On behalf of the staff at Lenski, I would like to thank you for your overwhelming support extended through the Lenski Sprinting for the Stars Fund Run. I am excited to announce that the Lenski students raised $115,000 through their hard work contacting family and friends and getting out in their neighborhoods to raise money! They far surpassed the $80K fundraising goal with over 80% of the Lenski students obtaining pledges for their run.
ONE HUNDRED percent of these dollars go directly to Lenski! Look for some playground improvements along with the majority of funds raised going directly to the PTO's ongoing support of Lenski's staffing budget. This support supplements our district-apportioned funding and improves Lenski's ability to provide specialist teachers to supplement the classroom experience with differentiated, small-group learning for ALL Lenski students. Through all of our efforts, Lenski is able to provide a learning experience that far exceeds what the district funds.
For their efforts, students will be awarded prizes starting on Monday, October 24th. You will be informed via email this week which prizes your student may have earned.
Again, thank you so much for your support. We have such a fantastic community for which we are forever grateful!
Barbara DeSpain, Principal
