Foundation Board of Directors
The LCS Foundation is a team of parent volunteers that focuses primarily on fundraising, grants, and donations to augment and support LCS and its needs above and beyond what is provided through the State's PPR (per pupil revenue). This team, which functions much like a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) at a traditional school, helps to organize and pursue grants, donations and fundraisers, as well as identify and coordinate community outreach and partnership opportunities. Major activities include the annual Golf Tournament
, Benefit Auction, King Soopers
reloadable gift cards, LCS merchandise
and various other activities
. The Foundation works with the Board of Directors and LCS Staff and Administration to determine needs and price points, then prioritizes, plans, fundraises, and implements ideas at the school.
