Message from the President and Board

Hello Laurelhurst community, and welcome to our new website for the Laurelhurst Elementary Foundation. We are off to a fantastic start this year. Our board has a new President, new Vice President and a new treasurer. I want to thank Jeri Smith, Jill Wood and Jean Shearer for the long standing commitments to the Foundation, School and Community as they served as officers on the board for many, many years. Jeri and Jill will remain on the board for continuity and wisdom. Thanks again for their commitments!

We also have added three new board members in Greg Harper, Mary Craig, Geoffrey Sidari and Bob Maas. These guys are great and already having an impact on our foundation and breathed some new life into what we are trying to accomplish this year.

There are a number of initiatives under way this year that will continue to help push our endowment from $528,000 as of today, to up and over our goal of $1,000,000. We are sponsoring a Kindergarten Parent night on November 12th, we have added a facebook page, we are now really well connected with the PTA and there schedule and goals, and we plan on reaching out to the entire community through various efforts this year. And the really great news is we still have some grant money that we will donate back to the school this. Stay tuned for news on who that grant will go out to, we are excited about it.

Finally, please take a few minutes to move around the site and see the new content we have added, and remember the beginning of the year is a great time to catch up on your $500 annual pledge you may given to the foundation. Check out the Donate tab, and get that $500 in!
