide staff grants to allow 
teachers and staff to purchase materials and implement programs in their classrooms and throughout the
school that the current budget is unable to support.
