    Hi Leschi Families,

    I am thrilled to share that the 2016-17 Annual Giving Campaign raised nearly $73,000!

    Thank you Mothers and Fathers, Aunties and Uncles, Grandmothers and Grandfathers, Brothers and Sisters, Leschi Teachers & Staff, friends, neighbors, future Leschi Elementary families and Leschi community members (who simply live in the neighborhood and believe in the importance of a good education and strong school) for your donations...every penny you donated is appreciated more than you can imagine and we truly could not do it without your generosity and support.

    I am so grateful for everyone who gave this year, from the families who gave $5.00 to the donors who helped us exceed our goal by matching $8,000.00 toward the end of our campaign. Our goal was to raise $55,000 with a stretch goal of $75,000 - which REALLY felt like a stretch! But I think we pretty much did it - even if we were $2,000 short.

    Every year I am full with gratitude and so amazed by our strong, generous community.

    The money raised through the AGC (and the Jog-a-thon which is coming soon!) is critical to the continuation of support that the Leschi PTA gives to the Leschi teachers, staff and students, making this school the special place that it is. As we approach our annual PTA budgeting process, it is so important that the PTA Executive Board knows they have the financial foundation in place to make plans for the 2017-18 school year.

    I would also like to send out a BIG thank you to Morgan Jones, my partner in fundraising for the past few years - I could not have done it without her!

    I hope you all are feeling revitalized by the beautiful spring sunshine today!
