ANNUAL Fundraising EVENTS
LCA hosts annual fundraising events that our families are encouraged to participate in; Proceeds for the Pride Auction and Fun Run (Lower School students only).
The LCA Fun Run is held in the spring of each year for lower school students in PreK through 5th grade. It is not just a fundraising program, it advances the mission of the school to prepare students academically, spiritually, and socially for God’s call on their lives. Fun Run gives students the opportunity to work hard, develop school spirit, and work as a team to see a reward for their effort. The proceeds from this year's Fun Run will be used to purchase new iPads, Spheros and Osmos to enhance the student learning experience through technology, Professional Development Training for our teachers, and a new bus to transport our students on field trips and to sporting events, as well as other initiatives within Lower School.
The funds raised from past Fun Run events have been used for purchasing new playground equipment, netbook carts, building a dedicate Lower School STEM lab and purchasing books to increase the number of titles in the in-class libraries.
This year’s Fun Run is scheduled for Friday, March 17, 2017.
LCA AUCTION :: AN EVENING OF GENEROSITY
In 2009, LCA held its first auction. Since that time, our annual auction has raised more than $300,000 collectively. This annual event supports the efforts of our entire Booster club. At LCA, this includes not only athletic teams, but also our band, flag corps, fine arts department, drama and missions teams. Consolidating our efforts across multiple areas helps us more efficiently support the overall mission of the school and prevents businesses from being asked for support by multiple organizations within the school. We believe these funds will benefit all current and future students, from our youngest PreK student to our seniors.
Donations for the auction are received from numerous businesses and members of the community. In addition, each student athlete and band member submits at least one donation and each lower school classroom submits an item that the students have worked on collaboratively. Information on submitting donations can be received by contacting Kerry Towe, Director of Development, by clicking here.
Proceeds from the auction has purchased lighting and a projection screen for the gym stage, new athletic uniforms, band instruments and uniforms, hosted an Atlanta Opera mini-camp for lower school students, built a debt-free athletic training facility, funded campus improvements such as sidewalks & street lighting and sent mission teams to Haiti and Honduras.
