The 2020-2021 fundraising drive was a huge success thanks to the generous support of the LMS community. We beat our goal by almost $12,000! MUCH APPRECIATION to our generous current and alum families and all the other valuable supporters who made this possible. 

Support for the LMS Projects Fund is crucial in that it enables the school to commit, on a regular basis, to improvements that enhance the school experience for students, faculty and staff, and parents.

Phase I of the Master Campus Plan, a Food Forest, was completed in the fall of 2019. Edible fruits and vegetables right off the vine! A hands-on learning experience for students from all levels of the school. The fruit trees -  persimmon and pear -- were the first step in this process. Once the space is properly prepared, students will plant a variety of perennial plants to include everything from blueberries to asters to horseradish. 

This was the first in a series of projects envisioned for the Master Campus Plan as part of the Long Range Plan for LMS. 

Now that the pandemic is more "under control", we look forward to returning to the goals of the Campus Master Plan--more specifically, aspects of this important long-term plan that focus on expanding the outdoor classroom experience. The $198,932 raised for the Projects Fund this past fund drive will be an important piece of enhancing what was a strong outdoor learning program during the 2020-2021 school year. Donations through June 30th of 2022 will take this effort even further!
Exciting 2021 summer projects made possible through the Projects Fund include two permanent outdoor structures--one on the Children's House greenspace and the other on the upperfield. If you live nearby, we invite you to come check them out!

Below are examples of other projects that have been made possible over the years--each demonstrating the importance of this Fund: 

  • Stone wall in front of Children’s House
  • Ball court on CH playground
  • Cabinets in CH BASP
  • Classroom cubbies in UE
  • Ten picnic tables (plus 3 child­size tables)
  • Mounted projectors in the Middle School math room and in Upper Elementary
  • Chromebooks for students use
